DeAndre Jordan is a major reason the 2-1 Mavs are above .500 for the first time since the end of the 2015-16 season. He's averaging 17 points, 12.7 rebounds and 2.3 blocks, shooting 70 percent from the floor and 90 percent from the line. "He's just been sensational," coach Rick Carlisle said. "He's giving us a major presence on the inside."
