With the extreme winter conditions that’s been happening to Texas and most of the eastern United States, and Texas declaring a state of emergency, NBA officials decided to postpone the Mavericks Vs Pistons game in Dallas that was supposed to be played this Wednesday according to Shams Charania of the Athletic.
This is the second game for the Pistons that has to be postponed, considering they were supposed to play the San Antonio Spurs Tuesday until a positive COVID-19 test came from Spurs organization. It’s been a very odd year for sports in general, the least we can do is have hope for Texas and all the states that are struggling during this tough winter.
As a big NBA fan this has been an extremely unusual season, considering most teams starting lineups haven’t barely played with each other because of violations for COVID-19 or being hurt. The only teams having success are the teams that have consistent players. If you don’t believe me, take a look at Boston’s top four players (Jayson Tatum, Jaylen Brown, Kemba Walker, and Marcus Smart), and how they’ve only played a total of 28 minutes together. For comparison, the 76ers’ top four of Joel Embiid, Ben Simmons, Seth Curry, and Tobias Harris have 348 minutes together.
