The Golden State Warriors take on the Dallas Mavericks this Thursday, February 4 in the clubs’ first meeting of the season.
Last season, the squads played three times with Dallas winning all three contests. The Mavericks hold the all-time record having won 84 matches of the 162 played.
Golden State Warriors
Just as the Warriors seemed to be finding a groove their frontcourt took a double hit. Rookie James Wiseman sprained his wrist on the weekend against the Pistons. Then Kevon Looney sprained his ankle forcing him from the game versus the Celtics.
Although the Warriors fought a losing battle (111-107) the depleted frontcourt will be an issue over these next four games.
While the Celtics have the trio of Tristan Thompson, Daniel Theis, and Robert Williams they aren’t in the same wheelhouse as the frontcourts of the Mavericks or Spurs who have talent and depth.
Golden State faces the Mavs and Spurs twice each over the next six days so Kerr will have to get very creative with small-ball lineups.
In the loss, Curry was on fire producing a full stat line of 38 points, 11 rebounds, eight assists, three steals, and hit seven of his 11 triples.
Little used Juan Toscano-Anderson seized his opportunity with extended minutes to score 16 points while wings Andrew Wiggins (15), Kelly Oubre Jr. (12), and Kent Bazemore (10) were the other double-figure scorers.
Kevon Looney (ankle) out until February 19th. James Wiseman (wrist) out until February 11th. Alen Smailagic had surgery to repair a torn meniscus in his right knee and his timeline for return is February 15th.
Marquese Chriss suffered a fibular fracture to his ankle while Klay Thompson tore his right Achilles tendon. Both are out for the season.
The Mavericks finally got back some of their depleted roster who’ve been out due to the health and safety protocols but they entered the front side of a back-to-back on a six-game losing streak.
Worse, their superstar was calling out his team’s effort and the team had regressed to last season’s bad habit of losing games in the clutch.
Dallas arrived in Atlanta to play the front side of a back-to-back knowing they needed to stop the bleeding and they delivered with a 122-116 victory.
In the victory over the Hawks, Luka Doncic ( 27 points, 8 rebounds, 14 assists, 2 steals, block) and Kristaps Prozingis (24 points, 11 rebounds) delivered double-doubles.
Tim Hardaway Jr. (22), Josh Richardson (14), Dorian Finney-Smith (13), and Jalen Brunson (11) were the other double-figure contributors.
NBA Betting Trends:
- The teams are 5-5 in the teams last 10 head to head meetings
- Mavericks are 8-2 ATS in the last 10 head to head meetings
- Over/Under is 7-3 in the teams last 10 head to head meetings
Free Golden State Warriors vs. Dallas Mavericks NBA Prediction:
Dallas needs to build upon the victory and have a great opportunity with a seven-game homestand. Those opponents include the frontcourt depleted Warriors (twice), the Wolves, Hawks, Pelicans, Blazers (also injury-riddled), and Pistons.
Quite frankly, with their core finally healthy and back (especially x-factor Maxi Kleber) it’s conceivable Dallas could go on a major winning streak.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Mavericks ATS
The Dubs have the rest advantage but with their injury issues and the length of the Mavs, the advantage should lean toward Dallas.
