The Mavericks are not just beating opponents lately, they’re throttling them.

[dfads params=’groups=63742&limit=1&return_javascript=0′]

A recent three game winning streak, which included the franchise’s largest win in history, has the Mavs feeling pretty good as they hit the road for a pair of games.  Their first test, the reeling Charlotte Hornets.  The Hornets come off a 1-3 road trip and are looking to right the ship at home where they’ve played some of their best basketball.

The Mavericks are averaging 109.5 points per game, which leads all teams.  Their most recent outburst included a 131 point performance which saw 8 players score in double figures.

At home, the Mavericks are averaging 115.7 points per game and are shooting 51.0 percent.

While they continue to play well at home, the road games have been a bit of a different story.  The Mavs are averaging 100.3 points per game away and see their shooting drop to 46.1 percent.

Rebounding will be a major key in Mondays matchup, as the Mavs are ranked near the bottom of the NBA in rebounding with just 39.8 boards per game (24th).

Not allowing PF Marvin Williams and C Al Jefferson to crash the offensive glass will be a big factor in determining the outcome of Mondays game.


Charlotte is at the opposite end of the spectrum when comparing them to the Mavericks.  The Hornets come in off one of their worst performances of the season, a 112-87 loss at Golden State.  The Hornets shot a poor 38.1 percent from the field and trailed from the 2nd quarter on.

The Hornets poor shooting lately could have something to do with the injuries piling up.  Kemba Walker, Lance Stephenson, and Marvin Williams are all dealing with problems.  While they try to fight through their respective injuries, Michael Kidd-Gilchrist and Gary Neal are both questionable for Mondays game.  Kidd-Gilchrist has been battling a foot issue, while Gary Neal left the Hornets last game with a concussion.

The brighter spots for the Hornets in this 2014 season have come on their home floor.  The Hornets are 3-1 at home and are averaging 98.8 points per game.

With the injury problems piling up, look for a healthy Al Jefferson to step up Monday and try to get the Hornets back on track.

While Dallas is in the midst of this scoring run, it seems fitting to take advantage of the over here.  The total is knocked down here because of the Hornets injuries, but with Charlotte returning home we can expect them to start playing better basketball.

Dallas 109, Charlotte 99

If all else fails, hopefully Dallas drops another 131 point showing.
