Dallas Mavs and the Portland Trail Blazers meet for the second time in 24 hours. The Blazers had more success in the opening contest, will that happen tonight as well?

Before Betting on the Mavericks vs. Trail Blazers

Last night’s event at Moda Center was the fourth in a row on the road for the Mavs. They lost three and won only one (against the Lakers in LA). Dallas was severely beaten, and the match’s key moment was the second period when the hosts scored 40 points while Mavs delivered 26.

Luka had only 15 buckets in 36 minutes, missing all of his five three-point shooting and grabbing 10 boards. Reggie Bullock had 24, all from eight threes, while Spencer Dinwiddie delivered a team-high 25 buckets. 

Damian Lillard was unstoppable, playing 29 minutes but scoring 36 points and dishing ten assists. Jusuf Nurkic also scored a double-double with 22 points and 11 boards, and Anfernee Simons had 21 baskets. 

The Blazers had 55.7% shooting from the field, hitting 17 threes in 41 attempts, 41.5%, which is pretty solid. This was a very important victory for the Blazers, who stopped a negative skid, getting closer to the .500 record, having 20 wins and 22 losses right now. 


We expect to see the Mavs coming back and trying to respond. Jason Kidd will demand a much tougher defense and more pressure, and that’s why we take under 227 points as the final pick:
