Cleveland Cavaliers vs Dallas Mavericks prediction

The Cleveland Cavaliers are finding ways to win games lately, but you have to question how long it will last given their injury situation. Garland and Mobley are out, while Mitchell and LeVert are questionable. The Dallas Mavericks are coming off a nice road win over the Suns, and I'm going to assume Luka Doncic will be good to go after dropping 50 points despite being on the injury list at the time of this writing. I just don't think the Cavs can keep this up given their injury situation. The line is reasonable. Give me the Mavs.
