The Dallas Mavericks will be hosting the Orlando Magic on Saturday, January 15th.
The tip-off is set for 9:30 ET from American Airlines Center.
Dallas started off as a 12 point favorite and that number is now down to 11. The total has gone from 208.5 to 208.
The Magic have just been terrible this year. That pretty much sums it up.
This is a team that has lost ten games in a row and it does not look like that losing streak is going to end any time soon. It is an accomplishment if this team does not have some sort of losing streak going on.
When it comes to the worst teams in basketball, these guys are definitely in that group. The only team that may be worse than them is the Detroit Pistons, but even that is not a guarantee.
One thing that this roster has going for them is youth. Of course, they still have to develop as players, but it is not as if they are totally devoid of talent.
Orlando last played on Wednesday, where they lost to the Washington Wizards by a score of 112-106. They will be in for a bigger challenge on Saturday when they face off with this good Mavs team.
The offense actually played ok in their last game, but the defense just did not play well enough. It is a pretty bad look to let a Wizards team that did not have Bradley Beal on the court beat you.
The Mavericks have been decent this year, but I still feel they could be playing better. They just have not seemed to hit a rhythm yet, but they could still get better as the year goes on for sure.
At the moment, Dallas has a record of 22-19, which puts them in 5th place in the Western Conference. Even though they have a good seed, I do not consider them to be one of the better teams out West. If the playoffs started today, I do not think these guys would get all that far.
Luka Doncic is a great player on his own, but they still need more pieces around him. I just do not think the supporting cast they have around him has played at a high enough level and that is going to have to change if they want to be a contender.
This club got crushed by the Knicks on Wednesday by a score of 108-85. That was just a bad game all around and they are going to have to be much better when they face off with Orlando.
Look, the Knicks are a decent team, but there was no excuse for them to them by more than twenty points. Those are the sorts of losses that just make you scratch your head.

Orlando Magic vs. Dallas Mavericks NBA Analysis:
The Mavericks just got embarrassed by the Knicks in their last game, but I do feel they can be better in this one. They know the level of effort they gave in that game was not enough to win, so that area of their game has to improve.
Before either one of these teams can worry about this game, they have to focus on their games on Friday. Orlando will be in Charlotte and Dallas will be in Memphis.
If you are the Mavs, this is a game you really have got to have. If they are on their game, they should not make a game against one of the worst teams in hoops all that competitive.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Mavericks ATS
I look for Dallas to be much sharper in this game. They know they have to play at a higher level and I feel like they will against a very bad basketball team.
Yes, 11 points are high to lay, but I like it here. I can see the Mavs taking control of this game and not looking back.
