Heat vs Mavericks NBA Betting Preview and Prediction
NBA Regular Season
Miami Heat (5-1, 2-1 Away) vs. Dallas Mavericks (4-2, 3-0 Home)

Heat vs Mavericks Injury Report
OUT: Max Strus, Victor Oladipo
QUES: Bam Adebayo (knee)
OUT: Maxi Kleber
QUES: Kristaps Porzingis (back)
The Heat have been one of the best defensive teams in the NBA this season, and they will show tonight that defense travels. Bam Adebayo was a full participant in Monday’s shootaround, so look for the Heat to essentially be fully healthy for tonight’s matchup.
The Mavericks, on the other hand, have been playing without Kristaps Porzingis, and he is questionable yet again tonight. With Maxi Kleber already ruled out, this weak frontcourt could be made even thinner, creating a great mismatch for Miami. For Dallas to win, they must have someone other than Luka Doncic step up on the offensive end of the floor.
