Mavericks set for big match up with Denver
Tonight Dallas has a date with Denver in probably the biggest game yet. Dallas recent resurgence has found them 2 GB of the 8 seed in the western conference going 8-3 in there last 11 games. It has been a remarkable run for Dallas who just simply refuses to quit. In the Stretch Yogi Ferrell who was signed to a 10 day contract has made a huge impact having a career night with 32 points in Portland Friday night with also a franchise tying record for most 3's made in a game by a rookie. Rick Carlisle recently changed to a small lineup which has helped the re surging Mavericks. With a younger and smaller NBA with teams going smaller lineups this was a great move that really had to be made because going big was not working. The Mavericks look to continue there season long winning streak tonight of 4 and extend it to 5 with a win @ Denver and inch closer to the 8th seed in the Western Conference. Still a lot of work left ahead but the next two nights will be crucial. If the Mavericks can sweep this back to back they will have won the season series with Portland 3-1 and take a 2-1 series lead with Denver with one game left to play in Dallas in April. Game tonight will start at 8:00pm CT on Fox Sports Southwest.
