By Tyler Watts
The Dallas Mavericks host the Portland Trail Blazers on Dec. 4, and here is the multitude of ways that fans can watch that battle.
The Dallas Mavericks look to continue their magnificent play against the Portland Trail Blazers on Tuesday evening. The Mavs have won nine of their 11 home games this season. Overall, the team has won nine of their last 12 and continues to look like a threat in the deep Western Conference.
The Blazers are 13-10 on the year but have hit a cold spell. Portland has lost two straight and five of their last six games. Their defense has been a problem as they are allowing 121.3 points per game over that stretch. The Mavs have no trouble putting up points, so that could be a significant advantage tonight.
Here is how fans can watch the Dec. 4 game between the Dallas Mavericks and the Portland Trail Blazers.
Tuesday’s game inside the American Airlines Center in Dallas begins at 8:30 p.m. ET or 7:30 p.m. CT.

Storyline to follow- Lillard vs. DSJ
The Blazers are led by Damian Lillard whose 27.0 points per game ranks sixth in the NBA. He is also top-ten in minutes so expect to see plenty of the lethal scoring threat in tonight’s game.
The Mavericks will counter with Dennis Smith Jr. The second-year point guard is coming off a clutch performance against the Clippers. DSJ lost a tooth but came back to block a potential game-tying shot in the final seconds. He also hit the final two free throws to ice the victory.
Smith Jr. has increased his activity on both sides of the ball in recent games, so it will be entertaining to watch this battle tonight. Lillard is one of the NBA’s elite point guards, but do not count out a strong game from DSJ.
The Dallas Mavericks face the Portland Trail Blazers on Tuesday night. As of this writing, the Mavs have a ton of uncertainty heading into the game. Dirk Nowitzki is listed as out, and six other players are listed as questionable on the official injury report. That includes Luka Doncic, Dennis Smith Jr, J.J. Barea, Dwight Powell, and Maxi Kleber. Mavericks fans need to hope for a healthy team against the Blazers.
The matchup inside between Jusuf Nurkic and DeAndre Jordan is worth watching. Nurkic is a guy known for grabbing rebounds and protecting the rim. Winning the rebound battle is a key for Dallas in this game, but Nurkic will make that difficult.
