DALLAS - Despite being sidelined for the remainder of the season, Indiana Pacers wing T.J. Warren has emerged as one of the top names in NBA trade rumors as of late. Could this present an opportunity for the Dallas Mavericks? The Pacers have experienced plenty of turmoil this year.
The Mavericks have gone 20-19 against Western Conference opponents. Dallas ranks ninth in the Western Conference with 34.5 defensive rebounds per game led by Luka Doncic averaging 7.2. The teams meet for the third time this season.
The surging Dallas Mavericks aim to continue their torrid play on Tuesday when they vie for a season sweep of the host Memphis Grizzlies. The Mavericks (40-28), currently in fifth place in the Western Conference, have won four in a row and 10 of their past 12 after completing a two-game sweep of the Cleveland Cavaliers on Friday and Sunday. With four games remaining in the regular season, Dallas would wrap up a spot in the main draw of the West playoffs with any combination of two Mavericks wins or two Los Angeles Lakers defeats.
