Game 26 Preview: Mavs vs. Hawks

This is the redemption game for the awful, horrible, depressing loss that the Mavs experienced in Atlanta early this season when they were up by up by 26 and lost by 7.  Mavs and Hawks tipoff tonight at 7:30 pm CT at the American Airlines Center as the Mavs go for their 11th straight home victory.  For the first time all season, Dirk Nowitzki is not listed as OUT on the injury report and has been updated to Questionable.

Luka Doncic, age 19, just 23 games into his NBA career, has already proved to be the best player on his team and one of the most clutch players in the league.  Being clutch is nothing new to Luka, he has been doing it for years in EuroLeague where Pros 10 years older than him defer to the teenager and allow him to have the ball in his hands in clutch moments.

The Mavericks have been one of the most exciting teams in the NBA to watch this season.  We have the WonderBoy basketball prodigy producing magic almost every night and second year menace Dennis Smith Jr growing into a defensive force and playmaker.  With all the of the hype on the amazing moments from the Menace and the Matador, the most productive player on the team can often go overlooked.  The Maestro, Jose Juan Barea, may not play the most minutes, but while he is on the floor he proves to be one of the most productive players in the league.  Consider this article JJ Barea’s candidacy submission for NBA 6th man of the year so far this season.
