Preview: Mavericks (18-13) at Wizards (14-14)

Date: January 01, 2014 6:00 PM EDT


The Dallas Mavericks seem to have turned things around on the road, and a visit to the nation's capital would appear to give them a good chance to continue that success.

The Washington Wizards, though, are playing some of their best basketball of the season.

Dallas completes a three-game trip Wednesday night as it looks to win four in a row on the road for the first time in nearly three years with a fifth straight victory in Washington.

The Mavericks (18-13) are a solid team at home with 11 wins in 15 games, but they began the season with just four victories in their first 13 away from home before winning the last three on the road.

Dallas has played particularly well on this trip, beating Chicago 105-83 on Saturday and holding off Minnesota 100-98 on Monday behind Shawn Marion's clutch play down the stretch.

Marion scored 32 points - his most since he had 34 against the Bulls while with Toronto in April 2009 - hit two huge 3-pointers in the fourth quarter and swatted away Kevin Love's 21-foot jumper at the buzzer.

"I'm all about winning games, man," Marion said. "Whatever it takes."

Marion, who made 14 of 19 shots to go with six rebounds and three assists, had 14 points, 13 boards and a season-best plus-21 rating Saturday in Chicago.

"Shawn was the key to the game, no question about it," coach Rick Carlisle said. "If we're giving out game balls, it'd be two game balls in a row for him. Activity was great. Played both ends of the floor. Didn't run one play for him. He just produced."

Dallas will now try to win four straight away from home for the first time since March 16-30, 2011, while also going for an eighth consecutive victory over Washington (14-14).

The Wizards have won two straight and five of six, with five of those games coming on the road. They swept a home-and-home series against Detroit with a 106-99 victory in Auburn Hills on Monday.

John Wall had 29 points and seven assists to help Washington get to .500 after 28 games for the first time since finishing the 2007-08 season 43-39.

"It's big, and we know where we want to be," swingman Martell Webster said. "At this point in the year, it's a time we've got to get rolling. When teams start to click, the offensive and defensive schemes start to be all muscle memory."

Washington scores 99.6 points per game, but that number has jumped to 105.2 during this 5-1 stretch due in large part to the team's shooting. The Wizards are making 48.2 percent of their attempts and are 55 for 118 (46.6) from 3-point range.

Wall has been the catalyst, averaging 22.9 points and shooting 50.9 percent over the last seven games while scoring at least 20 in each contest.

"I'm really happy how we're playing, but the main thing with us is we have to play one way," Wall said. "... Be aggressive and play the right way."

Dallas had five players score in double figures in a 105-95 win over visiting Washington on Nov. 12.

Preview: Pacers (24-5) at Raptors (13-15)

Date: January 01, 2014 7:00 PM EDT


The Indiana Pacers and Toronto Raptors turned in defensive clinics in the fourth quarters to rally for victories in their most recent games.

One night later, the Pacers will put their five-game win streak on the line Wednesday when they visit a Raptors team that has won a season-high three in a row.

Indiana (25-5) harassed Cleveland into 18.8 percent (3 of 16) shooting in the fourth quarter of Tuesday's 91-76 home win. The Pacers trailed by one entering the final 12 minutes.

"We played better defense, played smart and hit the open man," guard Lance Stephenson said. "We were protecting the rim."

Toronto (14-15) limited Chicago to 16.7 percent (4 of 24) from the field in the fourth quarter of Tuesday's 85-79 road victory. The Raptors entered the period down five.

"It was a grind-it-out game," coach Dwane Casey said. "These kind of games are the kind of games you have to play if you're going to be serious about being a playoff team."

The Pacers are allowing a league-low 89.0 points per game. They lowered the NBA's best defensive field goal percentage to 41.1 on a night leading scorer Paul George had 21 points despite missing nine of 11 3-point shots against the Cavaliers. Roy Hibbert scored 19 and George Hill had 13.

"Tonight's game was a perfect example of how you can still go out and win a basketball game when your shot's not falling," coach Frank Vogel said. "Aside from George Hill, it seemed like nobody could make a perimeter shot and it was just one of those nights offensively from the field so you got to win the game in other ways."

Toronto has seen vast improvement since Dec. 13 - when the majority of the players acquired from Sacramento in the Rudy Gay deal made their club debuts. The Raptors are limiting opponents to 42.5 percent from the field in a 7-2 run since that date after that figure was at 46.6 in the first 20 games.

"No one's trying to do anything they can't do," guard Kyle Lowry said. "Everything that everyone's doing out there is what they know how to do."

The trade means that Indiana's 91-84 home win over Toronto on Nov. 8 means very little since Gay led all players with 30 points. Indiana has taken nine of the last 12 meetings, including four straight on the road.

The Pacers are winning by an average of 21.2 points over their last five games while the Raptors can reach .500 for the first time since they were 2-2.

Jonas Valanciunas is averaging 13.1 points and 10.6 rebounds in his last nine games and will match up with Hibbert, who outscored him 20-4 in the first meeting.

This contest figures to be a challenge for DeMar DeRozan, who scored 11 points on 3-of-12 shooting against the Bulls.

His only lower output came in the first matchup with the Pacers as he made 2 of 15 shots for six points. DeRozan has failed to score in double digits three times in his last 53 games - twice versus Indiana.

The Raptors are 4-2 in the second half of back-to-back games while the Pacers are 5-3.

Preview: Pelicans (14-15) at Timberwolves (15-16)

Date: January 01, 2014 8:00 PM EDT


The New Orleans Pelicans are coming off one of their most impressive wins of the season and are in position to climb back to .500.

They'll go for a fourth win in five games Wednesday night at Minnesota as they try to start 2014 as they ended 2013.

The Pelicans (14-15) got a season-high 31 points and 13 assists from Jrue Holiday in a 110-108 home win over Portland on Monday.

New Orleans shot 53.9 percent, held the NBA's top-scoring team to 44.3 percent, outrebounded the Trail Blazers 47-38 and turned the ball over just nine times.

"We definitely think we're getting a lot more confident in each other defensively," Holiday told the team's official website. "We're still learning each other. We're still young. Going into the new year, it's good to get a home win. As a team collectively, we know how good we can be. We know that it's a process and we need to kind of piggyback off this win."

The first-year Pelican went 7 for 12 in the fourth quarter after a 1-of-9 shooting night in Saturday's 107-98 loss at Houston.

"He was excellent in the fourth quarter," teammate Tyreke Evans said. "He was in control. That's what he's here for."

Anthony Davis had 27 points on 13-of-19 shooting to go with 12 rebounds and five blocks in his sixth game back from a broken hand. The Pelicans are 3-2 with Davis back in the starting lineup with the losses coming on the road against Portland and Houston by single digits.

They still aren't entirely healthy. New Orleans has played the last three games without starting guard Eric Gordon due to a bruised right hip, while center Jason Smith has missed four of five games with shoulder and knee injuries.

The Pelicans now open a four-game road trip against a Timberwolves team that's also hovering around .500.

Minnesota (15-16) started a three-game homestand Monday with a 100-98 loss to Dallas, falling to 0-8 when failing to score 100 points.

The Wolves had won their previous two games against Washington and Milwaukee by an average of 22.0 points, but they fell behind by 19 at halftime against the Mavericks before tying the game entering the fourth quarter.

"If we play like we did in the second half, we are going to get through this, it's just disappointing," coach Rick Adelman told the Wolves' official website. "We got back (to .500) and we just couldn't get over it."

Kevin Love led the way with 36 points and 11 rebounds. It was his third-highest point total of the season, but Minnesota is 0-3 in those games.

Center Nikola Pekovic had his fifth straight double-double with 18 points and 10 rebounds as Minnesota failed to win three straight for the first time since opening the season 3-0.

"We just can't get over the hump, it's tough for us," Pekovic said. "But like coach said, we are on the right course, we just need to keep fighting, keep playing better."

The Wolves have won the last two meetings with the Pelicans, both coming in Minnesota without Love in the lineup.

The Pelicans waived reserve forward Lou Amundson on Tuesday. The eight-year veteran played in 18 games for New Orleans this season, averaging 2.1 points, 3.1 rebounds and 0.6 blocks in 10.2 minutes.

Preview: 76ers (9-21) at Nuggets (14-16)

Date: January 01, 2014 9:00 PM EDT


A season after finishing with the NBA's best home record, the Denver Nuggets haven't been able to stop the bleeding there during their current skid.

Perhaps they'll be able to turn things around against one of the league's worst road teams.

Denver looks to end its longest losing streak in 11 years while the Philadelphia 76ers try to build on their first win away from home in almost two months Wednesday night.

The Nuggets (14-16) finished a franchise-best 38-3 in Denver in 2012-13, including 23 straight wins to close out the regular season. That kind of home dominance, however, has eluded the slumping club this season.

Denver, 7-7 at the Pepsi Center, has dropped four straight there and seven in a row overall following a 97-94 loss to Miami on Monday. The losing streak is the Nuggets' longest since dropping the final eight games in 2002-03.

"I think we're starting to get it," forward Darrell Arthur said. "We're trying to turn this thing around. Obviously, we're on a seven-game losing streak but hopefully we can turn this thing around and get back over .500.'

After averaging 102.0 points and shooting 37.8 percent from 3-point range in the first 10 games on its own court, Denver has struggled to find a rhythm with 91.8 points per game on 29.0 percent shooting from beyond the arc during the home skid.

Ty Lawson, averaging a team-best 17.8 points, was a bright spot with 26 and seven assists Monday. He made 5 of 8 from 3-point range while the rest of the team shot 3 for 12.

Since scoring 12.1 per game on 35.2 percent shooting over a seven-game stretch, Lawson has totaled 46 points on 16-of-29 shooting in the last two.

With Lawson out due to a hamstring injury, Nate Robinson stepped up with 20 points to lead Denver to a 103-92 win in Philadelphia on Dec. 7. Tony Wroten had 20 points for the 76ers (9-21) while filling in for starter Michael Carter-Williams, who was sidelined with right knee soreness.

Carter-Williams has averaged 18.5 points, 8.3 assists and 3.0 steals in four contests since returning from a seven-game absence. He scored 13 on Sunday to help last-place Philadelphia snap a 13-game road losing streak with a 111-104 win over the Los Angeles Lakers.

Evan Turner, averaging a team-high 19.4 points, scored 22 after missing one game due to a sore right knee. Thaddeus Young paced the effort with 25 points and Spencer Hawes added 19 as the 76ers snagged their first road win since Nov. 1 and sixth overall in 27 games.

'We've been playing hard all season long," Young said. "Our record doesn't say we're going out there and doing the job, but we're working to get better every time.'

Young certainly has been on a roll, averaging 27.5 points while hitting 11 of 17 from 3-point range over the last four games. In the most recent meeting in Denver, Young had 18 points and Hawes added 17 and 12 rebounds in a 101-100 loss March 21.

While the 76ers have scored 109.8 points per game in their last four, they're allowing a league-high 111.5 on the season - including 120.7 over the last six.

Philadelphia has lost three of four meetings.

Preview: Bobcats (14-18) at Clippers (21-12)

Date: January 01, 2014 9:30 PM EDT


Looking to bounce back from their most lopsided loss of the season, the Los Angeles Clippers should have a good chance to get back on track at home after their winning streak there was snapped.

The first-place Clippers seek their sixth straight victory over the Charlotte Bobcats, who will try to avoid a 17th consecutive road loss to a Western Conference opponent Wednesday night.

Los Angeles (21-12) saw its five-game run at Staples Center end as Phoenix closed to within a half-game of the Pacific Division leaders with a 107-88 victory Monday.

The Clippers committed 20 turnovers and shot a season-worst 36.5 percent, losing for the third time in four games overall. They had averaged 110.6 points and 46.4 percent shooting in their previous five home games.

'On a night like this when our offense isn't going, we have to be able to rely on our defense," guard Chris Paul said. "We couldn't."

After allowing the Suns to shoot 48.2 percent with 12 3-pointers, Los Angeles may be able to tighten things up against a Charlotte team that ranks near the bottom of the league with 92.5 points per game, a 42.1 field-goal percentage and a 32.5 mark from 3-point range.

Paul and Blake Griffin hope to regroup after combining for 26 points and shooting 10 of 29. Griffin had totaled 75 and shot 59.6 from the field in the previous two contests, while Paul scored 55 and made 53.3 percent.

Though Paul was held to seven points and 3-of-7 shooting in a 106-84 win over visiting Charlotte on Feb. 26, Griffin made 11 of 14 shots en route to a team-high 24 points.

While the Bobcats (14-18) have improved this season, they're looking to avoid a season-worst fourth straight loss after dropping their first two on a season-high five-game trip.

Charlotte's last six losses have come by an average of 3.3 points, but it's lost 16 consecutive road games to West foes by a 19.2 margin dating to last season.

The Bobcats fell to 0-4 in such matchups this season after Utah's Trey Burke made a go-ahead layup over Kemba Walker with 19 seconds left in Monday's 83-80 loss. Charlotte's Gerald Henderson finished with 19 points.

'It's a make-or-miss league and they made it and we missed," said coach Steve Clifford after his club's fourth loss in five games. "That's happened to us the last three nights. We've gotten good shots by the right people and if we're going to win, they're going to have to go in the basket."

They didn't for Walker and Jefferson, who shot a combined 14 for 40 from the field (35.0 percent) as the Bobcats made 36.9 percent overall.

Though he was 8 for 23 on Monday, Jefferson has played well with 22.5 points and 14.5 rebounds per game in his last four on the road.

Walker, averaging a team-high 18.6 points, has shot just 29.6 percent in his last three games despite going 6 for 11 from 3-point range. He had 15 points while making 5 of 15 from the field but Henderson scored 24 in the February loss at Los Angeles.

For the first time in franchise history, the Clippers are heading into New Year's Day without a losing streak of more than two games in a full season.

They've won six of eight meetings in Los Angeles.
