Dallas Mavericks full preseason schedule

The Dallas Mavericks had a whirlwind offseason in 2020. Teams were not allowed to make moves until Nov. 16, and over the first week, the Mavs remade their roster. They added defense and toughness to eliminate their biggest weaknesses from last season.

Fans will not have to wait long for the season to get back underway. The regular season is set to begin on Dec. 22. That means the annual Christmas Day games will be back, and the Mavericks are expecting to take part.

Dallas found out the first piece of their schedule on Friday as the NBA released the preseason slate. See it here courtesy of Shams Charania. Let us take a look at the Mavericks games.

Dallas Mavericks full preseason schedule

Here is a rundown of the Mavericks entire three-game preseason slate.

Game 1: Dec. 12 at Milwaukee Bucks- 7:00 p.m. CT

Game 2: Dec. 14 at Milwaukee Bucks- 7:00 p.m. CT

Game 3: Dec. 17 vs. Minnesota Timberwolves- 7:30 p.m. CT

The Mavericks have just three preseason games on the docket. The first two have Dallas matched up against Giannis Antetokounmpo and the Bucks. There will be plenty of headlines heading into those games about the Mavs pursuit of the reigning two-time MVP. Those will only get louder if Giannis does not sign the supermax extension with the Bucks before the Dec. 21 deadline.

The Mavericks host the Timberwolves in their final preseason game. That should be an exciting one. Minnesota has number one overall draft pick Anthony Edwards to pair with All-Stars Karl-Anthony Towns and D’Angelo Russell. They will be hoping to make a playoff push in the Western Conference this season.

The Dallas Mavericks are planning on jumping into title contention. Training camp opens on Dec. 1, so stay tuned for a plethora of coverage on your favorite team in the days ahead. Do not miss it.
