Friday, November 8 finds the young lottery bound New York Knicks squad taking on the young rising Dallas Mavericks as the teams tip off at American Airlines Center.
Last season, the squads split their two meetings. The Mavericks hold the all-time record having bested the Knicks in 41 of their 76 matches.
New York Knicks
This Knicks squad shows glimpses of potential despite having the league’s worst record. They lone victory came against the Bulls on the road.
The fans in the Mecca aren’t happy with their team’s poor record and have turned on Head Coach David Fizdale who they unceremoniously booed in the loss to the undermanned Pistons.
This might also have something to do with Fizdale playing rookie star RJ Barrett in a rout the game prior and then telling reporters he’s sick of the load management conversation noting RJ is only 19.
As per Barrett, he leads the team with 17.9 points although Julius Randle (20) held that distinction in the match against Detroit. Marcus Morris (18), Barrett (15), Kevin Knox (14), and Frank Ntilikina (11) were the other double-digit contributors.
Mitchell Robinson (concussion) missed the last game and won’t suit up as he progresses through the concussion protocol program. Elfrid Payton (strained right hamstring) missed the last four games and won’t be dressed for this match.
Dennis Smith Jr. (personal) has missed the last five games and will remain out. Reggie Bullock (surgery for a cervical disc herniation) is expected back at the end of the month.
The Mavericks got lucky in their last outing likely looking at the Orlando Magic record instead of their talent. In the end, they squeaked out a one-point victory.
As per usual Luka Doncic led the way with 27 points, seven assists, and seven rebounds. He was joined by six of his teammates who also collected double-digit efforts.
Among those six were Maxi Kleber (14), Tim Hardaway Jr. (13), Dwight Powell (12), Justin Jackson (11), Kristaps Prozingis (10) and in his season debut JJ Barea scored 11 points.
Porzingis got out to a hot start when the season began but has struggled in the last three games. He’s frustrated with his play but needs to have patience after almost two seasons off the court.
With JJ Barea’s return to the lineup, the Mavericks are now fully healthy.

In the wild West winning the games you should is imperative, especially for a club like the Mavericks who have designs of making the postseason.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Mavericks ATS
Although the Knicks will be anxious to make a mark they simply don’t have the talent or firing power to beat the Mavericks. And, 11 points is a large margin, but Dallas playing down to their competition two games in a row seems unlikely.
