Dallas Mavericks will play against Detroit Pistons in the regular season of the NBA, and on our site, you can read NBA picks predictions. The game is on Thursday, December 12, at 9:00 PM ET and the place is Mexico City Arena, Mexico City, Mexico.
Dallas Mavericks 16-7 are 3rd in the NBA Western Conference. In their last match, they played against Sacramento Kings at home and lost 106-110. Tim Hardaway was the highest-scoring player that night for the home team with 29 points and Luka Dončić added 27 points but that was not enough in the end. However, before that the team from Dallas won 5 games in a row and among the beaten teams was Los Angeles Lakers. They beat them in L.A. 114-110 and Luka Dončić scored 27 points, gave 10 assists and got 9 rebounds – he needed only one more for triple-double.
Detroit Pistons 10-14 are 9th in the NBA Eastern Conference. The team is playing very good lately and won 4 of their last 5 matches in the league. All started with a victory against San Antonio Spurs 132-98 at home and the best player for them that night was Christian Wood with 28 points for less than 23 minutes. Then they beat Cleveland Cavaliers 127-94 away from home. Their only loss in that period was at home against the best team in the East so far – Milwaukee Bucks 103-127. Pistons’ latest two matches were victories – against Indiana Pacers 108-101 at home and against New Orleans Pelicans 105-103 away from home. Detroit can thank Derrick Rose for their victory against Pelicans because he scored 17 points in the 4th quarter including the game-winner in the last second of the match.
Both teams will be guests in the upcoming match because it will be played in another country – Mexico. Dallas Mavericks are favorites and I also think that they will win the match because against the better teams Detroit Pistons lose. This will be the case in this match too so I will bet on Mavericks.
