Dallas began its post-All Star Break schedule with a victory over the Spurs Wednesday but then lost in Oklahoma City on Thursday, 116–108.
Neither Luka Doncic nor Kristaps Porzingis played on the second night of the back-to-back. The Mavericks listed Doncic out with an ankle injury and Porzingis for “injury management.” Neither appears on the current injury report, however.
Jalen Brunson and Josh Richardson scored 26 and 27 points, respectively. Tim Hardaway Jr. scored 24 points as the sixth man off the bench, which has been his permanent role ever since the calendar flipped to February.
This game represents the rubber match in the three-game season series. Dallas won the first matchup at Denver, 124–117, in overtime. The Nuggets extracted revenge less than three weeks later, winning 117–113 in Dallas.
The Nuggets get to host this one but they face the more difficult scheduling scenario with a game in Memphis on Friday night.
They will welcome back Paul Millsap, who sat out the final ten games of the unofficial first half after injuring his knee. He came off the bench for Denver on Friday after starting his first 26 games played this season.
Gary Harris, who has played in exactly one game since the calendar turned to February, remains out with an adductor problem. RJ Hampton is out while in health and safety protocol. JaMychal Green is inactive Friday due to an illness. None have been ruled out for the long-term, however.
The Nuggets went into the break on a four-game winning steak that included a 4–0 record against the spread.

Free Dallas Mavericks vs. Denver Nuggets NBA Prediction: Dallas on the road.
The Mavericks lost a game they may have won against the Thunder when they made the decision to sit Doncic and Porzingis.
That decision will impact this game, in the short-term, however. While Dallas’ biggest players enter this one healthy, Denver has to deal with a difficult back-to-back spot.
Dallas offers nice value as a modest underdog in a spot it may well deserve to be the favorite.
