Responding to a speech by their coach Rick Carlisle the Mavericks played inspired basketball and defeated the Rockets 101-99 in overtime in the last meeting between the two teams on Sunday. The Mavs were lead on offense by Dirk Nowitzki and Jason Terry. Nowitzki hit on a game high 31 points on 10 of 20 shooting while Terry was on fire as well tallying 24 points on 9 of 16 shooting. The Mavericks are now a dominating 15-1 when scoring at least 100 points this season. That is really a testament to the consistency of their defense all season long.
The Rockets were playing without point guard Kyle Lowry and leading scorer Kevin Martin on Sunday night, but still put up a good fight. Goran Dragic led a balanced Rockets attack with 24 points and all of the other four starters scored in double digits as well. The Rockets dominated the rebounding department by outrebounding the Mavs 52-38. Where the Mavs really turned the tide was in the category of bench scoring as the thin Rockets bench was outscored 44-13.
Head to head the Mavs are 4-1 ATS in the last 5, but the underdog is 11-5 ATS in the last 16 games between the two clubs.
The games between these two teams have always been hard fought and intense and we expect the same tonight. The Rockets though will be playing the second night of a back to back and we think that will give the fresh legs of the Mavs an advantage. Enough of an advantage where we feel they are a good option in this one an before your wager pick up sportsbook promo codes.
