The Dallas Mavericks are in a good position to chase the Los Angeles Lakers for the fifth-best record in the NBA Western Conference standings. This team just needs to stay put and win enough games for the home stretch. Luka Doncic will be resting in this game and Kristaps Porzingis will have added time to heal from his injuries. Tim Hardaway Jr. is expected to lead the team while both their European star combo is on the sidelines. So far, this team has been doing well winning four of their last five games and much thanks to the team’s depth for stepping up.
