Dallas Mavericks Form

Dallas come into this game on a good run that has seen them win five of the last six despite dealing with several injuries.

The Mavericks stumbled during the second half of November and started December with a couple of defeats.

However, they got back on track with a 147-97 demolition of Utah at home, which was followed up by a 125-112 win in Portland and 120-113 victory at Memphis.

Dallas then returned home to beat the Los Angeles Lakers 127-125, but their streak was ended at four games by a 119-101 loss to Minnesota.

The Mavericks bounced back on Saturday night though, as they went back to Portland and won 131-120.

Denver Nuggets Form

Denver enter this big Western Conference matchup on the back of their fourth defeat in their last seven games.

The Nuggets enjoyed a four-game win streak at the end of November, but saw their form dip at the start of December.

They lost 123-117 in Sacramento and 111-102 at the LA Clippers, before returning home to suffer a 114-106 defeat at the hands of Houston.

Denver stopped the rot in Atlanta though, beating the Hawks 129-122, and they followed that up with a 114-106 win in Chicago.

The Nuggets then beat Brooklyn 124-101 at home, only to see their run end at three games with a 118-117 loss to Oklahoma City.

Verdict

Dallas have been doing well despite their injuries, but here they are facing the defending champions.

Denver are hard to beat at home and the Mavericks are yet to cover in a loss, so we like the Nuggets to cover as the bounce back from the defeat to the Thunder.
