On Tuesday, May 4th, the Dallas Mavericks and Miami Heat play for the second and final time this season. The Mavericks won the initial match on January 1st (93-83).
The Heat holds the all-time record between the clubs with 36 wins in 68 meetings. Last season, the teams played twice with the Heat winning both contests.
Over the last nine games, the Mavericks are 6-3 with all three losses to the Kings. Suffice to say Dallas is thrilled they won’t have to play Sacramento in the postseason because they are a matchup nightmare.

Of their eight remaining games the Mavs will face three top-eight seeds (Heat, Nets, Grizzlies) and three legit tanking clubs (Cavaliers twice and Wolves).
The other two matches feature teams vying to make the play-in tournament (Pelicans, Raptors). However, by May 12th and 14th those clubs could be less invested if they haven’t moved up.
In contrast, the Lakers and Blazers will face five top eight seeds. So the fact all three teams begin week 20 with identical records favors the Mavericks. That and the fact Dallas is leading their division gives them the best odds of finishing tops among those three clubs.
The emphasis for Rick Carlisle will be getting his squad to the postseason healthy and trying to get Luka Doncic not to pick up any more technical fouls or risk a one game suspension.
The superstar led the Mavs with 30 points, six rebounds, six assists, and two steals but shot 1 of 7 from deep and had six turnovers.
Jalen Brunson (17), Dwight Powell (13), and Josh Richardson (11) were the other double figure contributors.
Kristaps Porzingis was out for a second game and fifth of the last six dealing with both knee soreness and ankle woes. Tim Hardaway (ankle) also missed the Kings match.
The fight for the middle of the East is heating up (no pun intended) with the Knicks, Hawks, Heat and Celtics separated by 2.5 games for the fourth through seventh seeds.
Miami has won seven of nine including three in a row with the most recent a 121-111 victory versus the Hornets.
Five of Miami’s seven final games are versus top seven seeds with the two games versus the Celtics looming to affect seeding. Although the 76ers and Bucks are also on tap by the time they play (May 13th, 15th) those clubs may know their position and not be rolling out the A-team.
Just as the Heat did in the Disney bubble it sure seems like they are finding their rhythm and chemistry at the perfect time in the season.
Six Heat scored in double figures versus Charlotte with Bam Adebayo collecting double-double of 20 points and 10 rebounds. Jimmy Butler was key as well with 18 points, eight rebounds, eight assists, a steal, and a block.
Kendrick Nunn (19), Goran Dragic (18), Dewayne Dedmon (14), and Duncan Robinson (10) were the other double-figure scorers.
Tyler Herro (foot) and Victor Oladipo (knee) are both out.

Free Dallas Mavericks vs. Miami Heat NBA Prediction:
Both clubs have been among the hottest clubs and each is invested in securing their seeding. Watch for Jimmy or Dragic to try to frustrate Doncic knowing he needs to avoid picking up that 16th tech.
