DALLAS - The Dallas Mavericks are off to a 2-0 start for the first time since 2004-05, but it'll be a challenge to move to 3-0 given the competition that faces them here at the AAC tonight in a 6 p.m. tip.
The competition is the Portland Trail Blazers, featuring the backcourt tandem of Damian Lillard (oaveraging 33.5 points and 6.5 assists during Portland's 1-1 start) and C.J. McCollum, who a year ago paired with Dame to make up the third-highest scoring guard duo in the NBA last season at 46.8 points per game, behind only Houston’s Chris Paul/James Harden and Golden State’s Steph Curry/Klay Thompson
Dallas counters with its own dynamic duo of Luka Doncic (averaging 29.5 points, 9.5 rebounds and 6.5 assists) and Kristaps Porzingis (averaging 23.5 points).
