Preview

The Dallas Mavericks and Miami Heat meet Tuesday in NBA action at the FTX Arena. These teams already met in November at Dallas where the Heat beat the Mavs 125-110 as -2.5 favorites.

DALLAS MAVERICKS

The Mavericks won 4 streak games and then lost in the second game of a two-game home set with the Clippers Saturday night. Doncic had 23 of his 45 points in the fourth quarter two nights after scoring 28 of his career-high 51 points in the first of Dallas' 112-105 win. Doncic had 15 rebounds and eight assists.

The team is averaging 106.3 points on 45.4 percent shooting and allowing 103.1 points on 45.4 percent shooting, the Mavs are ranked #2 in defense in the league.

MIAMI HEAT

Miami won their 5th game in a row when they beat the struggling Nets.  Bam Adebayo had 19 points and 14 rebounds, Duncan Robinson finished with 17 points and hit 6-of-10 3-pointers, Jimmy Butler and Tyler Herro each scored 13 and Lowry had 13 points and six assists for the Eastern Conference-leading Heat.

Miami is 19-6 vs. East at home and 23-12 overall. The winning streak coincides with Lowry's return.

The team is averaging 109.1 points on 46.2 percent shooting and allowing 104.4 points on 44.3 percent shooting, they are the #5 defense in the NBA.

BETTING TRENDS

Dallas are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games.

Dallas are 3-9-1 ATS in their last 13 games against Miami.

Miami are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games.

Miami are 5-1 SU in their last 6 games when playing at home against Dallas.

Prediction

Tyler Herro has been ruled out and Butler is questionable. The Heat are 8-3 without Herro this season, so it's not so bad. Both teams have play great defense buth the Mavericks struggle more offensively. The Heat are one of the best teams playing at home with a 19-6 record and they win by and average of 6.5 points at home. Give me the Heat as long as Jimmy Butler plays.

PICK: Heat -2.5 (-110)
