You guessed it, the Dallas Mavericks are in another back-to-back situation beginning Thursday night as they take on the Los Angeles Lakers. The Mavericks (9-23) are coming off a loss (season sweep) to the Houston Rockets 123-107, in a game that was flooded with technical fouls.
The Lakers (12-23) are coming off a nail-biting loss to the Utah Jazz on Tuesday 102-100.
Dallas looks to continue their winning ways against the Lakers, having won seven consecutive games against the purple and gold. The Lakers have had a horrible month, only winning three out of their last 16 games.
Harrison Barnes vs Luol Deng
For many that have watched Luol Deng, it comes as no surprise that he has a great defensive prowess. I expect to see a drop in offense from Deng as he looks to shutdown Harrison Barnes, the Mavericks’ top scorer this year. In return, if Barnes can find a way to light up the field tonight, Dallas should leave the Staples Center with an easy victory.
If Jordan Clarkson, Lou Williams, Nick Young, and D’Angelo Russell play in rhythm, it will be a tough one to watch for Mavericks fans everywhere.
Andrew Bogut – Questionable (Right Knee)
J.J. Barea – Out (Achilles)
It hasn’t been announced as of 9:30AM CST, but expect Dirk Nowitzki and Andrew Bogut to only play one of the next two games on this back-to-back road trip.
Larry Nance Jr. – Out (Left Knee)
How To Watch
Catch the game on Fox Sports Southwest at 9:30PM CST or listen locally on ESPN Dallas 103.3 FM.
