The Dallas Mavericks (13-8) head to Tennessee Monday night to face the Memphis Grizzlies (6-15). The game is on at 7:00pm local time and will be on NBAtv and Bally Sports Southwest. This is already the third match-up of the season series, with Dallas winning the first contest and Memphis striking back with a big win just 10 days ago. Here’s the main things to know:

  • WHO: Dallas Mavericks at Memphis Grizzlies
  • WHAT: A Southwest Division game
  • WHERE: FedEx Forum, Memphis, Tennessee
  • WHEN: 7:00 pm CST
  • HOW: Bally Sports Southwest

The injury front is a bit bleak for Dallas. Kyrie Irving is out with his foot injury and Josh Green and Maxi Kleber are still out with their known injuries. Grant Williams might be back next game. Tim Hardaway is a late scratch with back spasms. The Grizzlies still have a million guys hurt, but it’s the same group from several days ago. Here’s the full list.

It’ll be key for Dallas to not mess around this game like they did against Portland. Desmond Bane is a heck of a player they cannot afford to let get going. It’ll be on Luka Doncic to bear the brunt of the scoring effort.

We have some stuff up on the site, but we’ve been lazier over the long weekend. With lots of games on the horizon, expect a lot more content. Thanks for hanging out, please check back after the game for the usual game coverage. Go Mavs.
