New Orleans Pelicans vs Dallas Mavericks Prediction & Match Preview – December 3rd, 2021 | NBA Season 2021-22
The New Orleans Pelicans and Dallas Mavericks continue their two-game mini-series at American Airlines Center on Friday. Dallas drubbed New Orleans a few days ago, and will look to add to the Pelicans’ misery.
Coach Willie Green’s team has been playing pretty well in their last few games, but they were absolutely pummeled by the Dallas Mavericks. The New Orleans Pelicans looked helpless as they watched Luka Doncic work his magic in the first quarter. New Orleans was down 41-23 at the end of the first quarter, and things only got worse from there.
Coming out with aggressiveness and focus will be critical for the New Orleans Pelicans on the Dallas Mavericks’ home court. Otherwise, they could suffer yet another blowout loss.
The Dallas Mavericks are just 2-5 in their last seven games, including a thrashing of the New Orleans Pelicans in their last game. Prior to their last win, they were out of sync, especially in their loss to the Cleveland Cavaliers.
To be fair, they have faced the Phoenix Suns and LA Clippers twice, and the Washington Wizards and Cavaliers once. All of these teams have played solidly so far, so you would expect the Mavericks to have a tough time against them. The team just played more than many expected.
Another game against the New Orleans Pelicans could be just what the Dallas Mavericks need right now.

Pelicans vs Mavericks game prediction.
Unless the New Orleans Pelicans can make a leap in quality defensive performance, they could be run out of the building by the Dallas Mavericks. New Orleans has five players averaging double digits in scoring. But that might not be enough to make up for their abysmal ability to keep opponents from scoring.
