    NBA: Dallas Mav Monta Ellis' Could've-Been Game Winner Vs. Warriors Was Goaltended

    It's cold comfort now, a day-and-a-half after Stephen Curry's game-ending dagger lifted the Golden State Warriors to a 122-120 victory over the Mavs at the American Airlines Center on Tuesday night, but the NBA has ruled that the Jermaine O'Neal "block" that set the stage for Curry's heroics wasn't ...

    How to Make a New Holiday Tradition at Jerry World

    Sometimes a lack of tradition can be a tradition unto itself. I think there are people in my life who feel bad about that, but having no obligations during the holidays brings the same wild sense of freedom as having a vacation day while the rest of the world works. The day is your own, the streets ... More >>

    Mavs Win, Clinch 11th Consecutive Playoff Berth

    ​I know the big news over the weekend for the Dallas Mavericks was another home loss to another potential playoff opponent - this time to the San Antonio Spurs - but the fine print after last night's blowout of the lowly Golden State Warriors was a clinched playoff spot.

In typically unpredictable, unsettling fashion, they went 2-2. I'll go on Channel 52 tonight at 6:30 - fingers crossed - and fake like I can a ... More >>
