Dallas Mavericks

The Dallas Mavericks have been in red-hot form as they've won 11 of their last 12 games overall and they will be gunning for a fifth straight win after routing the Hornets in a 130-104 road win last night. Luka Doncic led the team with a triple-double of 39 points with 12 rebounds and 10 assists, Daniel Gafford added 26 points on 12 of 12 shooting while Kyrie Irving tallied 18 points with eight rebounds and nine assists. As a team, the Mavericks shot 53 percent from the field and 17 of 50 from the 3-point line as they took control right from the start and never looked to be in trouble after dominating the first half by 69-47.

Miami Heat

Meanwhile, the Miami Heat have been in fine form as they've won five of their last seven games overall and they will be eager to keep it going after outlasting the Hawks in a thrilling 117-111 double overtime win last night. Tyler Herro led the team with 33 points on 13 of 25 shooting, Jimmy Butler added 25 points with eight rebounds and nine assists while Nikola Jovic chipped in with 23 points on eight of 12 shooting. As a team, the Heat shot 47 percent from the field and 18 of 45 from the 3-point line as they looked to be in trouble when they allowed the Hawks to run down their 15-point lead, but they kept the pressure on and restricted the Hawks to just four points in the second overtime to win easily in the end. The Heat will take on the Raptors after this one.

  • The Mavericks rank 2nd in the league for opponent blocks per game this season (4.0).

Mavericks vs Heat prediction

The Mavericks are still shorthanded with Josh Green and Dereck Lively still out, while the Heat are still sitting out Terry Rozier, Duncan Robinson and Tyler Herro. The Mavericks have quietly been one of the hottest teams in the league, they have both Irving and Doncic playing some of their best basketball of the season, and they are deserved road favorites. Yes, the Heat represents decent value as the home underdog, but they are coming into this one fresh off a double-overtime game, so I'm leaning towards the Mavericks to get the job done at the moderate line.
