Tuesday, December 4 finds the Portland Trail Blazers meeting up vs. the Dallas Mavericks for their first meeting of the 2018-19 regular season. Both squads last played Sunday with the Blazers losing to the Spurs and the Mavericks beating the LA Clippers.
Last season, the Trail Blazers took two of the three matches in the season series. The Blazers hold the all-time record having bested the Mavericks in 82 of their 153 matches.
Portland Trail Blazers
Four of five starters reached double-digit scoring versus the Spurs. Damian Lillard led the way with 37 while CJ McCollum (24), Al-Farouq Aminu (20) and Jusuf Nurkic (16) each chipped in.
After jumping out to a 10-3 season start the Trail Blazers have progressively slipped losing seven of their last 10 games. When the Blazers were winning they ranked among the top 5 defenses, but have fallen to 21st overall.
Evan Turner (Achilles) and Caleb Swanigan (personal) missed the game Sunday and are both questionable Tuesday against the Mavericks.
Despite not having their talented rookie the Mavericks beat what was the top ranked Western team the LA Clippers on Sunday.
In the victory over the Clippers Harrison Barnes led the way with 30 points but four others scored in double-digits. That quartet featured J.J. Barea (24), DeAndre Jordan (16), Wesley Matthews and Dorian Finney-Smith (10).
Dennis Smith Jr. sealed the win with his clutch time efforts. First he blocked Tobias Harris, then grabbed the rebound and nailed both free throws to put the game out of reach.
In the reverse situation of the Blazers, the Mavericks began the season losing eight of their first 11 games. Since then Dallas has won eight of their last 10 games.
Most impressively, those eight wins took down some of the Leagues top teams such as the Thunder, Jazz, Warriors, Grizzlies, Celtics and Rockets.
Luka Doncic (hip strain) missed the game versus the Clippers Sunday and it is unknown if he’ll play Tuesday. Maxi Kleber (knee soreness) hasn’t played the past two games and it is questionable versus the Trail Blazers.
Dirk Nowitzki (ankle) continues to rehab and is expected back mid December.

Free Portland Trail Blazers vs. Dallas Mavericks NBA Prediction:
The Mavericks boast a 9-2 record at home but the Blazers are desperate for a win. Dallas is winning via defense particularly from the perimeter where Portland will keep them busy. Through the last 10 games the Mavericks rank second on perimeter defense.
