This Friday will see an Eastern Conference showdown as the Dallas Mavericks across the Mississippi River to take on the Grizzlies in Memphis. The Mavericks took the last meeting between these two, winning 104-100 in Dallas earlier this month.
The Mavericks are struggling as of late and may be playing themselves out of playoff contention. They have dropped three games in a row, including a 121-118 loss to the Pelicans in New Orleans on Wednesday.
The Mavericks are currently in 11th place in the West.
The Grizzlies finally snapped a four-game losing streak on Wednesday by defeating the Indiana Pacers at home 110-97.
They hope the win means they are back on the right track, and Memphis is currently in 7th place in the Western Conference.
Dallas still had a shot to play for the final playoff spot in the Western Conference until they began their current three-game skid. They are still not out of the running completely, but it would take a drastic change to have a shot at the post-season.
The Mavericks currently rank dead-last in the NBA in scoring, averaging only 98 points per game. They also rank last in rebounding with only 38.4 and they are 27th in assists with 20.6 per contest.
Their defense continues to give them opportunities to win, and they allow only 100.4 points per game which ranks 4th in the league.
Harrison Barnes leads the way for Dallas with 19.5 points and 5.1 rebounds per game. Dirk Nowitzki still contributes 14.4 points and 6.6 rebounds a night.
Wesley Matthews, Seth Curry and J.J. Barea are also scoring in double-figures.
Memphis has been one of the streakiest teams in the league over the last month or so. Before Wednesday’s victory over the Pacers, they had lost four straight and not scored more than 94 points in any of them.
Before that, they won four in a row, and before that, they had lost five straight.
They need to stay on the winning track in order to remain in the playoffs and possibly improve their positioning.
The Grizzlies average only 100.9 points per game which ranks 27th in the NBA. They rank 24th in rebounding with 43 and 23rd in assists with 21.1 per contest.
Like their opponents, the Grizzlies continue to live by their defense. They allow only 100.2 points per game which ranks 3rd in the league.
Mike Conley leads the Memphis offensive attack with 20.4 points and 6.3 assists per game. Marc Gasol adds 19.9 points, 6.3 rebounds and 4.6 assists, and Zach Randolph contributes 14 points and 8.1 rebounds a night.
NBA Betting Trends:
- Mavericks are 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games after scoring 100+ points in the previous game
- Mavericks are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games following an ATS win

Free Dallas Mavericks vs. Memphis Grizzlies NBA Prediction:
Neither team has been playing particularly well as of late, but both need this win.
The Mavericks would basically be out of the running for the post-season with a loss, but the Grizzlies need to continue some positive momentum. This will be a low-scoring affair with two of the best defensive teams in the NBA.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Grizzlies -4.5
In the end, the better team wins at home.
