Dallas Mavericks vs Atlanta Hawks game thread

New, comments

Happy Wednesday. Let's basketball.

Tim Heitman-USA TODAY Sports

The Dallas Mavericks embark on their annual visit to Philips Arena on Wednesday evening and the Atlanta Hawks welcome them with open arms. What ensues will be an interesting match-up and, of course, Dirk Nowitzki's presence always adds a layer of intrigue. For Atlanta, it will be an opportunity to win back-to-back games, but nothing will come easy against a Dallas team that is suddenly playing a (very) respectable brand of basketball as the calendar flips to March.

Stay tuned throughout the evening for all the latest and, as always, let's keep the discussion civil in the comments.
