Kudos to the Mavericks for ending the Bucks' 18-game win streak on Monday despite not having superstar Luka Doncic. The Mavericks achieved that distinction on the road. They are a much improved team. But they are not as good as Boston especially without Doncic, who remains out with an ankle injury.
The Celtics are on a two-game losing streak with losses to the Pacers and 76ers. Boston has had five days to think about those defeats. The Celtics haven't lost three in a row all season. Expect Brad Stevens to have the rested Celtics super ready to square off against Dallas. Boston is 10-4-1 ATS the last 15 times they've been on the road facing an above .500 home team.
