GAME THREAD: Dallas Mavericks @ Washington Wizards

The Mavs continue their northeastern road trip with a stop in Washington, DC.

NBA: Toronto Raptors at Washington Wizards Geoff Burke-USA TODAY Sports

WHO: Dallas Mavericks @ Washington Wizards

WHAT: A chance to stop a two-game losing streak.

WHERE: Washington, DC

WHEN: 6:00pm Central

HOW: Fox Sports Southwest or NBA League Pass

THE STORY: After a four-game winning streak, the Mavericks have lost their last two. Tonight, they get the chance to stop the slide, but it won’t be easy. The Wizards have recovered from a slow start early in the season to charge up the Eastern Conference rankings and are currently vying with Boston for the two seed. But they’re also coming off some rough games, including a loss Monday to the Timberwolves.

Also in the Mavericks’ favor: the much anticipated return of Nerlens Noel following a three-game absence due to knee soreness. But even with Noel, can the Mavericks contain the Wizards’ scorching back court of John Wall and Bradley Beal?

I’m looking forward to seeing this one in person as the Mavs make their annual stop in Washington. Welcome to DC, guys!
