What to Know

The Mavericks and the Pacers are an even 5-5 against one another since February of 2019, but not for long. The Dallas Mavericks will be playing at home against the Indiana Pacers at 8:30 p.m. ET on Tuesday at American Airlines Center. Both of these teams will be coming in off a loss in a game they were expected to win.

Last Sunday, Dallas was within striking distance but couldn’t close the gap as they fell 120-116 to the 76ers. The Mavericks have now taken an ‘L’ in back-to-back games.

The loss doesn’t tell the whole story though, as several players had good games. One of the most active was Luka Doncic, who dropped a triple-double on 38 points, 11 rebounds, and ten assists. He hasn’t dropped below 26 points for 11 straight games. Another player making a difference was Derrick Jones Jr., who scored 21 points along with seven rebounds.

Meanwhile, the Pacers and the Spurs couldn’t quite live up to the 243-over/under that the experts had forecasted. Indiana took a 117-105 hit to the loss column at the hands of the Spurs on Sunday. The Pacers found out winning isn’t easy when you don’t work as a unit and post 13 fewer assists than your opponent.

T.J. McConnell put forth a good effort for the losing side as he scored 26 points along with five assists and three steals. Less helpful for the Pacers was Tyrese Haliburton’s abysmal 0-6 three-point shooting.

The Pacers struggled to work together and finished the game with only 20 assists. That’s the fewest assists they’ve managed all season.

Dallas’ defeat ended a four-game streak of wins at home and dropped them to 34-27. As for Indiana, they have been struggling recently as they’ve lost three of their last four contests, which put a noticeable dent in their 34-28 record this season.

Tuesday’s match is shaping up to be a masterclass in shooting: The Mavericks just can’t miss this season, having made 48% of their shots per game. However, it’s not like the Pacers (currently ranked first in field goal percentage) struggle in that department as they’ve made 50.7% of their shots this season. Given these competing strengths, it’ll be interesting to see how their clash plays out.

As for their next game, the Mavericks are the favorite in this one, as the experts expect to see them win by 4.5 points. For those looking to play the spread, take note: they are a solid 20-13 against the spread when expected to win.
