GAME THREAD: Dallas Mavericks at New Orleans Pelicans

A little holiday trip to the Big Easy

NBA: New Orleans Pelicans at Dallas Mavericks Kevin Jairaj-USA TODAY Sports

WHO: Dallas Mavericks at New Orleans Pelicans

WHAT: Boogie and The Brow, part two.

WHERE: Smoothie King Center, New Orleans, LA

WHEN: 7:00 p.m. CT

HOW: Fox Sports Southwest or NBA League Pass

THE STORY: The Mavericks have had a couple of impressive wins in a row, knocking off the Raptors and Pacers respectively with Dennis Smith Jr. having recovered nicely from whatever was ailing him. They won’t have any easier tests in the next few games. Tonight, the Pelicans, and after that the Thunder and Warriors loom. Welp! The last time the Mavericks and the Pelicans faced off, DeMarcus Cousins and Anthony Davis proved to be far too much for Dallas, going off for 50 points. Dallas has been playing some better defense of late, so maybe that will end up helping — the last time these two teams faced off was earlier in the season before the good guys really found some rhythm.

Go Mavs!
