With the season in full swing, the Dallas Mavericks are set for a midweek contest on national television. The Mavs will travel to meet the Boston Celtics, highlighting Wednesday's NBA schedule.

Dallas and Boston are two talented teams looking to kick-start their seasons. The Mavericks currently sit at 10-10 and are tied with the Nuggets and Timberwolves for seventh place in the Western Conference. The C's, meanwhile, are 11-9 and tied for sixth in the East.

Before Dallas faces off against Boston, the Mavericks host the Kings Monday night. Sacramento is just 7-12, but the Kings have won their last three games.

In another high-profile ESPN game on Wednesday, the Spurs, who currently hold the NBA's best record at 17-4, square off against the Jazz. On Tuesday, the World Wide Leader features another intriguing doubleheader. The Knicks and Nets lead off with a battle of New York City, and the Clippers and Bulls close it out in Chicago.
