It’s the first meeting between the Dallas Mavericks and Milwaukee Bucks this season as the clubs tip off at Fiserv Forum.
Dallas last played Wednesday in a 130-117 victory versus the Wizards while the Bucks arrive on the tail end of a back-to-back having routed the Hornets 130-99 on Friday.
Last season the Bucks swept the two-game season series and also holds the all-time record between the clubs with 45 victories in 83 matches.
The superstars are leading the way for Dallas with Luka Doncic averaging 30.7 points, 7.8 rebounds, 8.1 assists, and 1.1 steals while Kyrie Irving is averaging 22.3 points, 4.1 rebounds, 6.7 assists, and 1.2 steals.
Dereck Lively has been the x-factor for the Mavs as the rookie is already improving rim protection and assisting in keeping opponents out of the paint. That said, the Mavs are thriving offensively but have ample work to do on the defensive end.
Dallas ranks second offensively (120.5) and 25th in defensive rating (116.2) with a net differential of plus +4.3 which ranks eighth overall.
The Mavericks are 7-5 against the spread to this point in the season.
Mavericks Injury Report
To summarize the injury report…
- Kyrie Irving, PG (upgraded to probable—foot)
- Maxi Kleber, PF (OUT indefinitely — toe)
It’s a learning curve for the Bucks as Giannis Antetokounmpo and Damian Lillard figure out a rhythm to play with each other. Milwaukee lost both games Lillard was out although Antetokounmpo feasted in massive 35-point and 54-point double-doubles.
Without Giannis, Dame led a blow-out in Toronto so the fact both stars had good nights on Friday could be a turning point. It’s only a matter of time before the duo starts dissecting offenses with a killer pick-and-roll option but the biggest question facing Adrian Griffin is defense.
Ranking 21st is a problem especially considering they’ve consistently been one of the best defensive units in recent years ranking fourth last season.
Milwaukee’s key categories find them ranked seventh offensively (116.1), and 21st defensively (114.2) with a net differential of plus +1.9 which ranks 11th overall.
Betting on the Bucks against the spread is a tricky proposition given their 2-9 record in that category.
Bucks Injury Report
To summarize the injury report…
- Giannis Antetokounmpo, PF (upgraded to probable —calf)
- Jae Crowder, SF (OUT indefinitely — groin)
- Marjon Beauchamp, SF (questionable — ankle)
- Chris Livingston, SF (questionable — ankle)

Free Dallas Mavericks vs. Milwaukee Bucks NBA Prediction:
Both teams are searching to figure out a defensive identity and neither has faced an overly difficult schedule. Case in point, Dallas has only played two teams (Nuggets, Magic) with winning records.
This match then offers a litmus test for each club to measure how they stack up against a quality offense and how their defense holds up in this scenario.
Dallas has the major rest advantage with Milwaukee playing on consecutive nights but I’ll roll with the Bucks at home and the minuscule spread.
