The Dallas Mavericks wrap up a brief two-game homestand against the Golden State Warriors on Nov. 17.  Here is how fans can watch that showdown.

The Dallas Mavericks host the defending NBA champion Golden State Warriors for the first time this season on Saturday evening.  The Mavs will once again wear their “City Edition” uniforms.

Dallas has been on fire lately.  They held the Jazz to 68 points in their last game and walked away with a 50-point victory.  The Mavs have won three straight and four of their last five as well.  The defense is making a stand and not a moment too soon.

The Mavericks are catching the Warriors at the perfect time.  Golden State has two of their big four out injured.  They are also coming off a 21-point loss against the Rockets.

Storyline to follow- Guarding Durant and Thompson

According to the NBA official injury report, the Warriors will be without Stephen Curry, DeMarcus Cousins, and Draymond Green against the Mavericks.  That leaves Kevin Durant and Klay Thompson to do the heavy lifting.

Dallas has Wesley Matthews listed as out after aggravating his hamstring injury against the Jazz on Wednesday.  That means guarding Thompson likely falls to Dorian Finney-Smith, and Harrison Barnes likely draws Durant.  The Warriors are going to run everything through those two talents.  Can the Mavs stop them?

Limiting the scoring of Durant and Thompson likely goes a long way in securing a victory on Nov. 17.  If neither man drops 30, the Warriors will struggle to net 100 points.  Holding them under 100 likely means a Mavericks victory.

Final thoughts

Fans should tune in as the Dallas Mavericks go for their fourth straight win against the defending champions.  The crowd should be packed and loud on Saturday night inside the American Airlines Center.

The Mavs bench unit needs to once again dominate as well.  The Warriors are missing key contributors only further weakening their bench.  That is a strength for Dallas, and they need to take full advantage this evening.
