As we are eyeballing the basketball hibernation period, good news came as the Mavs’ 2013-2014 schedule was announced on Tuesday evening. If you still haven’t seen it, you can check it out here.

Fans of the Mavs are starving for basketball as last season broke a streak of 12 consecutive playoff appearances (2001-2012) for the team. The streak was the longest in franchise history and the second-longest in the NBA (San Antonio made its 16th straight trip to the postseason last season). The Denver Nuggets, who made their 10th consecutive postseason appearance in 2013 (2004-2013), now own the second-longest active playoff streak.

One of my favorite things to do is read the schedule and analyze it. An even better thing to do is get a smarter person’s analysis of the schedule. Enter: Television play-by-play voice of the Mavs Mark Followill.

When it comes to preparation and analysis, it’s hard to find many better than Followill.

With that in mind, enjoy his thoughts and insight when it comes to breaking down the new schedule.

Cue the Intelligent Mark Followill!
