Rockets vs Mavericks prediction

The Rockets feel like they’ve run out of gas with 4 straight losses and deep out of the play-in tournament race. The Rockets season is pretty much over. The Mavs are playing their best ball of the season with wins in 9 of their last 10 games, and they’ve covered 8 of those games. The Mavericks have won 8 of the last 10 games against the Rockets, which includes an 18 point win a week ago. The Mavs need to keep winning to stay out of the play-in tournament. I’ll lay the points with the Mavericks at home.
