Through 3 Quarters

The Dallas Mavericks typically have all the answers at home, but the Chicago Bulls are posing a tough problem. Three quarters in and the Bulls’ offense has really been able to impose its will, dominating Dallas 98-80 three quarters in.

Chicago has been relying on point guard Lonzo Ball, who has shot 7-for-9 from beyond the arc and has recorded 21 points, four assists and five rebounds, and shooting guard Zach LaVine, who has 21 points.

Dallas has been led by point guard Luka Doncic, who so far has 16 points and eight assists in addition to seven boards.

This is the first time Chicago has been ahead going into the fourth quarter in the past five games.

Current Records: Dallas 7-3; Chicago 7-3

What to Know

The Dallas Mavericks have enjoyed the comforts of home their last two games, but now they must head out on the road. They will take on the Chicago Bulls at 8 p.m. ET on Wednesday at United Center. The Mavericks have been on the wrong side of a one-way rivalry with Chicago and are hoping to record their first victory since Jan. 6 of last year.

While not quite a landslide, the matchup between Dallas and the New Orleans Pelicans on Monday was still a pretty decisive one as Dallas wrapped it up with a 108-92 win at home. Point guard Luka Doncic (25 points) was the top scorer for Dallas.

Meanwhile, Chicago took their game against the Brooklyn Nets on Monday by a conclusive 118-95 score. The Bulls’ shooting guard Zach LaVine did his thing and had 24 points and five assists along with five boards.

The Mavericks are expected to lose this next one by 3.5. Those who got lucky with them against the spread on Monday might want to hold off on placing bets this time since the squad has yet to string together back-to-back wins against the spread.

Their wins lifted both teams to an identical 7-3. We’ll see which team can carry over their success and which team inevitably falls when Dallas and Chicago clash.
