The Dallas Mavericks have been quoted as desperately wanting to get out of the 7th spot to avoid the play in games, and if they want to achieve that they will need to take care of business in games like this down the stretch, as they take on the Sacramento Kings on Monday.
Dallas has won their last three in a row, but it is not like they had to be all that good in order to earn those wins, as they have beaten the depleted Lakers twice and the Detroit Pistons once over that span.
If the Mavericks are going to make any kind of noise in the playoffs they are going to need to get healthy and fast, as they have a long list of injuries including Luka Doncic and Kristaps Porzingis. The injuiries to Doncic and Porzingis are not thought to be overly serious as they are both listed with the Q tag here, but they very well might miss out on this game and if one or both of them do the Kings certainly have the talent to take advantage.
If one of their big guys miss I would look out for Dwight Powell here, who was excellent last time out against the Lakers putting up 25 points and 9 boards in 28 minutes and given the defense Sacramento plays he could top those numbers if he once again gets 28 minutes on the floor.
The Sacramento Kings are looking more and more like a sneaky good team going into next year’s season, as it would only take one or two more key pieces to make this team a competitor based on what they have shown down the stretch here.
Tyrese Haliburton looked great in that previous outing shooting 10 of 20 from the field and much more so then the statistics is passing the eye test and looks to be getting better and better with each start he gets.
The Kings were without their All-Star point guard De’Aaron Fox in that last game against the Warriors and they will be without him once again here, as he enters the NBA’s protocol for 10-14 days, so guys like Haliburton will have plenty more opportunity down the stretch to show us just how good they are.

Free Dallas Mavericks vs. Sacramento Kings NBA Prediction:
The Dallas Mavericks could be without two of their biggest offensive producers, so this is a bit dependent on what happens with those guys, but I would tend to side with the over here, as the Mavs will want to push the pace needing this victory and Sacramento has played in some very high scoring games this year, as they have one of the worst defense in all of basketball.
It does seem like this total has already accounted for some of the better players being out for both of these teams and at the end of the day 223.5 just seems too low in almost any Kings game this year.
