Predicting every game on the Dallas Mavericks schedule in November

Nov. 2 vs. Miami Heat: Loss

The Mavs won both meetings against the Heat last season, but Miami won the Kyle Lowry sweepstakes this summer over Dallas. This one goes down to the wire, but Luka Doncic and company fall to the Heat on a Jimmy Butler game-winner.

Nov. 3 at San Antonio Spurs: Win

Dallas gets back in the win column as they go to San Antonio on the second night of a back-to-back and grind out a victory over the rebuilding Spurs.

Nov. 6 vs. Boston Celtics: Win

The Mavs swept the Celtics last season and take full advantage of a few days of rest to pick up another win over Boston here. Luka drops 40 and Kristaps Porzingis has a monster double-double to propel Dallas.

Nov. 8 vs. New Orleans Pelicans: Win

The American Airlines Center is buzzing as Zion Williamson comes to Dallas. The Mavericks have won four straight home games versus New Orleans, and they make it five as Luka has a monster 30-point triple-double.

Nov. 10 at Chicago Bulls: Loss

The revamped Bulls hand the Mavs their third loss of the season as Zach LaVine gets white-hot and drops 42 points for Chicago.

Nov. 12 at San Antonio Spurs: Win

The Mavs take their third win of the early season over the Spurs as Kristaps Porzingis goes off for 30 points and four blocks.

Nov. 15 vs. Denver Nuggets: Win

The Nuggets host the Blazers on Nov. 14 before traveling to Dallas to play 24 hours later. Rest disparity plays a massive factor in the Mavericks grabbing the victory as Denver struggles to score in the fourth quarter.

Nov. 17 at Phoenix Suns: Loss

Phoenix has dominated the Mavs in recent years, and they are fresh off an NBA Finals run. Dallas plays well, but a Devin Booker game-winner propels the Suns to victory.

Nov. 19 at Phoenix Suns: Loss

The Suns sweep the two-game set and make it eight straight victories over Dallas in what turns into an off night for Luka Doncic and the Mavericks.

Nov. 21 at LA Clippers: Win

When Dallas faced the Clippers without Kawhi Leonard in a Sunday afternoon matinee in Los Angeles last season, the Mavericks won by 51 points. Things are not as bad this time, but Luka Doncic exacts some revenge with a 30-point triple-double in the victory.

Nov. 23 at LA Clippers: Loss

The Clippers even the set with a win on their home floor. It takes an incredible performance from Paul George to get the job done as LA increases the physicality on Luka in a down to the wire battle.

Nov. 27 vs. Washington Wizards: Win

The Wizards are on the second night of a back-to-back as they come into Dallas and get blown out by the Mavericks in the fourth quarter.

Nov. 29 vs. Cleveland Cavaliers: Win

Dallas has won six straight against the Cavaliers, which turns into seven to close out November. Expect a blowout on Nov. 29 because the closest margin of victory during the Mavericks winning streak over Cleveland is 13 points.

Dallas Mavericks record through November: 13-6
