Friday, January 14th finds the Dallas Mavericks facing the Memphis Grizzlies for the third time this season. The teams split the two prior meetings with Memphis winning 97-90 on December 4th and Dallas winning 104-96 on December 8th. The Southwest Division rivals will finish the season series in Dallas on January 23rd.
The Mavericks fell to the Knicks 85-108 on Wednesday while the Grizzlies played the Wolves in a 116-108 in the front side of the back-to-back to extend their win streak to 11 games in a row.
Luka Doncic is back for the Mavericks after missing time in protocols and a nagging ankle injury but he’ll need more help if Dallas wants to be considered a legitimate contender.
While he was out the Mavs feasted on defense, albeit I’ve questioned how robust that area of their game is. Rather it seemed like the team was able to perform defensively while Luka was out because Jason Kidd’s schemes could be the main focus. But with him back can they keep up the same effort?
If the match in New York offered hints to that question — the answer is a resounding NO.
Only three Mavericks scored in double-figures in the loss to the Knicks. Luka led the way with a double-double of 21 points and 11 rebounds, plus five assists, and two steals. The superstar struggled with his shot (8 of 23) particularly from deep where he was 1 of 9.
Jalen Brunson scored 14 points while Tim Hardaway Jr. chipped in 13 points.
Dallas struggled as a team from the perimeter shooting 21.6% (8 of 37), lost the rebounding battle (39 to 54), and scoring in the paint (38 to 50).
Kristaps Porzingis (quarantine) is downgraded to out while Willie Cauley-Stein (personal) will miss his 24th consecutive game.
The Grizzlies backcourt led the way in the victory versus the Wolves with Desmond Bane offering the top point tally of 21 points while Ja Morant flirted with a triple-double offering 16 points, eight rebounds, and nine assists.
Earlier in the day, Morant learned he’d moved up to second in fan voting for the All-Star Game. If he retains that position he’ll be starting in Cleveland in the big game.
Jaren Jackson Jr. continues to excel playing the center role with Steven Adams out. In the victory, he offered 20 points, five rebounds, and five blocks. During the win streak, triple J has collected 32 blocks or an average of 2.9 blocks per game.
John Konchar had a big night with a double-double of 15 points and 17 rebounds – – the latter a career-high.
Steven Adams (conditioning) and Yves Pons (quarantine) missed their fourth and fifth games with both questionable Friday. Killian Tillie entered protocols on Thursday and is out. Dillon Brooks (ankle) will miss between three and five weeks with a bad ankle sprain.

Free Dallas Mavericks vs. Memphis Grizzlies NBA Prediction:
Although the Mavs will be focused on rebounding from their oust in New York and have the rest advantage, I’m sticking with the winning streak and red hot Grizzlies.
