What you need to know about the Cavaliers

On Sunday, Cleveland earned a 114-105 win over the Washington Wizards. Multiple players turned in solid performances to lead the Cavs to victory, but perhaps none more so than Caris LeVert, who dropped a double-double on 18 points and 12 rebounds. The team also got some help courtesy of Evan Mobley, who scored 21 points to go along with six rebounds and five blocks.

Cleveland has now gone 19-4 straight-up over its last 23 games, and the defense has spurred it to many of those victories. The Cavs rank second in both points allowed per game and defensive rating with the twin tower duo of Jarrett Allen and Mobley controlling the paint. On offense, Donovan Mitchell is having his best all-around season, averaging 28.1 points to go along with career-highs in rebounds (5.4), assists (6.2), steals (1.9) and blocks (0.5). See which team to pick here.

What you need to know about the Mavericks

Meanwhile, after a string of seven wins, the Mavericks' good fortune finally ran out on Sunday. They ended up on the wrong side of a bruising 133-111 walloping at the hands of the Indiana Pacers. The match pitted two of the league's most dominant guards against one another in Luka Doncic and Tyrese Haliburton. Haliburton had a solid game and dropped a double-double on 17 points and 10 assists, while Doncic did his best for the losing side, scoring 33 points to go along with six assists and six rebounds.

Dallas went 6-2 against the spread over this eight-game stretch to pull the team over the .500 ATS mark for the season. In addition to Doncic and Kyrie Irving, Dallas has gotten great contributions from its new acquisitions in Daniel Gafford and PJ Washington. Acquired at the trade deadline, the two are combining for nearly 20 points per game and 15 rebounds per game. See which team to pick here.
