Rick Carlisle said that his current plan is for the Mavs to play faster this season.
It’s exciting news for fantasy owners, as a quicker pace typically leads to more opportunities for production. This could be particularly true for a guard-heavy Dallas roster, and it might help ease some concerns about the playing time squeeze that’s going to happen in the backcourt and on the wings. It also shouldn’t be too hard to accomplish, as they ranked 29th in the league with a pace of 94.2 last season and will roll with a younger, faster group this year.
