The struggling Dallas Mavericks welcome in the Indiana Pacers on Friday night as they continue to try and find some offensive production.
After one of their worst performances of the season that saw them give up 142 points to Warriors, the Pacers bounced back in a big way.
The Pacers responded with 109-94 win over the Suns and will look to put together a winning 5 game road trip as they sit at 2-2 entering play here on Friday.
Indiana’s defense has been the biggest key on this road swing.
In the pair of losses, they’ve given up an average of 136.5 points per game. In both wins, they’ve conceded just 98 points on average.
Paul George came up huge in the win over Phoenix, going for 25 points and 13 rebounds in what was easily his best game since returning from an ankle injury.
George is the most crucial part of this Pacers team, as he needs to be the offensive spark that the rest of the team looks to build off of.
Scoring has been the biggest issue for the Mavericks this year and they’ve shown no signs of improving.
Dallas is averaging just 92.1 points per game and come in off a horrific loss, possibly their worst of the season. The Mavericks allowed the Kings to score 120 in a 31 point loss.
The Mavericks are getting outscored by an average of 100.4-92.1 per game.
While it isn’t an excuse for the poor play, Dallas was without Andrew Bogut, Dirk Nowitzki, and JJ Berea in the loss to the Kings. They held a team meeting after to search for answers as this team is playing well below their expectations.
SG Wesley Matthews has been one of the few Mavs to step up, as he’s gone 15 for 26 from behind the arc over the past 3 games.
