Wednesday's NBA schedule: Celtics, Mavericks square off, Warriors travel to Miami

USA TODAY Sports

Jason Terry and the Celtics face Dallas, the Heat host the Warriors, and the league-best Spurs travel to Utah in Wednesday's NBA action.

Wednesday night offers a full slate of games for your viewing pleasure, as 26 teams face off across the league.

Of the games, four stand out as marquee match-ups. In Boston, the Mavericks visit the Celtics, aiming to extend a three-game winning streak. The C's, meanwhile, are trying to make up ground in a surprisingly competitive Atlantic Division, as they currently sit behind Brooklyn, New York, and Philadelphia in the standings. Speaking of the 76ers, they'll be hosting the Chicago Bulls, who have a slim lead over Milwaukee in the Central Division. In Florida, the Miami Heat—owners of the Eastern Conference's second-best record at 14-5—will take on the streaking Warriors, who have won four straight and are putting pressure on the Clippers in the Pacific Division. And out west, the Spurs will put their NBA-best 18-4 record on the line when they travel to Utah to play the Jazz.
