In their second preseason game in China, Joel Embiid dominated the Mavs in and around the paint in just 24 minutes of action making the team already miss DeAndre Jordan.
Embiid’s dominating performance was a vivid example of why DJ, absent because of a death in the family, is so important to what the Mavs will be trying to do this season defensively. He is the big presence in the middle that the Mavs have missed in recent years and hopefully his production will translate to a satisfying amount of blocks and rebounds for owners who draft him in the middle rounds.
