Where: Philips Arena, Atlanta, GA

When: 7:00pm CT/8:00pm ET

How: NBA TV | FSSW-DAL | SPSO | KESN | WQXI | NBAC (Canada...?)

The Story:

The Mavericks desperately need someone other than Dirk Nowitzki to shoulder the burden of the team. But interestingly enough, Dallas enters this game with the top defense in the NBA. When did you ever expect THAT to happen!?

The Atlanta Hawks had players other than Joe Johnson step up while recording consecutive wins. The Dallas Mavericks have probably been overly reliant on Dirk Nowitzki in consecutive losses. The Hawks will try to saddle the Mavericks with their first three-game losing streak of the season on Saturday night at Philips Arena.
