WHO: The Dallas Mavericks head east to face the Boston Celtics.

WHAT: For the first time since his Atlanta days, the Mavericks will have to prepare to play against Jason Terry, rather than with him. He became a Celtic this off-season after eight years with the Mavericks, including the 2011 championship.

WHERE: TD Garden, Boston, MA

WHEN: 7:00 pm CT

HOW: ESPN

THE STORY: The focus tonight will be on Jason Terry, and his return to a team he didn't want to leave. Although he has a diminished role in Boston's offense, production has been pretty solid from the 13-year veteran. He's averaging 11.4 points a game while shooting 46% from the field and 38% from deep. In Dallas, all focus is on O.J. Mayo, who was suppose to replace Terry as the Mavericks' second scorer. With Dirk's injury, though, Mayo has taken over the primary offensive duties and is averaging 27.3 points on 58% shooting in his last three games, all wins. It will be interesting to see how the two players clash.
