The Dallas Mavericks haven’t won any Summer League games so far. Two of their wins were by a one-point margin, but the third was a whopping 27-point blowout. The team will certainly be expecting a win to end their campaign. However, things aren’t going to be easy for them against the Bucks.

Jerrick Harding has played very well for the Mavs in the last two games. After scoring 18 points against the Utah Jazz, he had 20 against the Phoenix Suns. Even if the team isn’t doing well, he could very well be a great find for the Mavs.

The team is indefinitely on the way to the tournament. However, they will be looking to sign with a win. They’re up against a Milwaukee Bucks team, but they’re nothing too loose, so it’ll be interesting to see how they perform.

Key Player – Jaden Hardy

Jaden Hardy has had some great outings in the Summer League so far. Despite the team’s losses, the 20-year-old averages 17.67 PPG. Hardy was a second-round pick in the 2022 draft. However, he comes with experience playing in the NBA G League.

Hardy averaged 19.48 PPG in 25 games during his time there. His goal will be to impress management and find a way to secure a spot with the Mavs. He could definitely be of great use to the Mavs coming off the bench. Whether or not he finds a place is still in question. However, there is no doubt that he is a great talent.

The Milwaukee Bucks have one win and one loss in their Summer League campaign. However, their path forward will be determined by the outcome of the game against the Mavs. The Bucks have a great roster with talented players.

Their best player was Sandro Mamukelashvili. The 23-year-old’s stature helps him attack the boards with ease. Another player who has been great for them is draft rookie MarJon Beauchamp.

The 24th pick averages 15.3 PPG in three outings. He will be looking to have another big game against the Mavs as a win will help the Bucks challenge for a spot in the next round.

The team have conceded more than 100 points only once so far in the tournament. They will definitely like their chances against the Mavs. However, their opponent could very well create a surprise and reverse their chances of going ahead in the tournament.

Key player – Sandro Maumkelashvili

Sandro Mamukelashvili has been a force at both ends of the floor for the Bucks. It has averaged 21 PPG and 9.7 RPG in three outings so far. Being a late second-round pick, the big man certainly has a lot to prove. He had playing time during the regular season last time out, but he’s definitely hoping to increase that time this time around.

Breaking into the Bucks team is definitely not that easy as they have a lot of talent. However, given the way he played in the Summer League, coach Mike Budenholzer will certainly be impressed. Before the game against the Mavs, he hopes to have another big game.

The Dallas team doesn’t have many greats who could prove to be a challenge for Mamukelashvili. He will certainly be looking to take advantage and lead the Milwaukee Bucks over the line.
