The GIST: The Mavericks have struggled to find their footing, posting a 3-4 record through the first two weeks of play. But they might be in for some fairy tale magic soon thanks to Kristaps “The Unicorn” Porzingis’ imminent return.
🏀Mavericks: The Mavs’ slow start can be attributed to a tough few games for star guard Luka Doncic. But the MVP favorite finally showed up in a 113–100 win over the Houston Rockets on Monday, recording his first triple-double of the season. Welcome back!
- And now, Doncic and co. can look forward to the return of Porzingis. The powerful center — who suffered a season-ending knee injury in the bubble — won’t play tonight when the Mavs take on the Denver Nuggets at 10 p.m. ET.
- But coach Rick Carlisle expects him to be back in action within the next week to week-and-a-half. Can’t wait.
🏈Cowboys: The Cowboys might have been eliminated from the playoffs over the weekend, but that didn’t stop Cowboys owner Jerry Jones from boasting about his team’s “world record” attendance at AT&T Stadium this season...in the middle of a pandemic. Yeah, we’d much rather be bragging about a playoff run right now.
