Free ESPN NBA Pick Houston Rockets vs. Dallas Mavericks.

The two teams have faced each other 178 times in the regular season, of which, the Mavericks have won 83 encounters and the Rockets have won 95 of the encounters.

Houston Rockets: The Rockets have won 11 of their last 14 matches, and will be looking to maintain their last 7 match winning streak as they take the Mavericks on away from home. There was a point in the season when people were questioning whether there’d actually be a legitimate challenge for the Golden State Warriors in the Western Conference. The Rockets answered emphatically by handing the defending champions a loss at Oracle Arena. One throwaway game and five possible playoff contenders later, the Rockets still haven’t lost a game since putting the Warriors on notice.The Rockets have been average both at the defensive and offensive end of the court. They are ranked 11th in the offensive column, earning 113.2 points per match and ranked 12th in the league in the defensive column, they give away 110.5 points per game to their opponents. Harden is the top scorer for the team with 36.6 points, 6.5 rebounds and 7.5 assists. Capela is the second highest scorer with16.7 points, 12.5 rebounds and 1.4 assists.

The Rockets won their last match against the 76ers, 107 to 91. The Rockets certainly took advantage of the absence of Joel Embiid by consistently attacking the basket. Over half of their points came in the paint area. They scored 49.4% of the field goals and earned 31.7% of the 3 points. Harden was obviously their top scorer with 31 points, while Capela came up with 18 points.

Dallas Mavericks: The Mavericks need some time to gain their confidence and form back after having lost 9 of their last 10 matches. Most of their woes this season is mainly due to their superbly bad offensive form. They are ranked 22nd in the league and shoot 108.1 points per game. But they are doing decently well in the defensive end of the court and ranked 11, give away 109.8 points to their opponents. One player that hasn’t seemed frustrated is the most important player on the Mavericks’ roster for years to come, star forward Luca Doncic. He’s like a kid in the school yard soaking it all in while averaging 21.1 points per game. He is all the fans have their hopes stuck to. Hardaway Jr is the second highest scorer with 18.3 points.

The Mavericks lost their last match against the Magic, 106 to 111. The Mavericks attempted to make things interesting on Friday against the Magic. After falling behind early in the game, they rallied in the fourth quarter for a last-ditch effort at a comeback, but the Magic slapped down the opportunity and handed the Mavericks their fourth consecutive loss. They earned 47.2% of the field goals and 29.4% of the 3 points. Doncic added 24 points, along with 8 rebounds and 5 assists on the night.

ESPN NBA Scores Dallas Mavericks vs. Houston Rockets.

It should be a fairly easy game to pick teams from. The Rockets have been in superb form, while the Mavericks have been able to find their feet recently. While the Rockets have found ways of closing even close matches in their favour, the Mavericks have simply been blown away. Surprisingly though, it is the Mavericks who are leading the season series by 2-1 but the Rockets won the last meeting by 120-104 back on Feb 11 and I can’t see anything but a similar result as the Rockets are 17-8 ATS in the last 25 meetings overall and 4-1 ATS in the last five meetings in Dallas.
