Mavericks have gotten finally a propper Center in Andrew Bogut. This was their most lacking position last season and this might be the bit to take them further. Also from golden state comes Harrison Barnes Paid for at a the big price of Chandler Parsons who had extremely strong numbers playing for Mavs last season. So the bigger question is Barnes, he has not exactly been performing in the preseason games, only scoring an average of 6.8 points pr game, missing alot of shots, and going 0-10 from 3 point range over the course of his 5 preseason games, not good at all. Aside from that we basicly have the mavericks team as we know them from last season, only that they are all abit further out on the wrong side of age 30. Seth Curry though might be an interesting new addition to keep an eye on. He scored 20 points in his first match for Mavs and have been making consistent points averaging 8 points in the last 4 matches.
Indiana adds to their roster Thaddeus Young, Jeff Teague and Al Jefferson, all strong additions who have been dropping consistent points in preseason. Paul George is very positive expressing: "I don't want to jump the gun and say this is the best team I've been on, but it's shaping up to be," George said. "I've got a new group with unbelievable talent.". That is a statement that measures the spirit and chemistry of these new guys. Pacers choaching staff have expressed: "We want to play with a lot more ball movement. Our guys have to commit to running."
I believe we will see a physically stronger Pacers team today and for the future. And starting at home could not get better. I think today we will see better performance by Pacers, their new additions seem more promising than Mavs. And there is real potential in this new roster, alot more so than mavs this far. So -6.5 Pacers it is.
