Dallas has lost three of their last five home games, but look to regain home court against the road-weary Blazers Saturday night.
The Mavericks (16-11) return home Saturday night to begin a three game homestand, starting with the Portland Trailblazers. Dallas ended their road trip with a 104-97 win over the Timberwolves on Friday night, forcing 28 turnovers and finishing their road swing 2-1. Dirk Nowitzki finished with a season-high 33 points.
The Mavs have been less than impressive back in Big D, losing three of their last five home contests. The Blazers might be the answer, as Portland is 4-9 on the road this year (two of those wins came against the NBA's worst team, New Orleans). The Blazers have lost 20 of their last 25 games against Dallas.
