DALLAS -- The Dallas Mavericks have about 700 tickets remaining for tonight's regular season opener against the Atlanta Hawks.
Tipoff is at 7:30 p.m. at American Airlines Center.
The Mavs are asking fans to arrive early and will open the doors at 5:30 p.m. -- 30 minutes earlier than usual for a 7:30 tipoff -- because of inclement weather expected in the downtown Dallas area. The Mavs will sell hot dogs and sodas for $1 each from 5:30-6:30 p.m.
The Mavs have sold out 473 consecutive games. The streak started on Dec. 15, 2001 and is the longest active streak among the four pro major sports.
