Mavericks head to Sac Town to Defend The Belt

Ronald Martinez

After defeating the Portland Trail Blazers in thrilling fashion on Saturday, the Dallas Mavericks are now the holders of the NBA Championship Belt. Their first title defense is against the Sacramento Kings in the world-record holder for loudest indoor arena, Sleep Train Arena. The Kings will not have their new acquisition in Rudy Gay. With Greivis Vasquez now north of the border, Isaiah Thomas will get the start and should see more time with the ball (at least until Gay arrives). Here is tonight's tale of the tape.
