The Dallas Mavericks continue their homestand against the Chicago Bulls on Oct. 22, and here is how fans can view that contest.

The Dallas Mavericks wrap up their brief two-game homestand on Monday against the Chicago Bulls.  The Mavs won their home opener against the Minnesota Timberwolves in exciting fashion and are looking to build on that performance.

Fans will want to keep an eye on the status of Harrison Barnes heading into this contest.  Barnes practiced on Friday and Saturday but has yet to play this season because of a hamstring injury.  The forward was listed as out on the new NBA official injury report on Sunday.  Fans should get a better sense of his status at shootaround.

Storyline to follow- Luka Doncic vs. Wendell Carter Jr.

Both teams struggled last season, and choose high in the lottery.  The Bulls took Wendell Carter Jr. with the seventh overall pick, and the Mavericks got Luka Doncic after a draft night trade.  Both young men are already starting early in their rookie campaigns.

Carter Jr. has still only played 18 and 20 minutes in his first two games.  He is starting in the frontcourt alongside Bobby Portis.  Expect Doncic to matchup on him for a few possessions this evening.

Luka had an outstanding home opener that had Mavs fans jumping out of their chairs.  If you missed it, check out his highlights here.
