After getting off to a blazing hot start in 2017, the Dallas Mavericks look to continue streaking versus Damian Lillard and the Portland Trail Blazers.
The Dallas Mavericks are surging lately after a poor start to the season, winning 8 of their last 11 and 3 in a row. Thanks to Dirk Nowitzki‘s solid play at center and the discovery of Yogi Ferrell, the Mavs are looking like a team that could sneak into the 8th seed of the playoffs.
The Portland Trail Blazers have also been playing better as of late, winning half of their last 10 including a convincing win over the Hornets on Tuesday. Damian Lillard has been on a tear after getting snubbed for the All-Star game yet again, and C.J. McCollum is still shooting at a very high clip.
