Advice and prediction

The Mavericks and Nuggets have met once this season, and Luka Doncic dropped 38 points in a 124-117 overtime win in Denver. The Mavericks have Kristaps Porzingis back the lineup but are missing three starters from that team that beat the Nuggets. I’d expect this to be a close, high-scoring game, but the Nuggets seem to be turning a corner and resembling the team that was a force in the bubble.

Take Nuggets -1.5, but the best bet here is on over 222.5. The Mavericks have been allowing 117 points per game over their last six, and the Nuggets rank 25th in defensive rating and are in the bottom half in points allowed.

Prediction: Nuggets 124, Mavericks 119.
