7 Must Watch Games for the Dallas Mavericks This Season
November 9th- Mavericks @ Warriors
Aside from being the defending Western Conference Champions and just another season removed from an NBA title, the Golden State Warriors are one of the most exciting opponents for Dallas this year. Of course, it starts with the chance to take down the heavy favorites in the West.
The Warriors, of course, added Kevin Durant to their already All-Star caliber roster, making them one of the scariest lineups in NBA history on paper. It remains to be seen whether these players will be capable of putting it all together, but no matter what happens, they will be dangerous.

A win for the Mavs over a team like the Warriors would boost the confidence immensely for most of these younger players and for the team as a whole. These are not the only reasons this game is exciting, though.
For the first time, Harrison Barnes will be playing against the Warriors instead of for them. Barnes has been the starter for Golden State the last few years and is finally able to spread his wings a little bit with a new team.
The Mavs also added Andrew Bogut from the starting lineup of the former NBA Champions, giving them a presence in the middle they have been looking for. Bogut will be a force against his previous team and is excited to be in Dallas.
Of course, not all news is good news. Dallas will be playing against a former fan favorite, Zaza Pachulia when they meet with the Warriors in November. He is sure to receive a warm welcome back once the Warriors make their way down to the American Airlines Center.
