    The Greatest Individual Playoff Performance in the History of Dallas-Fort Worth Sports. Is Dirk's Dominant?

    ​The Mavs can play better than they did in Game 1 of the NBA's Western Conference Finals. For the first time in the playoffs they allowed 100 points, 112 to be exact. The Thunder grabbed 11 offensive rebounds and, according to Mavs' coach Rick Carlisle, corralled 13 of the game's 20 loose bal ... More >>

    Mavs in the West Finals: We've Done This Before

    ​The Mavericks haven't lost an NBA Western Conference Finals series in five years. Of course we all know what happened Dallas advanced this far -- in the 2006 NBA Finals. The come-from-ahead loss to the Heat sent the franchise into a pyschological spiral from which it is just n ... More >>

    At the NBA Trade Deadline, Mavs are All Good. No ... Thanks?

    ​I don't expect a Dallas Mavericks' deal before this afternoon's 2 o'clock NBA trade deadline. Couple of reasons. First and foremost, the Mavs are 41-16 after last night's thumping of the short-handed Utah Jazz and have won 14 of 15 since Dirk Nowitzki's sprained knee healed. ... More >>

    With an Unrealistic Shot at Reaching the Summit, the Mavs Have Stopped Climbing

    ​I'm fascinated by Mount Everest and absolutely bow down to those who have reached its peak. It remains at the, ahem, top of my bucket list. Watching the Dallas Mavericks lose again yesterday -- this time to the lowly 15-26 Detroit Pistons by 14 -- I'm left to equate their demise (that's six ... More >>

    Your Dallas Mavericks are the Second-Best Team in the NBA ... Sorta

    While twiddling my thumbs waiting for the Mavericks - or anyone - to make a significant, deadline-beating NBA trade, I wondered just how good Dallas has been this millenium.

    Mark it down. Avery Johnson will get another NBA head-coaching gig (he says he’s already been contacted by a team, by the way) and bring his new team into the American Airlines Center and kick his old team’s ass. Nothing new, really. It’s the curse of the ex-Maverick. I mean, I think we c ... More >>
