Sunday April 1 finds the Dallas Mavericks arriving at Quicken Loans Arena to face their host the Cleveland Cavaliers. In their last game the Mavericks lost to the Timberwolves. Conversely, the Cavaliers arrive following a solid victory over the New Orleans Pelicans.
Last season the teams split the annual series while this year the Cavaliers took the initial match in Dallas. The Cavaliers hold the all-time record having bested the Mavericks in 39 of their 72 matches.
Four Mavericks registered double digits in the low scoring affair versus Minnesota. Harrison Barnes led the way with 19 while Dennis Smith Jr., Yogi Ferrell, Maxi Kleber each pitched in with 17, 14 and 10 respectively.
As with most teams in the tank race the Mavericks have a long list of walking wounded. Dirk Nowitzki (ankle), Dwight Powell (knee) and Salah Mejri (knee) are all questionable for Sunday.
JJ Barea has missed three games due to a personal issue and will definitely not play in Cleveland. Wesley Matthews (stress fracture in leg) and Seth Curry (tibia) will both miss the remainder of the season.
LeBron James continues his ‘better with age’ tour having played in every Cavaliers game this season. He continues to set or break records on what seems like a nightly basis.
In the last game he broke Michael Jordan’s most consecutive games with double digit scoring by accomplishing the feat in 867 games in a row. In the win over the Pelicans James led the way scoring 27 points, dishing 11 dimes and grabbing 9 rebounds.
New recruits Rodney Hood (16) and Jordan Clarkson (23) continue to integrate into the Cavaliers system and are fitting in well with their new squad.
George Hill suffered an ankle sprain in the game versus Minnesota and his status is unclear for this match. Given it’s the Mavericks the Cavaliers may exercise caution and hold him out.
The combination of being away from the team to deal with a death in the family coupled with a foot injury has kept Kyle Korver out of action the past six games.

Free Dallas Mavericks vs. Cleveland Cavaliers NBA Prediction:
With the uncertainty of Nowitzki and Powell being available it leaves far too much pressure on Barnes to make up the slack. Although the Mavericks are capable of playing spoiler, they aren’t as successful on the road. This coupled with the Cavaliers recent offensive excellence doesn’t bode well for the Mavericks.
