Mavs vs Hawks
The Mavericks managed to pull out the win in Rajon Rondo`s debut game, but it was not easy. The Spurs were leading for most of the game although they played without all of their starting lineup. Like we predicted, the Mavs roster changes will take some time adjust and they will have some early struggles before they adjust to Rondo and Rondo starts to understand how the Mavs offense works. The fact that the Mavs won that game really just covers the obvious problems they had offensively for 90% of the time.
The Hawks are quietly flying under the radar, like they are used to. With a record of 19-7 they are the second seed in the Eastern Conference and they have been playing an excellent basketball as of late. The Hawks have won 12 of their last 13 games and their last 3 wins have been really impressive (CHI, @CLE and @LAC). Leaving out the 1-point away game loss the Hawks got in Orlando, they have been winning games with comfortable margins.
It will be a game between a team playing their best basketball at the moment and a team that still has to figure some things out before they can do that. The Hawks can even win this game straight up, but we are happy to take the points. Take the Hawks to cover +4 points @1.952 with 2/5 units.
