Pick, Prediction, & Preview:
Golden State Warriors vs Dallas Mavericks
The Mavericks will welcome the Golden State Warriors to American Airlines Arena as they are coming off a 50 point win over the Jazz while the Warriors are coming off a loss against the Rockets. Game tips off at 8:30 PM ET.
Golden State Warriors 's Latest Performance :
The Warriors will be looking to bounce back after an embrassing loss against the Rockets. It is the first time since 2013 that the Warriors starter didn’t make a three point shot. Kevin Durant scored 20 points during a 107-86 blowout loss in Houston on Thursday, adding five rebounds two assists and one block in 30 minutes. The other four starters picked up just 20 points combined as the Warriors scored by far their season-low in points on the year — it was 98 with 108 being second worst. Durant was on cruise control coming into this game and he’ll likely get it going again in a back-to-back set in Dallas and San Antonio on Saturday and Sunday. Draymond Green returned from a game suspension on Thursday, failing to score with five rebounds, five assists. The Warriors were beat by their own game tonight and there is nothing the Warriors could have done because the Rockets set the tone from the beginning.
Dallas Mavericks 's Latest Performance :
The Mavericks are hoping to replicate their performance against the Jazz in this game against the Warriors. They are coming off a 50 point victory in their last game. For the third straight game the Mavs proceeded to roll up their sleeves and hold an opponent under 100 points. The Mavs did it to the Oklahoma City Thunder last Saturday (96), they did it to the Chicago Bulls last Monday (98), and now they’ve done it to the Utah Jazz (68). Players are locking in on their defensive assignments, they’re playing help defense, they’re talking on defense and the results have been absolutely phenomenal. Mavs bench warmers outscored their Jazz bench warmers, 66-21. The Mavs reserves were 25-of-36 from the field for a whopping 69.4 percent and grabbed 25 rebounds, while Utah’s reserves were 8-of-40 from the field for 20 percent and grabbed 10 rebounds. The Mavs will be up for the Warriors challenge who is just coming off a blowout loss against the Rockets.
