It’s an early start for those of us watching the Dallas Mavericks (22-16) against the Boston Celtics (26-12) Thursday evening. The two teams faced off against one another last just before Thanksgiving, with the Celtics cruising comfortably, 125-112. Dallas is riding a seven game win streak, whereas the Celtics have lost two in a row, including a painful 150-117 loss to the Thunder. This one starts at 6:30 on TNT. Here are the game details.

WHO: Dallas Mavericks vs Boston Celtics

WHAT: Nationa

WHERE: American Airline Center

WHEN: 6:30 p.m. CST

HOW: BallySports Southwest

The Celtics aren’t without anyone of note, while the Mavericks are still without both Dorian Finney-Smith and Josh Green.

Here is the longer game preview we ran last night. And we had a pair of betting posts if that’s something you’re interested in.

Despite this looking like a brutal game on paper for the Mavericks, I’ve got a good feeling about this one. Luka Dončić loves playing in big games and Jayson Tatum outplayed him in the November contest. Dončić’s on a heater at the moment so I’m very much looking forward to this game.

What are you thinking about or worried about before this game kicks off?

You may wonder about the weirder game thread layout, that’s something we’ve been advised to do by our bosses.

See you all at 6:30 on TNT, then after the game here at Mavs Moneyball and on Spotify Live. Go Mavs.
