The Dallas Maverick were able to beat the New Orleans Pelicans in their last outing, outplaying them 96-83, while out in the Eastern Conference the Miami Heat also came away victors, beating the Indiana Pacers 113-95.
With the win Miami makes it three victories in a row, however this might be the most impressive due to the way in which they won.
Miami totally outplayed Indiana in the final frame, and that played a huge part in the final outcome. The Heat outscored Indiana 30-16 in the fourth quarter, and that ultimately allowed them to pull away ahead.
Yet, their team defense was also a positive to take away.
They forced Jeff Teague and Monta Ellis into taking tough shots all game. And because of that the team was able to make it three wins in a row.
Teague shot just 5 of 16 from the field, while Monta Ellis wasn’t any better hitting just 3 of his 12 shot attempts. But next outing they’re going to have a bigger test on their hands stopping Harrison Barnes and Dirk Nowitzki.
The Heat aren’t a great interior defensive team, so they’re going to need everybody contributing in order for them to stop both of those two in the low post.
The Dallas Mavericks were able to beat the New Orleans Pelicans in their last outing, and defense played a huge part in that.
Dallas just refused to let anyone else get going on the Pelicans besides Anthony Davis. The Pelicans star poured in 39 points and 14 rebounds.
However, besides him nobody else could really get going. DeMarcus Cousins shot just 3 of 9, while Jrue Holiday was just as bad going 5 of 17 from the field. Now a lot of that had to do with New Orleans, but Dallas also played a huge part in that.
So next outing against Miami they need to do the same thing if they hope to win again. The Heat tend to rely on Goran Dragic and Dion Waiters to do a ton on the offensive end of the floor.
So because of that, if Dallas can shut both of them down, they’ll essentially shut down the whole entire Miami Heat offense.
