Who’s Playing

Miami @ Dallas

Current Records: Miami 5-1; Dallas 4-2

What to Know

The Miami Heat will take on the Dallas Mavericks at 7:30 p.m. ET Tuesday at American Airlines Center after having had a few days off. These two teams seek to continue their momentum from their previous wins.

The Heat made easy work of the Memphis Grizzlies this past Saturday and carried off a 129-103 win. The contest was all but wrapped up at the end of the third, by which point Miami had established a 102-79 advantage. Their small forward Jimmy Butler did his thing and had 27 points and seven assists in addition to five boards.

Meanwhile, Dallas didn’t have too much breathing room in their game with the Sacramento Kings on Sunday, but they still walked away with a 105-99 victory. It was another big night for the Mavericks’ point guard Luka Doncic, who almost posted a triple-double on 23 points, ten assists, and eight rebounds.

Barring any buzzer beaters, the Heat are expected to win a tight contest. They might be worth taking a chance on against the spread as they are currently on a four-game streak of ATS wins.

The wins brought Miami up to 5-1 and Dallas to 4-2. A couple stats to keep in the back of your head while watching: Miami have been holding their opponents to a field goal percentage of 39%, which places them first in the league. Less enviably, the Mavericks have only been able to knock down 40.40% percent of their shots, which is the lowest field goal percentage in the league.
