Wizards vs Mavericks Prediction: Last Game Analysis

Will the Wizards continue their two-match winning streak?

The Wizards have been on a decent run of late and are coming off two back-to-back wins. Washington displayed class by thrashing the Magic at home in their most recent matchup. The Wizards’ success was mostly due to their effectiveness; as a group, they shot 54% from the field and a blistering 53% from three points and beyond.

Will the Mavericks show up and end their streak of inconsistency?

The Dallas Mavericks are currently fifth in the Western Conference standings, topped by the Denver Nuggets. The Mavericks’ recent run of games has been inconsistent.

The Mavericks shot 15-26 from the charity stripe, compared to the Clippers’ 30-31. The Mavericks have struggled all season with their collective free-throw shooting, despite recent improvements. Doncic finished with 29 points on 43% shooting, but it took him a while to really get going, and the Clippers did an excellent job of containing his ability to be a facilitator.
