It might come down to survival of the fittest in the west.

Keeping a healthy team will be critical and why I keep harping on the Mavs lack of protecting KP adequately imo.

Interesting article: https://www.espn.com/nba/insider/sto...every-nba-team

It puts the Mavs in 7th, at 47 wins. It shows the Rockets leading the league with 53 wins---indicating it's a wide open free for all next year.

I think 47 wins sounds about right. Mavs are going to be one of the surprise teams in the West.

Hey guys!
I think Mavs will hit 45 wins this year. At least. Maybe it's enough for the playoffs. And in the long term I am pleased with the situation in the club and also summer trades. The goal here is not to make a perfect team for this year, it's to make one for the future. For a period of 5 years. And if you want to build around Luka the goal is not to bring one big star. It's to bring potential stars of the future. It's not about exceptional players, it's about an exceptional team. And I think this might be possible this year.
As you may know I am Luka's fellow citizen and seing Boby and KP playing with Luka makes me so hyped.
Here's to waking up in the middle of the night. Cheers!

This doesn't seem and but I think the only team that are out for sure might be the Suns and Wolves. The Suns might actually be pretty good with Rubio playing next to Booker. Rubio is still a very good pass first PG who doesn't like to shoot and thats exactly what Booker and Ayton need.

The Spurs are a complete unknown but they made the playoffs last year and were not healthy at all. I would think they will be good again.

I think people are way UNDERESTIMATING the Thunder and Blazers.

Thunder are the perfect team for CP to run as much as I dislike him.

CP/ DS (very good one/ two)
SGA
Roberson
Gallinari
Adams

......is a very solid team.


Blazers are pretty much coming back with the same core and some really good new role players.

All I know is that the Mavs make the playoffs and the other 2 spots could be any of the remaining teams IMO, except the Wolves.

Kevin Durant says Mavs 'have something brewing' with Luka Doncic and Kristaps Porzingis

Man, I was just looking close at our schedule and we have an absolutely brutal stretch of 12 games from Jan 8 - Jan 31st including a BTB-BTB.

Denver
LA Lakers/Philly (BTB at home)
GSW/SAC (BTB on road)
Portland
LA Clips
at Portland
at Utah
Followed by another BTB (at OKC and then home to Phoenix)
at Houston

The good part is that all of February and up to March 10 (about 17 games) is probably the easiest part of our schedule.

Yea it might get a little dark at that point, but at least we will have the opportunity to gel and gain continuity before that. Optimistically we could be 6 or 7 games in the green at that point, but either way if we can get through that tough stretch near .500, we have a shot at pushing to the playoffs after. Realistically we could use another veteran to get us over the hump and who knows what opportunities might be available in making a positive move.

It's gonna be tough on those teams during that stretch since they know Dallas is coming. It's gonna be the Luka and Kristaps show.

Macmahon:

Mavs haven’t determined details of Kristaps Porzingis’ load management, but team will “err on the side of caution.” Carlisle says he expects to be “very careful” with early back-to-backs.

The Dallas Mavericks have swept the defending Champions (L.A. Lakers) and beat the Miami Heat after Bosh and James went there. Is it a far stretch to believe that the Mavericks could again have the Lakers and James' number this season in the playoffs? I think not. All fans better have their brooms ready.

I wonder what happened. Weren't the Mavs 50:50 a few weeks ago at 538? Not that I disagree, just doesn't make sense to get a team a 18% boost during pre-season.

538 always had the Mavs high. It's only changed a few games over the entire offseason.

46-36 - today
46-36 - Sept 26
46-36 - Sept 19
46-36 - August 22
45-37 - August 8
45-37 - August 1
44-38 - July 25

Prior to the season last year 538 had us at 28-54. We were actually 33-49: a little lower than we actually were, but we also had a crazy first 20 games where we really overperformed, which really surprised everyone.

This.

50-59 wins is the range I would give...so long as KP and Luka remain healthy.

I may be a total homer, but I see the West and the league as being wide open.

I bet Kawaii has a down year...maybe even aggravates his injury...

The Lakers are hollow...

Houston will suck.

GSW is not the same even once Klay comes back...if he comes back.

Luka & KP might end up being the most dynamic offensive duo in the league.

They are hungry...like SUPER hungry...it shows in their off season prep that was lead by Luka and KP.

We don't have Dirk killing the defensive rating hah!

The team seems pretty well rounded...we can play big, small, inside, outside...

So long as the defense is good (top 10), we will be a force to reckon with no doubt.

And I predict the Mavs will come out sharp from day 1 and put the league on notice.

I wouldn't be suprised (nor disappointed) to see us finish around the .500 mark. I do think we have the potential for a better record if we stay healthy (say 46-48 wins) but the west is just brutal yet again so it's gonna be very tough, especially with a young team.

Regardless of that I can't wait for this season to start, haven't been this excited in years tbh

Worst part of the West is that 66% of our games are against the West. West is not only loaded, every team in the West plays twice as many games against the West as the East.

I love the optimism coming from the team and fans about this season, but the west is just ridiculously tough. I still think 40-45 wins is where we sit at. The important thing is for the team to grow from game 1 to 82 and not somehow regress in January/February when slumps in previous teams tend to happen.

Still as optimistic as I was when I wrote that post, in fact, probably even more optimistic. KP is in the best shape of his life, they fixed his left kinetic chain issues, I think he will stay healthy this time. Wright and Powell are such great fits next to these two as well. The former is actually a perfect compliment for our two-man game, I don't see any team successfully defend Luka in that scenario (pick and pop with KP, pulling up or find one of the best rollers in the league).

Wright not as great of a fit on offense unless his shooting really improves, but he is an amazing fit on defense. Then you have Seth who is in my opinion an underrated defender, and obviously one of the best shooters in the league. I think our floor if healthy is 45 games, and our ceiling is above 50 for sure. Stars win in this league, and star talents usually don't have to wait until 25-26 to make the playoffs. Talent finds its way, and we have the most talented young duo in the league.
