The Mavericks enter this evening’s contest sporting a 26-29 record that ranks them 3rd overall in the Southwest Division. It comes as no surprise to see this lackluster record rank the Mavs 11th overall in the Western Conference. But since they’re 4 games behind the 8th seeded Los Angeles Clippers, it’s clear that Dallas will have a tough time sneaking into this year’s playoffs. Moreover, they’re also likely to struggle on the road versus Houston tonight. After all, Dallas is 2-8 in their last 10 versus Houston. On top of that, the Mavs just don’t match up that great against Houston. Right now the Rockets rank 11th in scoring and 11th in points allowed. For comparison, Dallas ranks 21st in scoring and 13th in points allowed. Although these two defenses aren’t that far from one another, the Rockets offense should be enough to win this game.
Players to Watch: Luka Doncic (20.8 ppg, 7.0 rpg, 5.5 apg), Harrison Barnes (17.7 ppg, 4.2 rpg, 1.3 apg), and Tim Hardaway JR. (16.0 ppg, 3.3 rpg, 2.3 apg).
The Rockets blast into this Monday night contest sporting a 32.23 record that ranks them as the top dog in the Southwest Division. And in the Western Conference, Houston ranks 5th overall. Right now the club is 8 games behind the conference leading Warriors, so there’s certainly room for improvement. Since Houston is 3-3 in their last 6, they’re having a tough time bridging that gap. Fortunately they’ve been thrown a bone in this evening’s matchup by facing one of the weaker teams out of the division. At the end of the day, tonight’s NBA betting online odds are confident Houston will win here and you should be too.
Players to Watch: James Harden (36.6 ppg, 6.7 rpg, 7.8 apg), Clint Capela (17.6 ppg, 12.6 rpg, 1.5 apg), and Kenneth Faried (16.2 ppg, 10.4 rpg, 1.1 apg).
