The Dallas Mavericks return home to face the New York Knicks on Friday, Nov. 2, and here is how fans can enjoy that game.

The Dallas Mavericks are looking to get back in the win column on Friday evening.  They have lost five straight and are winless in five road attempts this season.  The Mavs have just two wins in their first eight games.

The good news is they return home this evening to face a struggling New York Knicks squad.  The Knicks have two wins on the season and already have a five-game losing streak on their ledger.

The Dallas Mavericks need to secure a home win this evening.  Here is how fans can watch them face the Knicks.

Start Time

Friday’s game inside the American Airlines Center begins at 7:30 p.m. local time or 8:30 p.m. ET.

How to watch

Television broadcasts are only available in the local markets this evening.  Mavericks fans can watch on Fox Sports Southwest-Dallas.  The game is on MSG for New York viewers.

Watch online

The recommended option for watching online is Fubo TV.  It features NBA League Pass and all your favorite networks.

Fans in Dallas can also watch via the Fox Sports Go app.

Storyline to follow- Luka Doncic vs. Tim Hardaway Jr.

Tim Hardaway Jr. has been on fire to start this season.  He is averaging 26.0 points per game through 8 contests.  Hardaway Jr. is taking a massive 20.0 field goal attempts a night, and 9.1 of those are 3-pointers.  He is shooting a 41.1 percent clip from downtown.  That is unsustainable, but expect to see plenty of shots from THJ this evening.

The Knicks are playing a three-guard lineup, so it will be interesting to see how they match up this evening.  The Mavericks are using Luka Doncic more and more as it becomes evident that he is already their best player.  If they matchup Hardaway Jr. on Luka, the Slovenian should feast.  It could be a noteworthy night for Doncic where he further stakes his claim to the Rookie of the Year award.  Fans are not going to want to miss it.

Final thoughts

The Dallas Mavericks host the New York Knicks on Friday evening.  Both teams have two wins and are struggling early on.  The Mavs are favored to win and present challenging matchups for the Knicks.

DeAndre Jordan could be in line for a stellar performance as well.  The Knicks frontcourt does not match up well against the rebounding and dunking ability of Jordan.  Expect another massive double-double on Nov. 2.
