The Dallas Mavericks are playing their best ball of the young season, and they've played some of their best ball overall on the road this season. The New Orleans Pelicans can't get out of their own way during this 5-game losing streak, and the injuries continue to pile up. Larry Nance Jr. is now out with a ribs' injury, which is now possibly 5 players they'll be without in this contest. The Mavs should get another win, as they're one of the hotter teams in the league right now.
