The Mavs have been reeling in the last couple of weeks, but they have won 2 of their last 4 games and beat the Blazers in their last game in the Big D.
With not many games left the playoff picture in the bottom of the Western Conference is still very murky. The Blazers are in the 6th spot only ? game up on the Rockets and the Mavs and 1.5 games up on the Jazz.
The Blazers have lost 3 of their last 4 games.
In their last games the Mavericks were at home and beat the Blazers 132-120 in OT.
In the win over the Blazers Mavs’ leading scorer Dirk Nowitzki became only the 4th player every to score over 40 points after their 37th birthday. In that game the Mavs crushed the Blazers after regulation outscoring them 19-7 in OT.
In the Portland game the Mavs shot a scorching FG% of 55.1 while holding the Blazers to a FG% of 40.4% and still almost lost. The reason was that the Blazers dominated the offensive glass with 22 offensive rebounds while Dallas only had 8. The Mavs must hit the boards hard in this game considering it is in Portland and the Blazers will likely not have a poor shooting night again.
The Mavs rank 14th in the league in scoring and 18th in opponents’ points allowed.
This season the Mavs are 15-18 on the road and they have lost 3 of their last 4 games away from the Big D.

The Blazers are led by their guards of Damian Lillard and C.J. McCollum and while this duo did combine for 48 points in the recent loss to the Mavs they combined to shoot only 17/48 from the field.
The one player that kept the Blazers in the Dallas game was Mason Plumlee, who grabbed 19 boards and 10 offensive boards.
If the Blazers can rebound like they did against Dallas in their last game and hit some shots they should win this game to give them a little breathing room in the West.
