(18-40) Dallas Mavericks vs. Los Angeles Lakers (23-34)
Friday, February 23 finds two Eastern Conference foes entering their nineteenth week of play in the 2017-18 regular season for the Dallas Mavericks and Los Angeles Lakers
This season the Mavericks and Lakers would already play each other twice as the teams would split the first two games on the season. For the all-time series, the Los Angeles Lakers hold the all-time series record with 105-47 against the Dallas Mavericks.
The Dallas Mavericks are ready to begin their second half of the season as the team is heading in the wrong direction and it seems they may be doing it on purpose. Owner of the Mavericks Mark Cuban recently told a sports radio show that the team should be tanking and has been.
As an owner to be telling players and rest of the coaches on the team to tank and re group the following season, man that is a bold move. No team should be tanking as players should be playing 100% of the game. Let’s see if the Mavericks will be playing along side Cubans words Thursday.
Los Angeles Lakers
If the Los Angeles Lakers want to make the playoffs, they need a perfect second half run. That run will start on Thursday night as the Lakers will host the Dallas Mavericks. Los Angeles will also start the run with having rookie sensation Lonzo Ball back from his injury.
Los Angeles enters this game with a losing streak as they are recently off playing the Dallas Mavericks as well. The Lakers would fall to the Mavericks on the road as they let the lead slowly slip away.
