WHAT: The first home game of the season!
WHERE: American Airlines Center, Dallas, TX
WHEN: 6:00 p.m. CT
HOW: Fox Sports Southwest or NBA League Pass
THE STORY: There’s no rest for the wicked. Or for any team that’s playing horribly inconsistent basketball. Or any players who may or may not be mildly out of shape.
The Heat are in Dallas for what could be considered an early game by local standards, but since it’s a holiday and the first day of the new year, perhaps it won’t be any weirder than other day or game in recent memory.
Miami is a good basketball team, so the reeling Mavericks will have their work cut out for them. Let’s see if they can turn it around in one way or another, either by actually playing defense or perhaps through hitting some of the great shots they get in a well formed offense.
Enjoy the game. I’ll likely take down the game thread the morning after.
