Dallas Mavericks Hope For Some Magic in Orlando
After losing four straight games, the Dallas Mavericks travel on a quick turnaround to face the Orlando Magic on Saturday night in Orlando.
Rock bottom has come in Dallas whether you like it or not. Four veterans are still out due to injury and the young guns haven’t exploded onto the scene like some would have imagined. This all came to light at it’s peak on Friday night as the Mavericks scored just 64 points and lost to the Memphis Grizzlies by 16.
But that is in the past and now the Mavericks must shift gear (quickly) to the Magic after arriving in Orlando in the early hours of the morning. Sitting at 2-9 on the season, Dallas looks for that elusive third win on the season.
For the Magic, it’s been a little different story over the past week. Their last game, three days ago, was a win at home against the New Orleans Pelicans. Now they welcome the Mavericks on two full days rest.
With Nowitzki, Harris, Williams, and Barea still out, to go along with a second game on a night of a back-to-back, Dallas has all the odds stacked against them.
Here are three ways for them to win on Saturday night.
