Doncic and Porzingis:

    The Dallas Mavericks are not even close to what they looked like in the Orlando Bubble last season. A slow start in the 2021 campaign landed them somewhere at the bottom of the Western Conference, but it was Luka Doncic who rallied a comeback. They are now ninth in the West with a 14-15 record. However, the Mavericks are making headlines because of a trade rumor around their second superstar, Kristaps Porzingis. The question is, should they actually consider moving him? When did the rumours of Kristaps Porzingis’ trade start? The Dallas Mavericks went up against the Memphis Grizzlies after being held back home due to weather delays. They were able to start from where they left off, winning four out of their five last games. Their well-rested team was able to defeat Memphis 102-92 with ease. The leading scorer for the Mavericks was Tim Hardaway Jr. who finished the...
    The Dallas Mavericks were touted as one of the best teams this season. However, they struggled to find their groove in the first few games. But in their last 3 fixtures, Luka Doncic and co. are playing terrific. They are on a 3 game winning streak and they have another good news for them. Their second superstar Kristaps Porzingis is returning to action after missing the last few months due to a knee injury. Porzingis picked up this injury in the Mavericks’ battle against the LA Clippers in the 2020 postseason. Although Porzingis was set to make his season debut against the New Orleans Pelicans, fans will have to wait for the Big Man’s debut. Right after the news broke about Porzingis’ return, another news came in that the Mavs vs the Pelicans game has been postponed. Regardless of the delay, Porzingis will soon enter the court in a Dallas...
    NBA action resumes as the underperforming Dallas Mavericks take on the over-achieving Orlando Magic. They face off at the American Airlines Center at 8:30 pm tonight. It will be the battle of the European All-Stars as Luka Doncic leads his team against Nikola Vucevic’s men. The Mavericks started their season without Kristaps Porzingis. Missing a player of his caliber was always going to hurt, but the inconsistent and inefficient displays from Luka Doncic have also hurt them. He has turned it up in their last two games, which is why the Mavs were able to come away with wins. The Magic had a dream 4-0 start, which was halted by the 76ers. They lost unexpectedly to the Thunder in the following game, but then revived their momentum with back-to-back wins against the in-form Cavaliers. Last night they had an embarrassing 42 point defeat against the Rockets. So they will be...
    Since the 2020 offseason, rumors have been swirling around veteran shooting guard DeMar DeRozan and his future with the San Antonio Spurs. He may have opted into the final year of his contract but if they struggle to consistently win games in the 2020-21 NBA season, the Spurs may consider moving him before the 2021 trade deadline. Once he becomes officially available on the trading block, several teams that are in dire need of additional star power are expected to express a strong interest in adding him to their roster. One of his potential suitors on the market before the 2021 trade deadline is the Dallas Mavericks. In a recent article, Brett Siegel of NBA Analysis Network suggested a way on how the Mavericks could form a “Big Three” of DeRozan, Luka Doncic, and Kristaps Porzingis this season. In the proposed scenario, Dallas would be sending a package that includes...
    The Dallas Mavericks made a very crucial move when they traded to bring in Kristaps Porzingis. The 7’3″ Latvian was a much needed star alongside their franchise cornerstone, Luka Doncic. The Latvian has been impressive in his time with the Mavs. If not for his injury against the Clippers, the Mavericks could have been very close to beating the Clippers side in the playoffs. 13 July 2018, Berlin, Germany: Kristaps Porzingis (R), power forward of the New York Knicks plays with youth players of the basketball team ALBA Berlin during a joint training session.

    With the improvements shown by Luka Doncic and Kristaps Porzingis, it’s no longer surprising that the Dallas Mavericks are one of the teams that are expected to make a huge noise in the 2020-21 NBA season. However, in order to have a legitimate chance of fully dominating the loaded Western Conference and capturing the Larry O’Brien Trophy, some people believe that the Mavericks still need a third star that would help Doncic and Porzingis carry the team. One of the most realistic targets for the Mavericks before the 2021 trade deadline is All-Star power forward Kevin Love of the Cleveland Cavaliers. In a recent article, Brett Siegel of NBA Analysis Network included Love on his list of intriguing players that Dallas should pursue this season. Compared to other superstars who could be available on the trading block before the 2021 trade deadline, the Mavericks wouldn’t be needing to pay the...
    Since the 2020 offseason started, rumors have been swirling around All-Star power forward Blake Griffin and his future with the Detroit Pistons. He may remain committed to the Pistons but with the team heading into an inevitable rebuild, most people see him as an odd fit on their roster. Despite his injury history and lucrative contract, Griffin is still expected to receive plenty of interest from teams that are in dire need of a frontcourt boost and additional star power on their roster. One of the potential suitors of Griffin before the 2021 trade deadline is the Dallas Mavericks. According to Zach Buckley of Bleacher Report, the Mavericks may consider sending a package that includes Tim Hardaway Jr., James Johnson, and a 2025 top-eight protected first-round pick to the Pistons in exchange for Griffin. “While some might see Blake Griffin as damaged goods, others will note he’s literally a single...
    Since the departure of LeBron James in the summer of 2018, rumors have been continuously swirling around All-Star power forward Kevin Love and his future with the Cleveland Cavaliers. As of now, the Cavaliers are yet to make Love officially available on the trading block but if they decide to move him before the 2021 trade deadline, several teams that are in dire need of a frontcourt boost and additional star power are expected to express a strong interest in adding him to their roster. One of the potential suitors of Love on the trade market is the Dallas Mavericks. In a recent article, Lee Tran of Fadeaway World suggested a blockbuster deal that would enable Love to form the Mavericks’ Big Three with Luka Doncic and Kristaps Porzingis next year. In the proposed scenario, the Mavericks would acquire Love by sending a package that includes Dwight Powell, Maxi Kleber,...
    The Dallas Mavericks were among the teams that managed to surpass the expectations from them last season. However, to challenge powerhouse teams like the Los Angeles Lakers and the Los Angeles Clippers for the Western Conference supremacy, the Mavericks must be aware that they need to surround Luka Doncic and Kristaps Porzingis with more star power. One of the potential trade targets for Dallas this offseason is Zach LaVine of the Chicago Bulls. According to Brett Siegel of NBA Analysis Network, the Mavericks could offer a package that includes Tim Hardaway Jr., 2022 and 2025 first-round picks, and 2021 and 2023 second-round picks to the Bulls in exchange for LaVine. The All-Star shooting guard is yet to officially demand a trade from the Bulls but Siegel believes that at this point in his career, he would definitely love to play for a team that has real aspirations to win the...
    LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. (AP) — Paul George finally found his way. The All-Star guard scored 35 points and the Los Angeles Clippers rolled past the Dallas Mavericks 154-111 on Tuesday night to take a 3-2 lead in their first-round Western Conference playoff series.

(Getty Images) George had shot 29% in the series and endured fans’ wrath on social media. He said he spoke to the team psychiatrist before Game 5. “I mean, whatever it was, the bubble got the best of me,” George said. “I was just in a dark place. I really wasn’t here. I checked out. The past couple of games, it was just difficult.” George said...
    The NBA is in a thick soup as far as its viewership over the years is concerned. Recently, Kevin Durant took to Twitter to give his opinion on the possible cause of the dearth. But the Western Conference is not disappointing anyone, as the post-season has produced some eyeball grabbing rivalries. One such brewing enmity is between the LA Clippers and the Dallas Mavericks, who are locked at 2-2.  The Dallas Mavericks won their last outing against the Clippers in OT. The Mavs almost lost the match when Luka Doncic pulled a picture-perfect three-pointer and saved the game. Game 4 proved that we cannot take the underdogs lightly.  LA Clippers vs Dallas Mavericks injury updates For the Clippers, the health report is healthy. They have guard Patrick Beverley as ‘doubtful’ in game 5 as the head coach Doc Rivers said nothing clearly about his playing status. Patrick Beverley remains...
    LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. (AP) Kawhi Leonard and the Clippers had enough answers to withstand Luka Doncic’s record-setting debut – especially after his running mate was thrown out of the game. Leonard had 29 points and 12 rebounds, and the Clippers got a big boost from the ejection of Kristaps Porzingis to beat the Dallas Mavericks 118-110 on Monday night in Game 1 of their Western Conference playoff series. Doncic finished with 42 points, most ever by a player in his first postseason game, and added nine assists and seven rebounds. He had the No. 7 seed hanging right with the Clippers for much of the night. ”I mean, he’s great,” Leonard said. But Los Angeles pulled into the lead when Porzingis was ejected for picking up his second technical foul in the third quarter and Doncic couldn’t bring the Mavs all the way back. ”KP had my back. He...

Thinking about the immediate future is usually depressing, so I tend to think about the far future. I was doing just that the other afternoon while playing NBA 2K. I was the GM of the Dallas Mavericks, and we were damn good. That got me thinking about the real-life viability of the Luka Doncic-Kristaps Porzingis pairing. Honestly? The sky is the limit. © Provided by The Big Lead Porzingis played for the first time in a while this year. He tore his ACL in February 2018 and was traded to the Mavs a year later,...
