The Dallas Mavericks are the more talented team and have been far more successful offensively. However, the bottom line is both teams have held their own in the summer league with three straight wins and 3–1 records overall. The Hawks have also been slightly better defensively. Should be a fun game Sunday night and could go either way, that's why I want the free bucket in my pocket.
