6:00 p.m., ESPN: NBA, Dallas Mavericks @ San Antonio Spurs. This Texas battle features two of the top three teams in the Western Conference, even though they may currently rest on opposite sides of the spectrum. The new run ‘n' gun Spurs have won four consecutive games behind their explosive offense, while the Mavericks have dropped three straight -- and six of their last ten -- as the team struggles to cope with extensive injuries.â†µ
8:30 p.m., ESPN/FSNAZ: NBA, Portland Trail Blazers @ Phoenix Suns. The Trail Blazers head to Phoenix on the heels of the announcement that franchise player Brandon Roy will have season ending surgery on both of his knees. Portland's unlucky streak seemingly has no bounds, as the team always appears to be dealing with injury concerns. Still, give Nate McMillan's squad credit for persevering through their adversity and maintaining an above .500 record. That's more than we can say about the Suns.
