The Dallas Mavericks are better than what they've shown up to this point, but at some point they have to prove it before I start backing them. In their last five games, the Mavericks are losing by an average of 8.4 points while allowing 46.5 percent shooting from the field and 40.9 percent shooting from deep. The Atlanta Hawks win at home by an average of 2.4 points and have the offensive horses to give the Mavs some fits. I'll take the underdog Hawks as a fade from the struggling Mavericks.
