PHILADELPHIA -- After tonight's game in Philadelphia, the Dallas Mavericks will hop on a train and take the 90-minute ride to New York City, where they will play the Knicks on Sunday.
The Mavs are taking a charter train, which means they'll have the whole place to themselves.
"I've never been on a train going to New York City, so it'll be interesting to kind of see how it all works,'' forward Brian Cardinal said. "I'm excited to spend a little quality time with the team.''
Guard Dominique Jones has never taken a train ride in his life, so he's looking forward to this being a special event.
"It should be fun,'' Jones said. "I've always wanted to take a train ride.
"I was planning on, after this season, taking a train ride somewhere so I can look at the country.''
