The Mavericks, currently the seventh seed in the Western Conference, hold a 20-15 record in their first 35 games. Despite a 4-6 performance in their last ten games, they recently dominated the Trail Blazers at home, securing a convincing 126-97 victory.

During the clash, Irving demonstrated his skill set, contributing 29 points, nine rebounds, five assists, and two steals in just 29 minutes of play. His efficiency on the court was evident, shooting 10/19 from the field and 4/8 from three-point range.

Looking ahead, the Mavericks are set to face Anthony Edwards and the Minnesota Timberwolves on Sunday evening in Texas. As Irving continues to make history, his 13th season in the league is shaping up to be another remarkable chapter for the eight-time NBA All-Star, who has left an indelible mark with previous stints at the Brooklyn Nets, Cleveland Cavaliers, and Boston Celtics. 

Irving's illustrious career boasts averages of 23.4 points, 4.0 rebounds, 5.7 assists, and 1.3 steals per contest, highlighting his enduring impact on the game. (Source: Sports Illustrated)
