With the Kings their defense struggled to hold a very weak Magic offense in check. Those type of struggles will most likely continue for the Kings in this game as Dallas definitely has a great offense and can come into the game swinging. Look for the Mavericks offense to play great and with Doncic and Porzingis hitting on all cylinders will help to lock down a big time Dallas win. Final Score, Dallas Mavericks win and cover 122-108.
