GAME THREAD: Dallas Mavericks at Memphis Grizzlies

New, comments

The Mavs are likely out of the running, but there’s plenty to evaluate.

NBA: Memphis Grizzlies at Dallas Mavericks Jerome Miron-USA TODAY Sports

WHO: Dallas Mavericks at Memphis Grizzlies

WHAT: A Friday night party?

WHERE: FedEx Forum, Memphis, TN

WHEN: 7:00 p.m. CT

HOW: Fox Sports Southwest or NBA League Pass

THE STORY: Okay kids, let’s get really real here for a sec. The Mavericks need help to make the playoffs. A lot of help. That they are probably not going to get, because several other teams are way better.

Whew, that felt good to get off my chest.

That said, even though #TeamTank is back and better than ever, these games are pretty great to evaluate young talent. There are a lot of questions about guys like Jarrod Uthoff, Nerlens Noel, Dwight Powell, and — well, probably really any guy not named Dirk Nowitzki. For more on what to watch tonight, check out the game preview from earlier today, and as always, let’s go Mavs! (Or you know, let’s go talent evaluation!)
