No rest for the old and weary in the early stages of the NBA season: “The Mavericks have entered the embryonic stage of forming a defensive presence. Now the hard part starts. Starting tonight against Utah’s Deron Williams, they face the two toughest, most offensive-minded point guards in the league in a 24-hour span. On Wednesday, they visit Chris Paul and the New Orleans Hornets. ‘For J-Kidd, the one thing I love about these two games is that he’ll take the personal challenge,’ assistant coach Darrell Armstrong said Monday. ‘He looks forward to it. They’re probably the two top point guards in the league – after J-Kidd. I guarantee you he’s looking forward to that challenge.”‘
