There is still a lot of basketball to play, but if the season ended today the Mavs would be in the playoffs and the Kings would not.
Dallas has won 3 in a row and while it is a long shot that they would finish in the top 4 they should be in the post-season barring a late season collapse. In their last game the Mavs beat the Orlando Magic 121-108.
The Kings are still in the post-season picture, but they have not been playing well as of late. They have lost by double digits in their last three games playing the top teams in the West.
The Sacto offense has been solid all season, but the reason they are on the outside looking in is their defense, which only ranks 30th in the league in opponents’ points allowed.
DeMarcus Cousins has been a beast this season for the Kings leading the team in scoring and rebounding. He and Rudy Gay, who are combining to average more than 45 ppg, lead the Kings and will be a handful for the Mavs’ defense.
This is the 3rd match up of the season between these two Western Conference teams and the Kings and Mavs have both won at home.
The Mavs have won 3 in a row and 4 of their last 5 games and all were at home. Also of the 4 wins none came against teams that are currently in the top 8 of their respective conference.
Still, Dallas ranks a solid 12th in points per game (102.5 ppg) and in their last 3 games they have scored at least 121 points every time.
The Mavs are 19-12 at home this season.
Dallas has 4 players that are averaging in double figures led by the ageless Dirk Nowitzki. However, while scoring a combined 29 points in his last 2 games he has gotten a lot of help and the Mavs bench has been legit as of late.
One of the key match ups in this game will be between a couple of PG’s, who have reenergized their careers this season in Sacto’s Rajon Rondo and Dallas’ Deron Williams.
The Kings’ defense has really struggled all season, which is not good facing a Mavericks’ team that has scored 4 of the highest points totals of the season in 4 of their last 5 games.
