The Dallas Mavericks travel to New Orleans to face the Pelicans on Dec. 5, and here is a look at how fans can enjoy that contest.

The Dallas Mavericks look to continue their winning ways on Wednesday against the New Orleans Pelicans. The Mavs are facing the second of a back-to-back after winning on Tuesday against the Portland Trail Blazers 111-102.

Dallas also had everyone active except Dirk Nowitzki on Dec. 4. It will be worth monitoring the injury report until tonight’s tipoff because of the back-to-back.

The Pelicans are struggling as they head into this contest. New Orleans has lost six of their last eight games. The Mavericks have struggled on the road all season, so it will be an uphill battle for Dallas to win despite the Pelicans recent struggles.

Final thoughts

The Dallas Mavericks are facing a second of a back-to-back, and NBA fans know that things can get wild in those games. The Mavericks will need to defend well against Anthony Davis and Jrue Holiday to win on Wednesday evening. Luka Doncic will need to have a standout offense game as well.

It will be interesting to see who Dallas matchups up on Davis. DeAndre Jordan will not be able to get on the perimeter to cover him. That means the Mavericks will likely use Harrison Barnes and Dorian Finney-Smith to do the dirty work. Stopping AD is almost impossible, but watch that matchup this evening.
