The Mavericks have experienced the unfortunate coincidence of having a rusty Dirk return while playing a brutal 6 game stretch against Miami, Memphis, OKC, SAx2 and Denver. All teams with a legitimate shot of going very deep in the playoffs.

So now they face the Wizards. Relief. 

Though the Wiz have played tougher at home and kept games close, I don't like the situation or the matchups for them tonight. Not to mention Dallas' motivation to get a W. 

I am not sure of Jordan Crawford's status, but except for center, I give the edge to Dallas at every other spot.
Collison has been playing better since Fisher's departure and matches up well, even if Crawford is playing. O.J. Mayo is much better than Beal or Temple. 
The frontcourt matchups could get ugly for the Wiz as Kaman, Carter, Dirk, Marion, Wright and Brand can all score and only Nene and Okafor are above average defenders.

The Wiz remain the worst offensive team in the league in terms of offensive efficiency, effective FG%, and ppg. They are the 2nd worst 3 pt. shooting team

I am on the Mavs -4. Good luck to all.

Would you lean U192 as well? 95-85 score seems about right.

I like Mavs and the UNDER too.  

Going to buy Collison's props too.  This kids is heading upwards while his stats are still fairly low.

The total is very tough for me to read, to be honest.

The Wiz have scored more than 94 points in only 6 of 30 games this year(in regulation). Their offense is just a mess. 
Dallas' offense has also been nightmarish with Dirk's return. I don't think Carlisle has figured out a smooth rotation yet. But will it matter tonight against a Wizards team that does not match up well, imo?

On the other hand, both teams are on the 1st leg of a B2B, so defense may be softer. The Wiz are 7-0 at or over this total, at home, against the top 15 teams in pace. Dallas is 3rd in pace. Also, the Mavs can be rather porous defensively and have given up 100 points in 20 of 31 games. Can the Wizards extremely crappy offense take advantage of a lenient Dallas D? If Crawford plays, it's possible.

It could go either way with the total. Too tough for me to make a lean, but good luck if you take the under Train.

fantastic analysis.  i'm on new orleans and clips.  i believe crawford will play, according to the washington post article.  i only like to play two games mask.  i had a huge lean on washington; cause they have played well yesterday.  and your right washington has a decided edge at center.  your point about the rough dallas schedule was insightful.  the only caveat is dallas hasn't even shown up in these past two games.  i like washington, but am laying off.  good luck.  dallas might be like boston-- AS BAD AS THEY APPEAR!!!!  no kidd, no barea, no chandler, no deshawn.  they got dirk, marion and beaubois.  they're not dallas.  they're an amalgamation of veterans on the downside.  but this game will tell us if they're anywhere near above average.  boston had trouble in washington.  nene is a beast at present; and it appears that he's lit a fire under seraphin.  garret temple could be an amazing signing.  i look forward to this one.  and for your sake, i hope dallas wins by 25.

I have no faith in the Wiz nation, and their potential to put anything together like a winning streak.  Based on the above comments and local info, I am taking the under, feel the Wiz might up for this game, and will cover, but find another way to lose.  Just a gut feeling.

Currently passing.  Situational analysis with Dallas facing Miami tomorrow argues Dallas but trend analysis points to Washington.  GL

Could be. 

The obvious talent difference between these 2 squads is not a trap though.

Thinking like that is why you will never win.

I believe a win tonight is more important for Dallas as they likely are cognizant they have little chance of victory tomorrow. Just get back some rhythm. No one better to do it against than the Wiz.
 
Possibly being on a 8 game losing streak, after tomorrow, could make Cuban do something drastic.
