WHAT: The first game of the season!
WHERE: Phoenix Suns Arena, Phoenix, AZ
WHEN: 9:30 p.m. CT
HOW: Fox Sports Southwest or NBA League Pass
THE STORY: The Mavericks play the Suns to start the season and if you haven’t checked out the preview, here it is. In fact, we’ve written a ton of things the last three weeks as we’ve inched towards the regular season. You should open up a new tab and read all of them, one at a time, during commercial breaks or if you’re here in the pre-game (since this one starts LATE), you have time to spare.
As always, be nice in the comments; it’s going to be a long, long season.
But at least basketball is back and the Mavericks are awesome. This is what we ground out the hard years for, so we can revel in watching a good team.
Remember, I’ll remove the game thread from the main page at some point tomorrow morning. Check for it in the GAME COVERAGE tab or in the comments of the recap.
