Storyline to follow: Bouncing back
The Mavericks played poor defense on Friday. They allowed 106 points including letting the Knicks shot 50.0 percent on their 28 3-point attempts. New York was also plus nine in the rebounding battle. Luka Doncic had a monster triple-double, but the Mavericks ultimately fell to the Knicks.
The Mavs need to salvage a win in Memphis. They cannot afford to lose two straight to two projected lottery teams. Expect Luka to stay locked in as he tries to lead the Mavs to a difficult road victory.
Dallas Mavericks supporters should tune in and enjoy the game. They will be forced to play a bit different with Porzingis likely out. It will be interesting to see how Coach Carlisle runs the rotation. Stay tuned.
