The Dallas Mavericks will be among the 22 teams that will take part in the resumption of the NBA season at Disney World. With Luka Doncic and Kristaps Porzingis setting the tone and Rick Carlisle at head coach, they are one of the more intriguing teams to monitor.

The future is bright for the Mavericks but that doesn’t mean they can’t make some noise in the playoffs when the NBA season resumes. It won’t be easy considering they’re currently slotted to play the Los Angeles Clippers in the first round.
