GAME THREAD: Dallas Mavericks vs. New York Knicks

Elsa

My Mavericks New Year's resolution was to play more teams from New York. Here's their chance!

Loading Scores

WHO: New York Knicks

WHAT: Could the Mavericks actually go undefeated on this road trip?

WHERE: American Airlines Center, Dallas, Texas

WHEN: 6:30 p.m. CT

HOW: NBATV

THE STORY: It's an early start for the second game of this three game homestand. After sweeping a trio of games on the road, the Mavericks immediately came back home and lost in disappointing fashion to the Clippers. Now, the team gets a reprieve facing the dysfunctional Knicks.

But I say that as if we haven't seen the Mavericks lose to teams like this before. The Knicks might have trouble with consistency and playing up to their talent, but there's no doubt they are capable of turning it on against the porous Mavericks defense.
