WHO: Dallas Mavericks @ Milwaukee Bucks
WHAT: The first pre-season contest
WHERE: Fiserv Forum, Milwaukee, WI
WHEN: 7:00 p.m. CT
HOW: Fox Sports Southwest or NBA League Pass
THE STORY: After a rousing opening pre-season performance to start the year, the Mavericks will look to build on things. Perhaps Dallas coach Rick Carlisle will mix up his line ups or rotations some after hockey-style line ups in the first contest.
Look for the Dallas starters to appear sharper after a rusty start Saturday night. New starter Josh Richardson looked right at home though which was a key question heading into actual basketball. Hopefully we’ll see different mixes of players this game, just because the Mavericks have a number of exciting new additions.
If you’re watching tonight, tell us how you’re getting the game. The dispute between cable providers and FoxSports Southwest might really limit people getting to see the Mavericks just as they’re about to take a leap.
Have fun tonight. Remember I’m going to move the thread off the main page a few hours following the game. You can access the thread via the “Game Coverage” section at the top of the page. I’ll also post a link in the recap comments.
