The Dallas Mavericks (4-1) head up to the big apple to take on the New York Knicks (3-0). Though only playing three games, the Knicks remain the league’s lone undefeated team. New York has not played a game since their victory on Monday against the Phildaelphia 76ers. The realist is saying that they will be well-rested and well-scouted for their game against the Mavericks. The optimist is saying that they will be rusty for the matchup against the Mavericks.
In an update of who is in and who is out: Elton Brand rejoined the team after not being with the team for their game with Toronto so he could be with his wife for the birth of his second child. Roddy Beaubois will once again be a gametime decision due to a sprained left ankle.
Here are some notes for the matchup against the Knicks.
