Coming off of a loss in Milwaukee, Dallas is looking to bounce right back at home. The Kings and Mavericks are both top-ten in scoring this year and their games in recent years have been exciting. No reason to believe it will be any different today, as these two offensive juggernauts should be running and gunning in a high-scoring and close game.

Odds up to date as of 12:00 PM CST from DraftKings
Dallas just suffered a brutal loss in Milwaukee last night where the ball did not bounce their way late. The best thing you can do after a loss like that is play the next day and the Mavericks just did this very thing on Wednesday against Washington, where they scored 130 points. This game will be high-paced and high-scoring with little defense. Take the over on 244.5 points.
- De’Aaron Fox over 28.5 points (-110)
- Luka Doncic over 8.5 assists (+105)
Fox has averaged 35 a game in his last four against Dallas. He plays downhill and this year has been an elite scorer. The Mavericks’ defense is not built to defend fast guards and Fox should have a big day.
The Kings allow 27 assists a game. Because of the pace of this game and the quality defense of Keegan Murray, Doncic should find his teammates all night. The Lively-Doncic pick-and-roll should be alive and well, giving him plenty of opportunity to get double-digit assists.
Play of the Day
- Kyrie Irving over 5.5 assists (-130)
For similar reasons, this is the play of the day. Irving had at least seven assists in all three games against Sacramento as a Maverick last season and should have no problem hitting this today.
