On Saturday night the Dallas Mavericks hosted the defending NBA Champion Toronto Raptors at the American Airlines Center. The Mavs were attempting to bounce back from a disappointing week, losing 3 of the last 4 games including two losses to the lowly New York Knicks.
Last year the American Airlines center was a fortress for the Mavs, 24 of their 33 wins were at home in the 2018-2019 season. Coming into this game Dallas was 2-3 at home this season. Granted, 2 of those losses (Blazers, Lakers) I feel like the Mavs got robbed, but the record is what it is.

As an NBA franchise, you don’t want to lose to the Knicks. The Mavs already lost to the Knicks once, representing half of NY’s wins in a young eleven game season.

The Mavericks squeaked out a nail biter of a game last night, after another slow start. Luckily for the Mavs, neither team was able to get into much of a rhythm on the offensive end of the floor. The only difference being that the Magic were able to turn some of their defense into effective scoring opportunities, in what would turn into a common theme throughout the game, the Magic ended up with a total of 14 steals and 10 blocks that they were able to turn into 22 fast break points.
