While it isn’t the most intriguing matchup for fans in Mexico, it’ll still be nice to see the NBA expanding their horizons.
The Dallas Mavericks and Phoenix Suns will meet inside Mexico City Arena on Thursday night, as both teams sit at the bottom of the Western Conference.
The Dallas Mavericks took part in the first game in Mexico City back in 1997 and while they did take part in the preseason in a game here, the stage is completely new with this game counting.
Dallas has been a struggle pretty much in every category this season, but the road woes are the biggest concern for them.
The Mavericks have gone just 4-16 away from home while putting in just 94 points per game. The lack of offensive firepower has been a major issue all season long for Dallas.
Things are likely going to get even worse here for them as they enter play on Thursday likely without Andrew Bogut.
Bogut continues to battle a hamstring injury that he sustained on Monday against the Timberwolves. This could result in Dirk Nowitzki getting a majority of the time in the C role on Thursday.
The Suns sit just 1 game ahead of the Mavericks in the Western Conference and will take part in two games in Mexico City.
After this one against Dallas, Phoenix will stick around and take on the Spurs.
The Suns will look to rebound from a hard fought battle against the Cavs, that saw them come up just short in a 120-116 decision.
The loss put an end to a 2 game winning streak the Suns had built, their first since the beginning of November.
Phoenix also has the upperhand in this head to head series, as they took down Dallas back on January 5th 102-95.
PG Eric Bledsoe will be a huge key here, as he comes in on a high after recording 31 points against the Cavs. The 31 point showing was his 6th 30 point game this season.
