(NBA) Dallas vs. Charlotte, 01/13/2021 7:00 PM, Score: 104 - 93
Point Spread: 4.50 | -115.00 Charlotte (Home)
Result: Loss
Both sides are playing great and while the return of Porzingis might give Dallas a lift it likely won’t help Dallas win this game. Charlotte has a healthy and hot Hayward plus Ball coming off of the bench and the Mavericks will have a tough time dealing with either of them plus Graham and Rozier getting it done. Dallas is a better shooting team but the Hornets defense is starting to show up and has held teams below 107.5 points in three of their last five games. It will also take a few games for Porzingis to get his legs back and in the flow. I will take Charlotte in this one.
