01/10: Dallas vs. Portland Open Thread

New, comments

Second night of a back-to-back, but that hasn't exactly been a problem this season.

Last time the Mavs played Portland Dallas won 103-96. They instantly double teamed Zach Randolph every time he got the ball and held him to 8-22 from the field. They'll probably use the same tactic again tonight.

LaMarcus Aldridge almost got a double-double in 19 minutes in their first matchup (and his first career game). He's had a lot of bad games and DNP's since then, but Nate McMillan has supposedly decided to start giving him consistent minutes and he's averaged 16 and 6 his last two games. He's the wild card tonight.

Discuss the game here.
