Usually it’s easy to pick against the Cavaliers and feel safe if your decision. On Saturday, however, the Cavs may have an advantage, in that they’re playing a team without starting center DeAndre Jordan, Dennis Smith Jr. and guard/forward Wes Matthews are all on their way to New York.
It’s unclear at this time whether or not Trey Burke, Tim Hardaway Jr. and Courtney Lee will be available to play, as of this writing. So keep an eye on that ahead of tip off.
The Mavs pulled off the biggest trade of the NBA season this week—and yes, that’s including the Jimmy Butler deal to Philadelphia from earlier this year. If Porzingis is healthy, the Mavs just added a heck of a player for the future next to Luka Doncic.
As far as Saturday goes, Dallas will be shorthanded and potentially working in new players.
AKA, it’s going to be the Luka Doncic show—for better or worse.
Although Doncic has been downright brillian this season, the way he plays the game is begging for a slump at some point. His step-back three-pointer is great when is falling, but he’s not the most atheltic player in the gym who can find ways to compensate for an off night.
Although a bad game here or there will eventually be masked just fine with Porzingis—and even Tim Hardaway Jr., who had taken on a No. 1 scoring role with the Knicks—right now he doesn’t have that luxury.
Luka could will this team to victory all on his on Saturday, or he could single-handedly shoot the Mavs out of a straight up win.
The Cleveland Cavaliers are still without Kevin Love, but they have won two games in a row. That may not sound like a big deal, but it’s just the second time all season they’ve reached that milestone.
Against Dallas (and this shouldn’t come as a surprise), the only objective is to make Luka Doncic’s life difficult. If Cleveland can take the runaway Rookie of the Year candidate out of this contest, guys like Collins Sexton won’t have to play catch-up late in the contest.
Cleveland has a real shot at winning its third straight game, which is something it hasn’t accomplished yet this season.

Free Dallas Mavericks vs. Cleveland Cavaliers NBA Prediction:
The Dallas Mavericks are the better basketball team at this point in the process, but what nobody’s going to talk about is that as long as Kristaps Porzingis is sidelined, there’s a chance the Mavs could slide in the standings enough to luck into Zion Williamson.
What does that mean for Saturday’s contest? It means Dallas (at least Dallas Management) will have no interest in picking up a victory against another team competiting for the NBA’s worst record.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Cavaliers ATS
Give the Cavaliers their third win in a row, and consider that a victory for an Mavs fan hoping to rack up ping pong balls the rest of the season.
