WHO: The Golden State Warriors host the Dallas Mavericks
WHAT: 1-7 without Lamar Odom, trying to build on that
WHERE: ORACLE Arena, Oakland, CA
WHEN: 9:45pm CT
HOW: TNT | League Pass
THE STORY: The Mavs hopefully continue to make a push in the last two weeks of the regular season and because the first game on TNT is pretty boring right now, the Mavs and Warriors have to provide the entertainment on national TV for tonight I guess. The way both teams have defended lately some points are guaranteed. Plus: The Warriors have plenty of decent minor players to go off on us, as usual (Richard Jefferson anyone?). Golden State totally dominated the Champs in the first meeting on March, 10th, so there's some revenge in the air. Stephen Curry and Andrew Bogut are still out as you'll find out at the fine folks of Golden State of Mind. Anyway: Let's do this!
No statistical preview for tonight because I tried to tweak the engine earlier today and that went completely wrong.
Oh yeah: And Golden State is interested in Lamar Odom next season. Will be a tough negotiation.
