Game Thread: Los Angeles Lakers at Dallas Mavericks

US PRESSWIRE

The Mavericks and the Lakers square off in a nationally televised showdown of the two most disappointing teams in the NBA this year.

Loading Scores

WHO: The hated Los Angeles Lakers

WHAT: Show up or shut up.

WHERE: American Airlines Center, Dallas, TX

WHEN: 12:00 p.m. CST

HOW: ESPN

THE STORY: If the Mavericks want to make anything out of this season, now's the time. They're coming off of a couple wins, Dirk finally looks at full-strength, and they're getting consistent production out of their Mayo-Collison backcourt -- not to mention Vince Carter furthering his 6th man of the year campaign.

Dallas and LA are easily the two most disappointing teams in the NBA. There's going to be nothing easy about facing off against a team that's desperate to stay relevant -- the Mavericks will have to show they're more desperate.
