Game On: Hornets @ Mavericks
Game 79. Hornets in Dallas to play the Mavericks, who are just a game behind us in the standings. Big game.
The 47-31 Mavs have looked serious their last two games, blowing out the Suns and Jazz at American Airlines Center. Nowitzki has been stepping up, averaging 31.3 points on 64.3 FG% the past three games. J.J. Barea has also been giving them a lift off the bench recently.
Dallas have the 8 seed in the West right now, but no doubt they’d like to move up and avoid the Lakers in the first round.
