The Mavericks certainly won’t have much time to get their feet wet when the regular season opens on Oct. 20 at San Antonio.
The NBA announced the season schedule Thursday and the Mavericks will have a challenging stretch right off the bat.
They play 10 of their first 16 games on the road, with 12 of the 16 opponents being teams that were either in the playoffs or the play-in tournament last season.
Clearly, they will have to hit the ground running, especially when they start the season at the Spurs and No. 1 overall draft pick Victor Wembanyama.
