GAME THREAD: Dallas Mavericks vs. Portland Trail Blazers

Can the Mavericks turn around their first three game losing streak of the season against Aldridge, Lillard & Co.?

Jerome Miron-USA TODAY Sports

WHO: Dallas Mavericks vs. Portland Trail Blazers

WHAT: Well, they beat them once this season....they can do it again?

WHERE: American Airlines Center, Dallas, Texas

WHEN: 7:30 p.m. CST

THE STORY: Well, the past few games have certainly not been fun, and as we've written about a few times at this point, the road gets no easier for the Mavs here on out. The Mavericks return home from a two game road trip to face a very tough opponent in the Blazers. I'm not going to get into much detail here, because the fact is, the Mavs need to find a modicum of defense, and fast, or I really fear they are never beating anyone ever again. Let's hope that Dirk gets some help from Ellis, Vince, or ANYONE this game. He'll need it if the Mavs want a prayer of stealing another one from Portland.

While you wait, check out our game previews and the video below (because it's awesome), and as always, goooooo Mavs.
