Pick, Prediction, & Preview:
Dallas Mavericks vs Minnesota Timberwolves
The Wolves will welcome the Mavericks to Target Center as they are currently on a three-game winning streak they were able to take down the Thunder in their last game while the Mavs were able to snap their three-game losing streak by beating the Suns. Game tips off at 8:00 PM ET.
Dallas Mavericks's Latest Performance :
The Mavericks took down the Suns at home in their last game they will now hit the road for a game to play the Wolves. The story of the season the Mavs are great at home but horrible on the road but perhaps playing against a coach which lacks experience the Mavs might be able to pull off an upset. Luka Doncic scored 30 points (8-of-14 FGs, 10-of-16 FTs) with six rebounds, five assists, three steals, four 3-pointers. He was the team point guard tonight with DSJ sitting out with an injury. He has scored 30+ for the fourth time in his rookie campaign. Maxi Kleber took advantage of a rare start on Wednesday, scoring 13 points he should be starting for this Mavs team because he fits in really well playing alongside Luka he brings defense intensity along with the ability to stretch the floor. If the Mavs do decide to run Luka at point guard they will be right back up with the top teams in the West. Playing against the Wolves will be a good test for Max as he will try to contain Towns.
Minnesota Timberwolves 's Latest Performance :
The Wolves are coming off an impressive win against the Thunder in their last game. It was Coach Ryan first career win. Ryan, who became the youngest coach to win in his coaching debut since Dave Cowens in 1978. Andrew Wiggins went off for a season-high 40 points and 10 rebounds. Playing at a faster pace fits Wiggins style of play so I expect Wiggins to thrive under coach Ryan. Karl-Anthony Towns scored 20 points in 24 minutes vs. the Thunder on Tuesday. Dario Saric outplayed Taj Gibson in Minnesota’s first game without Tom Thibodeau, scoring 15 points with seven rebounds, two assists, one steal and two triples in 25 minutes. With the new coach, everyone on the team has a chance to show him what they can do and there will be no attachment. Playing against the Mavs it will be interesting who they will put on Luka because the Mavs like playing him at the point from time to time.

Against The Spread Selection: Dallas Mavericks
My reason for the pick :
The Dallas Mavericks will finally figure out their woes on the road and take down the Wolves. The Mavs will still be without DSJ that means Kleber got his second start and did not disappoint the Mavs have found something with these five players on the floor with Luka running the point. The Wolves will put up a good fight but they can’t seem to find an answer to stop Luka in this game.
