Sunday’s NBA slate features the Mavericks vs. Cavaliers live streaming online and televised game coverage. This latest basketball matchup will see the Cleveland Cavs trying to keep their grasp of the No. 3 seed in the Eastern Conference playoff positioning. On the opposing side is a Dallas Mavs team that won’t be anywhere near the playoffs, but may have a bright future based on draft prospects and young players. Here’s the latest game preview including game odds, start time, TV channels, and how to watch the Mavs vs. Cavs live streaming online.

In the NBA standings right now, the Cleveland Cavaliers (46-30) are sitting in third place, but are just hanging on to that spot. They’ve got the Philadelphia 76ers (45-30) and Indiana Pacers (45-31) hovering just below them looking for an opportunity to move up. All of these teams have clinched playoff spots; it will just be a matter of where they finish the season. As of right now, Cleveland could open up the first round against the Washington Wizards. Meanwhile, the Dallas Mavericks (21-55) have been eliminated from the Western Conference playoff picture for months now, but have a good shot at a high pick in this summer’s NBA Draft. Dallas enters tonight’s game as losers of seven of the last 10 games they’ve played.
