GAME THREAD: Dallas Mavericks vs. Portland Trailblazers

Last game for a few days

NBA: Portland Trail Blazers at Dallas Mavericks Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

WHO: Dallas Mavericks vs Portland Trailblazers

WHAT: Five straight? Back to .500!

WHERE: American Airlines Center

WHEN: 6:30 pm CST

HOW: ESPN or Fox Sports Southwest (unclear how the black outs work if you’re local, sorry!)

THE STORY: The Mavericks continue to build on four straight victories despite having the worst defense in the NBA for 15 or so games now. Luckily, the Blazers also stink at defense but have a better record with Damian Lillard being a world beater. This will be a high scoring affair and hopefully another game where Kristaps Porzingis feasts with Portland having few healthy bigs. It’ll be worth watching to see if Dallas can keep Enes Kanter off the boards.

This is the sixth straight home game for the Mavericks and they’re looking for their fifth straight win. A victory would bring them back to .500 after they fell five games below the mark earlier this year.

As always, be kind.
