    Mavs Win 10th Consecutive Game, Fail to Impress the Masses

    ​It's not often I stay up late to watch a duel between J.J. Barea and Samuel Dalembert, but last night's 102-100 victory by the Dallas Mavericks over the Sacramento Kings was special. It kicked off the Bob Ortegel-less era with a win. And was the Mavs' 10th consecutive victory. To which ... More >>
