The Mavericks won their last one on a tough call on Kevin Love, and that must have been a tough one to swallow for Mark Cuban and the Mavs.
“Shawn was the key to the game, no question about it,” Mavericks coach Rick Carlisle said. “If we’re giving out game balls, it’d be two game balls in a row for him. Activity was great. Played both ends of the floor. Didn’t run one play for him. He just produced.”
Marion did foul Love on the play, but you have to put yourself in position to win games in order to pull it off. Bad call by the refs, but got to give the Mavericks the effort points on the defensive side of the ball, and sometimes that can be the difference between victory and defeat.
This one tips off at 6 PM EST, and wish that could be attending this one myself; here is the TV info if you were missing it.

The Wizards are favored (-2), and it hurts to go against my home area team but the West is just to good this year; go with the Mavs. Got a lot of pro basketball content coming at you today, so stay put.
