Dallas Mavericks vs Atlanta Hawks Prediction

Another cross-conference matchup awaits Dallas. They host Trae Young and the Atlanta Hawks (11-12), hoping to complete a regular-season series 2-0 sweep on Thursday morning with their third straight win, after successive victories vs Golden State and the Minnesota Timberwolves.

Can Luka Doncic and Kristaps Porzingis combine to devastating effect on this occasion? Or will Lloyd Pierce's understaffed Hawks respond as they look to go .500 through 24 games to date? Read my basketball preview, for the best betting odds ahead of this compelling H2H matchup.

Dallas Mavericks vs Atlanta Hawks Preview

Between Doncic and Porzingis, they combined 53 points, 21 rebounds and nine assists as Dallas outlasted a 45-point fourth-quarter by Minnesota to win 127-122 last time out. The one-two punch they provide has long been heralded as the thing which holds Dallas' dark horse mantle in place, flying under the radar as a team who believe they can challenge for an NBA title.

Porzingis (knee) has only played 14 of their 25 games this term, while Doncic's struggles with conditioning and three-point shooting have hit the headlines early. Supported by offseason acquisition Josh Richardson (18 pts, 8 ast, 5 rebs) and Tim Hardaway Jr (24 pts, four threes) producing reliable numbers at a consistent clip, they can begin justifying their lofty ambitions.

Atlanta is an exciting team - centred around a one-two punch of their own (Young and fourth-year PF John Collins) but admittedly at an earlier stage of their development as a collective unit, which goes some way to understanding inconsistencies this term. They outlasted Toronto 132-121 last weekend, precisely the type of team they could be competing with for a playoff seed. 

Only nine players leaguewide - Doncic (27.8) included - are averaging more points than Young (26.7). While his decision-making appears a double-edged sword at times, adopting a single-minded approach makes sense when aren't exactly the most consistent shooters.

Atlanta has seven players averaging 10 or more points to start the season. Yet, the only one who has shown a significant jump from last year is sidelined - second-year SF De'Andre Hunter reportedly out for between 3-6 weeks according to recent medical reports. That could make a significant difference in where they ultimately finish out East, but who knows? 

Elsewhere, players' numbers and shooting efficiency are largely down, making this encounter even more impressive considering the pair has largely similar stats so far this term.

Dallas Mavericks vs Atlanta Hawks Betting Tips

ESPN's BPI is backing Dallas to win this matchup (65.8%), largely centred on Atlanta missing key players like SF De'Andre Hunter and offseason acquisition Bogdan Bogdanovic (both knee).

Two-time NBA champion Rajon Rondo (back) is listed as day-to-day but not expected to play, meaning additional pressure on Trae and others to propel them in a welcome road win. All things considered, I'm predicting the Mavericks earn a hard-fought result on this occasion.
