GAME THREAD: Dallas Mavericks vs. Los Angeles Lakers

Deja Vu All Over Again.

NBA: Los Angeles Lakers at Dallas Mavericks Kevin Jairaj-USA TODAY Sports

WHO: Dallas Mavericks vs. Los Angeles Lakers

WHAT: Hoping this doesn’t hurt too much

WHERE: American Airlines Center, Dallas Texas

WHEN: 7:30 p.m. CST

WHY: Because we have to

THE STORY: This game thread worked wonders last time, so why would we change it?

The other night the Mavericks defeated the Detroit Pistons 127-117 and yet we were all still mad that they made it look so hard. This team hasn’t looked good lately, even against bad teams, and it’s been frustrating.

Hopefully that changes tonight and Dallas comes out blazing, not falling into a hole they have to dig out of against a good team. Maybe they come out and hit a bunch of threes. Maybe Luka has someone fix his haircut before the game. Heck, maybe they even play a little defense. Ok, let’s not get crazy.

Lebron James is still out recovering from an injury suffered when Lola Bunny stepped on his foot on the set of Space Jam 2, but unfortunately Anthony Davis and his eyebrow are here to make us sad. It’s not a late game so you don’t have to make coffee, but you can watch with us and leave some nice comments.
