THE STORY: When we last saw the Dallas Mavericks, they were celebrating an improbable/totally destined to fall buzzer beater from the one and only Dirk Nowitzki to seal their third straight road win. Tonight, they're back home and facing the Pelicans in a nationally televised bout. The Pellies have had some mascot confusion and some bad luck with injuries this season, but they should pose a more interesting challenge (on paper at least) than the three teams the Mavs just faced. (Which seems weird to say considering the last game.) But it can't be said enough: the Mavericks need EVERY win to get into the playoffs. Go get it, boys.
