The Dallas Mavericks and Memphis Grizzlies meet Monday in NBA action at the FedExForum. Let’s preview this game and give out a pick and prediction.

The Dallas Mavericks are averaging 113.9 points on 47.4 percent shooting and allowing 113.3 points on 48.6 percent shooting. Luka Doncic is averaging 33 points and 8 assists, while Kyrie Irving is averaging 28.4 points and 5.2 rebounds. Christian Wood is the third double-digit scorer and Tim Hardaway Jr. is grabbing 3.6 rebounds. The Dallas Mavericks are shooting 37.1 percent from beyond the arc and 75.2 percent from the free throw line. The Dallas Mavericks are allowing 35.1 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 38.8 rebounds per game.

The Memphis Grizzlies are averaging 116.1 points on 47 percent shooting and allowing 112.2 points on 44.9 percent shooting. Ja Morant is averaging 27.1 points and 8.2 assists, while Desmond Bane is averaging 21.2 points and 5.1 rebounds. Jaren Jackson Jr. is the third double-digit scorer and Dillon Brooks is grabbing 3.3 rebounds. The Memphis Grizzlies are shooting 34.7 percent from beyond the arc and 72.6 percent from the free throw line. The Memphis Grizzlies are allowing 35.4 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 46.9 rebounds per game.

The Mavericks are 7-3 ATS in their last 10 road games and 3-8 ATS in their last 11 games overall. The Grizzlies are 42-18-1 ATS in their last 61 home games and 18-5 ATS in their last 23 Monday games. The under is 4-1-1 in Mavericks last 6 overall. The under is 17-8-1 in Grizzlies last 26 overall. The Mavericks are 8-3 ATS in the last 11 meetings in Memphis and 5-1 ATS in the last 6 meetings. The under is 6-1 in the last 7 meetings.

This really comes down to if Luka and Kyrie will play, as they're both listed as questionable at the time this article was posted. What we do know is the Memphis Grizzlies will still be without Morant and other key players are on the injury list as well. Basically, I'm banking on Luka and or Kyrie playing in this spot. Give me the free bucket.
