The two teams have faced each other 59 times in the regular season and so far, the Mavericks have won 40 contests, while 19 wins have gone to the Pelicans.

Dallas Mavericks: The Mavericks have been going well with 9 wins under their belt from their last 11 matches, however, their away form has been remarkably bad, with them able to win only 2 of their 10 away matches.The Dallas Mavericks are averaging 110.8 points on 46.1 percent shooting and allowing 108.9 points on 46.3 percent shooting. Luka Doncic is averaging 18.5 points and 4.3 assists while Harrison Barnes is averaging 18.3 points and 4.8 rebounds. Wesley Matthews is the third double-digit scorer and Dennis Smith Jr. is dishing 3.9 assists.

The Mavericks will be coming into the game with a win under their belt against the Portland Trailblazers, 111 to 102. Though the Mavericks managed to score only 43.7% of the field goals, which was lesser than that of the Blazers’ 45.2%, they earned big on the 3 Points. Scoring 36.7% of them, while the Trail Blazers managed only 29.2%. Luka Doncic  who had missed the last match because of his hip injury returned and did well against the Trailblazers, however, back to back matches, as the Mavericks have on their cards, might just hurt the newly recovered maverick.
New Orleans Pelicans: Having lost 6 of their last 8 matches, the Pelicans are in desperate need of a win,not only to improve their standings in the table but also to boost their morale. However, they will take heart from the fact that they have done well at home, with 6 wins from their 8 games, while the Mavericks have been having a very bad season on the road. The New Orleans Pelicans are averaging 118.1 points on 47.9 percent shooting and allowing 116.7 points on 46.8 percent shooting. Anthony Davis is averaging 28 points and 13 rebounds while Jrue Holiday is averaging 20.6 points and nine assists. Nikola Mirotic is the third double-digit scorer and Julius Randle is grabbing nine rebounds.

When Anthony Davis managed to score 36 points, 19 rebounds, eight assists, two blocks, and two steals against the Charlotte Hornets, it seemed that they have finally managed to strengthen their defensive end, however, that did not seem to be the case in their last match against the Los Angeles Clippers, which they lost 126 to the Clippers’ 129. Though they played well in the offensive end of the court with 53.3% of the field goals and 38.25  of the 3 points, they were unable tos top their opponents from scoring more. Randle led the team with 37 points, 8 rebounds and 4 assists, while Davis managed to score 23 points and 13 rebounds along with 5 assists.

Free NBA Pick: New Orleans Pelicans Vs Dallas Mavericks.

Though the Mavericks have not really been at their best away from home, they at least are in better shape than their opponents, who are finding it extremely hard to contain their opponents at the moment. But the fact that they are playing back to back matches might just effect them, especially, Luka Doncic who recently made a comeback after an injury. However, the Mavericks have always had the upper hand against the Pelicans, historically.

Free NBA Pick: Dallas Mavericks +5.5
