To say this is a match up of 2 teams heading in different directions would be a major understatement. The Mavs are currently in a 5-game losing skid while the Hornets have won 7 in a row.
With their streak the Hornets have climbed to the 5th spot in the East and with their slide the Mavs have fallen into the 8th spot in the West.
In their last games the Hornets beat the Houston Rockets 125-109 and the Mavs lost to the Indiana Pacers 112-105.
The Mavs rank in the middle of the pack in terms of opponents’ points allowed (102.9 ppg), but in their 5 games losing streak they are giving up an average of 108.6 ppg.
Dallas ranks 14th in the league in scoring, but it is their D that is killing them, for the most part in the streak, as in the 5 games they have scored more than 100 points.
Deron Williams is the 2nd leading scorer for the Mavs on the season and he is really struggling. In his last 3 games he has totaled 30 points on 8/30 shooting. He needs to help Dirk Nowitzki out and the big German has been decent in the losing streak.
What is more troubling about the Mavs’ skid is that 4 of the 5 games were at home.
The Mavs are 14-17 on the road this season and they have lost their last 2 games away from the Big D.
The Hornets are playing with a ton of confidence and they have the longest current winning streak in the league.
Charlotte ranks 10th in the league in both scoring and opponents’ points allowed. Their offense has been playing great in the streak and in their last 3 games they have scored 125 points, 118 points, and 122 points respectively.
The Hornets have 6 players that are averaging in double figures led by Kemba Walker (21.4 ppg). In his last 5 games he has scored at least 33 points 3 times and in the last game he went for 26 points on 11/16 shooting.
For the Mavs to snap their skid they have to play good D on Walker and 2nd leading scorer G Nicolas Batum.
Very early in the season at Dallas the Hornets beat the Mavs 108-94.
This season the Hornets have been great at home going 25-9.
