The Magic have a lot of work to do in the East as they head into Dallas on Tuesday night.
Orlando has fallen off a lot, as they now sit 4.0 games out of a playoff spot.
On the Dallas side of things, they sit in 6th in the West, but have a lot of work to do if they hope to keep pace as the entire conference is crowded together.
Orlando did start this season making the entire league take notice.
However, they have really tapered off and now have a lot of work to do to get back into the race. They currently sit in 11th place, 5.0 back of the Bulls.
Orlando has gone 5-4 over their past 9 games, which is a major positive for them. They’ve seen a lot of multiple game losing streaks, especially after the calendar turned to 2016.
Orlando comes in off one of their best offensive performances of the season, where they scored 130 points in a 14 point win over Phili. Orlando was 10 of 16 from behind the arc and shot 57% from the field.
It will take performances like that one to really get the Magic back in the race.
Dallas has a lot of work to do if they hope to climb up the standings, but don’t have much room for error in terms of teams below them.
The Mavericks are just 3.5 games clear of holding onto a playoff spot, making games like this at home that much more important. Dallas was one of those 5 victims the Magic took down as they erased a 9 point 4th quarter deficit and eventually won the game in overtime.
It’s been Chandler Parsons who’s stepped up big time lately for the Mavs. He’s put in 24 or more points in 5 of the last 7 games for Dallas and has averaged 28 points over the past 2 games. Parsons will be a crucial part for this Mavericks team down the stretch and in the playoffs, should they make it, as he is finally at 100% health wise.
Parsons battled a knee injury earlier in the season that saw him miss time and really cut his minutes when playing.
Dallas brings in an 18-12 SU record at home.

Free Orlando Magic vs. Dallas Mavericks NBA Prediction:
The Mavericks have been a very solid home team this season and have a bit of revenge on their mind from last time.
They should have beaten Orlando, but coughed up a 4th quarter lead and saw Orlando tie things up late.
Look for Dallas to try and control the paint in this one, and that includes Parsons, who can hit from the outside and has some solid moves in the post.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Mavs ATS.
