HOUSTON -- Dallas Mavericks rookie point guard Gal Mekel continued his streak in Saturday's 89-83 win over the Charlotte Bobcats.
For the fifth consecutive game -- the amount of preseason games the Mavs have played -- Mekel committed at least three turnovers. The three turnovers Mekel had against the Bobcats brings his total to an alarming 20.
Still, coach Rick Carlisle said Mekel is playing better than he was when he turned the ball over five times in the Mavs' preseason opener against the New Orleans Pelicans.
"He’s doing better each game,'' Carlisle said. "He’s doing well -- everything's getting better.
"He's getting more used to it, more tuned in. He's making steady progress.''
