Maybe Kyrie won’t drop 47 on us this time!

NBA: Boston Celtics at Dallas Mavericks Jerome Miron-USA TODAY Sports

WHO: Dallas Mavericks at Boston Celtics

WHAT: Sweet revenge (hopefully)

WHERE: TD Garden, Boston, MA

WHEN: 6:30 p.m. CT

HOW: Fox Sports Southwest or NBA League Pass

THE STORY: The Mavericks begin a 3-game road trip tonight against the league-leading Celtics. Last time these teams met, the Mavs squandered a 14-point fourth quarter lead, going on to lose a heart-breaker in overtime. Dallas showed that they are capable of hanging around with this team if they stay focused throughout. Coming off of two straight blowout wins over the short-handed Clippers and Nuggets, the Mavs will hope to carry over as much momentum as they possibly can tonight. It’s not going to be easy, especially when you consider that the Celtics are 7-0 vs. Western Conference teams and 11-2 at home. Can the Mavs extend their winning streak to a season-high 3 games? Will they be able to defend Kyrie Irving this time around? Stay tuned to find out! Let us know what you’re hoping for tonight, MFFLs.
