Tuesday, May 11th the Dallas Mavericks take on the Memphis Grizzlies for the third and final time this season. The Mavericks won both prior meetings including the match on February 22nd (102-92) and April 14th (113-114).
Entering the match the Mavericks are on a four-game winning streak and have vaulted up into the fifth seed. Memphis is also on a winning streak albeit a shorter run of two games versus the Raptors and Pelicans.
The Mavericks hold the all-time record between the squads with 69 victories in 99 meetings. Last season these clubs played three times with the Mavericks winning two out of the three matches..
Although Luka Doncic got ejected from the match in Cleveland it didn’t come with a technical so he won’t miss any other games. While he did hit Collin Sexton in the nether regions it was as he spun around after getting pushed in the back.
It was yet another example of the wonky officiating this season. Sexton who was the instigator got off scot-free, got two free throws for the flagrant, and the Cavs kept the ball.
Essentially, the refs are sending a message to other teams to push players like Doncic around and you can gain an advantage. Fortunately, his teammates seemed to take umbrage with the call that sent their star to the locker room and they rallied to keep the lead and win easily.
Interestingly, while the Mavericks have been on this tear winning 10 of 12 matches Kristaps Porzingis hasn’t played in nine of the last ten.
While the unicorn has been sidelined Tim Hardaway Jr., Josh Richardson, Dwight Powell and Jalen Brunson have developed cohesion and chemistry on both sides of the court.
If he returns for the postseason those steps Dallas made while he was out should pay dividends and take some pressure off him and Luka.
The Memphis Grizzlies are 4-4 in their last eight games. They got the win versus the Pelicans but the fact their last two victories came against clubs missing the majority of their core stars speaks to issues of consistency.
In spite of their struggles, now that Jaren Jackson Jr. is back on the court the defense is looking stronger and it should only be a matter of time before his presence equates to an uptick on the offensive side of the court.
In the win Monday, Jonas Valanciunas continued his hot streak with a double-double of 20 points and 11 rebounds plus five blocks. Dillon Brooks led scoring with 23 points.
Although Ja Morant struggled to score (5 of 14) he still managed to register a double-double of 12 points and 12 assists.
As the Grizzlies close out the week they are trying to move up to the eighth seed. The play-in tournament offers the best shot to the teams who begin in the seventh or eighth seeds because if they lose they’ll get a second opportunity. Conversely finishing ninth or 10th means the team has to win or they are eliminated.
Grayson Allen is day-to-day with an abdominal injury while Sean McDermott is also day-to-day with a foot injury.
NBA Betting Trends:
- The Pelicans are 8-2in their last 10 head to head meetings
- The Pelicans are 8-2 ATS in the last 10 head to head meetings
- Over/Under is 3-5-2 in the teams last 10 head to head meetings
Free Dallas Mavericks vs Memphis Grizzlies NBA Prediction:
.Some of the Mavericks’ weird losses this season have occurred versus the lower seeds but they’ll have the rest advantage. Conversely, Memphis is motivated and has that Doncic crazy off-balance game-winner from April 14th to avenge.
