East meets West this Wednesday as the Dallas Mavericks travel to the nation’s capital to take on the Washington Wizards. Both teams are coming off of losses but have been impressive overall in the last couple of weeks.
The Mavericks have won 12 of the last 13 meetings, including a 113-105 win on January 3rd.
The Mavericks have lost two straight following a four-game win streak. They were demolished on the road against the Raptors on Monday, losing 100-78. Dallas is currently in 11th place in the Western Conference.
The Wizards saw their five-game win streak snapped on Monday, falling 119-104 at Milwaukee. They are currently in 3rd place in the East but only 2.5 games behind the 1st place Cavaliers and a half game behind the 2nd place Celtics.
The Mavericks were closing in on the Denver Nuggets for the final playoff spot earlier this month. They had won four in a row and looked to be making a real push for the playoffs.
However, the streak was snapped on Saturday against the Phoenix Suns, and they were destroyed by the Raptors in the next game.
Dallas has struggled to put points on the board this year. They average only 98.1 points per game which is dead last in the NBA. They also rank last in rebounding with 38.6 and 26th in assists with 20.3 per contest.
The defense has anchored them– they allow only 99.8 points per game which is 3rd in the league.
Harrison Barnes leads the way for the Mavericks with 20 points and 5.1 rebounds per game. J.J. Barea adds 11.2 points and 4.9 assists, and he is expected to return for this game.
Dirk Nowitzki and Wesley Matthews both contribute over 14 points per game.
The Wizards continue to be one of the streakiest teams in the NBA. They were the hottest team in the NBA right before the All Star break but struggled mightily after coming back from the break.
They righted the ship and won five straight over the last two weeks, all of which were on the road. Unfortunately, the six-game road trip ended with a loss, which might be a bad sign for such a streaky team.
Washington has the 5th ranked scoring offense in the league, averaging 109.1 points per game. They rank 19th in rebounding with 43.1 and 7th in assists with 23.8 per contest.
Defense has been a problem for the Wizards, and they allow 106.8 points per game which is 22nd in the NBA.
Bradley Beal leads the Wizards in scoring with 23.2 points per game. John Wall is second in scoring with 23.1 points per game, and he adds 10.7 assists and 1.95 steals per contest.
Otto Porter Jr. and Markieff Morris both contribute over 14 points and 6.6 rebounds per game.

Free Dallas Mavericks vs. Washington Wizards NBA Prediction:
Dallas looked as though they could compete for the playoffs earlier this month, but those hopes seem to have been short-lived.
Washington may be one of the streakiest teams in basketball, which would mean the loss to the Bucks is a bad sign.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Wizards
However, they are clearly the better team and should be ready to bounce back in their first home game since March 5th.
