NBA schedule for Wednesday, Jan. 2
All times Eastern
Mavericks drain 10 3s in the first quarter
The Mavericks got off to an incredible start against the Hornets. They jumped out to a 42-26 lead after the first quarter thanks to a franchise-record 10 3-pointers in the frame.
Ariza finishes strong at the rim
Trevor Ariza is back with the Wizards, and apparently the trade let him turn back the clock. This drive and dunk against the Hawks looked like the Ariza of old.

Dion Waiters hadn’t played in an NBA game since December of 2017 due to ankle surgery, but the entertaining guard was back in action for Miami on Wednesday night. Late in the second quarter, he got his first bucket, draining a pull-up jumper.
