How and why to watch two classic Dallas Mavericks games on June 15

The first game gets underway at 6 p.m. CT. It is a re-air of Moody Madness. That is followed by game six of the 1988 Western Conference Semifinals against the Denver Nuggets at 8 p.m. These two classic Mavs games will be a first for some fans. Here is why you should tune in.

Moody Madness is the fifth and deciding game of the 1984 Western Conference first round playoff series between the Mavericks and Seattle SuperSonics. That is the first postseason appearance in the Mavs franchise history. They had to move it to Moody Coliseum because Reunion Arena was booked. It turns into a wild affair and one of the best games in Mavericks’ history.
