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.
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)
