WHAT: Dallas could really use a win to keep their playoff chances alive.
WHERE: Moda Center, Portland, Oregon
WHEN: 9:00 p.m. CT
HOW: FSSW or NBA League Pass
THE STORY: Chandler Parsons is out for the rest of the season after suffering a meniscus tear in his right knee. That leaves the Mavericks with out their second best scoring option. Now, all the pressure is on Dirk Nowitzki to find a way to will the Mavs into the postseason. A win against Portland could go a long way in helping Dallas' odds. The Mavs are a half game back of the Blazers and a win tonight would move them into 6th place in the standings because the Mavs hold the tie-breaker in the season series.
