The NBA season kicks off on Tuesday night with a pair of exciting games, headlined by the Lakers and Clippers to close the night.
Unfortunately for Wizards and Mavericks fans they have to wait for their NBA season to kick off like most of the league.
In the matchup between the two teams the Mavericks are favored by 8.5 points against Washington with the total set at 223.5 points.
The Washington Wizards have a lot of question marks heading into the 2019-20 season. Washington is expected to struggle despite being in a shaky Eastern Conference. The absence of John Wall (achilles) will be a primary reason for their struggles.
Wall is expected to miss at least the first few weeks of the season. In the offseason the Wizards made a few moves. They lost Dwight Howard, Jeff Green, Tomas Satoransky, and Bobby Portis.
The Wizards replaced those players with Isaiah Thomas, Ish Smith, Moritz Wagner, Isaac Bonga, C.J. Miles, and rookie Rui Hachimura.
Isaiah Thomas is expected to have a larger role than he did last season in Denver where he missed most of the season. Smith will likely start at point guard with Thomas playing the sixth man role.
Washington will still compete many nights thanks to star Bradley Beal. Beal is coming off a season in which he averaged 25.6 points and 5.5 assists.
The player to keep an eye on is Rui Hachimura. The rookie big from Gonzaga can do a bit of everything. His game is reminiscent of Paul Millsap. He can shoot it, make plays, and go to the basket.
He is also versatile, and can defend both forward spots. With major minutes likely heading his way he is a dark-horse pick for Rookie of the Year.
The Dallas Mavericks are not being talked about enough. That’s because they are in a conference featuring the likes of both LA teams, Utah, Denver, Houston, and Golden State.
I didn’t even mention San Antonio and Portland who always make the playoffs.
Dallas has a shot at sneaking in the playoffs thanks to their magnificent duo of Luka Doncic and Kristaps Porzingis. Doncic is coming off one of the best rookie seasons in recent memory. Doncic averaged 21.2 points, 7.8 rebounds, and 6 assists.
The scary thing is that he got better as the season went on.
Porzingis on the other hand was an All-Star in 2018 before missing last season with an ACL injury.
The question in Dallas is whether the supporting cast of Tim Hardaway Jr, Delon Wright, Jalen Brunson, Seth Curry, J.J. Barea, and Dwight Powell will be enough.
It will be strange not seeing Dirk Nowitzki in Dallas.

Free Washington Wizards vs. Dallas Mavericks NBA Prediction:
The Dallas Mavericks are clearly the better team especially with Wall out for the Wizards. I expect Doncic and Porzingis to show out early here as they will be dynamic.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Mavericks -8.5/Under 223.5
Beal may have 35 points tonight but he won’t have enough help. Take the Mavericks in a convincing victory. The under is also a tempting play as the Wizards shouldn’t go for more than 100 here.
