The Dallas Mavericks have had somewhat of a turbulent season. The team stated off well on a 24-5 start, but fell to a six-game losing streak after key player Dirk Nowitzki sprained his knee in late December. Although the team flailed slightly when he returned, it looks like the Mavs are back to winning. They extended their current win streak to six games with a victory on Wednesday over the New York Knicks. Dallas’ defense stepped up in the third and took the lead. Las Vegas odds.

The Texans stayed tight on both ends of the court to take a 113-97 win over the Knicks in regulation time for their fifth consecutive triumph in N.Y.

The Mavericks [33-15] learned a valuable lesson after losing Nowitzki and Caron Butler: missing players or not, a strong defense is just as important as a complete offense. Sports scores.

That lesson was reapplied on Wednesday, as they are still without Butler. Focusing on a strict defense, Dallas refused to let the Knicks through and opened up he stage for offense. Nowitzki finished with 29 points, 11 rebounds and 3 assists, while Tyson Chandler had 15 points and 11 rebounds for a double-double. Jose Juan Barea also did well, contributing 22 points, 3 rebounds and 3 assists. The Mavs finished with 50 percent shooting to move within a half-game of second place in the Western Conference. Basketball betting lines.

The Knicks might have owned the first quarter, but a limited offense and porous defense led to a 16-point loss in the end. Coach Mike D’Antoni admitted after the game, “I thought we ran out of steam for whatever reason. We ran out of good plays.” It was as simple as that.
