The Golden State Warriors wrap up a five game road trip at the American Airlines Center against the Dallas Mavericks on Wednesday night.
The Mavericks are coming off a 112-108 road loss against the Memphis Grizzlies on Monday night. The Warriors beat the Houston Rockets 121-108, making them 1-3 on the trip.
This will be the third and final game in a regular season series that is tied 1-1 after Golden State won 119-113 in Dallas on February 4th. Tip-off is scheduled for 7:30 PM EST/4:30 PST as the first game of an ESPN Wednesday night doubleheader.
The Golden State Warriors move a game above .500 at 37-36 after beating Houston on Monday. The Warriors dominated the interior with a 48-41 rebounding advantage.
Steph Curry led all scorers with 30 points along with 7 rebounds and 5 assists. Klay Thompson was right behind him with 29 points and 7 rebounds while Kevon Looney recorded an 11 point, 10 rebound double-double.
The Warriors currently occupy the 6th seed in the Western Conference, 11.5 games behind the first place Nuggets and a half game from dipping into the play-in tournament. Golden State ranks 2nd in scoring with 118.3 points a game on 47.6% shooting.
They sit at 18th in defensive rating but 25th in defensive scoring with 117.9 points allowed per game. Draymond Green (wrist) and Kevon Looney (back) are both listed as probable for this contest.
The Dallas Mavericks fell back to .500 at 36-36 after losing in Memphis on Monday. The Grizzlies dominated the glass with a 50-37 rebounding edge. Kyrie Irving led his team in scoring with 28 points on 10-24 from the field.
Christian Wood and Jaden Hardy each scored 20 points off the bench. The Mavs currently occupy the 8th seed in the Western Conference, only a half game behind the Warriors and a game away from missing the play-in tournament altogether.
Dallas ranks 17th in scoring with 113.7 points a game on 47.4% from the floor. They sit at 23rd in defensive rating and 15th in defensive scoring with 113.2 points allowed per game.
Luka Doncic (thigh), Kyrie Irving (foot), Tim Hardaway Jr (illness) and Markieff Morris (knee) are all listed as questionable for this contest.
This game is a pick’em with the total set at 236. This is a critical matchup based on how close these teams are in the standings.
Last time these teams met they combined for 232 points in a game that Luka Doncic or Kyrie Irving both missed. Both are questionable, but at least one if not both will play. These teams rank 7th & 15th in adjusted offensive rating.
The Warriors rank 1st in terms of pace, meaning we can expect them to force Dallas to work at a quicker pace. Both teams allow opponents to shoot above 35% from three-point land and both are deadly from beyond the arc.
The history between these teams shows plenty of high scoring games as 10 of the last 12 head-to-head meetings have exceeded the total.
Prediction: Over 236 -110 Draftkings

Andy Lang has lived in Indianapolis his whole life, and like most people from the Hoosier State, he became fascinated with motor sports. That interest in motor sports turned into a desire to make money off the sport through fantasy contests and sports betting. Like most, he took his lumps when he first got started, but now he is one of the most respected NASCAR bettors in the industry. Andy has expanded that sports betting experience to become profitable in a number of other sports, transforming this interest from a side hobby to a major source of income.
