THE STORY: The Mavericks are coming off a dismal loss on Wednesday night to the Memphis Grizzlies, at home in Dallas. Tonight is set to be a high scoring affair with both teams having a top 10 offensive rating, while the Wizards currently have the worst defensive rating in the league.

The Mavericks are still without Luka Doncic due to an ankle injury, but Kristaps Porzingis has stepped up and given Dallas the boost it’s needed in his absence. Bradley Beal is averaging 33.8 points over his last 10 games, and will surely try to make amends for his ejection on opening night against the Mavericks.

We might see both teams hit 100 before the end of the third quarter.
