Mavs Irving not enough

Mavs’ Irving not enough

Saint Garcia, Staff Writer | Feb 21, 2023
Despite the addition of new superstar player Kyrie Irving, the Dallas Mavericks fell short to a very aggressive Minnesota Timberwolves team 124-121 on Feb. 13. Since making the blockbuster trade to get the All-Star guard from Brooklyn, the home crowd had been eager to see the superstar make his home debut. The biggest question after acquiring Irving was how the defense was going to suffer, since the Mavs traded away their best defender in forward Dorian Finney-Smith and guard Spencer Dinwiddie. But without a doubt, the NBA will be seeing the best backcourt and offensive wizardry with the combination of Luka Doncic and Irving, as their combined average is 60.5 points per game.
