NBA:Sacramento Kings @ Dallas Mavericks
- Title : NBA:Sacramento Kings @ Dallas Mavericks
Neither team has tasted success since the restart as both have lost twice. The Mavericks have played tight contests, falling to Houston in overtime before dropping a two-point decision to Phoenix. This bodes well for the Kings, who lost both of their contests by at least nine points. My model says Sacramento covers the spread in almost 60 percent of the time.
Tim Hardaway Jr
The Dallas Mavericks will mix it up versus the Sacramento Kings on Tuesday afternoon at the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex in Bay Lake, Florida. The Mavericks, despite a seven-game lead over the Memphis Grizzlies for seventh-place within the Western Conference, are seeking to get back on the winning track and avoid a third-straight loss after falling as the home team to the Phoenix Suns sunday night. The Kings have their work cut out for them as they are ten games below .500 and occupying twelfth place in the West in addition to entering this contest losers of three-straight games, including two-straight since the restart of the season.
Sacramento may be ranked 23th in the NBA in scoring per game (109 ppg); However, the team is currently shooting 46% from the floor (good for 17th in the league) and are averaging one-hundred and eighteen points per since their season restarted on July 31st.
the Mavericks certainly have their options on the offensive end, the problem has been an inability to take control of games after taking the lead. In other words, they refuse to stifle opponents once they are in control of the contest, thus allowing opponents to get back into the game and, unfortunately, rally to pick up a win as was the case in their last two outings.
I believe that he will play under 19.5 points and assists tonigt. If you look backwards towards his past games, only against the rockets he went over the line. In the rocket game there was overtime and over 300 points scored in total, which is not a normal match. Tonight probably not end in overtime and the match will be more like the rest. I find huge value in this line.
My prediction today is a player statistic: Tim Hardaway Jr will go under 19,5 points in total points and assist.
Tim Hardaway last 5 game, points and assist:
Phoenix suns: 2
Houston Rockets: 24
