WHO: Dallas Mavericks @ Charlotte Hornets
WHAT: Two teams with similar records, one on four nights’ rest and the other on the second game of a back to back
WHERE: Spectrum Center, Charlotte, NC
WHEN: 6:00 p.m. Central
HOW: Fox Sports Southwest or NBA League Pass
THE STORY: After a victory over the Orlando Magic last night, the Mavericks head east to face the Charlotte Hornets for their second game in as many nights. Despite having similar records and positions in the standings, this is likely a tough match for Dallas. Second nights of back to backs are always hard, and the Hornets are a phenomenal rebounding team with a veteran point guard in Kemba Walker who may present a formidable challenge for rookie Dennis Smith Jr. Still, it could be fun to watch. Go Mavs!
