Friday night’s game is the 22nd of the season – one third of the way through this lockout-shortened campaign. Of those 22 contest, Indy will have played 15 of them out of a suitcase. The Dallas Mavericks are not going to look at that, and take it easy on them. Once again, Dallas is just plain good, but the Pacers have handed home losses to the Lakers, Bulls, Magic, and T-Puppies in the last two weeks. You know the guys in that locker room believe they can knock off the defending champs, but they must prove it – over and over again. It’s time for another Twitter video preview – I’ll give you my thoughts in 140 seconds or less.
You can follow Jared Wade (@8pts9secs) and I (@TimDonahue8p9s) during the game on Twitter for the Pacers’ side. From the Mavs side, be sure to check out our True Hoop sister site: The Two Man Game. Also, some great follows for the Mavs – Rob Mahoney (@RobMahoney), Connor Huchton (@ConnorHuchton) and Ian Levy (@HickoryHigh) – each offer both Mavs insight and are well respected as great NBA minds among the blogosphere.
Thanks to Jared for putting together the Lance highlights for me.
By the way, the Mavs should be taken seriously, not serious. :facepalm:
