Boston Celtics's Latest Performance :
The Celtics are coming off a feel-good win against the Hawks after losing three straight. The Celtics are a great team on paper but it seems like this year they have lost the firepower compare this team to last years team last year team was more hungry and they wanted to win. This year the Celtics have taken a step back it could be the team is now more mature and saving themselves for the postseason or there is really a problem that needs to be addressed. Kyrie remains the leader on the team as in many occasions this season he has single-handedly taken over games for the Celtics. Playing against the Mavs will be a great challenge for the Celtics because they are going up against rookie sensation Luka Doncic who is playing well and will be guarded by Tatum so that will be a fun matchup to keep an eye on.
Dallas Mavericks 's Latest Performance :
The Mavs are coming off a win against the Nets they are looking to start another winning streak. Leading the way was Harrison Barnes as he scored a season-high 28 points on 10-of-20 shooting, with five 3-pointers, he will look to keep this hot shooting up when they play the Celtics. It was the game the Mavs needed from their quiet leader after Barnes produced just 10 points on 3-of-14 shooting at Memphis on Monday. The Mavs starters made 22 field goals against the Nets. Barnes had 10 of them. Doncic chipped in with 21 points with 9 boards. The Nets were got very physical with Luka but the rookie was able to get back up every time he was on the floor and he got to the line 11 times which is a season-high. Luka will be looking forward to playing the Celtics as they got a great team and Luka never shy away from big moments. He leads the Mavs with 19.2 points per game, which is also tops among rookies. He is living up the hype and is carrying this Mavs team. People tend to forget he is only 19 and is the youngest MVP in Europe.

Against The Spread Selection: Dallas Maverick
My reason for the pick :
The Mavericks will be able to upset the Boston Celtics at home in this game as the Celtics will have to start looking for a solution after about 20 games in they only have a .500. record. For the Mavericks they will start to turn heads as they are finding themselves back into the playoffs hunt and a 19-year-old rookie is leading the team. Once Luka is comfortable playing in the NBA the Mavs will be a very tough team to beat. Go with the Mavs winning at home over the Celtics.
