Mavericks vs Nuggets


  • Preview

The Dallas Mavericks are taking on the Denver Nuggets. The Dallas Mavericks are 3-4 to start the year. The Denver Nuggets are also 3-4 but are coming off of 2 victories.

The Mavericks have underwhelmed so far but without Kristaps some of it is forgivable. The Mavs have been improving by being more consistent. Luka is coming off a triple-double performance to glide his team past the Rockets. Dallas has given up 105.1 points per game.

The Nuggets offensively can be an issue for anyone with the duo of Jamal Murray and Jokic. Their issue so far has been that their defense has struggled to stop opposing teams. Denver's defense has been better as of late but it is a small sample size, so it remains to be seen if this team has really flipped the switch.

Luka is the key to the Mavs offense but even so, his supporting cast can't be trusted. The winner of this one will be the team that has grown the most in a short span as both of these teams have serious flaws. The Nuggets are coming off of a series against the Timberwolves so it could end up being that defense hasn't actually improved as much as originally thought so I'm just gonna take the points in this one. I also like the Under as the Nuggets offense will be slowed by Dallas's D and if Denver's defense has actually improved that'll be an additional bonus.
