DALLAS --The Dallas Mavericks' bodies will be severely tested in the immediate future as they'll have an incredible six sets of back-to-backs during the month of November.
Three of those back-to-backs will occur in their next six games which will put a definite strain on the Mavs. Especially since those games will be played in five different cities.
"We cleaned some things up from (Wednesday's win over Atlanta), and we got some preparation in for Houston,'' coach Rick Carlisle said after Thursday's practice at American Airlines Center. "Every minute that we can practice right now is important.
"We just can’t overdue it because we have a lot of games. We’ve got three consecutive back-to-backs
coming up and when you get in those situations, manpower and efficiency are really, really important.''
The Mavs play at Houston on Friday and at home Saturday against Memphis. On Tuesday the Mavs will host the Los Angeles Lakers, then play at Oklahoma City on Wednesday.
And on Nov. 8, the Mavs will face Minnesota on the road, then play at Milwaukee on Nov. 9.
