Heat @ Mavericks
Miami closes out their three-game road trip with a visit to American Airlines Center. They unleashed a beating in New Orleans — 124-98 –, and they hope to continue that success here.
Dallas will look to turn things around after dropping three straight games. The Mavs lost back-to-back games in Portland and came home to an L from the Hawks.
Dallas has averaged 120 points in their last four games, but they are allowing 130. Tonight’s affair should feature more defense, but if the Mavs can keep up that scoring, they should have no problem defeating a Miami squad that is last in the league in scoring.
Luka is another factor that needs to change for this team to return to their winning ways, he has been below his season average on this stretch, but a rebound game here feels inevitable.
Luka Doncic Over 34.5 Points (-105)
Clippers @ Spurs
The Clippers head to San Antonio looking for their third win of the season against the Spurs.
Looking at the injury report, Wall and Kennard are still out. Paul George is playing in this one, and Kawhi’s knee is showing as questionable — but he should play.
Visiting a San Antonio team that only has 14 wins on the season, the Clippers should only need one of their superstars to pull off a win. However, seven points is a tricky line to wager on.
In November, Paul George defeated this team by seven without the help of Kawhi, and two weeks later, he won by 22 with Leonard. With both superstars in action tonight, it’ll be ugly. Seven is not enough points.
Clippers -7 (-110) Clippers -12.5 (+192)
