GAME THREAD: Dallas Mavericks vs. Los Angeles Lakers

In what should be a good test for the surprising Mavericks.

NBA: Dallas Mavericks at Los Angeles Lakers Richard Mackson-USA TODAY Sports

WHO: Dallas Mavericks vs. Los Angeles Lakers

WHAT: LeBron is in town.

WHERE: American Airlines Center, Dallas, TX

WHEN: 8:30 p.m. CT


THE STORY: Hey, the Mavs are maybe good? Better than expected? Man, that’s nice. For your Friday evening consideration, LeBron James, Anthony Davis, and the Lakers are in town, and this should be a very good test of whether Dallas can compete with similarly situated teams. The teams have identical records, but Kyle Kuzma should return tonight to the Lakers, which may give them a boost. For the Mavericks, will we see another starting lineup from Rick Carlisle?

At any rate, worth tuning in to a nationally televised matchup. Go Mavs!
