Dallas Mavericks vs. New Orleans Pelicans

Where: Smoothie King Center

When: Tuesday, December 3, 2019, 7:30 pm ET

We have an NBA Southwest matchup to consider when the Dallas Mavericks meet the New Orleans Pelicans for game two of their four-game season series. Dallas is 13-6 this season and is tied for first place for the division lead with the Houston Rockets. New Orleans is 6-14 this season and currently in the last place in the division standings.

Mavericks Stun Lakers

Dallas defeated New Orleans in their first meeting this season by a score of 123-116, and they enter this matchup with a two-game winning streak and has won four of its last five games. The Mavericks snapped a Los Angeles Lakers ten-game winning streak with a 114-100 road win, and once again, Mavs guard/forward Luka Doncic led the way with 27 points, ten assists alongside nine rebounds.

Doncic is averaging 30.6 points, 9.9 rebounds along with a team-high 9.6 assists. Kristaps Porzingis is averaging 17.4 points with 9.2 rebounds and leads the Mavs with two blocked shots per game. Tim Hardaway Jr scores and average of 12.7 points per game and Dorian Finney-Smith is averaging 8.7 points with 5.2 rebounds per game this season.

Pelicans Five Game Losing Streak

The Pelicans are having a difficult time this season, but that has more to do with injuries than talent. Rookie Zion Williamson has missed the entire season with an injury without a timetable for return, and several other key players have lost time this season. They don’t have one player on its roster having appeared in every New Orleans game this season. Derrick Favors missed Sunday night's game with the Oklahoma City Thunder with a personal issue and is listed as questionable for Tuesday.

Brandon Ingram leads New Orleans with 25.5 points per game alongside a team-high 7.4 rebounds. Jrue Holiday scores an average of 19.4 points, five caroms, and a team-high 7.1 assists. JJ Redick averages 15.2 points with 3.1 rebounds per night, and Josh Hart averages a dozen points per game alongside six rebounds a night for New Orleans this season.

The Bottom Line What to bet on this game.

Full-Game Side Bet
Rating:

Dallas should win this game on Tuesday night. They have the inside game, the outside game, and they have Doncic, who is probably playing better than anyone else in the NBA right now. New Orleans doesn’t know from one day to the next who will be healthy enough to play, and that is their biggest problem. The Pelicans have lost five consecutive games, and Tuesday night will be number six. I am going with the Mavericks in this game.

Prediction: Mavericks

Full-Game Total Pick
Rating:

The Pelicans play at one of the fastest paces in the NBA, and Dallas is about league average so that we can expect an up-tempo game with plenty of scoring. Neither team is what we would call defensive-minded, and my math has this one at 210 points. I think that might be a bit low, and I will play the Over at 210 points and below in this contest.
