GAME THREAD: Dallas Mavericks at Toronto Raptors

Jerome Miron-US PRESSWIRE

Losing to Boston in double overtime was demoralizing, but fortunately the Mavericks have a great opportunity to recover from the defeat against the second worst team in the league, the Raptors.

Loading Scores

WHO: The Dallas Mavericks travel north of the border to face the Toronto Raptors.

WHAT: Following a frustrating double overtime loss to Boston, the Mavericks try to rebound and keep their record from falling under .500 against a 4-19 Toronto team.

WHERE: Air Canada Centre, Toronto, ON

WHEN: 6:00 pm CT

WHY: It's the fifth "w" question word, but Lisa always leaves it out and I bet it gets lonely. I'm all for equal representation, so voila!

HOW: TSN | FSSW

THE STORY: The Mavericks aren't thriving, but they're surviving without superstar Dirk Nowitzki. The same can't be said for Toronto, missing key players Andrea Bargnani and Kyle Lowry. Their 4-19 record is second worst in the league. They are playing just their 9th home game (24th total) have lost 12 of their last 13 games. After a season-high 28 turnovers, the Mavericks will look to play with more focus and better care of the ball. The Mavericks won the previous meeting with the Raptors this season, with Mayo and Kaman each putting up 17 points.
