Former player and NBA champion in 2011 with Dallas, Jason Terry, believes the current Mavs’ duo of Luka Doncic and Kristaps Porzingis are destined for great things. According to Terry, the two are building the chemistry this season which will help in the future.
Both players are yet to reach their full potential. Doncic is 21, while Porzingis is 24. Getting used to playing together is an important factor thinking about potentially contesting for a championship. Terry went as far as to call the duo ‘as one of the all-time dynamic duos in the history of the game’, provided they continue winning and have success in playoffs.
“They’re still headed down as one of the all-time dynamic duos in the history of the game, if they continue to win and then have success in the playoffs, and hopefully take us to another NBA finals and win a championship. Because they’re so young. When you have two young stars as KP and Luka, and the talent that they possess, they have yet to really reach their full potential and I think the chemistry that they’ve gained this season by playing together is going to continue to grow.Jason Terry
“KP is learning that ‘hey maybe it might not be at the four position, maybe at the five position where I can be most dangerous and effective.’ Luka is also understanding ‘hey I might not have to take over an entire ball game, I can kind of conserve my energy and be the closer very similar to what Dirk [Nowitzki] was and kind of let KP get off early in games.”
This season, Doncic is averaging 28.7 points, 9.3 rebounds and 8.7 assists per game. Meanwhile, Porzingis is posting 19.2 points and grabbing 9.5 rebounds per contest.
