Kato coming off a terrific weekend in the UP, and now heads back to try for more points. LSSU started slow, but is 3-2 over its last 5. Can the Mavericks match the intensity level they brought last weekend, or is this the dreaded "trap" that sports announcers and unsuccessful bettors like to talk about?
For the Mavs, Jean Paul Lafontaine seemed to find his game last weekend with a trip back to his home state, and hopes to continue that this week. Stephon Williams also brought back some long-dormant skill.
Laker fans, are you starting to like what you're seeing of Whitten and his system? Optimistic for this weekend and the rest of the season?
