The Dallas Mavericks of the NBA카지노사이트, where Luca Doncic is holding out, failed to advance to the playoffs (PO) this season despite the’strong water’ that brought Kyrie Irving.

Dallas lost 112-115 to the Chicago Bulls in the 2022-2023 NBA regular league home game held at the American Airlines Center in Dallas, Texas on the 8th (Korean time).

Dallas, ranked 11th in the Western Conference with a record of 38 wins and 43 losses, has completely lost its chance of advancing to the PO.

Even if Dallas wins in the last game of the regular league and the 10th place Oklahoma City Thunder (39-42) loses, the ranking does not change due to being pushed out of the opponent’s record.

On the other hand, Oklahoma City secured at least 10th place and entered the play-in tournament.

In the NBA, the 6th place in each conference goes directly to the PO, and the 7th to 10th place teams play a play-in tournament to determine the 2 teams that receive tickets to the PO.

Dallas, which had been in the upper ranks of the West until the beginning and middle of the season, threw a game-winning move to trade Irving from the Brooklyn Nets in early February.

However, since then, the rankings have gradually declined as Donchichi and Irving, who are the ‘Teojujugam’, did not create as much synergy as expected.

After Irving joined, Dallas’ record was 7-17.

As the prospects for the season darkened, such as only 2 wins and 8 losses in the last 10 games, Dallas did not send Irving and virtually declared ‘PO abandonment’ that day.

Doncic also played only 13 minutes. Key forwards such as Maxi Clever and Christian Wood were also absent.

This is because if you go to the play-in tournament with a score higher than 10th, the right to pick in the first round of the next season’s rookie draft will pass to the New York Knicks.

As a result, for the first time since the 1980-1981 season, all three teams (Dallas, San Antonio Spurs, Houston Rockets) related to Texas were eliminated from the PO, a rare occurrence.

Currently, San Antonio is 14th in the West (21-59), and Houston (21-60) is in last place at 15th.

In particular, since the 2000s, each of the three teams has occupied the top ranks in the West thanks to having the best stars of the time: Dirk Nowitzki, Tim Duncan (retired), and James Harden (now Philadelphia).

Oklahoma City, which is entering the play-in tournament due to Dallas’ elimination, can aim for the PO for the first time in three years.

Oklahoma City, which has advanced to PO for five consecutive seasons from the 2015-2016 season, has begun rebuilding the team in the 2020-2021 season, and has seen some fruition in two seasons.
