GAME THREAD: Dallas Mavericks at Portland Trail Blazers

New, comments

Can the Mavs get back on track against a somewhat surprising Portland team?

Jerome Miron-USA TODAY Sports

WHO: Dallas Mavericks at Portland Trail Blazers

WHAT: Wes Matthews vs. his former team

WHERE: Moda Center, Portland, OR

WHEN: 9:00 p.m. CT

HOW: FSSW or NBA League Pass

THE STORY: Tonight is the second night of a back to back for both Dallas and Portland, which may not mean much for Portland, but for Dallas it probably means no Chandler Parsons, no JaVale McGee, and maybe no Dirk. (As of my writing this, those things haven't yet been announced.) So for those of you who, like me, are Dwight Powell fans, tonight's your night. The Mavericks are going to need some better shots to fall tonight, unlike -- whatever that was against Sacramento last night. Wes Matthews returning to Portland should hopefully provide some incentive for that below his average 3-point shot to step up its game a bit.

Oh, and hi Al-Farouq Aminu! I still like you but please don't hurt us kthx.

Legoooooooo Mavs.
