The Miami Heat are the surprise team in the NBA this season. They travel to face the Dallas Mavericks, at the American Airlines Center. The Heat are seven games over .500, and 15-11 on the road this season. The Dallas Mavericks are completely opposite. Dallas is a team who should be ranked 25th-30th overall this year.
The last time the Heat and Mavericks took the court against each other, was December 22nd. The Heat won at home, 113-101. Expect this matchup to have similar results like the first game.
The Miami Heat are one of the more suprising teams in the Eastern conference right now. Miami is currently a playoff team in the East, and could make a case to play in the conference Semis this season. Goran Dragic leads the Heat in scoring this season with 17.1 points per game.
With Dragic playing close to an All Star level, and Hassan Whiteside playing dominant in the paint, the Heat are a good team. A lot of the Heat’s success has to come from coach Eric Spoelstra. Spoelstra has a group of guys believing they are better than their talent indicates.
The Heat recently beat the Hornets, 95-91. Miami shot decent from the floor, shooting 44.7 percent. Miami really struggled to score from three, shooting 20.8 percent from downtown. It didn’t help Miami turned the ball over 14 times, but still managed a four point win.
The Heat shot 64 percent from the floor and 64 percent from three point land the first time the teams met this year. If the Heat shoot it over 60 percent from the field again, Miami deserves to win. Look for a big game from Hassan Whiteside on the glass.
Miami is one of the best defensive teams in the NBA this year, allowing 101.3 points per game this season. Good enough for 3rd in the NBA in points allowed this year.
The Dallas Mavericks are below average this season. They are currently 16-34 on the year. Dallas probably won’t be able to make the playoffs this year, so it looks to me like Dallas is tanking. At least when they are bad, the team puts out an effort to win. The Mavericks recently took a tough road loss to the Nuggets, 91-89.
Aside from the recent loss to Denver, the Mavericks have dropped six of their last seven games. Including trying to snap a three game losing streak. Dallas issues have been their roster this year. The team does not have the talent to be a top eight team in the West right now. Harrison Barnes leads the Mavericks in scoring this year with 18.4 points per game.
On the defensive side of the court, the Mavericks are allowing 103.9 points per game this season. Ranking the Mavericks a surprising 10th in the NBA in points allowed this season. The Mavericks are going to need a good defensive effort at home in order to win this one.

Free Miami Heat vs. Dallas Mavericks NBA Prediction:
The Heat are the more talented team this season, and have a winning road record this year. If Hassan Whiteside can establish a scoring presence in the paint, the Heat will have no issues.
The Mavericks are going to have to play better defense this time against Miami. If the Mavericks can stop Miami from shooting over 60 percent from three, Dallas has a shot.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Heat -2
I don’t trust Dallas. Take Miami for the road win. Dragic and Whiteside will have big games in Dallas.
