Mavericks Vs. Blazers: Game Preview, TV Info And More

Dallas starts a four-game road trip in Portland, where they'll miss facing Mavs-killer LaMarcus Aldridge.

Presswire

LaMarcus Aldridge, a Dallas native and University of Texas product, has been a nightmare for his home-town team the last two years, but Dallas catches a break Friday in Portland, as the big man (averaging 28.2 points a game vs. Dallas) is lost for the year due to hip surgery.

The Mavs have a slim half-game lead over Denver and Houston in the playoff race, but hit the road for a four game run, first stopping in Portland, where they haven't played since winning Game 6 of the playoffs' first round last year, when Dirk Nowitzki put up 33 points and 11 rebounds.

Location: Rose Garden, Portland, Oregon
