WHAT: A chance to win five straight home games
WHERE: American Airlines Center, Dallas, Texas
WHEN: 6:30 p.m. CST
THE STORY: Beating the Suns at home, playing their fifth game in seven nights feels greedy. It seems too much to ask for these revitalized Mavericks. I am feeling greedy. I am asking for it all the same.
It’s been fun, the Mavericks winning. That’s the whole point I suppose. With DeAndre Ayton out, it feels like the Mavericks have a chance to steal one against the very best team in the league, record-wise. Dallas hasn’t played the Suns well in years. I think the last time Dallas beat the Suns, the pandemic hadn’t yet started, sometime in 2019.
Either way, this feels like a good chance to take one, riding high on 10 wins in 11 games, including four straight at home.
Let’s go Mavs. See you all after the game.
