The Dallas Mavericks and Charlotte Hornets will face off at the American Airlines Center on Monday night. It will be the first meeting this season between these two teams. The Dallas Mavericks are coming off a 19-point victory against the Oklahoma City Thunder without Luka Doncic, who was missed the last couple of games with a lingering left ankle injury.

"He continues to get treatment, and we'll see how he feels for Wednesday's game," Mavericks' head coach Jason Kidd said. The Mavericks will play host to the Los Angeles Lakers on Wednesday.

Luka Doncic is averaging 25.6 points, 8.0 rebounds, and 8.5 assists per game in 21 games played this season.

The Mavericks enter the contest with a 13-13 record and are currently seventh in the Western Conference, two games behind the Los Angeles Lakers for sixth.

As for the Charlotte Hornets are entering the game on Monday night with a 15-13 record and sit in eighth in the Eastern Conference. On Friday night, they are coming off a 124-123 victory against the Sacramento Kings. In addition, the Hornets have turned a lot of heads earlier this season with victories against the Golden State Warriors and Brooklyn Nets. Their buzz already has some NBA media members making a case for Miles Bridges to win the Most Improvement Award and possibly an All-Star appearance this season.

Pick One: Charlotte Hornets +2.5 [-110]

The Dallas Mavericks have had issues in the last few games where their three-point shooters have gone cold causing them to go 3-5 in their last eight games. I expect this to continue and I like the Hornets' chances to capitalize on the other end.

Pick Two: Charlotte Hornets OVER 216.5 Points (-110)

During their last seven out of eight games, the Hornets have gone over the total point line. Meanwhile, the Dallas Mavericks have not covered the spread in each of their seven last meeting against eastern conference opponents. You can see the game between the Mavericks and Hornets at 8:30pm on Bally Sports Southwest or on NBA League Pass.
