Preview

Golden State Warrior vs Dallas Mavericks Prediction, Betting Tips and Preview of the match for the NBA Basketball Game on Saturday February 6th, 2021.

The Golden State Warriors will try to maintain near perfection against a motivated opponent when looking for a two-game sweep over host Dallas Mavericks on Saturday night.

The under-sized and injury-plagued Warriors out-shot and surprisingly out-rebounded the Mavericks in a break of 147-116 in the first game of three days and two games Thursday.

With Golden State forced to play small with all three centers and the main backup forward injured, Kelly Oubre Jr. responded best at the fastest pace with 40 points, his career-best.

Oubre, who started the season missing his first 17 3-pointers and 27 of his first 28, made seven 3-pointers in 10 attempts against the Mavericks. Golden State shot 51.2 percent (22 of 43) from beyond the arc and 57.3 percent overall as a team.

Led by Oubre and Juan Toscano-Anderson, the Warriors also had 45 rebounds, three more than the Mavericks, whose starting center, 7-foot-3-inch Kristaps Porzingis, had an eight-inch lead over Golden State's tallest player. .

Run TMC was the nickname given to the Golden State team led by Tim Hardaway (T), Mitch Richmond (M) and Chris Mullin (C) that surprised the Mavericks, the first seeds, in the playoffs of the 2007 NBA.

Arguably, Thursday's result was just as shocking. Stephen Curry added 28 points and Andrew Wiggins 18 as the nine Warriors who equipped got into the act of scoring.

Toscano-Anderson, a two-way player who hadn't been active or seen action in 14 of the team's 16 previous games, was pressured into a starting role and excelled, supplementing his 14 points with efforts that tied his career in rebounding. with eight, assists with five and blocks with two.

The 6-foot-6 player for the Mexican national team rebounded Porzingis, 8-5.

The Warriors could have one of their injured players, second-team forward Eric Paschall, back for a rematch. He missed Thursday's game with a swollen right knee.

Dallas, which was playing its second game in two nights, kept up with the Warriors by making 18 of their first 36 3-point attempts. But reality finally settled in for the worst 3-point shooting club in the NBA, and their 2-for-14 finish helped Golden State pull away in the end.

Porzingis finished with 25 points, 15 of them on triples. He attempted only eight shots inside the arc, making four.

Luka Doncic, a 6-7 point guard as tall as Golden State's tallest player, led Dallas with 27 points but was bullied and committed five turnovers.

The clubs were meeting in Dallas for the first time since the Mavericks took a similar thrashing to the Warriors, 142-94, early last season.

Dallas swept through last year's three-game season series by an average of 31.7 points.
