The 2014 NBA season gets underway tonight with a small slate of three games. The middle NBA game, the Dallas Mavericks at the San Antonio Spurs, is set to be the most competitive of the three, with the Mavs reloaded and the Spurs returning most of their NBA Championship pieces from last season. Fortunately if you’re not near a TV at 8pm EST you can watch Mavericks at Spurs live online free NBA season opener as well.
The Spurs got some pre-season flak a few weeks ago for sitting some of their star players and leaving coach Gregg Poppovich at home. The Spurs have used that tactic previously during the regular season, but those thoughts won’t be in play tonight against the Dallas Mavericks.
The Mavericks reloaded during the offseason in hopes of bringing another title to Dirk Nowitzki, Mark Cuban and Co. Two All-Stars, center Tyson Chandler and forward Chandler Parsons, will make their 2014 debut tonight against the Spurs.
Tonight’s Mavs Spurs game marks Houston’s first regular-season debut with Dallas after the Houston Rockets failed to match the Mavericks’s $46 million offer. Last season with the Rockets, Parsons averaged career highs of 16.6 points and 5.5 rebounds. Tyson Chandler, on the other hand, returns to Dallas after helping lead the Mavericks to the NBA title in 2010-11 before leaving for the New York Knicks.
With Chandler and Parsons in tow, the Mavs will be a tough test for the Spurs as we watch the teams’ NBA season opener live online or on TNT. Especially since forward Kawhi Leonard will be sitting out with an eye infection. Leonard, who sat out most of the preseason, was named Finals MVP last season after averaging 23.7 points and 9.3 rebounds while shooting 68.6% in the last three games.
