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

    Apr 1, 2011, 4:05 PM EDT

    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…

  2. 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…

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

    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…

  4. 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…

  5. 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…

  6. 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…

  7. 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…

  8. 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.

  9. 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…

  10. 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…

  11. 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…

  12. 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.…

  13. 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…

  14. Lakers top Mavs: It’s time to celebrate the arrival of Andrew Bynum

    Mar 13, 2011, 9:00 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Dallas Mavericks

    The Lakers and Mavericks did not play a terrific game Saturday night. Neither team shot better than 45 percent from the field, both were turnover-prone, neither could really get into their offensive flow, and both missed plenty of easy, open shots in spot-up situations. Kobe Bryant tried to do too much, again, this time on…

  15. Amar’e Stoudemire’s technical rescinded, no suspension. Yet.

    Mar 11, 2011, 2:24 PM EDT

    Amare Stoudemire

    I’m not sure we should look at this as Amar’e Stoudemire getting out of jail, just that his sentence was suspended. For now. But it was the right call. The league has rescinded the technical given to Amar’e Stoudemire (and the matching one to Brendan Haywood) during Thursday night’s Mavericks blowout of the Knicks. That…

  16. Kobe plays down his post-game workout in Miami

    Mar 11, 2011, 11:09 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Miami Heat

    “It’s my job,” he said. “You’ve got to work at it.” Vintage Kobe Bryant quote to Kevin Ding of the Orange County Register that sums up why he was shooting baskets in AmericanAirlines Arena two hours after the Lakers had lost to the Heat. A game where Kobe faltered — he shot 2-of-11 in the…

  17. Amar’e Stoudemire picks up 16th technical, suspension pending

    Mar 10, 2011, 10:54 PM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v New York Knicks

    Amar’e Stoudemire’s status for Sunday’s Knicks game against the Pacers is now in doubt as he picked up his 16th technical Thursday night, the number that triggers an automatic one-game suspension. Although, don’t be shocked if the league rescinds this one. Everyone’s favorite referee (*cough, cough*) Bennett Salvatore rushed in with 9:37 left in the…

  18. Marco Belinelli fined $10,000

    Mar 10, 2011, 6:15 PM EDT

    Belinelli_Marco

    The NBA has announced that Marco Belinelli has been fined $10,000 after his flagrant-one foul on the Mavericks’ Shawn Marion was upgraded to a flagrant-two. The foul occurred in the third quarter. If it had been originally ruled a flagrant-two, Belinelli would have been ejected. Instead, Belinelli stayed in the game and scored six points…

  19. Dallas coach calls players “soft,” Jason Terry not too fond of that

    Mar 10, 2011, 1:27 PM EDT

    Dirk Nowitzki, Tony Brown

    If you tuned out last night with Dallas up 7 and one minute to go, you missed one epic collapse. Just the fact the Hornets got three offensive rebounds in the final minute — not to mention 8 straight points — to get the win should tell you how Dallas played. How they lost to…

  20. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Game winners everywhere, but the Clippers don’t need one

    Mar 10, 2011, 4:53 AM EDT

    Paul Pierce, Mo Williams

    What you missed while trying to recreate the movie “Up”… Clippers 108, Celtics 103: Boston had a plan — Blake Griffin was not going to beat them. It’s one thing that Boston’s defense has done well in this “big three era” — take away an opponent’s favorite option (sometimes two or three). Griffin was swarmed…

  21. Mark Cuban has an eye on Ricky Rubio

    Mar 9, 2011, 4:55 PM EDT

    Spain v USA

    Ricky Rubio’s NBA relevance has gone from YouTube sensation to fanboy whimsy to actual draft pick to mythical figure, all with only one real constant: for all of the hype and criticism alike, Rubio has yet to play a single NBA game. It’s incredibly unclear when that might change, and if Rubio’s situation wasn’t tenuous…

  22. Kevin Love ties Moses Malone with record 51 straight double-doubles

    Mar 7, 2011, 10:08 PM EDT

    Kevin Love

    With a three pointer from straight away in the third quarter Tuesday night, Kevin Love recorded his 51st consecutive double-double (at least 10 points and 10 rebounds). That tied Moses Malone for the all-time record. Well, all-time modern record (post NBA/ABA merger). Turns out Wilt Chamberlain did it 224 times back in the day. But…

  23. Mark Cuban, Charlie Sheen talking about a new show. What could go wrong?

    Mar 7, 2011, 11:25 AM EDT

    Charlie Sheen (aka Carlos Irwin Estevez) Disposition Hearing

    Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban has his own television channel, HDNet. Which is cool, I want one. But having a television channel without a hit show is like having an iPhone without apps. As you read this, HDNet is showing some old Cheers reruns (the one where Diane’s cat dies) followed by a Third Eye…

  24. Video: Zach Randolph drains the game winner to beat Mavs

    Mar 7, 2011, 8:20 AM EDT

    Just moments before this play, Dirk Nowitzki hit what looked like the game-winning shot. But then Zach Randolph of the Grizzlies bested him. With a very Dirk-like shot — a high-arcing deep two pointer taken with a hand in his face. The shot Dirk has made a career out of. You can add Dallas to…

  25. To win big, does a team need to lose big first?

    Mar 5, 2011, 7:11 PM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Denver Nuggets, Game 2

    It’s tough spot to be — right in the middle of the NBA pack. If you are the Indiana Pacers right now, or the Memphis Grizzlies, or a host of other teams, you are in a difficult spot. You’re good, probably good enough to make the playoffs but not really be a top three seed.…
