WHO: Dallas Mavericks vs Milwaukee Bucks

WHEN: 2:00 p.m. CT

HOW: NBAtv or Fox Sports SW

THE STORY: With the Mavericks sitting Luka Doncic, Dorian Finney-Smith, and Kristaps Porzingis and the Jazz sitting Donovan Mitchell, this is going to be an absolute rock fight on the offensive end.

That said, it’s a fun time to see players we’re likely to not see much of the rest of the way. This may well be one of J.J. Barea’s last games playing significant minutes. Josh Reaves may go for 30! Rudy Gobert will look like a colossus on the court.

Weird things are about to happen, is the point. While missing Luka, you can read one of our many Luka-focused stories in game, including this great one from Ricky O’Donnell. It might be ugly basketball, but that’s better than no basketball.
