Dallas continues to be a nice surprise, somehow this group is staying afloat and is actually above .500. You will have to think they will get some kind of bump once Dirk is available too.
L.A. is playing the night before which could be a factor here. They had been in really nice form before suffering back to back losses to start the week.
There was little expectation in Big D that this would be a year of much more than saying good bye to Drik and acclimating his heir apparent Luka Doncic. It is still early but there is a lot more going on than that.
Doncic has quickly proven to be as NBA ready as he seemed though even though he has performed well I am not sure he will be an elite player in the NBA. Still he is leading the team in scoring and they are winning.
He does have veteran help in key spots as the Mavericks hope that last year’s top pick Dennis Smith Jr progresses. It is encouraging that his shooting percentages are up but he still has to know when to turn down a shot. His athleticism is sometimes a hindrance that way.
DeAndre Jordan looks great attacking the glass and playing defense for this group. He is never going to be the reason the team loses a game. He is relentless and will have some advantages in this matchup.
The Mavs might actually be one of the deeper teams in the league at PG with Smith, JJ Barea and now Devin Harris back and playing well. It seems like there is a deal to be made that could improve the team down the road.
Los Angeles Lakers
LeBron James is having another superlative season and it is work. The Lakers are interesting again and they very much look like a threat to return to the playoffs. This is a flawed team but it is one that can win.
The challenge they seem to have on a nightly basis is who steps up in support of LeBron. Sometimes it is the young kids like Kyle Kuzma and Brandon Ingram and other nights it is vets like Jevale Mcgee, Rajon Rondo or Lance Stephenson. They don’t have a ton of size on this team but they can play with a lot of different parts which provides some advantages.
Lonzo Ball is still a challenge. His shooting has improved but is still subpar. Right now he has an ankle injury too and it might keep him from the game the night before against Indiana, or this one, or both. Rondo is out too which hampers their depth.

Free Dallas Mavericks vs. Los Angeles Lakers NBA Prediction:
I would think that the Lakers are favored at home. LeBron always bring attention and so does the Lakers brand. It becomes a market thing.
In this spot I do wonder about a little fatigue due to back to back games and getting hammered earlier in the week by Denver. Plus the injuries putting more on LeBron as a ball handler.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Mavs +5.5
With all of these situational factors in play I like the Mavs to cover here and perhaps even steal the game.
