GAME THREAD: Dallas Mavericks at Miami Heat

Half Man over Half Ostrich - USA TODAY Sports

There isn't quite the same excitement that once came with this match-up, that's for sure. But the Mavericks are coming off their first win in a while so maybe they'll carry that momentum.

WHO: The Miami Heat host the Dallas Mavericks

WHAT: The start of a new streak- undefeated in 2013! (?)

WHERE: American Airlines Arena, Miami, FL

WHEN: 6:30pm CT

HOW: FSSW | NBALP

THE STORY: In the last three games, the Miami Heat have lost to the Pisons and the Bucks, and needed overtime to beat the Magic. That doesn't mean they're any less dangerous for the Mavericks, but it does mean they're human. Dallas finally showed some spunk in their win over the lowly Wizards last night, so let's all hope that enthusiasm spills over into this rematch of the 2011 finals.
