The Dallas Mavericks host the Atlanta Hawks on Dec. 12, and here is a look at how fans can enjoy the magic of Luka Doncic against the Hawks and Trae Young.

The Dallas Mavericks have a few storylines to follow heading into Wednesday night’s game, but the headliner may change as tipoff approaches.

Fans will be discussing the 2018 draft night trade that saw the Mavericks and their opponent the Atlanta Hawks make a deal that ultimately netted Dallas Luka Doncic. Wonder Boy’s unprecedented play through 25 games makes that deal a larger story. The Hawks drafted Trae Young and likely have the Mavs 2019 first rounder from the trade, but Doncic’s superstar-esque play makes it a difficult pill for Atlanta to swallow.

The Mavericks are also trying to run their home winning streak to 11 games with a win inside the American Airlines Center tonight. They have played stellar at home all year, and that is the main reason they are firmly in the playoff picture at this juncture.
