WHO: Dallas Mavericks at Charlotte Hornets
WHERE: Time Warner Cable Arena, Charlotte, North Carolina
WHEN: 6:00 p.m. CT
THE STORY: The Mavericks have played a couple of inferior opponents the past two games in the Sixers and Timberwolves, allowing them to regain their status of "most prolific offense ever" or whatever we're calling them these days. The Hornets should prove a more interesting challenge: if you read Bailey's preview earlier, they can play some defense. Though, they will be short handed tonight, missing the services of Michael Kidd-Gilchrist and Gary Neal.
Mavs should win this, but they need the offense to keep offense-ing and the defense to show up. Goooooo Dallas!
