Cleveland Cavaliers

NBA: Cleveland Cavaliers

Consistency have been Cavaliers’ number one concern throughout the season, either good or bad consistency. They were impressive during their first few games, winning eight consecutive games, but lost five after. For their next nine games, they won seven of those nine games, but have lost three of their five games since then. During their game against the Spurs, they trailed the Spurs by 19 points. However, on the final quarter, the Spurs rallied from a 10-point deficit, giving them the victory. They had their chances on the last second of the game, but the defense of the Spurs are just too much for them. They are the 21st offensively with 110.9 points per game. As for their defense, they are the seventh in the league, as they give up 110.1 points per game.

Donovan Mitchell is the one leading the Cavaliers when it comes to scoring. He is averaging 29 points per game. But guys like Darius Garland, and Jarrett Allen have been phenomenal for the Cavaliers as well.

Dallas Mavericks

NBA: Dallas Mavericks

The Mavericks is a team who is capable of winning more games as they can, but the problem is that they rely too much on Doncic. In fact, this season, it has been a disappointing season for them. They failed to find a consistently high level games, which could bring them to victory. Before November ends, they lost their last four games that month, which talks about their performance. Fortunately, they were able to win three straight games this month. Unfortunately, that momentum was stopped when they lost against the Bucks and the Bulls. They were able to bounce back against the Thunder on their last game, and are looking for the same result in this match. In the offense, they are the 19th in the league with 111.9 points per game. Defensively, they only allow 105.1 points per game.

Luka Doncic leads the Mavericks with 33.1 points per game, along with 8.8 assists, and 8.6 rebounds. Spencer Dinwiddie, and Christian Wood are also providing numbers for the Mavericks with 16.8 and 16.4 points per game.
