The Mavericks leading scorer Luka Doncic is questionable for Wednesday's matchup with the Nuggets. Without the leading scorer in the lineup, the Mavericks will be short handed on the offensive end against a very tough Nuggets defense. This matchup features a battle between two big men when Denver’s Nikola Jokic faces off against Dallas’ Kristaps Porzingis. The advantage here goes to the Nuggets due to the all-around game of Jokic. Final Score Prediction, Denver Nuggets win and cover ATS 112-104.
