How Can the Mavericks Beat the Knicks?

Your probably wouldn’t classify the Dallas Mavericks as a gritty team, but they’ll have to find something of the sort in them to take down the Knicks.

The New York Knicks are ranked eighth overall in offensive rebounds per game, while the Dallas Mavericks are ranked in the bottom third in terms of rebounding as a whole.

Scoring and moving the ball is all well and good, but if the Mavericks allow extra possessions the odds could swing quickly. Keep an eye out on the big men.

Mavericks Key Player: (G) Luka Doncic


There is nothing for a star player like an evening entertaining fans in Madison Square Garden, especially if you’re on the opposing side. Luka Doncic, is expected to have a big night against the inconsistent Knicks.

Doncic is coming off of a victory where he posted 22 points, 14 rebounds, and 14 assists in 35 minutes of play. While he wasn’t incredibly efficient shooting the ball, the Mavericks All-Star made up for it by creating for others.

The Dallas Mavericks go at the pace that Luka Doncic sets for them. If he can get out of the gates quickly, their depth should make up the difference to help them seal a win for the Mavericks.

How Can the Knicks Beat the Mavericks?

The New York Knicks are coming off of a solid victory in their last game. They were able to beat a solid Spurs team due to their defensive focus.

Usually an inconsistent three-point defending team, the Knicks were able to hold the Spurs to just 8 of 29 shooting in their last game.

The Mavericks are coming off of a 50% shooting night where they hit 16 three-pointers. It’s time for the Knicks to show that they can lock down their opponents on a consistent basis.

Knicks Key Player: (G) RJ Barrett


As the New York Knicks have found their stride, it has been RJ Barrett who has stepped up. The sophomore is coming off of a brilliant game where his scoring ability could not be denied.

The Canadian international posted 31 points, 4 assists, and 3 rebounds. It was his shooting that impressed though, as he was 12 of 20 from the field and 3 of 4 from three-point range.

Barrett has shown his ability to be the first option for the New York Knicks. As they look to climb the Eastern Conference table, his growth will be on full display.
