The Dallas Mavericks currently 12-11 will drive to play the Denver Nuggets currently 14-9 in a Western Conference matchup hosted at the Ball Arena today. The Mavericks have been able to somewhat find success through the last couple of games. They’ve won 2 consecutive matches, and 3 of their last 4 bouts. Last Tuesday, the Mavericks took the victory against the Phoenix Suns 130-111. Now looking at the other side of the court, Denver is on a 2 losing streak, defeated 121-106 by the New Orleans Pelicans on Sunday. Jeff Green , Peyton Watson , and Kentavious Caldwell-Pope are still in question to start for Denver due to injuries.
Denver has quite a talented and fundamentally well based offense. The Nuggets are able to pass to a third open man at the rim while in the perimeter. They go into this game ranked 12th in average points (114.7), 1st in field goal percentage (50%), and 9th in deep shooting percentage (43.2%).
Center and MVP Nikola Jokic is the key for Denver as usual. Jokic has an incredibly high basketball IQ and pass vision that cuts defense sides in 1 or 2 passes. The 4 time All Star can also cut in the paint and look for step back field goals.
Looking at the Mavs, guard Luka Doncic will look to push Dallas’ offense to the next level. Doncichas recently focused more on assisting his team while drawing double player defense close to him. He is currently 4th in the league in assists (8.5), as the 3 time All Star can pull up a shot from anywhere on the court with a high success rate. On top of that, Doncic leads the NBA with an average of 33.4 points per game. Tim Hardaway Jr, Spencer Dinwiddie, and Javale McGee have also contributed to the success of the team, by being a pass avenue for Luka’s incredible vision.
Looking at the overall cast and recent matches we lean towards a Mavericks win.
