WHAT: Keeping ahead of the Lakers and Blazers by getting a key
WHERE: American Airlines Center, Dallas, TX
WHEN: 8:00 p.m. CDT
THE STORY: With the Blazers losing to the Suns late Thursday night, it becomes as important as ever to keep the foot on the gas for the Dallas Mavericks. They play a Toronto “team” that has NINE players out (well, two of them are doubtful, but it’s frowned upon in the NBA to activate a player listed as such in the latest injury report).
Dallas is without Maxi Kleber and JJ Redick, so they should use this game mainly as a tune up. Personally, I’ll be watching how Kristaps moves on defense as his offense looked great in his first game back.
Past that, there’s a lot of watching around the league to see what’s happening with other teams. The Blazers just play once, the Lakers twice.
See yall after the game, go Mavs.
