What you need to know about the Mavericks

Dallas has won five of its last six games following wins over Milwaukee and Detroit earlier this week. The Mavericks wrapped up a four-game road trip with a 131-113 win over the Pistons and they will now be at home for two games to close out the regular season. They are in fourth place in the Western Conference standings, but they are only one game back of third-place Golden State. 

The Mavericks took three out of four games against Golden State during the regular season, so they own the tiebreaker over the Warriors. Star point guard Luka Doncic, who leads Dallas with 28.3 points, 9.1 rebounds and 8.8 assists per game, scored a combined 58 points in the final two games of the road trip. The Mavericks have won seven of their last eight home games and have covered the spread in five of their last six games overall. 

What you need to know about the Trail Blazers

Portland has not won a game since picking up a 119-115 victory over Detroit on March 21. The Trail Blazers lost a close game at Oklahoma City on Tuesday, but they were blown out by New Orleans on Thursday. They will be wrapping up a five-game road trip on Friday night before concluding a disappointing season at home against Utah on Sunday. 

Drew Eubanks has taken over as Portland’s leading scorer, as CJ McCollum was traded, and Damian Lillard is out with an injury. Eubanks has scored in double figures in 15 straight games, reaching the 20-point mark on five occasions. He shot 9 of 11 from the floor in the loss to the Pelicans on Thursday.
