NBA announcing schedule for this week's national TV games, February 1-6
The Dallas Mavericks face the defending champion Golden State Warriors in the NBA Saturday Primetime game on ABC. It is a Western Conference Finals rematch, and what could turn into a key tiebreaker for the Mavs. The two teams are neck and neck in the standings, and Dallas won the first meeting of the season behind a 41-point triple-double from Luka Doncic. They only play three times, so the Mavericks can take the season series and that important tiebreaker on Saturday night.
Fans will not be able to listen to Mark Followill and Derek Harper on Feb. 4 because it is the ABC game of the week. It is not available on NBA League Pass, and there will be no Bally Sports Southwest coverage on Sunday night.
Who is announcing the nationally televised games from Feb. 1 to Feb. 6? Who can Mavericks fans look forward to on the call for the battle between Western Conference backcourt starters Luka Doncic and Stephen Curry? Here is a closer look.
