Kristaps Porzingis reached his best level with the New York Knicks and he has not showed it off since he signed for the Dallas Mavericks. However, he is performing very well in these first few months into the new season. Will this be Porzingis’ year?

Stats are on his side:

The power forward for the Dallas Mavericks is averaging 19.5 points, 8 rebounds and 2.1 assists per game. These are positive stats compared to previous season at the franchise from Texas. The responsable for this comeback in the career of Kristaps Porzingis is Jason Kid, who has provided him with more minutes. The ex-player for the Mavs became the head coach for this season and changes on the playing system are already being noticed.

Kristaps Porzingis has modified his playing style as well, as he is now playing closer to the paint. As a result, his numbers on rebounds have increased. He averages 2.2 offensive rebounds per game, the best stat of his career.

What should we expect from the Dallas Mavericks?

The Dallas Mavericks are 6th in the Western Conference with 12 wins and 12 defeats. This season they have suffered the absence of Luka Doncic due to injuries on his wrist and ankle. Furthermore, the player is being questioned on gaining weight in his last years in the NBA. Let’s trust that the Slovenian returns to his best shape because he started the season the right way and is the leader of this team.

But not everything are problems. It is true that now they are not going through their best moment regarding to scores, but the return of Kristaps Porzingis is a reason for the Dallas fans to get excited about. The team will battle to earn a spot for the Playoffs or worst case scenario they will make it to the controversial Play-in.

Do you think that we will see the Porzingis from New York? Will he overcome that version?
