Dallas has been somewhat of a surprise as they could have easily been pretty bad this season. Instead they are in 6th place in the West.
Orlando has fallen out of the playoffs in the East and just made a deal.
I am not sure what to make of it for this season though.
The Mavs entered the break by winning only one of their last five games so hopefully they have used the time to rest and regroup. This is an older team that probably needed it.
At its best this can be a good offensive group. Dirk still has his moments and Chandler Parsons is a versatile weapon.
Even Deron Williams finds the fountain of youth every once in a while.
Zaza Pachulia may be undersized in the middle but he is having his best NBA season to date averaging 10/10.
Orlando is not a powerful team so he should be able to hold his own. This game will very much be a test of youth vs. experience.
At every spot on the floor the Mavs will have a significant experience advantage. They are rested so they should have as much life as they have had all season.
The Magic were one of the first teams to pull the trigger on a trade. Going out was Tobias Harris and coming in are Brandon Jennings and Ersan Ilyasova. I think it improves the team thought I do like Harris’ game.
The addition of Jennings should mean a reduction in time for Elfrid Payton. I have never likes his game so I see that as an upgrade overall.
Jennings is a score first guy but at least he is good at it.
Ilyasova is a totally different kind of forward than Harris so I wonder if this move also opens up playing time for Aaron Gordon.
There is no doubting Gordon’s athleticism but I am still not a fan.
He can’t really shoot and his overall production is not enough to compensate. Shouldn’t he at least block one shot per game with those hops.
Perhaps making this deal spurs the Magic forward. I think it was a positive move and they are within striking distance if they can make just a small run like win five of seven.
Here is the chance to get off to a good start.
