THE STORY: The Dallas Mavericks are 1-1. They lost one game badly and won one game showing flashes of the fun team we thought they would be. Tonight, with the Bulls in town, they have another chance to show off their young talent. Harrison Barnes and Devin Harris will be out at least until Friday, so that means it’s the Luka Doncic/Dennis Smith Jr./DeAndre Jordan show once more.

After the first game, I wasn’t so sure. After Game 2, I was more hopeful. Tonight should give us a pretty good indication of whether we can start to hope for — well, at least for a fun team to watch. Let’s go Mavs!
