WHO: Dallas Mavericks at Philadelphia 76ers
WHAT: The start of a three game road trip.
WHERE: Wells Fargo Center, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
WHEN: 6:00 p.m. CST
THE STORY: This will be the first of three on the road for the Mavs, and fortunately it looks to be a pretty favorable three games (this one, Pistons, Knicks). Because eeeesh, that last game stung a little. Philly was undoubtedly the most active team at the trade deadline, for whatever that's worth. But since the Sixers will only have eight players available per Mark Followill, and since "second round draft picks" can't actually play a game, think if the Mavs just show up and don't totally suck, they should be fine. Famous last words, I know.
Friday night, y'all. Grab a drink and meet us in the comments below. GO MAVS.
