Dallas: Wild, wild West

Hockey

🏀Mavericks: Thanks to a double-double from Luka Doncic, the Mavs picked up a big 127–113 win over the Miami Heat on Tuesday, helping them hold on to fifth place in the Western Conference. But the LA Lakers and Portland Trail Blazers are hot on their tails with under two weeks remaining in the regular season. Talk about the wild, wild West.

  • Dallas will face a true playoff test tonight at 7:30 p.m. ET/6:30 p.m. CT, taking on Kevin Durant and the East’s second place team, the Brooklyn Nets. No pressure, no diamonds.

🏒Stars: Center Tyler Seguin gave us something to cheer about, returning to the ice on Monday and scoring in his first game back from a hip injury. But the fun stopped there as the Stars fell 5–4 to the Florida Panthers in overtime. And there’s more bad news where that came from: they dropped yesterday’s tilt with the Tampa Bay Lightning, 6–2. Ugh.

Despite the losses, the Stars do still have an (extremely small) shot at the playoffs, but they’ll need to win their last three games to have a chance. Let’s go streaking!
