The Mavericks dropped the Suns on Wednesday night, 104–94, behind 30 points from Luka Doncic. The rookie added six rebounds and five assists to a night full of points in the paint, at the line and behind the arc.
Doncic’s season numbers reflect what the Suns experienced in trying to defend him on Wednesday night: he is deadly from 3-point range and at the rim but has some deficiencies in-between.
His Effective Field Goal Percentage at the rim and beyond the arc is .585 and .556, respectively. It drops well under .500 at all levels in-between, including a paltry .342 from 10-16 feet.
He’s just a rookie so defenses haven’t been privy to much data or scouting on the kid but defenses are going to run him off the 3-point line and force him to pull-up before getting to the rim. That won’t happen soon enough for him to not win Rookie of the Year this season. He’s going to run away with that unless he gets hurt soon. The betting markets reflect as much.
The Timberwolves don’t have a rim protector so I doubt Doncic does much pulling up in this one.
The Timberwolves beat the Thunder in Oklahoma City on Tuesday night in Ryan Saunders’ debut as the team’s new Head Coach.
He may just be an interim but Saunders, who is the 32-year-old son of the late Flip Saunders, made a nice impression to begin his career. Andrew Wiggins scored 40 and looked free to attack as he wanted from the wing. Dario Saric saw an uptick in minutes off the bench.
The win marked three in a row for Minnesota, which is just a game shy of .500 at this point. The momentum and excitement of a new Head Coach is going to carry over for some time and the T-Wolves get back-to-back games at home, starting with this one against one of the worst road teams in the NBA.

Free Dallas Mavericks vs. Minnesota Timberwolves NBA Prediction: Minnesota wins a high-scoring game.
I’ll take Minnesota because Dallas is so bad on the road. Doncic should be effective but he was also listed as questionable with a back problem on Wednesday. Obviously, he played well but the rook is logging heavy usage carrying his team at the age of 19.
