GAME THREAD: Dallas Mavericks vs. Sacramento Kings

It’s the battle of the rookie point guards!

NBA: Dallas Mavericks at Sacramento Kings Ed Szczepanski-USA TODAY Sports

WHO: Dallas Mavericks vs. Sacramento Kings

WHAT: De’Aaron Fox vs. Dennis Smith Jr.!

WHERE: American Airlines Center, Dallas, TX

WHEN: 7:30 p.m. CT

HOW: FSSW or NBA League Pass

THE STORY: The Mavericks lost their first game against the Atlanta Hawks, and that’s okay! Expectations are low and the sky’s the limit for this team this year, and part of the reason why is Dennis Smith Jr. Smith made a show of it in last night’s loss, which is part of the reason it goes down a little smoother, and tonight we’ll get to see him go up against one of the other highly touted rookie point guards also picked in the top 10 in this year’s draft, De’Aaron Fox.

This is the first game of a back to back (ALREADY?) so we may see some funky rotations as Rick Carlisle determines the best course of action not only for tonight but also against Houston tomorrow night. And don’t expect to see Devin Harris for a couple games, as he is with his family after the unexpected death of his brother last night.

Go Mavs!
