WHAT: The Mavericks need to get their first win of the year
WHERE: Staples Center, Los Angeles, CA

THE STORY: The Mavericks have now played two straight road games and lost them both. Now they face a pretty quick turnaround after playing on Christmas night against the Los Angeles Clippers. They also played Friday night, defeating the Nuggets, though they may be without superstar Kawhi Leonard who took a nasty shot to the face from Serge Ibaka.
On the one hand, this rough start to the season isn’t entirely unexpected. Road games paired with a quick start on top of missing Kristaps Porzingis. On the other hand, the Mavericks have high hopes on the season so a losing streak to start the season stinks.
But, perhaps today’s the day to get a victory on the board.
