The Dallas Mavericks bowed out in the first round of the playoffs after taking a 2-0 lead against the Los Angeles Clippers. While it was a disappointing end to the season, it was clear. The Mavs need to find superstar Luka Doncic some more help.
Kristaps Porzingis was practically non-existent in the series, averaging a measly 13.1 points while shooting 29% from downtown. It was simply not good enough for a player who’s expected to be the missing piece to their star duo. While reports surfaced on Monday that Porzingis has been unhappy with how he’s been treated with the Mavs, GM Donnie Nelson offered some clarity on the situation, per Callie Caplan.
