Where: American Airlines Center, Dallas, TX

When: Friday, November 8, 8:30 PM. ET.

The Dallas Mavericks will be going for their third consecutive win when they take on the New York Knicks on Friday night.

Knicks Trying To Snap Four-Game Losing Streak

The Knicks have played better on the defensive end, holding opponents to 110.4 points per game, which is 15th in the league. With the Mavericks having a high-scoring offense, they will need to play well defensively to give themselves a chance to get the win.

Mavericks Going For Second Consecutive Win Over Knicks

The Mavericks won their last meeting against the Knicks last season and will try to pick up another win over New York when they meet for the first time this season on Friday. Kristaps Porzingis, who was traded to the Mavericks last season and missed their last game, will get his first chance to punish his former team on Friday night.

The Mavericks are one of the best offensive teams in the league, averaging 115.3 points per game, which is sixth in the league. The team is shooting 45.3 percent from the field and 35.4 percent from three-point range.

Luka Doncic leads the Mavericks with 26.7 points, 9.9 rebounds, and 9.1 assists per game. Porzingis is averaging 19 points and 8.1 rebounds per game, while J.J. Barea is averaging 11 points and three assists per game.

The Mavericks have also played well on the defensive end and are holding opponents to 111.3 points per game. They held the Orlando Magic to 106 points in their last game and will need another solid defensive effort to get past the Knicks.
