The Dallas Mavericks and Golden State Warriors will play Tuesday for the fourth and final time this season. The Warriors lead the series 2-1.

Stephen Curry has been on fire lately, knocking down 55.4 percent from the field and 51.4 percent from three in his last five games.

The Mavericks are just a half a game ahead of the Memphis Grizzlies for the eighth seed in the West. On the season, the Mavericks average 104.9 points on 47.3 percent shooting and allow 102.6 points on 46.4 percent shooting. Much like the Warriors, the Mavericks are a scoring machine, scoring 100-plus points in six straight games and winning five of their last eight when hitting triple digits. The Mavericks are shooting 40.3 percent from beyond the arc in their last five games. The Dallas Mavericks are 40-34 ATS overall and 17-21 ATS at home.
The Warriors are 8-2 ATS in their last 10 games following a S.U. loss and 2-6 ATS in their last 8 games overall. The Mavericks are 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games following a S.U. win and 2-5 ATS in their last 7 home games. The Warriors are 6-2 ATS in the last 8 meetings in Dallas.
This should be a close game with both offenses able to put up a truckload of points. But I'll take the Warriors and the points considering they have been great against the number against good teams this season. Golden State has a chance to win SU.
