Dallas Mavericks vs Portland Trail Blazers Preview
Dallas Mavericks are 7th on the table of West Conference with 43 wins and 30 losses. I think that would be important for Dallas to try to avoid the 7th spot and playing against Los Angeles Clippers in the first round of the playoff. What is even more important is to save players like Doncic, Porzingis, and Finney-Smith from injuries as all three of them are questionable for this game against the Trail Blazers. In the last match, Dallas played without all of them but still came as winners 122-114 against Utah Jazz.
Portland Trail Blazers are 9th on the table of West Conference with 33 wins and 39 losses. It is crowded around that desired 8th spot on the West as Memphis have just half a win more than Trail Blazers and one win more than Phoenix and San Antonio. Portland Trail Blazers also won three of the last four matches. In the last match, they won 124-121 against the Philadelphia 76ers.

Luka Doncic and Kristaps Porzingis led the winners with 27 and 20 points, respectively. For the Blazers Damian Lillard was magnificent with 47 points, while Trevor Ariza added 21 points.
For this game, my pick is Portland Trail Blazers. It is still uncertain will Doncic, Porzingis, and Finney-Smith play in this match. If Kristaps or Luka still have any injury problems, I don't see them playing, because the more important than anything right now is to save them for the playoffs. Also, Portland is in good form, they are hunting that 8th spot, the Trail Blazers will have a maximum focus for this game.
