WHAT: Hey, we already made the playoffs this time!
WHERE: American Airlines Center, Dallas, Texas
WHEN: 8:30 p.m. CT
HOW: ESPN, TXA21
THE STORY: When these two teams last met late in the 2013-14 season, they were both fighting for the same 8th seed in the West. The Mavs managed to pull out the W and secure that 8th spot in what was one of my personal favorite games last season. This time, the two teams meet with not much to play for. The Mavs are in the playoffs (but still not totally assured of the 7th seed). The Suns are out. Even with so little on the line, these two teams always play some fun games, so I would expect nothing less. Oh and hey, Brandan Wright! Miss you buddy.
