Dallas Mavericks NBA Championship Odds 2022-2023

The current Dallas Mavericks NBA championship odds are . Dallas shocked many people last season when it upset the No. 1 seeded Phoenix Suns in the Western Conference Semi-Finals. Despite having significantly less star power, the Mavs found a way to come together and get the surprising series win. This season, they will be without Jalen Brunson after he signed with the New York Knicks in free agency but grabbed a couple of talented players to make up for it. The additions of Christian Wood, JaVale McGee, and Jaden Hardy should hopefully mitigate the damage from the loss of Brunson, but only time will tell!

By no means should you count the Dallas Mavericks out of championship contention this year after an impressive deep run in the 2022 postseason; however, it is vital to understand the circumstances that led them to the Western Conference Finals. The Utah Jazz and Phoenix Suns were ideal matchups for many reasons, but primarily because Utah was in organizational disarray, and Phoenix was not a strong rebounding team. For instance, had the Mavericks played an elite rebounding team like the Memphis Grizzlies in the second round, they would have had virtually no shot of winning.

Additionally, the loss of Jalen Brunson stings in the worst way. If Brunson stayed with Dallas, it would have been one of the favorites in the Western Conference. The Mavs would have been able to run a small-ball lineup of Doncic, Brunson, Hardaway, Bullock, and Wood, with Doncic and Bullock switching off on defending certain opposing fours. Now, Dallas has to likely settle for what it already has, and it may not entirely be enough to take over the Western Conference.

Reasons Why Dallas Mavericks Can & Can’t Win NBA 2022-23 Championship

Strengths

  • Chemistry: After Dallas moved on from Kristaps Porzingis, the Mavs’ outlook immediately improved. Dallas became consistently top three in the NBA in almost every essential defensive category after the trade deadline and was one of the more feared teams once the playoffs rolled around. Luka Doncic has proven time and time again that he is one of the best players in the NBA, and thus, we cannot count him or his team out. Anything could happen with Tim Hardaway Jr returning from an injury and Christian Wood and JaVale McGee adding to the Mavs’ frontcourt.
  • Three-Point Shooting: If we have learned anything from this Mavs team, it is that they are not afraid to let the deep ball fly. Last season, Dallas finished sixth in three-pointers attempted despite being middle-of-the-road in 3P%. Luckily, Dallas brings back Tim Hardaway Jr. (a near 40% shooter from deep in 2019 and 2020) from injury and will also start newly acquired forward Christian Wood (39% from behind the arc last season.) This team should have no problem ranking in the top ten in 3P% for the 2022-23 season.

    Weaknesses

    • Rebounding: While Mavs fans should feel optimistic about the additions of JaVale McGee and Christian Wood, who are substantial improvements to Dwight Powell and Maxi Kleber, they will not completely erase the rebounding troubles Dallas had last season. The Mavs finished 27th in offensive rebounding percentage and were significantly outrebounded in almost every game (Game Four being the exception) against Golden State. If they don’t improve on the glass, it’s hard to imagine they will get past teams like Golden State or Memphis next season.
    • Backcourt Depth: Last season, frontcourt depth was one of my biggest concerns about the Dallas Mavericks; this season, it is the exact opposite. While Doncic and Hardaway certainly pack a potent one-two punch on the offensive end, losing a big-time player like Jalen Brunson to the New York Knicks will sting. If Brunson had stayed, Dallas would have had one of the best backcourt benches in the league. Instead, the Mavs have Spencer Dinwiddie and some combination of Jaden Hardy and Frank Ntilikina.
