GAME THREAD: Dallas Mavericks vs. New Orleans Pelicans

Will this be the night?

NBA: Dallas Mavericks at New Orleans Pelicans Chuck Cook-USA TODAY Sports

WHO: Dallas Mavericks vs. New Orleans Pelicans

WHAT: Dirk passing Wilt, probably.

WHERE: American Airlines Center, Dallas, TX

WHEN: 7:30 p.m. CT

HOW: Fox Sports Southwest or NBA League Pass

THE STORY: The New Orleans Pelicans are coming to town, and these days they have about the same record as the Mavs. With all the drama surrounding them this season, they’re understandably spiraling a bit. (The Mavs, on the other hand, are just bad — and that’s okay!) Luka should return to the game tonight, and we are all going to be on our toes watching for Dirk to pass Wilt Chamberlain for number 6 on the all-time scoring list, which should happen early in the game as he only has four points to go.

Should be a fun one, if only for that. Let’s go Mavs!
