THE STORY: After a shocking win against the Jazz, the Dallas Mavericks have stumbled over their last seven games, winning against a Giannis-less Bucks team and on a Luka Doncic stumbling prayer against the Memphis Grizzles. The five losses have featured ugly defense and often listless offensive basketball.
With two days without games, an eternity comparatively to the rest of the season, perhaps now is the time the Mavericks will try to right the ship against the Pistons. Dallas fans will get a nice look at Saddiq Bey, one of the many players the Mavericks passed on to select Josh Green, as well as the ability to check in on old friend Dennis Smith Jr.
Everyone be nice in the comments and go Mavericks. The thread will likely get bumped after the recap is up; with another game tomorrow against the Lakers, we have plenty of things going on.
