Dallas is undoubtedly playing better since our last set of rankings. They just had a four-game winning streak snapped Sunday by the Blazers. But the Mavericks’ defensive issues—allowing way too points, 28th in rebounding—probably aren’t going to be fixed anytime soon so they better keep hitting those threes at a higher clip like we’ve seen the past two weeks.
