WHAT: The return of the Mavs (and J.J. Barea) to AAC.
WHERE: American Airlines Center, Dallas, Texas
WHEN: 7:30 p.m. CT
THE STORY: There's no shame in losing to the Spurs, especially when they played them to the final shot, but the Mavericks will look to right the young season's ship in their home opener tonight. Out is Gal Mekel, and IN is former Maverick J.J. Barea, who will be available tonight. Also, Richard Jefferson will be facing his former team for the first time.
Fans in attendance will receive these shirts. I WANT ONE.
