The Dallas Mavericks look for a victory after losing 10 of their last 13 games. The Dallas Mavericks are averaging 108.5 points on 44.7 percent shooting and allowing 110.1 points on 46.1 percent shooting. Luka Doncic is averaging 21.1 points and 5.9 assists while Tim Hardaway Jr. is averaging 15.5 points and 3.2 rebounds. Dwight Powell is the third double-digit scorer and Jalen Brunson is dishing 2.9 assists. The Dallas Mavericks are shooting 34.2 percent from beyond the arc and 74.3 percent from the free throw line. The Dallas Mavericks are allowing 34.5 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 44.8 rebounds per game. The Dallas Mavericks have lost five of their last six home games.
The 76ers are 1-5 ATS in their last 6 vs. NBA Southwest. The Mavericks are 0-3-1 ATS in their last 4 home games, 5-11 ATS in their last 16 games playing on 0 days rest and 15-7-3 ATS in their last 25 vs. Eastern Conference. The home team is 7-3 ATS in the last 10 meetings. The under is 4-1-1 in Mavericks last 6 games playing on 0 days rest. The over is 6-2 in 76ers last 8 overall.
The Philadelphia 76ers may be piling up the wins, but they're only winning their last five games by an average of 0.4 points. The 76ers don't blowout teams often and every now and then can stink up the joint against a bad team. The Dallas Mavericks have been out of things for a while, but they continue to compete, play hard and just beat the Oklahoma City Thunder as 12.5-point underdogs. The Mavs also went toe-to-toe with out playoff contenders in the Miami Heat, Golden State Warriors, Portland Trail Blazers and Denver Nuggets. The Dallas Mavericks don't go down easily. Assuming Luka Doncic will play in this game, I want the points on my side.
