Doncic, Mavs seek elusive playoff success as Kidd takes over

DALLAS (AP) Now that Luka Doncic has led his home country deep into the Olympic tournament, the star point guard's next task is getting the Dallas Mavericks out of the first round of the playoffs.

His new coach happens to be the last point guard to win a postseason series in Dallas, and Jason Kidd's best bet to do it from the bench 11 years later likely means figuring out how to turn Kristaps Porzingis into the European sidekick the Mavericks always envisioned.

"The simple way to put it is I want KP to be a basketball player," Kidd said. "Being able to roll, to be able to shoot the mid-range, to able to put the ball on the floor, I want him to be who he is, a basketball player, and not just be limited to shooting 3s or crashing from the corner."
