Dallas Mavericks

  1. Dirk Nowitzki MRI shows only sprain, out Tuesday

    Dec 28, 2010, 2:16 PM EDT

    Dirk Nowitzki, Grant Hill

    Dirk Nowitzki will not suit up when the Mavericks take on the Raptors Tuesday night — and he may miss a couple more games — but the news for Mavericks fans is all good. An MRI of Nowitzki’s knee showed only a sprain, no serious damage, according to Art Garcia of NBA.com (via twitter). He…

  2. Serge Ibaka with the block of the season (so far)

    Dec 28, 2010, 8:40 AM EDT

    Ibaka_block

    Now this is protecting the rim. Tyson Chandler came in for the massive dunk and Serge Ibaka risked being in a poster to go for the rejection — and oh, does he get it. You’re not going to see many better than that this season.

  3. Dirk Nowitzki leaves game with “sore knee,” will have MRI Tuesday

    Dec 28, 2010, 8:00 AM EDT

    Dirk Nowitzki

    Dirk Nowitzki’s shot looked just fine — 13 points on 4-of-6 — but he left Monday night’s game against the Thunder in the second quarter with what was officially called a “sore knee” and now will have an MRI on Tuesday. The play happened when Nowitzki went up for a midrange jumper and was fouled…

  4. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Injuries or not, Dallas just keeps rolling along

    Dec 28, 2010, 7:10 AM EDT

    Jameer Nelson, J.J. Redick, Dwight Howard

    What you missed while contemplating that Elton John is now a father… The Bobcats winning their first game under Paul Silas is our game of the night. Mavericks 103, Thunder 93: Dirk Nowitzki went down in the second quarter — the Mavs are saying it is not serious but he is going to have an…

  5. NBA Power Rankings: Dallas sweeps through Florida, right to the top

    Dec 27, 2010, 2:10 PM EDT

    Dirk Nowitzki, Grant Hill

    Our weekly NBA Power Rankings, where the top four teams are all 9-1 in their last 10 and probably could be ranked in any order. 1. Mavericks (23-5). They move into the top spot on the strength of their sweep of Miami and Orlando on back-to-back nights. That depth Mark Cuban touted really helps them…

  6. Rick Carlisle to miss game after knee injury

    Dec 25, 2010, 7:00 PM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v Dallas Mavericks

    The Mavs have announced that Rick Carlisle will miss Monday night’s Mavericks game in Oklahoma City after knee surgery over the Christmas holiday. Carlisle’s having a rough year, health wise. He missed a game in preseason after fainting in practice. He actually spent some time in the hospital during that episode, and now will miss…

  7. Mavericks find no interest in a trade for Brendan Haywood

    Dec 24, 2010, 10:58 AM EDT

    This summer, Brendan Haywood was going to be the solid, dependable center in the middle that the Mavericks would operate around. Hence the five-year, $42 million deal they gave him. Then Tyson Chandler came in and took over the starting center spot with his play. Haywood is now the expensive backup, playing about 18 or…

  8. Boston still beasts of the East (and they’re enjoying it)

    Dec 22, 2010, 6:22 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Boston Celtics

    Why did the Orlando Magic dramatically reshuffle their roster last weekend? The Celtics. Orlando’s brain trust realized their current roster was not going to beat Boston come May. The Celtics knocked the Magic out of the playoffs last season and this season that gap widened. Orlando had to do something — and in doing so…

  9. Larry Bird congratulates Dirk Nowitzki for passing him on all-time scoring list

    Dec 22, 2010, 10:37 AM EDT

    Image (1) NBA_nowitzki2_250.jpg for post 6235

    When Dirk Nowitzki entered the league as a skinny German kid he became a bit of a sensation for the reasons he is a legend now — the guy can flat out shoot the rock and is 7-feet tall. But if you said he’d end up scoring more points than the Larry Bird you would…

  10. Report: Mavericks throw hat in Melo sweepstakes — but only as a rental

    Dec 21, 2010, 11:56 PM EDT

    Denver Nuggets v Charlotte Bobcats

    Now we have some confirmation on an early post on this site that came with a little bit of speculation — it is indeed the Dallas Mavericks that is the contending team that has thrown it’s hat into the Carmelo Anthony sweepstakes. However they only want him as a “rental,” according to Ken Berger of…

  11. Report: Contending teams consider “renting” Carmelo Anthony for season

    Dec 21, 2010, 4:18 PM EDT

    Denver Nuggets v New York Knicks

    Much of the focus on Carmelo Anthony’s trade prospects has centered on whether Anthony would sign a contract extension to play wherever he was sent. But what if a contending team was willing to trade for him without caring about an extension? That is apparently happening (well, that or it’s a negotiating tactic). Sources told…

  12. Game of the night: Miami looks good, but not Dallas good

    Dec 21, 2010, 2:17 AM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Miami Heat

    The first time the Miami played Dallas back in November, the Heat players were still figuring it out. They seemed to be taking turns on offense more than working off each other, they were playing slow, it wasn’t outright confusion but they looked uncomfortable. But after winning a dozen in a row they were past…

  13. Tyson Chandler is to Dallas as Kevin Garnett is to Boston? Dirk says true.

    Dec 20, 2010, 6:20 PM EDT

    tchandler_Mavs

    Last season, 26 games into the season, Dallas was 19-7 and it went on to a 55-win season. This season their offensive production is almost identical, but the Mavs look like a different, better team. One you might really be scared of come the playoffs. They are 21-5 heading into a showdown with a rejuvenated…

  14. Beaubois finally beginning to heal

    Dec 20, 2010, 5:49 PM EDT

    Beaubois

    After an extremely promising rookie campaign, Rodrigue Beaubois had a rough summer. First, he struggled with his shot in Las Vegas as he tried to turn himself into more of a two-guard. That wasn’t great. Then he broke his foot, which was much worse. The hyper-athletic combo guard hasn’t played a minute this season, and…

  15. Dallas “touches base” with Denver about Melo, but reality says no way

    Dec 15, 2010, 2:53 PM EDT

    Carmelo Anthony

    We’re not telling you about this because it is likely to happen — you’re more likely to read a headline that says “President Obama, Rush Limbaugh now BFFs” — but rather to show just how widespread the interest in Carmelo Anthony is around the league. The Dallas Mavericks have “continued to touch base” with the…

  16. Should the Lakers be worried about the Spurs, Mavericks?

    Dec 15, 2010, 1:42 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Denver Nuggets

    The NBA championship is not decided in December. The NBA season is a long slog where contending teams want to develop good habits, win games and stay healthy for the second season. We get that. But we can’t help but wonder… When you look at the West right now what do you see? Dallas just…

  17. Mark Cuban tries not to yell at players, chooses refs instead

    Dec 14, 2010, 3:42 PM EDT

    Image (1) cuban-thumb-250x166-11958.jpg for post 2059

    Mark Cuban tries not to, which is more than we can say for Donald Sterling. If you are invested — emotionally and financially — as an NBA owner, you bet you would get frustrated when your team doesn’t play well. Los Angeles Clippers owner Sterling has taken that frustration out by heckling players during games,…

  18. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Dallas had to lose sometime

    Dec 14, 2010, 3:34 AM EDT

    Bogut_Ilyasova

    What you missed while reminiscing about how great Moses Malone was… Our game of the night was LeBron James’ team besting his good friend Chris Paul’s team…. Bucks 103, Mavericks 99: Dallas has played some very good zone defense during the 12-game win streak they had entering this game — Brandon Jennings carved it up…

  19. NBA Power Rankings: There are some long winning streaks out there

    Dec 13, 2010, 1:15 PM EDT

    Dirk Nowitzki, Jason Terry, Dallas Mavericks

    Our weekly NBA Power Rankings, where if it were a seven-game series we’d take any of the next three teams below Dallas to come out on top, but when you win 12 in a row you get to keep the top spot. 1. Mavericks (19-4). They’ve won an even dozen in a row now. In…

  20. When billionaires joke around: Mark Cuban calls Mikhail Prokhorov a “p***y”

    Dec 10, 2010, 4:30 PM EDT

    NBA All-Star Celebrity Game Presented By Final Fantasy XIII

    UPDATE 4:30 pm: As we kind of expected, this seems to be a joke between the two via the media. Stefan Bondy of the Daily News, who wrote the original story, got a text from Prokhorov in response to the original comment: “I think Mark has it wrong. I don’t like cats.” Other media there…

  21. Mark Cuban calls the Heat the best team in the league

    Dec 9, 2010, 10:00 PM EDT

    Image (1) cuban-thumb-250x166-11958.jpg for post 2059

    The Dallas Mavericks have won 10 in a row. They have the second best record in the whole of the NBA, trailing only the Spurs — and Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said recently the Mavericks were probably the best team in the league right now. Both Dallas’ offense and defense are in the top 10…

  22. Rashad McCants headed to China

    Dec 9, 2010, 12:16 PM EDT

    mccants_sitting

    Rashad McCants apparently wants to get paid. He was playing with the Texas Legends of the D-League — where the maximum salary is $25,000 a year, which he was going to donate to charity — looking to make it back to the NBA. But his agent informed the Mavericks and Legends that he was leaving…

  23. NBA Power Rankings, ones that will make Mark Cuban smile

    Dec 6, 2010, 1:24 PM EDT

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

    Our weekly NBA Power Rankings. Dallas, Boston and Denver all on seven-games or longer winning streaks… and the Knicks could join them this week. 1. Mavericks (16-4). Winners of nine in a row, they are getting fantastic play from Tyson Chandler and Jason Kidd… which makes you wonder if they can keep it up as…

  24. Buy Shawn Marion’s house, get Super Bowl tickets.

    The housing market is still slumping. If you’re going to sell your home in this market, you’re going to have to have some kind of incentive. Like Super Bowl tickets. Buy Shawn Marion’s former home in Florida and that is just what you get, according to FanHouse. Marion is offering four club-level Super Bowl tickets…

  25. Mark Cuban on Mark Cuban

    Dec 3, 2010, 5:52 PM EDT

    Image (1) Cuban_Stern-thumb-250x166-21115.jpg for post 4353

    If you owned an NBA team, wouldn’t you want to be like Mark Cuban? Injecting yourself in the personnel debates, working out in the facilities, flying with the team, taking shots on the court before games. He is a fan/owner. He’s having fun, but he is also very smart and self-aware. And that comes through…
