There are some new faces on this year’s roster, but superstar Luka Doncic said the new players are in sync with Kidd and his system.

"I think we’re doing a better job this year, you know, because we’ve been together for one year. We know what he wants from us," Doncic said.

"We have a great group of young men that No. 1 get along, that all have the same goal in mind and that’ to win," Coach Kidd said. "I think we’re excited about this upcoming season."

The Mavs tickets are among the hottest selling in the NBA. Ticket broker StubHub ranks all 30 teams by demand for tickets and the Mavs are nineth this season.

It’s the first time they’ve ever ranked in the top ten.

The Mavs’ home game on Christmas Day against the Los Angeles Lakers is the sixth most in-demand game this season.
