Dallas Mavericks vs. Miami Heat storyline to watch: Luka vs. Butler
Jimmy Butler is fresh off winning the Eastern Conference Player of the Week as the Heat defeated the Magic, Nets, Hornets, and Grizzlies. The five-time All-Star is scoring over 25 per game and putting up impressive numbers.
Mavericks superstar Luka Doncic has not hit his stride, but he continues to score 20-plus a night and keep Dallas rolling. The Mavs will need a monster from number 77 if they are going to upset the Heat on Nov. 2, and fans should expect the 22-year-old to be up to the challenge. Butler will be guarding Luka plenty, but it won't matter as he puts up another incredible line.
Please tune in and enjoy the game on Tuesday night. Hopefully, Kristaps Porzingis returns, and the Dallas Mavericks can pick up their fifth win of the season. Do not miss it.
