Dallas Mavericks DFS Notes

Kristaps Porzingis (right knee soreness) is doubtful for Tuesday vs. Miami. This will end up being his third straight game on the shelf due to his troublesome right knee. Maxi Kleber (Achilles) is questionable, so Dorian Finney-Smith will offer mid-round upside and the Mavs will need Dwight Powell to pick up some minutes.

Miami Heat DFS Notes

Jimmy Butler flirted with a triple-double during Sunday's win over the Hornets, tallying 18 points, eight rebounds, eight assists, one steal and one block over 28 minutes. Butler was locked in from the jump, only missing once through the first half of action, and he finished 5-of-8 from the field and 8-of-9 at the line. He didn’t commit a single turnover while he was out there, and he finished the game with a team-best, plus/minus rating of plus-14. Bam Adebayo also had an uber-efficient evening, going 9-of-13 from the floor and 2-of-3 at the stripe for 20 points, seven rebounds, 10 assists, one steal and three turnovers across 34 minutes in the win.

Mavericks vs. Heat Game Prediction

The Mavericks are 0-4-1 against the spread in their last five games in Miami and are 1-5-1 against the number in their last seven games versus the Heat overall.

The Heat, meanwhile, are 5-1-1 against the spread in their last seven games after allowing 100 points or more in their previous game and are 6-2-1 against the number in their last nine games overall.
