Two Western Conference teams coming off victories in their previous games are clashing today, when the Dallas Mavericks (8-5), looking to extend their current small winning streak, are hosting last season’s finalists Golden State Warriors (3-12), who are struggling this season and are sitting on the bottom of the conference.

They are led in scoring by Luka Doncic with 29.5 ppg, adding team highs both in boards with 10.7 and in dimes made with 9.3 per game.

Golden State Warriors have a 3-12 record (6-9 against the spread) so far this season and are sitting in the last place of the West. In their last game they snapped a seven-game losing streak by winning on the road against the Grizzlies with a 114-95 score, beating the odds. They are led in scoring by D’Angelo Russell with 24.3 ppg, adding a team high 6.7 dimes per game. He is followed by Steph Curry with 20.2 ppg, 5 boards and 6.5 dimes per game but both of them are out with injuries.
In their four meetings last season both teams were tied 2-2 wins and were 1-1 in Dallas. Mavericks are 4-3 at home, while the Warriors are 2-6 on the road. Mavericks are better both offensively, scoring 114.1 ppg to Warriors’ 109.1 and defensively, allowing 110.8 ppg to Warriors’ 117.4. They also have better percentages both in field goals (45.3% to 43.5%) and in 3-pointers (33.6% to 31.4%). Warriors on the other hand are better in dimes made (24.5 to 24.1), while Mavericks are better both in turnovers committed (13.1 to 14.5) and in boards grabbed (47.5 to 44.7). Bookmakers give the Mavericks a -13.5 spread but don’t expect them to beat the odds as the guests will surely force a closer game than that.
