Washington Wizards vs Dallas Mavericks prediction

The Washington Wizards don't play much defense and often feel like they're a carefree team that worries more about having fun than competing. That's a bad combo when going up against a hot and explosive Mavs team that's starting to find themselves and just lit OKC on fire for 146 points. Luka and Kyrie are going crazy and the Mavs found some athleticism in the trade market. The Mavs are a team to watch down the stretch. Thick line, but the Wizards could easily lose this game by 20-plus. It's the Mavs or pass for me.
