NBA Preview and Free Pick
Arguably the best of the East, Milwaukee Bucks, square off against trade deadline sellers, the Dallas Mavericks at American Airlines Center in the Lone Star State tonight. Tipoff is slated for 8:30 p.m. ET in a game that plays out as a runaway victory for Milwaukee
The Bucks (40-13) are winners of five straight and are the first Association franchise to reach the 40 win mark this season. They team’s front office bolstered their bench with the addition of forward Nikola Mirotic from the New Orleans Pelicans. Mirotic adds nearly 20 points per game to the already explosive offense of the Bucks. The former Pelican averaged 16.7 points and 8.3 rebounds in 32 games for New Orleans this season. Note that Mirotic is currently unavailable for tonight’s game as he is recovering from a calf injury.
The Mavs cleaned house this past week. They sent four starters packing and are preparing for next season with the additions of forwards Justin Jackson and Zach Randolph. Dallas moved their most reliable offensive piece to Sacramento, Harrison Barnes, for the aforementioned frontcourt tandem.
Dallas no longer has Dennis Smith Jr., shooting guard Wesley Matthews and center DeAndre Jordan, as well. The only remaining 2018-19 Dallas starter is a rookie, Luka Doncic. The Mavs current roster has no answer for Bucks’ Giannis Antetokounmpo who scored 31 points and grabbed 15 rebounds in the first meeting between the two franchises.
