Game-Day Thread: Raptors in Big D to Take on Beat-Up Mavericks

The Dallas Mavericks may be without a trio of their best players tonight, but with Kyle Lowry sitting for Toronto, this is certainly no easy match...

And we're back!

Originally we were only going to tackle certain games in terms of liveblogs but the response to the live games, as seen on the "preview that's turned into a liveblog," has been overwhelming.

That's been awesome to see, and for that reason, we've got someone now on the case 24-7.

Let me present Lucas Sheiner to you, who will be moderating the action, leading these game-day threads going forward, and even capping them off with a "Rapid Recap."

Pumped to have you on board Lucas, and you get a gem of a match to kick things off.

Well...gem I guess if you want to see two teams benches going at it...

Yep, no Kyle Lowry for the Raptors, and no Dirk, Elton or Matrix for Dallas.

Even without that trio, this Mavs' match figures to be a tough one, especially if Toronto plays like they did last night. The team needs much better production at both ends of the court, otherwise this could be another ugly affair by the time we reach the fourth quarter.
