The Los Angeles Lakers and Dallas Mavericks meet Friday in NBA action at the American Airlines Center.
The Los Angeles Lakers look for another win to build on their three-game winning streak.

Anthony Davis is averaging 28.8 points and 12.5 rebounds while LeBron James is averaging 23.3 points and 9.5 assists. Danny Green is the third double-digit scorer and Avery Bradley is grabbing three rebounds. The Los Angeles Lakers are shooting 33.6 percent from beyond the arc and 79.6 percent from the free throw line. The Los Angeles Lakers are allowing 28.8 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 46 rebounds per game. The Los Angeles Lakers have lost seven of their last nine road games.
The Dallas Mavericks look for a statement win to build on their impressive 3-1 record. The Dallas Mavericks are averaging 114.8 points on 45.5 percent shooting and allowing 110.8 points on 46.1 percent shooting. Luka Doncic is averaging 25 points and 6.8 assists while Kristaps Porzingis is averaging 22.3 points and 7.8 rebounds.

The Lakers are 4-9-1 ATS in their last 14 games playing on 2 days rest, 4-11 ATS in their last 15 road games and 6-1 ATS in their last 7 games overall. The Mavericks are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 vs. Western Conference, 1-4 ATS in their last 5 home games and 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games overall. The Lakers are 3-7 ATS in the last 10 meetings in Dallas and 4-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings. The over is 6-2 in Mavericks last 8 overall. The under is 4-1 in Lakers last 5 overall.
The Dallas Mavericks have been kind to us already this season and are a team on the rise and capable of coming up big in these moments. The problem is the Lakers have found their groove since their opening loss to the Clippers and Anthony Davis is really taking control of this team early, dominating at both ends. When LeBron and AD are dominating the way they have been over the last week, you kind of step out of the way, especially when the lines are so soft. I'll lay the bucket with the Lakers.
