Will Jrue Holiday replicate his monstrous 26 point performance in the last game’s loss to the Oklahoma-City Thunder?
Dallas Mavericks are coming off a 114-100 home win over the Los-Angeles Lakers. Luka Doncic was solid with 27 points (10-of-23 from the field), 10 assists and 9 rebounds.
Justin Jackson contributed 15 points (6-of-10 shooting). The Pelicans will want to move on from the 104-107 loss at home to the Thunder, a game in which Jrue Holiday had 26 points (10-of-19 shooting).
Pelicans have lost the last meeting between the teams at home. The Pels are in a slump losing all of their last 5 games.
Mavs will attempt to keep their momentum going having won 4 games out of their last 5. Both teams will be featuring their full lineups with no crucial players sitting out the contest.
Mavericks are much better at free throw shooting than the Pelicans; they rank No. 5 in free throws made, while the Pelicans rank just No. 24. Mavericks had just one day between this game and their previous match. The Pelicans next couple of matchups are home vs PHX, away vs DAL, home vs DET.
