GAME THREAD: Dallas Mavericks at Denver Nuggets

New, comments

The Mavericks look to avenge those back-to-back losses in November and get back to some winning ways.

Matthew Emmons-USA TODAY Sports

WHO: Dallas Mavericks at Denver Nuggets

WHAT: The playoff push continues.

WHERE: Pepsi Center, Denver, Colorado

WHEN: 7:00 p.m. CST

HOW: ESPN; FSSW

THE STORY: When these teams last met back in November, Denver was a fringe playoff contender. But now, well, not so much. Denver has fallen to the bottom of the league in most rankings, and Dallas is making a playoff push. As we all know, Dallas can ill-afford to lose a game like this one, having lost two in a row and with a brutal March against Western Conference powerhouses coming up. Oh, and Wayne Ellington is out tonight for personal reasons, so we may see some increased minutes for Jae "The Beast" Crowder.

And oh hey...a nationally televised game! Check out the previews while you wait, and gooooooo Mavs.
