Wednesday, February 3rd the Dallas Mavericks take on the Atlanta Hawks in the clubs’ first meeting of the season. Since the squads played so early last season it’s been almost a full year since they last lined up to face one another.
The Hawks hold the all-time record between the squads with 44 victories in 78 meetings. Last season these clubs played twice with the teams splitting the two contests.
Despite Kristaps Porzingis returning to the rotation, the Mavericks are reeling on a six-game losing streak and have lost nine of their last 11 games.
In fairness, during this losing streak, the Mavericks faced the Jazz who went on an 11-game win streak, the Nuggets who’ve won six of seven, and the Rockets who hold the current longest win-streak at six.
The last two games featured losses to the Phoenix Suns who were also mired in a rough patch but broke through with consecutive wins of 111-105 and 109-108.
When the team is rolling they look unbeatable but during this losing streak, the Mavericks are struggling to find their offensive flow or any semblance of defense.
The most recent loss stung as the Mavericks held an 11 point lead entering the final five minutes. Last season the biggest issue the Mavericks had was hanging onto leads down the stretch.
It summoned the adage when it rains it pours as toward the end of last season and early this season they seemed to have fixed that problem. Instead, they coughed up the lead and lost by a single point.
This game marks the front side of a back-to-back that the Mavericks are desperate to win. One positive is Maxi Kleber returned after missing 11 games due to the health and safety protocols. His presence should help quell the storm moving forward.
Luka Doncic led the way with 25 points while Josh Richardson scored a season-high 24 points. Porzingis added a double-double of 19 points and 10 rebounds while Tim Hardaway Jr. (18) and Jalen Brunson (11) were the other double-figure contributors.
Through the last six games, the Hawks have alternated wins and losses so if that trend holds true they would be on tap for a victory.
Their most recent game was a 107-99 loss to the defending champion Lakers.
Trae Young followed up his 41 point outing with a 25 point, 16 assist double-double in the loss. Clint Capela battled foul trouble the majority of the match but managed to register a double-double of 16 points and 13 rebounds with three blocks in spite of his limited minutes.
John Collins added 22 points and seven rebounds while Kevin Huerter chipped in 10 points as the other double-figure scorers.
De’Andre Hunter suffered an articular tear in his right knee in the first half of the Wizards game that will keep him off the court until mid-February.
Bogdan Bogdanovic (knee) and Kris Dunn (ankle) are expected out until Early March and mid-February respectively.

Free Dallas Mavericks vs. Atlanta Hawks NBA Prediction:
Every time the Hawks and Mavericks play it summons memories of the 2018 draft when the Hawks and Mavericks traded draft picks sending Young to the Hawks along with a future draft pick so Dallas could grab Doncic.

Desperation wins as the Mavericks length and a motivated Doncic should be the difference.
