Mavericks vs Pacers Head-to-Head this season.
The Pacers won in Dallas a month ago 124-122
Dallas Mavericks continue their downward spiral as the regular season nears its conclusion. They have now lost four straight games, including two consecutive losses against last-place Hornets this past weekend. Their road record is also not good - only 14 out of 37 away games won this season.
Furthermore, the Pacers have confidence in beating this Mavericks team after winning their first meeting 124-122 last month in Dallas. Doncic and Irving played in that game. Dallas' offense has struggled recently; averaging only 111.4 points over their last five games - below their season average of 113 points.
Bet the over in this game. The first matchup between these teams led to a total of 246 points and this game should be near the same.
