Prediction

The Hawks have won 3 games in a row and 4 of their last 5 including their last 3 games on the road. Trae Young has been on fire scoring 28 points per game but they will face a Mavericks team who hasn't lost more than 6 games at home this season. The Mavs are coming from a tough road trip where they lost 4 of 5 but they'll be well rested for this game and mostly healthy. Luka Doncic missed the last game and is considered probable but everything points that he will play. Dallas is a different team at home and will take care of business on this one.
