Mavs Tickets & 2021 Schedule
The Dallas Mavericks are exciting teams and maintain one of the best home game atmosphere in the NBA. Their popular players, success on the court and home court atmosphere are a big reason that demand for Mavs tickets in 2021 is stronger than usual. Mavs owner Mark Cuban understands the entertainment aspect that must be there for fans, so Dallas home games are packed full of fun. Fans attend Mavs games to see the basketball, but the entire experience is what keeps the crowds coming back year after year.
Dallas plays in the NBA's Western Conference, so the Mavs play home games with each of the top teams in the conference. Their Southwest Division includes the Mavs, Houston Rockets, Memphis Grizzlies, New Orleans Hornets and San Antonio Spurs. Dallas will host those division teams multiple times in 2021, and those games really matter for the Mavs in trying to earn a Playoff berth.
The biggest Mavs home games are when top NBA stars like Steph Curry, LeBron James, James Harden, Kawhi Leonard and Zion Williams come to the AAC in Dallas. The teams that really bring out the crowds are the Clippers, Warriors, Lakers, Rockets and Spurs. The demand for tickets is always strong when their in-state rivals the Rockets or Spus are playing at the American Airlines Center in Dallas.
Mavericks vs Spurs
The Mavs and Spurs are separated by a mere stretch of 274 miles along I-35. The teams may both be from Texas, but they each have their own unique fan bases and over the years a rivalry has formed. The Mavs vs Spurs rivalry hit a high point in the 2000s when both teams met in the playoffs on a consistent basis. With stakes at its highest, the intensity level of these matchups was tough to top and the lingering feels of some of those defeats have stuck with the fans. For many years, these two teams were consistently fighting for an NBA Title which only heightened the rivalry and has made this one of the better matchups in the NBA. Today the game features a slew of younger players who have replaced Dirk, Tim and David - but the intensity for a Spurs Mavs game remains strong.
Mavericks vs Heat
This rivalry started in 2006 when the Miami Heat came back from being down 0-2 to defeat the Mavs in 6 games. Many Mavs fans never remember that series as being really lopsided when it came to the calls by the refs (ex: Dwayne Wade shot 25 free throws in Game 5). Then the Mavs vs Heat became nationally known when Dirk Nowitzki carried the Mavericks to a huge victory over the Heat's Big 3 (LeBron James, Wade & Chris Bosh) in the 2011 NBA Finals. Since then there has been a feeling of unsettled business between these two teams who carry a bit of that rivalry into every game they play.
Mavericks vs Rockets
As state rivals and linked by Interstate 45, these two teams are always battling for bragging rights. Houston vs Dallas is a rivalry within the State of Texas, their football team are rivals, their baseball teams are rivals so naturally the Rockets and Mavs are rivals. The intensity level and physical play seems to be at its highest when these two teams meet, regardless of whether the game is played in Houston or Dallas. In addition, these two Western Conference teams are always battling for playoff seeding, so the results of their season series often help dedicate who gets the higher seed for the postseason. Both teams have taken turns dominating the series with the Mavericks holding the edge during the playoffs.
