The New York Knicks invade the American Airlines Center to battle the Dallas Mavericks on Thursday night. Here’s a Knicks vs Mavs Prediction.

New York Knicks

The New York Knicks have been heating up recently as they are now gunning for a sixth straight win after blowing past the Trail Blazers in a 112-84 win on Tuesday. OG Anunoby led the team with 23 points on nine of 12 shooting, Julius Randle added 20 points with seven rebounds and eight assists while Quentin Grimes chipped in with 17 points off the bench. As a team, the Knicks shot just 41 percent from the field and 18 of 48 from the 3-point line, but this win was about their effort on the defensive end as they were always in control after dominating the first half by 63-41. The Knicks actually led in this game by as many as 39 points before they rested their starters in the fourth quarter.

New York Knicks Team Facts

  • The Knicks have lost each of their last six road games against Western Conference opponents following a win.
  • The Knicks have covered the spread in each of their last six games at American Airlines Center against Western Conference opponents that held a winning record.
  • Each of the Knicks’ last five games have gone UNDER the total points line.

Dallas Mavericks

Meanwhile, the Dallas Mavericks have been in fine form as they’ve won four of their last six games overall and they will be hoping to bounce back here after having their three-game win streak halted by the Grizzlies in a 120-103 loss on Tuesday. Kyrie Irving led the team with 33 points, eight rebounds and four assists, Luka Doncic added 31 points with six assists while Derrick Jones Jr chipped in with 11 points. As a team, the Mavericks shot 43 percent from the field and nine of 27 from the 3-point line as they were off their game from the start, scoring just 22 points in the first quarter before they allowed 39 points in the second quarter to fall behind by as many as 22 points in this one. The Mavs will play against the Pelicans in a back-to-back set and then will meet the Lakers after this one.

Dallas Mavericks Team Facts

  • The underdogs have won five of the last six games between the Knicks and Mavericks at American Airlines Center.
  • The underdogs have covered the spread in each of the last six games between the Knicks and Mavericks at American Airlines Center.
  • Seven of the Mavericks’ last eight games as underdogs have gone UNDER the total points line.

Knicks vs Mavs Prediction

The Knicks are still missing Mitchell Robinson, while the Mavericks have ruled out Dante Exum, Luka Doncic and Dereck Lively and Grant Williams is questionable. The Knicks are starting to heat up again with five wins in a row and they moved from underdogs to favorites in this one with the news of Doncic being injured. I’m sure we’re going to see a big game from Irving in this one, but the Knicks have been playing excellent defense lately and the Mavericks’ role players haven’t been stepping up lately.
