What's next?

- We get 2 days off, then back to the road we go with another tough test, in Dallas, at 11:00 AM. 11:00AM? That's right, Saturday morning for us, early Saturday afternoon for them. I think the early start time is because they have a hockey game at American Airlines Center at 7:30 PM. Will we get Bogut back by then?
