The Dallas Mavericks now hold a record of 48-29 and they managed to jump over the slumping Golden State Warriors to have third place in the NBA Western Conference standings. This team is now on a three-game winning streak and much credit goes to Luka Doncic for leading the squad. Another player who was instrumental in the Mavericks’ strong run was Spencer Dinwiddie who they traded for Kristaps Porzingis. Jalen Brunson has also given the team extra gear running alongside Doncic in running the team’s offense.
