Why the Knicks can cover

New York got off to a slow start after the All-Star break but turned the tide in its previous two wins. Kemba Walker has been benched for the rest of the season and the Knicks’ scoring average is up. Shooting from RJ Barrett and Julius Randle could help the visitors cover against one of the best defensive teams in the NBA.

New York is averaging just 105.8 points per game on the year. Only three teams have lower averages this season. However, the Knicks have put up 115.6 points per game in their last five contests. They’ve already beaten the Mavericks on the road once this season and their current strong streak could help them go 2-0 against Dallas this year.

Why the Mavericks can cover

Dallas has been successful straight up and against the spread lately. The Mavericks have covered eight of their last 10 games and thrived after Kristaps Porzingis’ move to the Washington Wizards. They have won eight of the 10 games they have played since the trade deadline.

Doncic was named Western Conference Player of the Month in February and enjoys wide support after posting 34.7 points, 10.3 rebounds and 8.8 assists per game last month. Jalen Brunson’s scoring average rose to nearly 20 points per game in March, and Spencer Dinwiddie stabilized the Dallas bench. New York’s lack of depth at guard could see the Knicks flounder against one of the strongest guard rotations in the NBA.
