The Dallas Mavericks are looking for their sixth straight win as they host the New York Knicks on March 9. Luka Doncic is unstoppable right now and has the Mavericks playing their best basketball as the season enters the stretch run.
The Knicks have disappointed this season after making the playoffs a year ago, but they have won two straight coming into Wednesday’s game at the American Airlines Center. Dallas native Julius Randle is coming off a 46-point performance, and he always puts on a show in front of his home crowd.

Dallas Mavericks vs. New York Knicks: Injury report
The Mavs ruled out Tim Hardaway Jr. (foot), Frank Ntilikina (illness), Marquese Chriss (knee), and Theo Pinson (finger). Jalen Brunson is listed as questionable on the NBA’s official injury report with a foot injury, but there was optimism after Tuesday’s practice that JB would be able to return after just a one-game absence.
The Knicks ruled out Nerlens Noel (foot), Derrick Rose (ankle), Cam Reddish (shoulder), Quentin Grimes (knee), Obi Toppin (hamstring), Kemba Walker (not with team), and Luka Samanic (G League) for Wednesday’s game. Mitchell Robinson is listed as questionable with an illness.

Dallas Mavericks vs. New York Knicks odds, spread, over/under
According to WynnBet, the Mavericks are 8.0-point favorites as they host the New York Knicks on March 9. They are minus-360 on the moneyline, and the game’s over/under sits at 215.5.
The line for Luka to grab 45-plus points plus rebounds sits at plus-120. He had 51 in the Mavericks win over the Jazz, and the 23-year-old superstar needs to takeover more on the glass as the team goes small.
Dallas Mavericks vs. New York Knicks predictions
The Knicks dominated the first matchup of the season back on Jan. 12, and they have had the Mavericks number during Luka’s tenure in Dallas. The Mavs have won just two of their last seven meetings against the Knicks and have not defeated them in Dallas since Jan. 25, 2017.
Luka Doncic changes that against the shorthanded Knicks on Wednesday night. He goes for a 32-point triple-double to lift the Mavericks to a hard-fought victory. Julius Randle scores 35 for the Knicks as New York falls just short at the AAC.
The Dallas Mavericks have just 17 games left in the regular season, and they all count as the team looks to move up in the standings. Expect Luka to put on a show as he attempts to make it six straight wins for the Mavs. Do not miss it.
