The Mavericks are the mark of reliability, especially with Rick Carlisle at the helm as coach. Even with Dirk Nowitzki’s increasing age, the big German has been scoring steadily, helping push the Mavs to a post season spot. Dallas has missed the playoffs just once since 2000-2001, and barring a collapse this season, look poised to return. They could be even higher in the standings if they were successful in luring DeAndre Jordan from the LA Clippers, but after a bizarre change of mind, the big-man returned to play in Hollywood.
Nowitzki’s scoring average of more than 17 PPG is tops on the team, proof that his fall-away one-footers are still money in the Association. Strong supporting scoring comes from Chandler Parsons, Wesley Matthews and Deron William, each scoring more than 10 points a game.
Sometimes lost in the mix are veterans JJ Barea, Raymond Felton, Devin Harris, Charlie Villanueva and JaVale McGee, who can provide strong minutes off the bench or start when needed. Zaza Pachulia, the owner of possibly one of the best names in the league, is averaging nearly a double-double.
