WHO: Dallas Mavericks vs Utah Jazz

WHAT: The second Dallas Maverick pre-season game

WHERE: American Airlines Center, Dallas, TX

WHEN: 7:30 p.m. CST

HOW: BallySports Southwest

THE STORY: Maybe this time the Dallas Mavericks will be able to beat the Clippers on their home floor!

The Mavericks return to the floor for their second tune up. Game one saw a strong showing from almost the entire roster, with Luka Doncic looking incredible, Kristaps Porzingis looking fluid, and Boban Marjanovic hitting all the threes.

Expect some different line ups tonight as pre-season is an ideal time to see what groups can do together against live competition. Jalen Brunson, for example, played a lot of minutes Wednesday night so it will be worth watching to see what other players get minutes as ball handler back up. Carlik Jones got the call the other night and he performed admirably.

We’ll have recaps, podcasts, and follow ups after the game.
