The Mavericks will make their return to American Airlines Center after a winless road trip as they will take on the Knicks. The Knicks are coming off a loss against the Pacers. Game tips off at 8:30 PM ET.
New York Knicks's Latest Performance :
The Knicks’ one-game winning streak ended Wednesday night in a 107-101 Garden loss to the Pacers as Victor Oladipo got the better of Hardaway down the stretch. The Knicks fell to 2-6 stung by losses to playoff teams such as Boston, Golden State and Milwaukee that were decided deep into the fourth quarter. It is great to see the Knicks competing against playoffs team this season. Tim Hardaway Jr. scored a season-high 37 points with one rebound, one assist and seven 3-pointers. He is the clear leader of this Knicks franchise they are still playing without their talented rookie Kevin Knox who is missed in the Knicks rotation. Noah Vonleh scored 14 points with 10 rebounds, four assists, two steals, three blocks. He looks to have a role solidified at PF with some spot center minutes for the next few weeks his hard work during the summer has clearly paid off. He will have to contain Luka in his next game.
Dallas Mavericks 's Latest Performance :
The Mavericks are coming off a hard-fought loss against the Lakers the game went down to the wire although the Mavs have started off the season 2-6 in their last two games they lose by just 6 points combined. Rookie Luka Doncic didn’t have a great scoring night against the Lakers as he had 14 points with 7 assists and 5 rebounds he did come through in the clutch hitting the tieing basket but unfortunately, Matthews fouled James at the end of the regulation which allowed him to seal the win at the line. Luka is definitely the correct draft choice for Dallas as he is starting to glimpse of greatness in the future. Returning home playing against the Knicks I expect him to have a good game. Harrison Barnes had 19 points on Wednesday, making 6-of-16 shots he does look healthy on the floor and is starting to look for his shot more. Once Barnes and Luka develop great chemistry this Dallas team will be fun to watch.

My reason for the pick :
The Mavs will snap their 5 game losing streak as they will be able to take down the Knicks at home. I expect Luka to have a great game at home as he will be delighted to come out with with a win he will start to take over games as he is more comfortable in his new offense. For the Knicks, they will drop two games in a row, it will be hard for them to win with Hardaway being the only scorer on the team.
