Things couldn’t be going much better for Luka Doncic the Dallas Mavericks as the NBA playoffs inch closer. The Mavs have won eight of their last 10 games, and Doncic is averaging 34 points, 10.2 rebounds and 7.7 assists during that span while shooting 46.3 percent from the field and 40.9 percent from 3-point range.

Not only is Doncic continuing to climb the NBA's MVP ladder, but the Mavs are getting everything they could've hoped for and more out of backup guard Spencer Dinwiddie so far. It's still early, but the fact that Dinwiddie has fit like a glove in Dallas almost instantly bodes well for what could come down the road.
In the six games Dinwiddie has been a Maverick, he's shared the floor with Doncic for 107 minutes. Even though it's a small sample size, the Mavs have a 119.2 offensive rating, a 105.3 defensive rating, and a 13.9 net rating during those minutes. Dinwiddie has already proven how he can be valuable in crucial fourth-quarter situations as well.
