Mavs set second European opponent

After Dirk Nowitzki plays for the first time on native soil in an NBA uniform against eight-time German Champions Alba Berlin at the 02 World Arena on Oct. 6, the former MVP and his Dallas Mavericks teammates will travel from Berlin to Barcelona to face 17-time Spanish Champions FC Barcelona Regal of the Euroleague on Oct. 9.

The NBA officially announced the first leg of the trip earlier this week.

This is the sixth edition of the NBA Europe Live Tour that features teams traveling the continent to play in a series of preseason games against top Euroleague opposition. It is the first the Mavs will participate. The Boston Celtics will play games in Istanbul and Milan.
