Washington @ Dallas
Current Records: Washington 12-7; Dallas 10-7
What to Know
The Washington Wizards are 3-9 against the Dallas Mavericks since December of 2015, but they’ll have a chance to close the gap a little bit Saturday. Washington might have tired legs after a contest yesterday as they head on the road against Dallas at 8:30 p.m. ET Nov. 27 at American Airlines Center. If the game is anything like the Mavericks’ 125-124 win from their previous meeting in May, the scorekeeper will be kept real busy.
On Friday, the Wizards narrowly escaped with a victory as the squad sidled past the Oklahoma City Thunder 101-99. Shooting guard Bradley Beal (20 points) and small forward Kentavious Caldwell-Pope (20 points) were the top scorers for Washington.
Meanwhile, it may have taken overtime to finish the job, but Dallas ultimately got the result they were hoping for on Tuesday with a 112-104 win over the Los Angeles Clippers. It was another big night for Dallas’ power forward Kristaps Porzingis, who had 30 points in addition to seven rebounds.
Washington is expected to lose this next one by 7.5. They have failed bettors playing the spread in their past three games, so buyers beware.
Their wins bumped the Wizards to 12-7 and the Mavericks to 10-7. Watch the matchup and check back on CBS Sports to find out who keeps up the positive energy and who hits a stumbling block.
