WHAT: The first pre-season contest
WHERE: Fiserv Forum, Milwaukee, WI
WHEN: 7:00 p.m. CT
HOW: www.Mavs.com or NBA League Pass
THE STORY: It’s been just long enough since the Mavericks played for me to start to get a little antsy. The Mavericks head to Milwaukee to face the Bucks and the last two times these teams played we were treated to what was the best “regular season” game of the NBA Bubble in Orlando.
If you need to get pumped about this game, read this post game story from Kevin Arnovitz of ESPN which laid out how fun a Luka Doncic-Giannis rivalry could be. The chatter will likely be what this game means in terms of Dallas making a case for Giannis not signing his Super Max contract, but this game (and the next one, also in Milwaukee) won’t have much to do with that.
Enjoy the game. I’ll be removing this from the main page after the recap is up and posting it in the comments of the recap.
