Breaking down the Dallas Mavericks

Currently in the 8th playoff spot, the Dallas Mavericks are a team no one will want to play when the playoffs start. Dirk Nowitzki is still making his shots, Jose Calderon is threatening the elite shooting class yet again, and Monta Ellis has been rejuvenated in Coach Rick Carlisle's offense.

Let's dive deep into the advanced stats to go through the team from top to bottom. With unique insight into how well the offense is performing, as well as HOW the offense is performing, you won't find a more detailed analysis of the Dallas Mavericks. The defense is also spotlighted for why it might not be as bad as people think, with only one specific area needed to put them in contention in the Western Conference.
