Mavericks, Suns meet Thursday in clash of slumping teams

DALLAS MAVERICKS (8-10)

at PHOENIX SUNS (7-12)


Tip-off: Thursday, 10:35 p.m. ET
Line: Phoenix -3.5, Total: 202.5

The Suns and the Mavericks are both looking to get on track with a win on Thursday night.

Both Phoenix and Dallas enter this game having lost four out of the past five games and with the Suns more notably on a four-game losing skid. The Mavericks, however, have absolutely dominated Phoenix recently, going 7-1 ATS against them over the past three seasons.

Can the Clippers stay hot and cover this lofty spread? For the answer, connect to NBA Best Bets for all the Expert picks throughout the entire 2012-13 season. The experts continue to stay sizzling on NBA Best Bets since Nov. 26, going a collective 38-22 ATS (63%) with StatFox Gary going 8-2 ATS. For NBA Totals, StatFox Scott is 33-15 (69%) on NBA Totals for the season, while Gary is a tremendous 12-4 in Totals since Nov. 24. For Best Bets, the experts are a collective 111-94-8 ATS (54.4%) this year led by StatFox Gary who sits at 66% ATS (19-10-2).

The Mavericks have struggled as of late, getting blown out 112-90 on Wednesday night to the Clippers, but that will happen when playing without their superstar, Dirk Nowitzki. They’ve needed different guys to step up at different times and the guy who is used to doing it, O.J. Mayo, is struggling to find his shot over the past five games, averaging just 13.2 PPG on 37% FG compared to his seasonal averages of 19.7 PPG on 47% FG. Darren Collison (12.1 PPG, 6.1 APG) is also playing shooting horribly in his past four games, scoring just 6.8 PPG on 32% FG. Accordingly, his minutes have been cut to 24.8 MPG over this stretch, far below the 31.5 MPG he has this season. Somebody needs to step up and be a difference maker in Dallas. PG Derek Fisher was the only Dallas player with a positive rating against L.A., posting a +2 with his 15 points. Vince Carter led the team with 16 points (6-for-12 FG) and also pulled down seven rebounds, but posted a minus-13 rating versus the Clips.

All season long, the Suns have struggled to find consistency within their starting lineup. Goran Dragic has been Phoenix’s most effective player this season, averaging 15.5 PPG, 6.6 APG and 1.9 SPG on the year. Outside of Dragic though, the Suns will need somebody to step it up and be their long-term second option. Four Phoenix players are averaging between 11.5 PPG and 12.7 PPG this year. C Marcin Gortat should be that guy, but he has been underperforming, likely due to the departure of Steve Nash. Gortat has been better recently though with 14.3 PPG on 68% FG in the past three games. Michael Beasley (11.5 PPG) is averaging only 8.8 PPG and 2.8 RPG over the past five games. He is the player that Phoenix team officials thought could be their main scoring option, but he is only shooting 38% FG (well below 45% FG for career). He has been a huge disappointed and is now getting only 27.8 MPG on the year.

NBA TNT doubleheader: Knicks at Heat, Mavericks at Suns
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

New York Knicks at Miami Heat (-7, 202)

The Miami Heat and New York Knicks know a thing or two about winning at home. After all, the Eastern Conference leaders collectively have won all 15 such contests this season. The Heat, who are 8-0 at AmericanAirlines Arena, will have the home-court advantage on Thursday, when the Knicks pay a visit for a nationally televised game.

The Heat likely are still massaging their ego after woe-begotten Washington doubled its season win total at their expense. New York extended its winning streak to four games on Wednesday as J.R. Smith drilled a step-back jumper as time expired for a 100-98 triumph over Charlotte. Carmelo Anthony finished with 23 points before receiving stitches on the middle finger of his left hand after diving into the bench to save a loose ball. His status for Thursday is unknown, however, head coach Mike Woodson did tell reporters, “He’s going to play. He’ll be ready to play."

TV: 8 p.m. ET, TNT

ABOUT THE KNICKS (13-4, 11-6 ATS): Coach Mike Woodson insisted after Wednesday's contest that Anthony would be able to play versus Miami. The electric forward cooled off the Heat with a team-high 30 points and 10 rebounds in New York's 104-84 victory on Nov. 2. As for Wednesday, Jason Kidd returned following a four-game absence due to lower back spasms. The veteran guard came off the bench to score seven points but logged nearly 25 1/2 minutes to provide a jolt for the Knicks.

ABOUT THE HEAT (12-4, 7-9 ATS): The inexplicable loss to Washington snapped a six-game winning streak for Miami. LeBron James did his best to put the setback in perspective, although his pair of missed 3-point attempts in the waning moments could have altered the outcome. Dwyane Wade insisted that the Heat will have no problem getting up for Thursday's tilt. "It'll be a good game for us," Wade said. "It's a game that we all look forward to. Obviously, we want to play better, and it's a good time for it (facing the Knicks)."

TRENDS:

* Under is 10-2-1 in the last 13 meetings.
* Home team is 5-1 ATS in the last six meetings.
* Favorite is 6-2 ATS in the last eight meetings.
* Knicks are 2-6 ATS in the last eight meetings.
* Knicks are 0-4 ATS in the last four meetings in Miami.

BUZZER BEATERS:

1. New York is off to its best 17-game start to a season since the 1995-96 campaign. It also was 13-4 during that campaign.

2. Wade had 15 points on 7-of-10 shooting from the field in the teams' first meeting. While it's an impressive performance to be certain, Wade has averaged 27.9 points in 25 career games versus New York.

3. The Knicks played their fourth game without C Marcus Camby, who is being plagued by plantar fasciitis in his left foot.



Dallas Mavericks at Phoenix Suns (-3, 199.5)

The Dallas Mavericks try to shake off an awful start to their road trip Thursday, when they take on the Phoenix Suns at US Airways Center. Dallas began its three-game trek Wednesday in Los Angeles, where it thoroughly was thrashed in a 112-90 loss to the Clippers. The Mavericks never led as they allowed the first seven points of the game and fell behind by as many as 24 late in the fourth quarter.

Phoenix returns home from a 1-5 road trip during which it lost the last four contests. After splitting the first two games of the trek, the Suns suffered a 40-point loss in Detroit on Nov. 28. They dropped close decisions in Toronto and New York before concluding the trip with a 10-point overtime setback to the league-leading Grizzlies in Memphis on Tuesday. Phoenix led by as many as 16 points before Rudy Gay forged a 94-94 tie with 15.9 seconds remaining in regulation.

TV: 10:30 p.m. ET, FSN Southwest (Dallas), TNT

ABOUT THE MAVERICKS (8-10, 7-11 ATS): Dallas trailed by 11 points after one quarter in Los Angeles on Wednesday but began the second with a 9-0 run to get within 29-27. That was as close as the Mavericks would get as they were down 18 points at halftime and never got the deficit to single digits in the second half. Guard O.J. Mayo entered the game against the Clippers second in the league with a 52.7 percent shooting efficiency from beyond the arc, went 0-of-4 and has gone without a 3-pointer in three of his last five contests.

ABOUT THE SUNS (7-12, 6-12-1 ATS): Phoenix has not had much success against Dallas of late, losing eight of the last nine meetings between the teams. In fact, the Suns snapped an eight-game skid in the all-time series in their last encounter as they posted a 96-94 triumph at US Airways Center on March 12. It was the team's second win in the last 13 matchups and snapped its three-game home losing streak against the Mavericks. Center Marcin Gortat has started 96 consecutive games and appeared in all 140 contests since being acquired by the Suns from Orlando on Dec. 18, 2010.

TRENDS:

* Favorite is 9-1 ATS in the last 10 meetings.
* Mavericks are 8-1 ATS in the last nine meetings.
* Under is 5-1 in the last six meetings.
* Home team is 4-1 ATS in the last five meetings.
* Over is 8-3 in the last 11 meetings in Phoenix.

BUZZER BEATERS:

1. Gortat leads the Suns with six double-doubles.

2. Mavericks rookie F Jae Crowder is 3-of-26 from the field over his last four games.

3. The Suns have trailed by double digits in 15 of their 19 contests this season.

Dallas Mavericks: Already missing star Dirk Nowitzki since the start of the season, the Mavs (9-10 straight-up, 8-11 against the spread) came out of Thursday's win and cover at Phoenix with a couple more injury concerns. Chris Kaman, the team's second-leading scorer at 13.7 points per game, suffered a sprained left ankle while Shawn Marion, Dallas' leading rebounder (7.1 rebounds per game), went down with a groin injury. Both players are questionable for Saturday's tilt in Houston, and it could open the door for Brandan Wright to start at center with rookie Jae Crowder possibly replacing Marion at forward (click to check updated NBA injury report). The Mavericks are 3-7 on the NBA highway so far, covering the spread in four of the 10 away games. This marks the first game against a divisional opponent for the Mavs. Dallas won and covered all three games vs. the Rockets last season, including a 101-99 win at Toyota Center as a 3-point underdog.

Houston Rockets: Friday night finds the Rockets (9-8 SU, 9-7-1 ATS) in San Antonio for the front end of this back-to-back. The Spurs were laying 8½ in that contest with a 212-point total. Houston was riding a two-game winning streak into that matchup, both SU and ATS, winning and covering five of its last six heading into the clash with San Antonio. The Rockets came away with a 107-105 win over the Lakers on Tuesday in a game that closed as a Pick 'em and fell a bit shy of the 215½-point total. Houston shot under 38 percent for the contest, but the bench bailed the Bayou City ballers out by outscoring LA's reserves 59-20. James Harden shot a woeful 3-for-19 vs. the Lakers and suffered a injury to his right big toe, but he was expected to play against the Spurs on Friday. Houston is 7-3 at home so far, also covering seven of the 10 games, including the last five at Toyota Center.
