Pacing all scorers is Dallas Mavericks (10-10) superstar Luka Doncic, who’s averaging a career-high 33.5 points across 37.4 minutes per contest (19 games). Doncic has been relied upon even more in the scoring department following Jalen Brunson’s decision to join the New York Knicks via free agency in the offseason. Appearing to be in the best shape of his career, Doncic should continue to put the Mavs on his back as they look to climb up the Western Conference standings (currently ninth).
