Dallas Mavericks

The Dallas Mavericks have been in red-hot form as they've won 14 of their last 16 games overall and they will be aiming for a fourth straight victory after blowing past the Rockets in a 147-136 overtime home win on Sunday. Kyrie Irving led the team with 48 points on 15 of 25 shooting, Luka Doncic racked up 37 points with nine rebounds and 12 assists while PJ Washington and Dante Exum scored 14 points apiece. As a team, the Mavericks shot 54 percent from the field and 15 of 39 from the 3-point line as they had to claw their way back from an early 22-point deficit, before they dominated overtime by 18-7 to make it look easy in the end.

Charlotte Hornets

Meanwhile, the Charlotte Hornets have been in terrible form as they've lost 10 of their last 12 games overall and they will be hoping to bounce back after falling just short to the Thunder in a 121-118 loss on Sunday. Grant Williams led the team with 19 points and five assists on seven of 10 shooting, Tre Mann added 18 points with six assists and four steals on seven of seven shooting while Vasilije Micic chipped in with 17 points and 10 assists. As a team, the Hornets shot 54 percent from the field and 17 of 40 from the 3-point line as they worked their way back from a 14-point deficit to take the lead in the fourth quarter, only to go ice-cold and score just seven points in the final 3:28 to allow the Thunder to slip away in a close finish.

Mavericks vs Hornets prediction

The Mavericks have ruled out Josh Green again and they have Maxi Kleber listed as questionable, while the Hornets don't have any players listed on their injury report. The Mavericks are currently one of the hottest teams in the league right now, they have all their key players healthy and they are up against a struggling Hornets squad with nothing to play for at this stage of the season. The line seems hefty, but I think the Mavericks get the win and cover with ease in this spot.
