Dallas Mavericks Preview

Dallas Mavericks vs Brooklyn Nets

The Dallas Mavericks have been splendid since the start of 2022. They started the season slowly but have now picked up the pace as they surge towards the playoffs. The Mavs, 43-27, are not too far behind the Utah Jazz (47-23) and the Golden State Warriors (48-23). With 12 games left, they will fancy their chances of finishing top 3 in the West.

Luka Doncic has been one of the biggest reasons behind the Mavs' turnaround. The Slovenian has been on a tear lately, averaging 29.9 PPG, 9.6 RPG and 7.1 APG since the All-Star break.

He was the Player of the Month in February, and he also climbed a few positions in the MVP charts. To complement him, the Mavs brought in Spencer Dinwiddie, who has done an exceptional job.

Against the Hornets, the Mavs will look to return to winning ways. The defeat against the 76ers was a disappointing one. They would like to end the last game of the four-game East Coast trip with a win.

Dallas Mavericks Predicted Lineup

G - Luka Doncic; G - Jalen Brunson; F - Spencer Dinwiddie; F - Dorian Finney-Smith; C - Dwight Powell.

Charlotte Hornets Preview

The Hornets (35-35) found some form in the last week. They are currently tied with the Atlanta Hawks (35-35) in ninth position. Despite being ranked second in offensive rankings, the Hornets have struggled in defense, where they are ranked 23rd.

If they wish to make it to the playoffs, they need to get better at that end of the floor. LaMelo Ball, Miles Bridges and Terry Rozier have been their main players this season. With just 12 games left, the trio will have to be at their best as the Hornets seek to reach the playoffs

The Hornets are in stunning form going into the Mavs game and will fancy their chances of a win at home. However, the Mavs are a strong side, so the Hornets will have to put in a strong collective effort.

Charlotte Hornets Predicted Lineup

G - LaMelo Ball; G - Terry Rozier; F - Miles Bridges; F - PJ Washington; C - Mason Plumlee.

Dallas Mavericks43-27-120Over 225.5 (-110)-1.5
Charlotte Hornets35-35+100Under 225.5 (-110)+1.5

The Mavs are expected to win, as they have been in good form in the last month. Although the Hornets are in the midst of a three-game winning streak, they have a leaky defense and could struggle to stop Luka Doncic.

The Mavs also have a great support cast around Doncic. Considering the same, the oddsmakers have given the Mavs better odds to win this game.
