The Dallas Mavericks make a trip east to face the Boston Celtics. The Mavericks are ten games under .500 this season, but have won two games in a row. Most recently defeating the Denver Nuggets, 122-105. The Boston Celtics are one of the best teams in the NBA right now. The Celtics are currently 21-4 this season and winners of two straight.
The last time both teams took the court against each other, was last season. The teams only faced each other once. Boston got the win, 110-102 in overtime.
The Dallas Mavericks are one of the worst teams in the NBA. The Mavericks have won two in a row, and are 6-4 over their last 10 games. In their last game against the Denver Nuggets, the Mavericks shot 57 percent from the floor, and were out rebounded 56 to 47 in the win.
Dallas looks like a team with fight and lack of talent this season. The west is loaded, and with the Mavericks current roster, the team is not going to come close to making a playoff run this season. Harrison Barnes has been the Mavericks first option this year. He leads the team in points (18.5 per game) and rebounds (7.6 per game) this season.
Rookie Dennis Smith Jr. has played solid for the Mavericks in his debut season. The guard is averaging 14.5 points per game and playing well in his role as the teams second scoring option. Veteran Dirk Nowitzki is giving the Mavericks quality minutes, averaging 11 points over 24 minutes per game this season.
Defensively, the Mavericks are one of the better teams in the NBA. Dallas is holding teams to 103 points scored per game this year. Good enough for 10th in the NBA. If Dallas can turn their defense into offense, the team has a shot to get on the right track before the all star break.
The Mavericks lack star power, and scoring right now to be taken serious in the western conference. Th organization is hoping for a top five pick in the draft at seasons end.
The Boston Celtics are 17 games above .500 this year. The Kyrie Irving trade looks like the best trade of the off season. The Celtics are reaping the benefits of his leadership and scoring ability. Irving is leading the team in points per game (25.3) this year.
Aside from the thieir record, and Irving’s talent, the Celtics have a tough squad. Young guards Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown, have answered any questions about their ability to produce at the NBA level. Brown is second on the team in scoring with 14.8 points per game and Tatum is adding 14 points per game as well this year.
On the defensive side of the court, the Celtics are second in the NBA in points allowed. Boston has been allowing 97 points per game this season, and have been doing it without Gordon Heyward. Once he returns, the Celtics will contend with Cleveland for a trip to the finals.

Free Dallas Mavericks vs. Boston Celtics NBA Prediction:
Dallas does not have the firepower offensively, to keep up with the Celtics at home. If Dallas is going to get a win tonight, the Mavericks must get a big scoring outburst from Barnes or Smith.
Boston is playing the best basketball as a team right now in the NBA. We know what Kyrie Irving has done this year, but it has been the role players and glue guys who make the Celtics so hard to beat.
