The Toronto Raptors have enjoyed their best start in seven seasons, racing out to a 3-0 start, but the schedule-makers have played a part in that. The team will face its toughest challenge yet Tuesday night with a trip south to face the Dallas Mavericks.
As for the Mavericks, they’re looking for their fourth consecutive victory in a home opener. For the Raptors, a win would give them their first 4-0 start to a season in franchise history. This game marks the start of a four-game road trip for the Raptors, who will play on back-to-back nights against the Mavericks and Oklahoma City Thunder.
Toronto’s wins thus far have come against the Indiana Pacers, Boston Celtics, and Milwaukee Bucks. Those three teams have played a total of nine games with just one total win between the three.
With Sunday’s 106-87 victory at home against the Milwaukee Bucks, the Raptors’ victory have come by an average margin of 12.0 points, as the team has shot 42.0 percent from beyond the arc in those contests. Center Jonas Valanciunas has begun to emerge, averaging 15.3 points and 11.0 rebounds. He had 19 points and eight boards against the Bucks.
Dallas won both meetings between these teams a year ago, limiting Raptors shooting guard DeMar DeRozan to 7-of-29 shooting, with just 18 total points in the two contests. Toronto point guard Kyle Lowry has hit on 13 of 47 shots and is averaging 13.0 points over the last three games in the series.
The Mavericks are coming off a 103-93 win over the Los Angeles Lakers. The team limited Kobe Bryant to 3 for 15 shooting on the night, holding the Lakers to 36.5 percent shooting as a team. Mavericks forward Dirk Nowitzki is shooting 55.3 percent from the floor on the young season.

Free NBA Prediction:
The Raptors will be in for some good things this season, but the long trip to Dallas to meet a Mavericks team ready to play its home opener just isn’t a good spot on the schedule for them. The team relies heavily on its backcourt for scoring, and those two standouts were smothered by the Mavericks in last season’s meetings.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Mavericks +1.5
The Mavericks may be in for a regression this season with some key pieces moving out during the offseason, but they’ve started out well and have the added motivation of playing their home opener here.
