How can the Knicks beat the Mavericks?

The New York Knicks face the Dallas Mavericks, one of the best teams in the NBA. The Knicks are coming off a win where they were able to slow down their offense, and will have to defend against the Mavericks.

In their last 5 games, all wins, the Dallas Mavericks have shot an 48.9% from the field and 37.8% from three-point range – while making 14.2 three-pointers per game. The Knicks must limit Dallas’ scoring in order to win. In the bottom third of the league in three-point field goals allowed (13.0 per game), New York will need to summon some rarely-found defensive form.

While Julius Randle’s production has been in doubt throughout the season, he was locked-in during his last game against the Kings. Randle’s last game against the Sacramento Kings was a huge success. This is something he will be able to build on against the Mavericks.

In his last game, a win against the Sacramento Kings, Randle posted 46 points and 10 rebounds on 18 of 31 shooting from the field. He was also encouraging from three-point range, converting on 8 of his 16 attempts from deep.

Randle’s aggressive offence makes it possible for them to open up all of the court. New York has a chance if they are able to rely on Randle for a score against the Mavericks. They don’t have the best paint protection team so that is a plus.

How can the Mavericks defeat the Knicks.

When their offense is focused, the New York Knicks are as formidable as any other team in the NBA. The Mavericks need to be cautious of New York’s large guns, as they run their offense through only a handful of key players.

In New York’s final game, which was a victory over the Kings (which they won), the three players Barrett, Randle and Quickley played a huge role. The three players combined for 102 of the team’s 131 points, all shooting well over 50% from the field.

Dallas has improved its defense this season but doesn’t have any single defenders that can stop the Knicks stars’ one-on-one play. The key to stopping the Knicks is to rotate with several defenders and not give up the opportunity on the pass out.

Mavericks Key Player: (G) Luka Doncic

Through the Dallas Mavericks’ five game winning streak, Doncic has been masterful. Although he only appeared in four of his five games, Doncic’s impact was significant.

In his last four games, Doncic posted an average of 33.8 points, 11.3 rebounds, and 5.8 assists on 50.5% shooting from the field. Although his assists numbers may not be as impressive as they used to, Doncic is thriving in court with an additional ball handler.

Doncic was able to continue his criminal activities with more support. While 50% shooting from the field isn’t entirely sustainable, maintaining his shooting efficiency will be key to Dallas’ success.
