Dallas Mavericks

  1. Tyson Chandler goes Braveheart in video. Or maybe Gladiator.

    Apr 15, 2011, 11:42 AM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Washington Wizards

    I’m pumped up. And I don’t even care about the Mavericks. This video — from the brilliant minds in Mavericks marketing — should get the crowd up and ready to go in Dallas (via Ball Don’t Lie). It’s very Braveheart, we just need Chandler in some blue and white face paint and we’re good to…

  2. Beaubois out, Stevenson in as playoff starter in Dallas

    Apr 15, 2011, 11:32 AM EDT

    DeShawn Stevenson

    And this is where Dallas really misses Caron Butler… After Rodrigue Beaubois struggled as the team’s starting two guard since returning from an injury, Mavericks coach Rick Carlisle has decided to put DeShawn Stevenson back in as the starter, according to Tim MacMahon at ESPN Dallas. While Carlisle went Belichick and tried to hide his…

  3. How they win it all — path to the ring for the top seeds

    Apr 14, 2011, 9:22 PM EDT

    Lakers Ring Ceremony Basketball

    Boston’s Glen Davis has a great name for it: The Campaign for Champagne. This year more than any other in recent memory, the path to the championship seems open for a number of teams. The Lakers have the last two titles, but they are flawed, inconsistent and often bored. Boston and San Antonio are old, Chicago and…

  4. NBA Playoff Preview: Dallas vs. Portland

    Apr 14, 2011, 1:38 PM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v Dallas Mavericks

    SEASON RECORDS Mavericks: 57-25 (No. 3 seed) Trail Blazers: 48-34 (No. 6 seed) SEASON SERIES Tied 2-2, with Portland winning the most recent two games including one just two weeks ago (a game Tyson Chandler missed, so be careful about reading much into it). KEY INJURIES Mavericks: Roddy Beaubois sprained his foot in the season…

  5. We’ve got your Western Conference playoff schedule here

    Apr 14, 2011, 12:25 PM EDT

    Mark Cuban

    I keep saying it because I believe it — one of the top four seeds in the West is going to get knocked off in the first round. Not sure who, but the Dallas/Portland and Oklahoma City/Denver matchups are going to be tough ones. (Sorry Cuban, but you know us Internet reporters…) Well, tough for…

  6. Playoff Scenarios: How the West will be won (the No 2 seed anyway)

    Apr 13, 2011, 8:12 AM EDT

    Atlanta Hawks v Los Angeles Lakers

    One day of games remain and five seeds still up for grabs in the Western Conference — and you say there isn’t parity in the NBA. Okay, there isn’t parity. Not really. But for one day we can at least pretend because a lot of things can happen in the Western Conference. (The East is…

  7. Is Steve Nash the best offensive player of his generation?

    Apr 12, 2011, 6:04 PM EDT

    Steve Nash

    Because of the way Steve Nash plays, it’s hard to think of him as one of the greatest offensive players of all time. He doesn’t go off for 50-point outbursts, and he doesn’t just grab the ball in isolation and score time and time again. He needs good teammates to pass to in order to…

  8. Jason Terry is not sorry about sideline spat with Carlisle, Barea

    Apr 10, 2011, 11:30 AM EDT

    Dirk Nowitzki, Jason Terry, Dallas Mavericks

    Jason Terry became so upset at a miscommunication on Friday night with J.J. Barea that he had a verbal confrontation with Barea and his coach during a timeout. The result was Rick Carlisle sending Terry to the end of the bench and keeping him there while the Mavericks made a comeback. On Saturday, they addressed…

  9. Karl says Nuggets would rather face Mavericks than Thunder in first round

    Apr 7, 2011, 8:57 PM EDT

    New York Knicks v Denver Nuggets

    Coaches and players almost never stray from the “I don’t care who we face in the playoffs, it’s about us doing our thing” mantra. Which is a load of fertilizer, by the way — they all know the playoffs are about matchups and they want to get the more favorable ones. They just won’t talk…

  10. Mavs’ Butler still hoping to return, “unlikely” for first round

    Apr 7, 2011, 11:17 AM EDT

    Image (1) cbutlerc_back-thumb-250x140-18305.jpg for post 3695

    We’ve told you before that Dallas forward Caron Butler is busting his, um, hump to get back to the team this season. He suffered a ruptured patella tendon three months ago but will not give up the dream of being there for a playoff run. He won’t be back for the regular season, and now…

  11. Matt Barnes suspended for one game

    Apr 1, 2011, 10:42 PM EDT

    Matt Barnes

    UPDATE 10:42 pm: Lakers coach Phil Jackson spoke about Barnes and said it’s all good to come to the aid of a teammate, but you better know the situation. “He’s definitely got to check that stuff at the door in the playoffs,” Jackson said. “You can’t play short-handed in the playoffs.” Asked if he was…

  12. Jason Terry calls Matt Barnes soft as “toilet paper”

    Apr 1, 2011, 4:44 PM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Los Angeles Lakers

    The fight — well, what passes for a fight in the NBA, Jason Terry pushed Steve Blake, they bumped chests, Matt Barnes came flying in to play protector, there was a lot more pushing  — was Thursday night, but the war of words has continued into Friday. Mark Cuban blasted Chris Webber over calling the…

  13. Mark Cuban fires back at Chris Webber over “soft” comment

    Apr 1, 2011, 4:05 PM EDT

    Image (1) Cuban-fist.png for post 4296

    After the Mavs were laid to waste by the Lakers last night — and after they pulled out a classic NHL maneuver and started being physical once the game was out of reach — Chris Webber went on TNT and ripped the Mavs. He called them “soft.” We linked to it in our Morning One…

  14. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Boston, Lakers send some messages

    Apr 1, 2011, 7:54 AM EDT

    Celtics

    What you missed while watching the Hangover 2 trailer…. Celtics 107, Spurs 97: The Celtics ultimately will go as Rajon Rondo goes. He’s been injured and slumping. He’s back, and if he is the Celtics are back with him. You know the Celtics are going to defend well (they still need a stabilizing presence in…

  15. Tyson Chandler sees home loss to San Antonio as a turning point for the Dallas defense

    Mar 25, 2011, 9:30 PM EDT

    108364400_crop_340x234

    Last Friday, the San Antonio Spurs went into Dallas and rocked the Mavericks on their home court. The final margin was just six points after a late-game flurry from the Mavs, but the Spurs were in control throughout. San Antonio put together an impressive offensive showcase, as the Spurs’ “Big Three” combined for 80 points…

  16. For a 38th birthday present, Kidd may get some games off

    Mar 24, 2011, 12:50 PM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Phoenix Suns

    It is not true that when Jason Kidd made is first shot in the NBA he then had to climb the ladder and remove the ball from the peach basket. But Jason Kidd turned 38 on Wednesday and has played in all 70 games for the Mavericks this season. They need him at 100 percent…

  17. Former All-Star Mark Aguirre falls at gym, in serious condition

    Mar 23, 2011, 4:49 PM EDT

    Mark Aguirre Mavericks

    Mark Aguirre, the former Piston player and Dallas Mavericks All-Star, fell at the gym Wednesday and is listed in serious condition, according to the Dallas Morning News. Reports coming to Mavericks officials after practice was that he “was OK” the paper reports, but there were few details. Apparently he collapsed while running on a treadmill…

  18. Lakers resurgence reminds us bigger is better

    Mar 23, 2011, 2:30 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Utah Jazz, - Game 4

    Why, every year, do people fall for this? Back in December Lakers fans were freaking out — and the rest of the league hoped they were right — because something seemed off about the Lakers. They weren’t bad, but the two-time defending champions were not dominating everyone, were not focused, were not defending, were not…

  19. Nowitzki probably to play for Germany this summer

    Mar 21, 2011, 11:03 AM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Washington Wizards

    Two things we know are going to happen this summer: 1) There is going to be a lockout (sorry folks, but it is happening). 2) Germany is going to be trying to qualify for the 2012 London Olympics. That’s leading Dirk Nowitzki to think about helping his nation qualify for the games, he told the…

  20. Video: Roddy Beaubois brings a little flair to Dallas

    Mar 21, 2011, 8:15 AM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v New Orleans Hornets

    Roddy Beaubois is starting to find a groove, getting his minutes up and looking more comfortable. Which is a good thing for the Mavericks. And he’s still got that flair Dallas needs. As evidence, we bring you a highlight from Dallas’ route of Golden State Sunday. Enjoy.

  21. Sixth man of the year, Lamar Odom or Jason Terry?

    Mar 20, 2011, 2:22 PM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v Los Angeles Lakers

    With a month to go, it looks like the sixth man of the year is a two-man race: Jason Terry and Lamar Odom. Glen “Big Baby” Davis, George Hill and the often over looked Thaddeus Young of the Sixers deserve some votes, some consideration. But they are all a step behind your two leaders. So…

  22. Caron Butler still working toward a comeback this season

    Mar 19, 2011, 6:10 PM EDT

    Caron Butler

    A ruptured patellar tendon is a particularly troublesome injury for anyone who makes a living with their legs, but Caron Butler apparently isn’t all that impressed with the injury’s potential. After initially being ruled out for the remainder of this season, Butler has been rehabbing relentlessly in an effort to rejoin the Mavs at some…

  23. Jason Kidd admits he might retire if there is a lockout

    Mar 19, 2011, 8:02 AM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Phoenix Suns

    Father time has not been able to stop Jason Kidd. At 38 he has transformed his game, become one of the more deadly three-point shooters around, and he can still lead a team. He has said he wants to play until he’s 40. But a lockout that wipes out all of next season could change…

  24. Best bench lineups in NBA? Stats say look at contenders.

    Mar 18, 2011, 2:35 PM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Chicago Bulls

    Depth can matter more in the regular season than the playoffs, when rotations tighten and stars get extra minutes because games are not as stacked up on top of each other. But depth does matter in getting top seeds and home court, and it does matter in giving a coach matchup flexibility in the playoffs.…

  25. Kobe Bryant injures ankle, may not play Monday vs. Magic

    Mar 13, 2011, 10:30 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Dallas Mavericks

    It has not been a stellar 60 hours for Kobe Bryant. After going into hero mode versus the Heat, chucking up a few clangers and losing, Bryant then put himself through a grueling post-game workout for over an hour in front of the media, which probably made him feel better about himself, but also was…
