WHAT: The Mavericks try to look like the care about their chose profession for an entire game
WHERE: Chase Center, San Francisco, CA
WHEN: 8:30 p.m. CST.
THE STORY: It’s increasingly difficult to write anything coherent about the Mavericks in these game threads. First, half the team is on the injury report and we get gems like Rick Carlisle getting mad about getting asked about it.
Wondering if Kristaps Porzingis or Josh Richardson or Maxi Kleber or JJ Redick are playing tomorrow vs. the Warriors?— Callie Caplan (@CallieCaplan) April 27, 2021

Assuming the best on the injuries we then have to wonder if the Dallas Mavericks give a crap about the game which they’ll be partaking in enough to actually try to win it. The Warriors are riding Steph Curry’s Konami Code performance as long as they can and he’s been crushing the Mavericks this season anyway, with 44 points a game in the previous contests.
So let’s hope the Mavericks try. They did the incredible thing against the Lakers which put them in control of their own destiny. A loss tonight would hurt their chances of making up ground even more. Go Mavs.
