Dallas Mavericks

The Dallas Mavericks have been on fire as they’ve won 11 of their last 12 games overall and they will be gunning for an eighth straight victory after routing the Rockets in a 125-107 road win on Sunday. Luka Doncic led from the front with 47 points, 12 rebounds and seven assists on 18 of 30 shooting, Kyrie Irving added 24 points with seven assists while Dante Exum chipped in with 13 points on five of five shooting off the bench. As a team, the Mavericks shot 51 percent from the field and 24 of 47 from the 3-point line as they caught fire early and were always in control after dominating the first half by 66-45. The only real blemish from the dominant win was Derrick Jones Jr who scored just two points on one of six shooting.

Golden State Warriors

Meanwhile, the Golden State Warriors are starting to heat up again as they are now gunning for a fifth straight win after sneaking past the Spurs in a 117-113 road win on Sunday. Stephen Curry led the team with 33 points and eight assists, Draymond Green added 21 points with 11 assists and six steals on eight of nine shooting, while Klay Thompson chipped in with 13 points. As a team, the Warriors shot 48 percent from the field and 16 of 39 from the 3-point line as they got off to a sluggish start and fell behind by 13 points, before they flipped the script and took over with a 37-21 third quarter effort to reclaim the lead for good.

Mavericks vs Warriors prediction

The Mavericks have ruled out Josh Green, and they have Dereck Lively listed as questionable, while the Warriors have ruled out Dario Saric, and they have Jonathan Kuminga listed as questionable. The Mavericks have quietly been one of the form teams in the league, and they just took down the red-hot Rockets in a big win on Sunday. The Warriors are starting to turn things around, and they are now on a four-game win streak after outlasting the Spurs in an impressive comeback win in their last outing. You can make an argument for either side here, but in terms of value, it’s hard to go past the Mavericks, who represent great value as the slight underdogs in this spot.
