Prediction

The Cavaliers have been pretty good this season and are ranking #1 in defense in the league allowing 104 points per game. The Mavericks have bee up and down this season and have one of the worst records ATS but they're a very tough team to beat at home. They're also ranking #5 in defense allowing 109 points per game. Both teams will be full healthy for this game so expect a tight game but I'm going with the better team at this moment. Take the Cavs.
