Mavericks try to ward off back-to-back Pelicans
Dallas — They won’t reach the midway point of the season until next week.
But by all accounts the Dallas Mavericks are staring at a pair of must-win games over the next two days ... against the same team.
In a quirk in the schedule, the Mavs (20-16) will meet the New Orleans Pelicans (15-19) at 7 p.m. Friday at the New Orleans Arena, and they’ll face them again Saturday night in Dallas.
