Can Luka Doncic get back into the MVP conversation? His 36-point performance in a win over the Boston Celtics last game suggests he can. Doncic sits at 14/1 to win NBA MVP after starting the season as the favorite. The Mavs have won two in a row and have plenty of time to climb back into the thick of the Western Conference playoff race. At 25-21, Dallas is in the 7-seed, 3.5 games back of the Portland Trail Blazers.
The Knicks are back to .500 basketball after dropping two in a row. They suffered a tough 102-101 loss to the Minnesota Timberwolves and depth seems to be an issue at the moment. Mitchell Robinson and Derrick Rose remain sidelined, though D-Rose has a chance to return vs. the Mavs.
