The below betting preview is from a March 2011 meeting between these two teams...

The Knicks travel to Dallas to battle the Mavericks on Thursday. This is the second meeting between these teams this season, as Dallas defeated the Knicks at MSG in February.

The Knicks have come alive since acquiring Carmelo Anthony at the trading deadline. New York is 6-3 since the trade, 5-1 against teams .500 or better, with two of the losses coming against the Cavaliers. The Knicks currently own the best record ATS both overall and on the road this season. They are 39-22 overall ATS and have won three straight and six of their past seven ATS. They are 23-8 ATS on the road, and have won six of their past seven road games ATS. Carmelo Anthony scored 31 points and hit the game-winning FG with five-tenths of a seconds remaining on Wednesday to help the Knicks defeat the Grizzlies. The Knicks were without Chauncey Billups for a fifth straight game on Wednesday and his status for Thursday is unknown. Amar’e Stoudemire added 26 on Wednesday, marking the fifth time that Anthony and Stoudemire each scored at least 25 points in the nine games since they have been together. Anthony torched the Mavericks for 42 points as a Nugget on February 10 in a game Denver won by one point.   

Dallas has lost two of three since winning 18 of its previous 19 games. The Mavs sit second in the Western Conference, a half-game ahead of the Lakers. They are 34-28 ATS this season, and have lost four straight games ATS overall. Dirk Nowitzki is averaging 26.0 PPG over his past six games, while shooting 59.6% from the field. Shawn Marion left Wednesday’s loss against New Orleans after hurting his ribs on a flagrant foul by the Hornets' Marco Belinelli. X-rays were negative on Marion, who expects to play Thursday. Dallas also played without Peja Stojakovic (back spasms) but got Tyson Chandler back from a sprained right ankle. The status of Stojakovic is unknown for Thursday. Nowitzki is averaging 26.0 PPG over his past 18 meetings against the Knicks, and scored 29 points with 11 rebounds in the Mavs win over New York earlier this season.

Dallas has won 16 of the past 18 meetings, including 9-of-10 at Dallas. However, the Knicks have discovered themselves with the acquisition of Anthony. Their offense, which was already potent before the trade, is shooting 53.1 percent from the field in their past five games, and 46.9 percent from behind the arc over that span.
