Short-handed Blazers keying on Doncic as Mavs visit

The Trail Blazers know who will be the target of their defensive focus when they play host to the Dallas Mavericks on Wednesday night.

Portland forward Al-Farouq Aminu calls the Mavericks' Luka Doncic the "front-runner for Rookie of the Year," but it's beyond that. The 20-year-old Slovenian is a lock to win the NBA's rookie award as he leads the league's first-year players in scoring (21.0) and is second in rebounds (7.5) and assists (5.8).

The 6-foot-7 Doncic has averaged 24 points, 9.7 rebounds and 5.0 assists in three games against the Blazers this season, helping the Mavericks to two wins.
