The Line: Denver Nuggets -- Over/Under: See the Latest Odds
The Dallas Mavericks travel to the Pepsi Center to battle the Denver Nuggets tonight.
The Dallas Mavericks will be looking for back to back wins for the first time in three weeks after beating the Suns by 107-104 on Wednesday. Monta Ellis led the scoring with 20 points while Dirk Nowitzki scored 19 points while Tyson Chandler added 12 points and 23 rebounds as the Mavs improved to 47-31 and locked up the seventh seed in the Western Conference. Overall, the Mavs haven't been playing anywhere near their best as they've won just three of their last nine games and the news is that Chandler Parsons will continue to sit out which isn't ideal preparation for the playoffs that are just around the corner.
