AM: What’s your final prediction for how this game will play out?

JK: The Mavericks haven’t been great on their home floor this season but they’ve won three straight at the American Airlines Center and I think that continues Monday. I think it’ll be a fun, competitive game, but Milwaukee just doesn’t have the fire power to get the win.

The Bucks struggle a little bit defending the perimeter and Dallas has been hot from outside as of late, shooting 39% from three-point range their last seven contests. I think that’s the difference in this one. I’ll say 103-97, Mavs.
