Dallas Mavericks: 3 Matchups to Watch Vs. Nuggets
The Dallas Mavericks host the Denver Nuggets at home on Monday night. Here are three matchups to watch as both teams try to turn things around.
The Mavericks are coming off a tough loss to a good Houston Rockets team on the road after beating the Indiana Pacers the night before that. Still battling a handful of injuries to some of the main staples of the rotation, the Mavericks will be short-handed once again on Monday night.
Dirk Nowitzki, Andrew Bogut and J.J. Barea will all be OUT due to injury on Monday night. Devin Harris will be worth monitoring, but should be good to go on Monday night.
Denver is coming off an eight point victory against the Orlando Magic a few days ago. Wilson Chandler missed the game against Orlando, but his status for Monday night is unclear at the moment.
For the Mavericks, this starts a two game home stretch where they should have a decent shot at winning both games compared to their previous opponents.
The Nuggets and Mavericks enter the matchup with a combined record of 14-33.
Here are three matchups to look forward to watching.
