There’s a good chance the Warriors will start the 2018-19 season with one unblured game.
If you guessed the Dallas Mavericks, that’s a pretty good bet.
The Mavericks were one of only two teams to score more than 70 points per game during the 2017-18 season, which is good for sixth in the NBA.
They also won the 2017 Western Conference Finals with Stephen Curry at the helm.
But Curry was sidelined for the entire year with a sprained left knee.
With Curry on the court, the Warriors have averaged 101.3 points per 100 possessions, second in the league.
Last season, the Mavs led the NBA with a 103.2-point pace.
They were also one of just two teams (the other being the New Orleans Pelicans) to average at least 95 points per contest, with the other being Atlanta.
However, this is not the first time the Warriors are trying to make up ground with their opponent.
Last season against the Minnesota Timberwolves, they were able to blow the game open by scoring 21 points in the first 10 minutes.
In fact, this could be the best Warriors performance of the season.
The Mavos shot 49.4 percent from the field in the third quarter of their win, which ranked eighth in the East.
That came against the team that had a losing record in 2016-17.
Curry’s return should be a big boost for the Warriors.
He averaged 19.6 points per-game in the regular season, while adding 6.5 rebounds per game.
