Dallas Mavericks vs Golden State Warriors prediction

The Golden State Warriors are coming off an embarrassing loss to a Heat squad that was missing so many key players, so I'm going to expect them to be focused for this one. The Dallas Mavericks could once again be without Luka Doncic and I want nothing to do with a Mavs side that's going to be without Luka and Kyrie. The Warriors have won 6 of the last 8 meetings against the Mavs. Assuming Luka isn't going to play, I'll lay the chalk with the Warriors.
