The Dallas Mavericks return home to face the defending NBA champion Golden State Warriors on Jan. 13 in a battle of Western Conference foes.

The Dallas Mavericks are heading back home riding a two-game winning streak. Running it to three will not easy as the defending champion Golden State Warriors visit Dallas on Sunday evening.

The Dubs are also running hot. They have won three straight and five of their last six. The Warriors feature an outstanding lineup with four All-Stars in the starting five. DeMarcus Cousins is working his way back to make it all five.

Both Klay Thompson and Steph Curry have been shooting lights out in recent games. That goes without mentioning Kevin Durant and Draymond Green who are perhaps the best scorer and defender in the NBA respectively. The Mavs have their work cut out for them on Sunday.

In their last six games, the Warriors leading scorer has scored over 30 points. That includes two 40-plus point contests as well. Golden State has scored at least 115 points in each of those six games.

The Mavericks and star Luka Doncic are both going to have to keep pace with the Warriors stellar offense. Doncic has 27 points or more in three straight games. He needs to keep pace with the Dubs top scorer on Sunday for the Mavs to remain in the game.

Dallas has scored 115 points or more in one of their last five contests. Keeping pace with the Warriors high octane offense is not going to be easy. That is atop the Mavs keys to victory list against Golden State.

Final thoughts

The Dallas Mavericks host the Golden State Warriors on Jan. 13. The Dubs are one of the most exciting teams to watch in the NBA, so tuning in should be a must this evening.

Keeping DeAndre Jordan on the floor could be difficult for the Mavs this evening. The Warriors love to play small, and that creates a matchup nightmare for Jordan. He struggles guarding on the perimeter. Keep an eye on Jordan’s minutes and production against the Dubs.
