GIMMIE I WANT - Matthew Emmons-US PRESSWIRE
The Mavericks are out in Portland to start their all-important road trip.
WHAT: The chase for the 8 seed..?
WHERE: Rose Garden, Portland, OR
WHEN: 9:00pm CT
HOW: FSSW | NBALP
THE STORY: Dallas hasn't exactly been stellar on the road so far this season. This upcoming road trip is incredibly important if the Mavericks want to avoid missing the playoffs for the first time in over a decade. The Blazers have been having turnover issues, which could prove advantageous to the transition-heavy Dallas offense. Chris Kaman bumped his head (wtf...) so he's probably not playing tonight. Other than that, all systems go (except for Jared Cunningham, who got sent back down to Frisco). Be sure to visit the always stellar Blazers Edge.
Let's go MAVS!
