Game Thread: Mavericks (47-20) at Warriors (30-37)

New, comments

WHO: The Golden State Warriors host the Dallas Mavericks

WHAT: Maybe another 40-point performance from Beaubois?

WHERE: ORACLE Arena, Oakland, CA

WHEN: WAY too late. 9:30pm CT

HOW: ESPN | FSSW-DAL | CSN-BA | KESN | KNBR | NBAC (Canada)

THE STORY: Last night's loss to Portland was frustrating for several reasons. One, the Mavericks shot a perfect 11-11 to start, and finished shooting nearly 60%, and yet they still lost. Two, the team had five players in double figures, and Dirk Nowitzki managed a double-double... in a loss. Finally, the Blazers could quite possibly be our first round match-up and we failed to play even a smidgen of defense. So tonight... well tonight, we just need a win so we're not totally hopeless heading into the Spurs game on Friday. Sorry, GSW. You just don't mean that much to us anymore.

Third-string Dallas Mavericks center Ian Mahinmi got a chance to play extended minutes Tuesday night at Portland with Brendan Haywood scratched with lower back stiffness. Even if Haywood is able to play tonight against the Golden State Warriors, the smallish, up-tempo Warriors present a poor matchup for Haywood and Mahinmi could again get the call behind Tyson Chandler.
