Dallas Mavericks vs. Boston Celtics: Live Score, Results and Game Highlights

Wednesday night the Dallas Mavericks (11-10) travel to Beantown to face the Boston Celtics (11-9).

Dallas has a four-game winning streak against the Celtics, but with Dirk Nowitzki still out after knee surgery, the attention focuses on Jason Terry’s first game against his former team.

Terry, the Mavs sixth all-time leading scorer, decided to leave for greener pastures after last season, but has not found his groove, averaging only 11.5 points and posting a career low 13.29 PER.

Meanwhile, O.J. Mayo has taken over the reigns in Dallas with Dirk hurt and Terry gone.  Mayo is building an all-star caliber portfolio this season, scoring 20.8 points and shooting 48 percent from the field, both career highs.

Speaking of All-Stars, Rajon Rondo is also having a career year.  The Celtics point guard is leading the league in assists with 12.8 per game and scoring a career high 13 points per game.

Both teams will be pressing for a win, as the Celtics currently sit tied for third in the Atlantic with Brooklyn, while Dallas is third in the Southwest.

Check back in at 8 p.m. ET for Wednesday night’s matchup and live coverage from Bleacher Report.
