Porzingis returns and Dallas continues its climb

The Mavericks continue in their good line. Last night, receiving the Orlando Magic, they won with solvency 108-92 and also recovered one of their most important pieces, Kristaps Porzingis, who had been away from the courts for seven games.

The Latvian player responded to what was required of him by recording 19 points and 7 rebounds in just 28 minutes. It was a good performance that of course was combined with the good work of Luka Doncic, who added 23 points and 9 rebounds to the cause. Dallas won for the eighth time in the last 10 games and remains fifth in the Western Conference at 24-19.

“Scoring the first shot made me feel comfortable from the beginning. Then it was about finding opportunities within our offensive system. That’s what I wanted to do. I didn’t want to force anything too much in the first game I played on my return, “says the Mavs inside player.

The truth is that the party had little history. Orlando is currently the worst team in the NBA and they showed it just like that. At halftime they were down by 12 points and well into the fourth quarter their deficit increased to over 20. Jalen Brunson also contributed to this, contributing 19 points and 5 rebounds. His inclusion as a starter for several games has really sat well with Jason Kidd’s men.
