The Dallas Mavericks and the Atlanta Hawks duke it out at the State Farm Arena on Friday night. Here’s a Mavs vs Hawks Prediction.

Dallas Mavericks

The Dallas Mavericks have been in a rut as they've lost four of their last five games overall and they will be hoping to put a halt to a three-game skid after getting scorched by the Suns in a 132-109 loss on Wednesday. Luka Doncic led the team with 34 points, eight rebounds and nine assists, Tim Hardaway Jr added 17 points off the bench while Jaden Hardy chipped in with 11 points off the bench but no other player finished in double figures in scoring. As a team, the Mavericks shot 46 percent from the field and 17 of 43 from the 3-point line as they stormed out of the gates to an early 16-point lead, only to get completely outplayed the rest of the way to trail by as many as 29 points in their toughest loss of the season.

Dallas Mavericks Player Facts

  • Luka Doncic is the only player to have recorded a 40+ point triple-double this season.
  • Dereck Lively II ranks 8th in the Western Conference amongst qualified players for Blocks Per Game (1.4) this season.

Atlanta Hawks

Meanwhile, the Atlanta Hawks have been in a rut as they've lost five of their last eight games overall and they will be hoping to arrest a three-game skid after getting thrashed by the Warriors in a 134-112 road defeat on Wednesday. Dejounte Murray led the team with 23 points, seven rebounds and seven assists, Jalen Johnson added 21 points with nine rebounds and six assists while Saddiq Bey chipped in with 18 points. As a team, the Hawks shot just 41 percent from the field and 14 of 43 from the 3-point line poured in 37 points in the second quarter to keep pace with the Warriors in the first half, before they went cold and got outscored by 65-44 in the second half where the Warriors ran riot. Garrison Matthews had a rough game of just three points on one of seven shooting off the bench. The Hawks will meet the Raptors after this one.

Matchup/League Facts

  • The Hawks rank 1st in the league for offensive rebounds per game this season (13.0).
  • The Hawks rank 1st in the league for field goal attempts per game this season (93.0).
  • The Mavericks rank 2nd in the league for opponent blocks per game this season (3.9).
  • The Mavericks rank 2nd in the league for turnovers per game this season (12.2).

Mavs vs Hawks Prediction

The Mavericks could be shorthanded in this one with Kyrie Irving listed as questionable, while the Hawks are keeping eyes on Wesley Matthews and Trae Young who are both questionable also. Both teams have been struggling a bit lately with the Mavericks losing four of their lats five games and the Hawks losing their last three in a row, but there is still more to like about the Mavericks who at least have Doncic who has been in red-hot form. Both teams are banged up here, but I'm more comfortable taking the Mavericks who are coming into this one fresh off their worst loss.
