The Dallas Mavericks head into the All-Star break with 33 wins. They have the same record as the Oklahoma City Thunder. The two teams sit sixth and seventh in the Western Conference. The Mavs are eight and a half games ahead of ninth.
It has been an incredible turnaround for the team. They have not topped 33 wins or made the playoffs since 2016. Yet, here they are. The addition of Kristaps Porzingis and the breakthrough from Luka Doncic has them primed for the postseason. A healthy Mavericks squad is one others do not want to face.
