Dallas Mavericks Schedule in 2014-15
The Dallas Mavericks are ready to get back in the saddle this season to hit
the court and take on all the best teams that the NBA has to offer. The Mavericks nabbed the final spot in the Western Conference
playoffs last season and are looking to post an even better regular season this time around. The Mavs gave the eventual champion
San Antonio Spurs a real run for their money in the first round of the playoffs, showing this team's potential to be a contender
in the West. The Mavs have some tough home games coming their way this season, so make sure to get out to the arena to see
all the biggest matchups in person.
Dallas will certainly be looking to exact their revenge on the Spurs, who went on
to win the NBA title last postseason after taking down the Mavs in the first round. It's never easy to take down the defending
champs, but the Mavs are hoping that their good offseason moves can may major dividends against a team that they seem to match
up well against. The stands are sure to be packed with Mavs fans when the Spurs visit this season.
The Mavericks will
also be looking to elevate their level of play when they Houston Rockets come to town. Not only are the Rockets another in-state
rival, but they're also a division rival, making all head-to-head matchups between Dallas and Houston extremely important.
The Rockets have a great one-two punch in James Harden and Dwight Howard, but Chandler Parsons will be looking to show his
old team that they made a mistake in letting him go as a free agent this offseason. Make sure to take a look at the rest of
the schedule this season as well.
Dallas Mavericks Team Info
The Dallas Mavericks are looking to rise
into the upper echelon of the Western Conference this season, and they look like they have the talent to make it happen after
a very intriguing offseason. The Mavericks went out and traded for the backbone of their championship team, landing Tyson
Chandler in a deal with the New York Knicks. Chandler is a defensive anchor and a great leader on the floor and in the locker
room. Mavs fans are eager to see him back on the floor in a Dallas uniform. Dallas also re-signed Dirk Nowitzki to a very
reasonable contract, giving the team cap flexibility moving forward. The Mavs also signed restricted free agent forward Chandler
Parsons to an offer sheet worth more than $40 million over three years. To many people's surprise, the Houston Rockets declined
to match the offer and Parsons became a Maverick. Parsons is a versatile small forward that can pass, shoot and handle the
ball, and he's very active on the defensive end of the floor. The Mavericks are excited to see how Parsons helps the team,
and he should be a great addition right from the get-go. With Monta Ellis still on the roster and Devin Harris re-signed,
the Mavs look primed to shoot up the standings in 2014-15.
Being there in person for a
National Basketball Association game is something that basketball fans simply can't get enough of, and that's why people all
around the country are always clamoring to see their favorite pro hoops teams in person. When it comes to the Dallas Mavericks,
people love heading to the American Airlines Center to see this team in action. You'll be impressed with how good these players
really are when you're there this season, as these athletes are best seen up close. If you've never been out to see the Mavericks
hit the court, then this is the year to change that. It's an amazing experience to be there for a close game that comes right
down to the wire for a dramatic Mavs win.
Dallas Mavericks Trivia
Did you know that new Mavericks addition
Chandler Parsons was drafted in the second round?
That's right - the Houston Rockets stole Parsons in the second round
of the NBA Draft and the Florida product quickly grew into a good player. Parsons' versatile game was on display during his
time with the Gators, and it eventually earned him SEC Player of the Year honors. Somehow Parsons was overlooked in the first
round of the draft, and the Rockets got him at a bargain price for his time in Houston. The Mavericks saw what Parsons was
worth now, though, and awarded him with a three-year contract that will be him more than $45 million. Dallas is excited to
see what he can bring to the table this season.
