Assuming no injuries to KP or Luka, and reasonable production from the others, 45 wins.

I posted part of this article in the KP thread, but there's this bit about the Mavs chances of making the playoffs as well...

https://hoop.nba.com/nba_hoop_featur...d-the-rim-115/

Quote:
The bottom of the West is looking like a dogfight. If we look at the current over/under projections from DraftKings, none of Dallas, New Orleans or Sacramento are currently projected to make the playoffs. Which of those three do you think has the best chance to surprise with a playoff berth?

Jager: Dallas is my dark horse for this upcoming season. Luka was a standout rookie last season and I think he’s going to make an even bigger push come this upcoming season. While Kristaps Porzingis is coming off an ACL injury that took him out for over a year of action, I think Porzingis will do perfectly fine with a piece like Luka next to him that compliments his style of play. Another guy to look out for in that Mavs lineup is Dwight Powell. Powell was one of the best pick & roll finishers last season with the Mavs and could easily make a difference for this Mavs team. Overall this team is most likely going to be the most dangerous teams in the pick & roll/pick & pop, but I do think the lack of depth is going to hurt them early on and be the reason they aren’t considered a playoff team. But say they start clicking and some of these other top west teams start dealing with injuries, I see the Mavs finding their way back into the playoffs once again.

Mistry: I wouldn’t be surprised if the Mavericks claimed that 7 or 8 spot in the West. I think most of us have forgotten how good Kristaps is and it will be interesting to see Luka Doncic can do in his somphomore season. They’ve got some good pieces in Dwight Powell, Delon Wright & the reacquisition of Seth Curry, who pretty much proved he could compete as a pretty good guard in the NBA last season, backing up Damian Lillard. It’s going to be interesting to see how the team will operate without Dirk’s presence and experience in the locker-room, but don’t count out Dallas this year.

Singh: I’m giving the edge to the Dallas Mavericks. Luka Doncic is about to take the next step in his career, which could include an All-NBA team appearance. However, it’s not only Doncic that’s looking to take the next step in his career. There’s a long list of players on the Mavericks roster that are still young and establishing themselves as NBA players. Dwight Powell, Maxi Kleber, Dorian Finney-Smith, Delon Wright and Jalen Brunson all have the potential to grow into prominent roles within the Mavericks system. Some, specifically Powell, began to do that last year. The question mark for the Mavericks is the health of Kristaps Porzingis. It’s already been said that they’ll manage Porzingis’ load and ease him back, but how much can the Mavericks afford to rest their prized 2019 trade deadline acquisition. The Mavericks can squeak into the playoffs, but they need to be smart when choosing the games they rest Porzingis, specifically early in the season when West teams can fallout of the dog fight quickly.

Why is Powell put so much ahead of Maxi? Maxi was better defensively last year. Not a big deal, but Wurtzburgers need their due.

I think it's because even the best version of Maxi duplicates a lot of Porzingis' strengths, and the two don't seem likely to play together very often. I like Maxi a little better than Powell too, but I doubt he plays as big a role for us next year.

I'll be fine with the season as long as it isn't over by February 1st. Wonder when single game tickets go on sale as well. Always seems kinda hard to find that out every summer.

Kind of interesting that we don't seem to have any games that start later than 8:30pm CDT. Usually we would have a couple games against west coast teams later than that. Love it!

Edit: NVM, seems the times are local so we do have some games that start later than that. Need more coffee it seems.

Almost every 2nd night of a B2B is against bad teams or borderline playoff teams. Thats suck incredible because you are going to lose a few unnecessary games just because of tired legs. Would be much better to have the 2nd night games against contender and just rest KP etc

I think his load management will be first 1/4 of the season. The rest will be based on his performance and his conditioning and how he is recovering from games.

And if we're f'in winning or not. Load management needs to take a back seat to winning. We didn't pay him 158 million to take games off. If he isn't healthy by now, then he likely won't ever be.

I'm sure he'll be rusty at first which is fine, but load management in my estimation is 30mpg to start versus 35. Nothing more.

For me it depends on if load management is to help him come back from the injury, or if load management is to help prevent another injury.

If he is taking games off or playing severely reduced minutes to help get his stamina back, that's really disappointing at this point. However if the training staff believes that shaving a few minutes here and there at opportune times could lessen the chances of a season (or career) ending injury, I'm all for it. Push him to the max and take those chances if and when we are fighting in the semi or conference finals.

I wouldnít be shocked if he plays 60 games at 25-30 minutes. Something like a mix of Embiidís first and second seasons.

Yea. Load management makes total sense in a lot of cases for recently injured or injury prone guys but you know how people get. They see it used and all the sudden it's the best invention ever and must apply across the board. It's being overstated a bit in regards to the the upcoming full season for KP imo.

Yeah, people have way overstated load management with KP. If he needs his minutes reduced for more than a month or so, then he isnít worth max contract. You donít pay a guy as much as we just did only to play him 28-30 MPG over the next 4 years.

Anybody see any recent pics of KP?

Skin said KP has beefed up a bit and has added some decent muscle tone but I haven't found any recent pics.

Ok...just found something.

We may see some management due to rust but I have said this a while back, KP has had 20 months to recover and by most reports could have returned at the end of last year. There is no reason to manage his minutes if he shows in the first 10-15 games that he is not rusty and can play at a higher level.

Load management goes beyond minutes played though. The type of role KP plays will be a factor as well.

I agree KP should be playing 30+ minutes per game but I'd hate to see him eventually become our frontcourt workhorse. I'd like to see him more in a Dirk type role where he is somewhat protected.

I know the league has changed, and I know we paid him a lot, but I'd definitely hate to see him being thrown out there virtually on day one with the expectations of being our frontcourt blue collar workhorse. Powell will be expected to be that guy I know but he has limits against certain players.

That part of KP's game should be managed imo, not so much minutes. I've questioned all along whether Rick will have the proper tools to manage that part of KP's game to help mitigate risk.

"And by the way, even though Barea is not yet signed, he will be soon and his minutes will be watched closely early in the season."

Wat.

I doubt Barea will play until March/April, but sure.

Barea will still play but I hope his minutes are limited. He was thinking about playing for PR so I wouldn't be be surprised is he is back before 2020.

I think it's a coin toss or decided by health between Mavs and Spurs for the better record.

Experts expect the best team in the WC to only have 54 wins?! Something is wrong with their picks.

I gotta ask. How happy would everyone be if the Lakers did not make the playoffs this year? I'd be laughing hysterically.

The West is tough, but no one team is stacked enough to dominate the conference. Obviously things will shake out during the regular season, but as they stand I wouldn’t be surprised to see a couple of upsets in the playoffs.

When you look at their roster, you can see just as many paths to the Lakers missing the playoffs as the Mavs... Which shouldn’t be the case, considering that they’re in win-now mode and we aren’t. I’d be right there laughing with you, especially if we took their place.

Don’t forget that western teams play 2/3 of their games against the west

It’s a meat grinder
