Prediction

The Trail Blazers have lost 5 of their last 6 games but they just destroyed the Mavericks last night at home and will have plenty advantage again as the Mavs will be without Luka Doncic and Hardaway. The Mavericks have been struggling on the road this season and are 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games away from home. They're 0-4 without Luka this season so I gotta go with the Blazers.
