Dallas Mavericks Betting

Luka Doncic tried to rest his injury but his teammates were not able to get the job done and lost to the Chicago Bulls by ten points, 108-118. Filling in the hole Doncic left was Jaylen Brunson as he led the team with 31 points, seven assists, and five rebounds. Josh Richardson and Maxi Kleber each had 16 points while Tim Hardaway struggled with only 13 points while shooting 15 shots from the field. Dorian Finney-Smith just had 5 points and six rebounds as this team really missed the services of Doncic. The defense was horrible and if the Houston Rockets will have a field day with this kind of game.
