Top Maxi Kleber News

  • Mavericks' Maxi Kleber: Comes close to double-double

    Kleber produced 13 points (5-6 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 1-1 FT), eight rebounds, two assists and three blocks over 22 minutes during Tuesday's 119-109 victory over the Warriors in Game 4 of the Western Conference Finals.

    Kleber made his presence felt off the bench for the Mavericks and ended just two boards shy of posting a double-double. However, he hadn't reached the 10-point mark in any of his previous six contests, and he's not known for being an offensive threat off the bench, either. This might have been an outlier rather than the norm going forward for the big man, who's only averaging 8.8 points and 4.4 rebounds per game in the postseason.

  • Mavericks' Maxi Kleber: Goes scoreless in Game 3 loss

    Kleber provided zero points (0-5 FG, 0-5 3Pt), four rebounds and two assists across 25 minutes during Sunday's 109-100 loss to the Warriors in Game 3 of the Western Conference Finals.

    While the Mavs got 40 points from Luka Doncic, 20 from Jalen Brunson and 26 from Spencer Dinwiddie, virtually none of their role players showed up in Game 3. Kleber never appeared confident, passing up several wide open looks from three in the second half after struggling early in the game. After shooting 46.4 percent from three (4.0 3PA/G) in the Phoenix series, Kleber is now a combined 2-of-14 from beyond the arc in Games 1 through 3 of the Western Conference Finals.

  • Mavericks' Maxi Kleber: Solid output off bench

    Kleber supplied 14 points (6-9 FG, 2-4 3Pt), three rebounds, four assists and three blocks in 33 minutes during Friday's 103-94 victory over Phoenix.

    Kleber was efficient from the field and managed to contribute on both ends of the court while filling out the stat sheet admirably. He's now scored in double digits in two of the three games during the current series while averaging 11.6 points, 4.1 rebounds and 1.3 assists per game throughout the postseason.

  • Mavericks' Maxi Kleber: Sputters after big first half

    Kleber ended Monday's 121-114 loss to Phoenix with 19 points (6-9 FG, 5-8 3Pt, 2-5 FT), one rebound and one block over 25 minutes.

    Kleber provided a much-needed offensive spark beside Luka Doncic in the first half, knocking down five three-pointers en route to 16 points. He was unable to replicate that success after halftime, however, knocking down only one more triple and contributing very little in terms of complementary stats. Kleber averaged 17.3 points across his first three games of the postseason but has totaled a mere 29 points over four contests since.

  • Mavericks' Maxi Kleber: Sinks career-best eight threes

    Kleber racked up 25 points (8-11 FG, 8-11 3Pt, 1-2 FT), six rebounds and three assists across 32 minutes during Monday's 110-104 win over the Jazz.

    After scoring just 10 points in Game 1, Kleber came out of nowhere to sink eight of his 11 attempts beyond the arc in a dramatic Game 2 win that evened up the series with Utah. Kleber's proficiency from downtown is almost certainly an outlier, but the Mavericks needed a performance like this from the supporting cast with Luka Doncic (calf) sidelined.

  • Mavericks' Maxi Kleber: Massive output in Game 2

    Kleber finished with a season-high 25 points (8-11 FG, 8-11 3Pt, 1-2 FT) to go with six rebounds and three assists in 32 minutes off the bench Monday in the Mavericks' 110-104 win over the Jazz in Game 2 of the first-round series.

    Playing without Luka Doncic (calf) for the second game in a row, the Mavericks desperately needed members of their supporting cast to step up in order to even the series before heading to Utah for Games 3 and 4. Jalen Brunson stepped up as the Mavs' go-to scorer and finished with a career-high 41 points, while the 6-foot-10 Kleber's red-hot shooting from downtown limited the impact that three-time Defensive Player of the Year Rudy Gobert typically has near the rim. Kleber, who had missed the final four games of the regular season with an ankle injury, had converted only 29.7 percent of his field-goal attempts and 20.3 percent of his three-point tries since the All-Star break prior to Monday's eruption. With that in mind, DFS players shouldn't expect Kleber to replicate this sort of performance as the series shifts to Utah.

    Kleber missed the final four games of the regular season due to an ankle injury, but the time off has allowed him to heal ahead of Saturday's Game 1. Kleber provides some rebounding and defensive upside, but he's scored in single digits in his past 17 appearances.

  • Mavericks' Maxi Kleber: Full participant in practice

    Kleber (ankle) went through a full practice Wednesday, Brad Townsend of The Dallas Morning News reports.

    Kleber missed the last four games of the regular season due to right ankle soreness, but it sounds like he should return soon as he is now feeling "100 percent better" according to Townsend's report. Barring any setbacks, he should be available for Saturday's first round matchup with the Jazz. The 29-year-old is averaging 7.0 points, 5.9 rebounds, 1.2 assists and 1.0 blocks in 24.6 minutes per game this season.
