The Dallas Mavericks are looking for their fourth straight win and a season series sweep of the Toronto Raptors on Jan. 19. Superstar Luka Doncic narrowly missed a triple-double as the Mavs picked up a 103-95 win in Toronto in the second game of the regular season back in October, and Dallas wants to stay hot on Wednesday night.
The Raptors have lost three of their last four games as they continue to fight for playoff position. Toronto is currently ninth in the East, but just four games separate sixth and tenth in the conference. Every contest matters for the Raptors, so expect an exciting contest at the American Airlines Center.
Here is a look at how fans can watch, the odds, and so much more on Wednesday night’s game.
