Overview:

The Dallas Mavericks snapped 2 game losing streak with a 109-109 overtime home win versus the Knicks on Wednesday. Dallas is 4-3 on the road this season. They are 5-2 versus Eastern Conference opponents.

The Toronto Raptors have won 6 straight and sit atop the Eastern Conference standings at 13-2. Toronto is 9-1 at home this season. They are 4-0 versus Western Conference opponents.

Toronto was victorious in both meetings with Dallas last season. After tonight they play one more time this season, Tuesday February 24th at Dallas.

Prediction:

The Raptors are red-hot right now but I think they eventually have to drop one just to come back to Earth a little bit. It’s a battle of the 2 top scoring teams in the league tonight. Take the Mavericks +4 (1.90) (Bet365)
