The Dallas Mavericks look for a win after winning 10 of their last 13 games. The Dallas Mavericks are averaging 111.8 points on 46.5 percent shooting and allowing 112.2 points on 46.2 percent shooting. Luka Doncic is averaging 28.4 points and 9.1 assists while Kristaps Porzingis is averaging 20.5 points and 8.6 rebounds. Tim Hardaway Jr. is the third double-digit scorer and Josh Richardson is grabbing 3.1 rebounds. The Dallas Mavericks are shooting 35.1 percent from beyond the arc and 78.1 percent from the free throw line. The Dallas Mavericks are allowing 37.2 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 42.9 rebounds per game.
The Denver Nuggets look to build on their five-game winning streak. The Denver Nuggets are averaging 115.9 points on 48.8 percent shooting and allowing 110.6 points on 46.9 percent shooting. Nikola Jokic is averaging 27.1 points and 11 rebounds while Jamal Murray is averaging 21.8 points and 4.6 assists.

The Mavericks are 24-11-2 ATS in their last 37 Saturday games and 2-5 ATS in their last 7 road games. The Nuggets are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games overall. The under is 6-2 in Mavericks last 8 overall. The over is 24-11-2 in Nuggets last 37 home games. The Mavericks are 5-1 ATS in the last 6 meetings in Denver.
The Dallas Mavericks have figured something out now that the wins are piling up, but they still find themselves in dog fights most nights and it's hard to trust them against the better teams in the league. The Denver Nuggets are on the end of a back to back, but they're winning by an average of 15 points while shooting 53.1 percent from the field during their five-game winning streak. Should be a fun contest, but I lean toward the Nuggets at home.
