Sunday, January 27 the Toronto Raptors face the Dallas Mavericks for the second time and final time this season. Both teams played on Friday with the Raptors losing to the Rockets while the Mavericks defeated the Pistons.
Last season, the clubs split their two game series while the Raptors won the initial meeting this year. The Mavericks hold the all-time record having bested the Raptors in 25 of their 44 matches.
The Raptors have played 51 games, 20 versus the opposite coast including 11 on the road and 10 back to back sets already. This is perhaps why the Raptors have looked a bit battle worn recently.
Granted the squad has navigated several injuries and still won’t have Jonas Valanciunas back until mid February.
The heavy usage has taken a toll and the numerous injuries have made life difficult for head coach Nick Nurse who hasn’t been able to get his full roster on the court for an extended period this entire season.
After this game, the Raptors will have 30 games left to play with just three on the opposite coast. This will afford the team time to practice and tweak their system as they head toward the postseason.
In the loss to the Rockets, five players scored in double digits with Kawhi Leonard’s 32 points leading his team while Pascal Siakam and Danny Green each scored 22.
Toronto’s defense was the issue however as they lacked aggression and focus.
Home and road variances continue to be the deciding factor for the Mavericks. At home, they boast an 18-6 record, but on the road, the Mavericks are 4-20. If Dallas could only find a way to get their road wins closer to 50 percent they would be comfortably seeded.
Dennis Smith Jr. rejoined his squad with the brain trust indicating everything is fine, but don’t be surprised if this is just a smoke screen for the Mavericks as they continue to look for a trade partner.
Four players scored in double digits in the win over the Pistons. Luka Doncic led the way with 32 points, 8 rebounds, and 8 assists.
J.J. Barea is lost for the season due to a ruptured Achilles tendon.

Free Toronto Raptors vs. Dallas Mavericks NBA Prediction:
Without serial Raptors killer (J.J. Barea) Toronto has a better shot at winning but they’ll need a better defensive effort across the board.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Raptors -4
The Raptors have only lost three in a row once all season and won’t be keen to repeat that dynamic but they’ll need to deliver 48 minutes of defense to prevent it.
