When the Dallas Mavericks host the Lakers at 1 p.m. Saturday from American Airlines Center, Dallas hopes to extend its streak to 15-consecutive wins against Los Angeles.

The Mavs and Lakers can be seen tipping off on Fox Sports Southwest or the Fox Sports Go app.

Dallas is currently riding a pair of wins and could kickstart another streak with a victory against the Lakers this afternoon.

Harrison Barnes led the way with 25 points and 11 rebounds. Yogi Ferrell added 22 points from the starting lineup, including 7-for-10 from three-point range. Dennis Smith Jr. added 15 points in his home-state stop. Meanwhile, the Big Faithful, Dirk Nowitzki, added 19 points on 8-for-16 shooting from the field.

Prior to their win in Charlotte, the Mavericks bested the Magic, 114-99, behind a pair of 20-point games from Nowitzki and Smith Jr.
