NBA schedule 2012: Mavs start weekend with back-to-back

The Dallas Mavericks will play a back-to-back on the road against the Pacers and Cavaliers over the weekend.

Matthew Emmons-US PRESSWIRE

This season, the Dallas Mavericks have started slow away from home, putting up a 1-3 record so far when playing away from American Airlines Center, and they'll start the weekend with a tough task ahead of them in the form of a weekend back-to-back on the road. They'll start in Indiana on Friday and move to Cleveland on Saturday, looking to boost themselves up in the Southwest Division a bit.

The Mavs can gain a game on the Spurs if they win both weekend contests, with San Antonio playing only once over the weekend. Memphis, the Southwest's top team at the moment, will play a back-to-back on Friday and Saturday as well.
