7 Must Watch Games for the Dallas Mavericks This Season
October 26th- Mavericks @ Pacers
The Mavericks open the NBA season a week from today against the Indiana Pacers. This is the moment we have all been waiting for as it has been a crazy summer full of unexpected moves, heartbreak, and then overwhelming excitement.
For the first time, MFFLs will be able to see this team play together in a game that matters. Getting no walk in the park schedule right off the bat, the Mavs will have their hands full with Eastern Conference hopefuls in the Indiana Pacers.
The Pacers are led by the comeback player of the year in Paul George, who is ready to compete for an MVP award this season. The Pacers also have former Maverick, Monta Ellis running and gunning like he always does.
Rounding out the starting 5 that we should see on opening night is Jeff Teague, Thaddeus Young, and Myles Turner.
Dallas will start off on the right foot if they can snag a win over the Pacers. Confidence may be key for this young and newly acquired team to be ready to compete at the highest level for an entire season. Count on seeing a lot of leadership from Dirk Nowitzki, Deron Williams, and Wesley Matthews.
