NBA Live 19: Dallas Mavericks Player Ratings and Roster

Armed with a backcourt of two young stars and with DeAndre Jordan at center, the Mavs will be an enjoyable prospect to play with in NBA Live 19.

Heading into 2018/19, Mavericks fans have reason to be optimistic. With Luka Doncic and Dennis Smith Jr likely to share plenty of minutes together, they could be a lot of fun to play with in NBA Live 19. Check out the full details of their team below.


Dennis Smith Jr, PG, 81

Age: 20

Position: PG

Height: 6’3″

Playstyle: Slasher

Best stats: 90 Driving Layup, 90 Vertical, 89 Speed

Dennis Smith Jr made it clear in his rookie year why he was a top ten pick in the 2017 draft. The explosive guard managed 15.2 points, 5.2 assists and 1.0 steals during the course of the season, and though he was inefficient – fairly typical for a rookie of his type – his talent was plain to see. 

Wesley Matthews, SG, 80

Age: 31

Position: SG

Height: 6’5’’

Playstyle: Wing Shooter

Best stats: 92 Stamina, 83 3-point Shot, 82 On Ball Defense

The stereotypical 3-and-d player, Matthews has been a pillar of consistency throughout his nine seasons in the NBA. Last season, he averaged 12.7 points, 3.1 rebounds, 2.7 assists and 1.2 steals while shooting in the high 30’s from long range, numbers which have become synonymous with his career. Though he is listed as a shooting guard in NBA Live 19, expect him to play plenty of minutes at small forward to accommodate Luka Doncic in the backcourt with Smith Jr.


Harrison Barnes, SF, 83

Age:  26

Position: SF

Height: 6’8’’

Playstyle: Wing Scorer

Best stats: 94 Stamina, 89 On Ball Defense, 88 Speed

Since moving to Dallas in 2016, Barnes’ usage rate has seen enormous growth, though it has been accompanied by a slight drop in efficiency. Last season his numbers closely mirrored his first year in Dallas, as he averaged 18.9 points on 44.5% shooting, 6.1 rebounds and 2.0 assists. It wouldn’t be surprising to see his stats decline in 2018/19 as the Mavs begin to look more towards their young backcourt at the offensive end of the floor.

Dirk Nowitzki, PF, 81

Age: 40

Position: PF

Height: 7’0’’

Playstyle: Stretch Big

Best stats: 92 Mid-Range Shot, 90 Contested Shot, 89 Free Throw

It’s a testament to Dirk Nowitzki that aged 40, he is still listed in the Mavs’ starting lineup in NBA Live 19, even if the reality is he will probably come off the bench for much of the season. Father Time was always going to take a little longer to catch up to him considering the relative lack of athleticism he had to lose and his incredible shooting ability, but few would have expected him to still be contributing in his 40’s.

DeAndre Jordan, C, 87

Age: 30

Position: C 

Height: 6’11’’

Playstyle: Rim Protector

Best stats: 98 Rebounding, 98 Strength, 97 Post Defense

Jordan was the last member of Lob City to depart from the Clippers, and will start his first season outside of Los Angeles as the starting center for the Mavs. A terrific acquisition for the Mavs, Jordan will provide a much needed defensive presence on the inside, and will be licking his lips at the prospect of being fed at the basket by Doncic and Smith Jr.
