John Hollinger @johnhollinger

Christian Wood didn’t warm up pre-game and I don’t see him on the court now in the Dallas lay-up line, so unless he’s planning a Willis Reed entrance he may be a late scratch for the Mavs. – 8:50 PM

Mavs starters: Bullock, Wood, Powell, Dinwiddie, Ntilikina. – 8:44 PM

Exclusively for @RoseGardenReprt subscribers, Nassir Little details his “super-rigorous” rehab and process for returning tonight from the hip fracture that sidelined him for six weeks

Alex Schiffer @Alex__Schiffer

From @BKN_NETSPR: Royce O’Neale (11 points, season-high-tying 10 rebounds, eight assists) has recorded his second double-double of the season.
He registered a triple-double on 11/17 at Portland.
O’Neale is two assists shy of a triple-double. – 8:16 PM

Dallas Mavericks @dallasmavs

Before tonight’s game, Luka gifted Coach Kidd his own colorway of the Luka 1s, made to resemble his old shoe 👟
What a special gift for @Jason Kidd 🙌 #MFFL pic.twitter.com/NKwIf42Sfi8:05 PM

Brad Townsend @townbrad

Chauncey Billups finished pregame interview and said “Good, I want to get back to this game.” Giants-Vikings, not Blazers-Mavs. – 7:48 PM

Mark Followill @MFollowill

Confirmed by J-Kidd for tonight, Luka is out. Wood is in. – 7:32 PM

Sean Highkin @highkin

Chauncey Billups said Nassir Little will be on a minute restriction. Not surprising considering they haven’t had a full practice with him yet and he needs to ramp up. – 7:29 PM

David Locke @DLocke09

Watching Cleveland v. Minn.
Cleveland doesn’t look right. They are 5-6 in their last 11.
Wins are 2 v. Phoenix (no Booker) 2 v. Chicago (Donovan’s 71 in OT and 1 pt win) and good win @ Portland.
Next 5 games are New Orleans, Memphis, Warriors, Bucks, Knicks
Keep an eye on it – 3:21 PM

Dallas Mavericks @dallasmavs

Right back to it in Portland.
