Game Night: Dallas Mavericks Look To Build On Momentum


Jayne Kamin – USA Today Sports


Dallas, TX – The Dallas Mavericks (4-4) take on the woeful Los Angeles Lakers (1-7) tonight at the American Airlines Center. After a huge win against the Los Angeles Clippers Wednesday the Mavericks will look to keep that moment going.


What to Watch For

The Dallas Mavericks will need to win this game to keep the momentum going. They take on the Lakers tonight and the Rockets tomorrow. It will be interesting to see what Rick Carlisle does as far as rest and playing time goes. Chandler Parsons did not play against the Clippers and his status for tonight is unknown.. As far as the Lakers, the status of Kobe Bryant is still well up in the air according to reports.



The Mavericks played incredibly well on Wednesday night shooting 55.3% from the field. I wouldn’t count on that every game so this weekend will again be telling to see what this team is all about. Deron Williams will need to continue his production and the bench will need to come up big on the back to back.


Mavs Keys to the Game

The Lakers have several young guys trying to lead the Lakers into a new post-Kobe era. None more impressive than the Kentucky forward Julius Randle. Randle absolutely bullied the Mavs in their meeting November 1st where he posted 22 points and 15 rebounds and will look to do the same tonight. Randle really impressed taking people off the dribble and backing down Mavs defenders. It will be up to Zaza, Dirk and Powell to try and slow the 20-year-old down.


Besides containing the paint on defense the Mavs will look to continue to feed a blazing hot Dirk Nowitzki and continue to allow Wes Matthews to find his stride.


Tip off begins at 7:30 PM and can be seen on Fox Sports South West.
