WHO: Dallas Mavericks at Indiana Pacers

WHAT: The Mavs look to extend their win “streak” to two games.

WHERE: Bankers Life Fieldhouse, Indianapolis, Indiana

WHEN: 6:00 p.m. CT

HOW: Fox Sports Southwest or NBA League Pass

THE STORY: Coming off a surprising upset win over the hot Toronto Raptors at home, the Mavericks travel to the Hoosier state to take on the Pacers. Indiana, though not as hot as Toronto, is still one of the better teams in the Eastern Conference. If Dallas wants to notch a second win in a row, it will have to slow down Victor Oladipo like it did DeMar DeRozan last night. Both teams are playing on the second night of a back-to-back that included travel. Therefore, there could be some sloppy play due to tired legs. That could lead to more jump shots than usual, something that may favor the Pacers, who have the best 3-point shooting percentage in the league.
