WHO: Dallas Mavericks at Memphis Grizzlies

WHAT: Apparently a "playoff game." In February.

WHERE: FedExForum, Memphis, Tennessee

WHEN: 7:00 p.m. CST

HOW: FSSW

THE STORY: Don't blame me for billing this as a playoff game. As two of three teams potentially for that last playoff spot, the Mavs' locker room the other night was keenly aware that this game would be an important one. The Mavs won the first two matchups, but Memphis has been surging of late. Let's hope the good guys bring their A+ shooting game and their "what looked like okay defense the last game for once" along for the ride. Marion should be back tonight, so that's a plus.

Deep breath everyone, should be a fun ride tonight. Previews are here while you wait, and GO MAVS.
