There are a few team that have yet to lose but Toronto is the only one that is 5-0, matching a career best start and with a great chance to extend it against Dallas. This Kawhi Leonard guy is pretty awesome, even if they might not risk him on back to backs for a while. Toronto has awesome depth in case you find out too late that he has the night off.
Dallas has acquitted itself pretty well so far. This team is going to be a wild card because its nucleus is very untested. They might be better than we think but some nights they are going to look pretty bad too. I don’t like their matchup with Toronto.
The Mavericks have two young players that are going to determine what this franchise is for the next 5 years. Dennis Smith Jr is super quick and more of a scoring point who broke into the league last season. Luka Doncic is a more classic Euro wing, more finesse than athleticism, who is a rookie this season.
Even though Smith has more NBA experience it is Doncic who has looked better this season. The big difference, being able to shoot – and he is not even shooting that great. He has a savvy beyond his years and it is helping Dallas today. Smith is still rough around the edges.
Somehow Wesley Matthews has become serviceable again. He has been a total bust since coming from Portland as a free agent but right now he is averaging 19ppg, which would be a career high. He could always shoot and knows his spot but how long can he keep this up.
Inside Dallas suddenly has some beef with DeAndre Jordan. It should surprise nobody that his game translates well to Dallas, he is averaging 15 & 13, and provides some toughness.
Harrison Barnes may play for the first time this season against Toronto. He will give them more depth and so will a fading Dirk once he takes the floor. The Mavs have way more players than they did a year ago.
It is still early but Toronto is looking great. New head coach, new top player, no problem. Toronto not only has better players than they did a year ago but they have better depth as their young guys continue to develop.
Kawhi Leonard has been superb early on but not to be lost in the accolades is the play of PG Kyle Lowry. He seemed a little pouty after losing his best friend in the offseason but he has been amazing, essentially averaging 20/10 while making more than half of his shots, including three pointers.
Leonard and Lowry will steal headlines all season long but this team has amazing depth. In the middle they are getting major production from veterans Serge Ibaka and Jonas Valanciunas and players like Danny Green, Fred VanVleet, CJ Miles and more are just winning players.

Free Dallas Mavericks vs. Toronto Raptors NBA Prediction:
The Raptors have been in control of games almost all season and this should be another one. Their ATS record is only 3-2 though.
They have had all but one of their games at home and this is the biggest spread since opening night against Cleveland.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Mavericks +11.5
I think the Raptors might underestimate Dallas here and they have enough talent to exploit. The home team gets the win but the Mavs cover.
