Thursday’s showdown in South Beach is a match up between two of the NBA’s worst teams record wise.
Even being two of the worst teams they are both coming into this game off a big win.
This is the first meeting between the two teams this year. Dallas won both meetings last year.
The Dallas Mavericks really struggled to open up the season but have been hot as of late. They have won their last three games and five of their last ten.
Dallas is coming into this game with all the momentum in the world. They are coming off a 99-98 win over the Bulls.
Wesley Matthews has been great as of late and hit the game winning three with 13 seconds to go in the game. He then played lock down defense on Jimmy Butler to conserve the win on the defensive end.
On of the reasons for their recent success is on the defensive end of the ball. They are giving up 98.2 points per game over the last five games. That is improvement over their season average of 100.8 points.
For the Mavericks to win they need to shut down Hassan Whiteside. He is going to be a match up nightmare but if they contain him, they should have a good chance to win.
The Mavericks have struggled on the road this season, registering a record of 5-16.
The Miami Heat like the Mavericks have really struggled this season, but they two like the Mavericks are coming off a huge win.
They Beat the Houston Rockets 109-103 on Tuesday night in South Beach. Wayne Ellington scored 18 points in the game and ended up being the key difference in the game.
The story of the season for the Heat is injuries. They knew they were going to not have Chris Bosh for the season, but it seems every other player on their team has been injured at one point or another.
Currently Josh Richardson, Justice Winslow, and Josh McRoberts are on the shelf for indefinite periods of times.
All the injuries have given other players like Rodney McGruder to be able to get a footing in the NBA and step up for the team.
For the Heat to win they just need to have a good output from everyone. There is nights where they have a lot of problems making shots, and it does them in.
On the season the Heat are 6-13 at home.

Free Dallas Mavericks vs. Miami Heat NBA Prediction:
These teams on paper are very similar. The difference in this game is going to be what team can sustain their offensive production. Both teams tend to go long periods without scoring and at the end of the day that does them in. I think the Mavericks will be the one to be able to sustain it and will come out of South Beach with a four game winning streak.
