GAME THREAD: Dallas Mavericks vs. Portland Trail Blazers

Can the Mavs go 3-0???

NBA: Dallas Mavericks at Portland Trail Blazers Jaime Valdez-USA TODAY Sports

WHO: Dallas Mavericks vs. Portland Trail Blazers

WHAT: 3-0???

WHERE: American Airlines Center, Dallas, TX

WHEN: 6:00 p.m. CT

HOW: Fox Sports Southwest or NBA League Pass

THE STORY: I’ll admit, I have not fully understood Rick Carlisle’s choices when it comes to starting lineups (seriously, what sort of blackmail does Courtney Lee have on him?), but the Mavericks are 2-0 to start the season for the first time since 2004-05, so I guess do what you want. Dallas will face another test with Portland coming into town. Portland went to the Western Conference Finals last year, and while there have been a few offseason changes, a team with Damian Lillard and CJ McCollum is always going to test you.

So, we’ll see what the Mavs can do. Legoooooooo.
