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!

Overall predictions for the West

Rockets
Lakers
Warriors

Nuggets

Pelicans
Mavs
-----------
Wolves
Blazers
Thunder
Suns
Spurs

Think they WAY underestimate the Blazers and semi-underrate the Spurs. No way Blazers miss the playoffs and Suns are better than the Spurs.

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

"I'm looking forward to seeing those two come together. I think they've got something brewing down there. Mark Cuban is always going to support his guys and put them in the best position, so that's a franchise I'm definitely watching the next few years."

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.
