Dallas Mavericks must-win remaining game: 1. April 22 & 24 vs. Los Angeles Lakers
The Mavs will host the defending champions for two games in late April. They could be two of the biggest games of the season for Dallas.
The Lakers are playing without LeBron James and Anthony Davis right now. Both players have significant injuries, and it is sinking Los Angeles in the standings. They have lost five of their last seven and are tied for fourth in the Western Conference.
The Lakers are just about to start a seven-game road trip too. They return home to face the Celtics and Jazz twice before their two-game set with Dallas. It could be a rough go over that brutal ten-game stretch.
The Mavericks could have the chance to knock the Lakers into the play-in by sweeping the two-game set in Dallas. They would hold the tiebreaker by winning both as well. The Lakers won the only meeting so far this season as they dominated the Mavs on Christmas Day.
It will be a difficult set for both teams that could have huge implications on the playoffs. Fans will not want to miss it or any remaining game for the Dallas Mavericks. Every single one is important as they attempt to climb the standings. Stay tuned for all the latest.
