The TD Garden in Boston will host an exciting matchup between the Dallas Mavericks (34-25) and the Boston Celtics (46-12) on March 1, 2024, at 5:30 p.m. EST. In this preview, we'll analyze team statistics, player performances, injury updates, and a final prediction.

With Doncic listed as questionable, there's still a chance for him to play, which could significantly impact the Mavericks' performance and their ability to cover the spread.

 

Team Statistics

Dallas Mavericks

The Mavericks, led by L. Doncic, have been competitive throughout the season and possess the offensive firepower to keep up with strong opponents like the Celtics.

Boston Celtics

The Celtics, sitting atop the Eastern Conference, have been dominant at home but could face a tougher challenge against the Mavericks, especially if Doncic suits up for the game.

 

Injuries and Player Matchups

Luka Doncic is listed as questionable for the Mavericks, which adds uncertainty to their lineup and rotation. His potential absence could impact the spread and the outcome of the game.

The Celtics have no injured players, providing them with a full roster for this crucial matchup.

 

Recent Performances

Dallas Mavericks

The Mavericks are coming off a solid victory against the Toronto Raptors, demonstrating their ability to compete against quality opponents.

Boston Celtics

The Celtics have been on a winning streak, but they could face a tougher challenge against the Mavericks, especially if Doncic is available to play.

 

Prediction

With Luka Doncic's availability uncertain, there's still a chance for him to play, which could significantly impact the Mavericks' performance and their ability to cover the +9.5 points spread against the Boston Celtics. If Doncic is cleared to play, the Mavericks have a strong chance of keeping the game competitive and potentially covering the spread.

Even without Doncic, the Mavericks have shown resilience and depth, capable of competing against top teams in the league. Therefore, we predict that the Mavericks will cover the +9.5 points spread, making them a favorable pick for this game.

Pick: Mavericks +9.5 Points
