The Dallas Mavericks beat the Atlanta Hawks 108-94. This is the fourth victory of the Mavericks since the NBA preseason started. Yogi Ferrell and Dwight Powell led the Mavericks to the win, while Dirk Nowitzki took the night off.

The Hawks’ Kent Bazemore played an amazing all-around game, but it was not enough for his team to get the victory. The Mavericks ended up outscoring the Hawks in each of the four quarters, putting yet another game in the win column.

Kent Bazemore scored game-high of 20 points

Kent Bazemore’s preseason finale marked by far his best outing so far, as he packed the stat line by contributing 20 points, six rebounds, five assists, and one steal across 25 minutes.

The 28-year-old veteran hit on 8-of-12 from the field, 3-of-5 from beyond the arc, and 1-of-3 from the free throw line.

Bazemore missed seven games last season while dealing with a bone bruise. In the 73 games that he played over the last season, he averaged 11 points, .7 blocks, 1.3 steals, 2.4 assists, and 3.2 rebounds across 20.7 minutes per game. Based on his performance, it looks like Bazemore’s insistence on a heavy workload last season hasn't gone away over the summer.

Dwight Powell scored 11 points

Although most of the Mavericks' projected starting unit did not play in the game, the team was still able to win against the Hawks. Dwight Powell played a decent game, contributing, 11 points (4-of-7 FG, 3-of-6 3Pt), four rebounds, and four assists across 20 minutes.

Last season, he averaged 6.7 points and 4.0 rebounds in 17.3 minutes per contest and should see a similar workload during the upcoming 2017-18 campaign. Powell played for 20 minutes and expected to be playing with the similar workload on the upcoming season.
