Matchup to Watch
Dirk Nowitzki vs. Cody Zeller/Marvin Williams: Nowitzki’s versatile scoring ability, particularly his pull-up mid-range game, will be a big challenge to the Hornets’ two primary power forwards.
• The Mavericks’ roster move was signing Amare Stoudemire for the rest of the season once he cleared waivers with the New York Knicks.
• .The Hornets have spilt the season series with Dallas each of the previous two seasons. The Mavericks won in Charlotte in November by 27.
• The then-Bobcats lost their first 16 games against the Mavericks before finally winning in November 2012.
• Ex-Bobcat Raymond Felton isn’t playing much as the Mavericks’ third point guard.
