Coming off a much-needed victory over the Houston Rockets, the Dallas Mavericks (27-33) start a four-game road trip against the Detroit Pistons (23-40). Dallas opens up their road trip against Detroit before facing Minnesota and Milwaukee and closing it out against their in-state rivals, the West-leading San Antonio Spurs.
The Pistons might be without the services of Greg Monroe. He’s nursing a sprained left ankle suffered in practice Tuesday. He missed the team’s game against the New York Knicks earlier in the week. He is considered to be a game-time decision for the game against the Mavericks. Pistons assistant coach Brian Hill will run team tonight in place of Lawrence Frank. Frank is home in New Jersey tending to a family matter.
Here are the notes for the game between the Mavericks and the Pistons.
