On Friday March 16 the Dallas Mavericks arrive at the Air Canada Centre to face their host the Toronto Raptors. Dallas beat the Knicks in their last game and have the advantage of two full days rest.
Toronto plays their third game in four nights after a hard fought win over Indiana on the front side of a back-to-back set for their 10th consecutive win and eighth consecutive win on road.
The last two seasons the Raptors swept the Mavericks, but lost their opening match in Dallas earlier this year. The Mavericks hold the all-time record having bested the Raptors in 25 of their 42 matches.
The Mavericks season hasn’t gone exactly as planned with copious injuries and in house issues dominating the headlines.
Despite the guarantee of heading to the lottery Dirk Nowitzki continues to push his squad to be their best. In his last ten games the future hall of famer is averaging 41.3 percent from the perimeter.
Nowitzki is shooting a career best 42.6 percent from the perimeter (career: 38.4 percent).
Earlier this season Nowitzki moved into sixth for all-time points scored (31,419) and needs just 329 points to surpass Wilt Chamberlain into fifth.
Rookie Dennis Smith Jr. is another bright spot for the Mavericks who’ve had little to draw from positively this season.
Salah Mejri (hamstring) missed the last two games and is questionable Friday. Wesley Matthews (leg fracture) joins Seth Curry (tibia) as likely to miss the remainder of the season.
The Raptors completed their entire opposite coast games mid January, but the current stretch is full of challenges like back to back sets.
Toronto looks for their eleventh straight win Friday after the win in Indiana.
DeMar DeRozan has looked a little fatigued since his huge effort in Detroit. Fortunately, the deepest squad in the NBA can afford for their stars to have off nights because the reserves simply pick up the slack.
Thus was the case in both games versus the Knicks and Nets earlier this week.
Norman Powell sprained his ankle in an optional practice and is in a walking boot. Rookie OG Anunoby missed seven consecutive games, but was back in lineup vs. Pacers.
