The Dallas Mavericks are in Louisiana to face the New Orleans Pelicans on Tuesday night. Superstar Luka Doncic and company are looking for their first winning streak of the season after a dominating victory over the Grizzlies on Saturday night. Can they build on that impressive performance?
The Pelicans won their first two contests of the season before dropping a heartbreaker to the Utah Jazz where both Zion Williamson and Brandon Ingram went down with injuries. One of their two stars has already been ruled out with Zion listed as questionable to face Dallas on Tuesday night.
It is a nationally televised game on TNT on Tuesday night, so fans know Luka will be locked in. Here is a look at how to watch, the odds, and more as the Mavericks face the Pelicans in New Orleans.
