DALLAS – The Dallas Mavericks had their annual Thanksgiving dinner on Friday at the team’s corporate headquarters.

Everyone from the players, coaches and front office staff dined on the cuisine that was catered by Pecan Lodge. Coach Rick Carlisle called it an “important” day for the franchise.

“It’s a bonding day for our franchise,” Carlisle said. “People on the business side do tons of work to get people in the seats to make the day-to-day lives of the players better, more productive and more meaningful.

“It’s a day of appreciation, and really it’s a Thanksgiving dinner. It happens on different days each year because of the schedule. This year we’re relatively close to it, so it’s good.”

The Mavs (6-8) host the two-time defending world champion Golden State Warriors on Saturday, play at Memphis on Monday and entertain the Brooklyn Nets on Wednesday.
