The Mavericks have had forty-four wins and twenty-eight defeats after seventy-two matches, and currently occupy the fifth position in the Western Conference table. During this season, they scored 7681 and received 7500 points, which means that they play matches with 210.8 points on average. They play much better at home, and in thirty-six games they recorded twenty-four victories, with a basket difference of 3833 scored and 3686 received points (208.9 points on average, 106.5-102.4). As for the current form, the Mavericks have managed to achieve three victories in the previous five matches, while they have lost two matches.

They were defeated by the Philadelphia 76ers with 111: 101, and then they were defeated by the Charlotte Hornets with a score of 129: 108. In the last game played, they were better than the Minnesota Timberwolves with 110: 108. The Mavericks are achieving good results this season thanks to a good game in defense, and we do not doubt that an aggressive game in defense will be the “key to success” in this match.

There is not much to say positively about the team that managed to record only eighteen victories in seventy-two matches, and the impression that the Rockets have this season can be described in one word – disappointing. The Houston Rockets are in the last fifteenth place in the Western Conference table, and they have not had any chances for placement in the playoffs for a long time. So far this season, they have scored 7845 and received 8508 points, which gives us an average of 227.1 points per game. They played thirty-six matches on the visiting fields, in which they recorded only seven victories, with 3857 achieved and 4275 received points, or 225.9 on average (107.1-118.8).
They broke a series of five consecutive defeats only in the last round, so we can’t say that they are in good shape. The Mavericks were better with 113: 100, followed by a 130: 105 defeat by the Pelicans. At home, they lost to the Phoenix Suns with 129: 112, and in the next match, the Indiana Pacers were more successful with 121: 118. The Grizzlies were convincing with 122: 98, and then the Rockets finally came out victorious against the Washington Wizards with a score of 115: 97.

Dallas Mavericks vs. Houston Rockets Prediction
The Mavericks need to win this match, and a possible failure would be a huge sensation. We expect the Mavericks to play as aggressively as possible in defense and limit the Rockets to around 100 points, so we think the set margin of 227 points is too high.
Prediction: Under 227 Points
