WHO: Dallas Mavericks vs Portland Trailblazers
WHAT: A chance to regain the series lead, then a chance to win the series outright
WHERE: Dallas, Texas, American Airlines Center
WHEN: 7:00 pm, then 9:00 pm (but originally April 25th and 28th in 2011)
HOW: Fox Sports Southwest
Those of you blessed to live in Texas (or who have access to various streaming options) have a chance to watch games five and six of the 2011 first round playoff match up with the Blazers. After suffering two painful losses in Portland, the Mavericks had a chance to bounce back at home.
While I wish that Fox Sports Southwest opted to show all 2011 playoff games, since some of the Dallas losses were iconic in their own right, these victories are a slow build. I assume many of us want to get to the sweet against the Lakers already, but a chance to watch vintage Dirk Nowitzki go bananas is not something we should pass up.
