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

    Apr 15, 2011, 11:32 AM EST

    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…

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

    Apr 10, 2011, 11:30 AM EST

    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…

  3. Jason Kidd leads Mavericks late in win over the Suns

    The Suns tried their best to outlast the Mavericks on Sunday, swapping out 40 percent of their starting lineup to try to put the right pieces in place in an effort to begin an improbable run to the postseason. Phoenix played well early, but Dallas made the right adjustments defensively, and got huge fourth quarters…

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

    Mar 24, 2011, 12:50 PM EST

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

    Mar 10, 2011, 1:27 PM EST

    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…

  6. Dirk may return against Grizzlies Saturday

    Jan 15, 2011, 4:30 PM EST

    Portland Trail Blazers v Dallas Mavericks

    The Mavericks need Dirk Nowitzki back, like for real, like now. And on Saturday, if CBSSports.com’s Ken Berger is on point, they could get him back. Berger reports that Rick Carlisle admitted Saturday they could see the Big German Machine back in action after the Mavericks have lost seven of nine without him, tumbling from…

  7. Kevin Durant realized Rick Carlisle was open

    Jan 7, 2011, 4:10 PM EST

    Kevin Durant, Richard Jefferson

    In case you haven’t seen it, here’s the video of the odd ending of the Thunder win over the Mavericks last night. The Thunder were up 7 with 10 seconds left, Dallas was done fouling and usually somebody just dribbles out the clock. But then Kevin Durant realized that Mavericks coach Rick Carlisle was open…

  8. Rick Carlisle to miss game after knee injury

    Dec 25, 2010, 7:00 PM EST

    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…

  9. Report: Mavericks Brendan Haywood argued with coach, sat a game

    Nov 27, 2010, 8:00 PM EST

    Brendan Haywood has been watching his minutes get squeezed by the rejuvenated play of Tyson Chandler — then on Friday he didn’t play at all. That’s because he was suspended for a game after getting into an argument with Dallas coach Rick Carlisle, according to an ESPNDallas report. New York-based agent Andy Miller said Saturday…

  10. NBA Season Preview: The Dallas Mavericks

    Oct 13, 2010, 2:11 PM EST

    Dirk Nowitzki

    Last season: 55-27, which was enough to nab the West’s second seed before losing a tight series to the Spurs in the first round of the playoffs. It was Dallas’ tenth consecutive 50-win season, but also their fourth first-round exit over that same span. Head Coach: Rick Carlisle, an excellent coach driven by detail, famous…

  11. Mavericks Coach Rick Carlisle back on the job

    Oct 11, 2010, 3:46 PM EST

    rcarlisle_mavericks

    What are things doctors tell you about staying healthy? Reduce stress, eat right, get plenty of sleep. Three things that coaches do not get. Not in the NBA, not really in any professional or college sport by and large. Long hours, irregular eating schedules that mean too much greasy food, travel and disrupted sleeping patterns…

  12. Mavericks coach Carlisle out of hospital, back at work (but taking tomorrow off)

    Oct 8, 2010, 7:52 PM EST

    Dallas Mavericks v Denver Nuggets, Game 1

    Rick Carlisle was in good spirits, joking as he left the hospital Friday afternoon just hours after passing out on the court during a Dallas Mavericks practice. After he left the hospital he went back to work. Yes, I’m serious. NBA coaches are serious workaholics. Carlisle spoke to ESPN radio, as reported by Mike Fisher…

  13. Mavericks coach Rick Carlisle collapses on court, now out of hospital

    UPDATE 6:00 pm: Rick Carlisle has been released from the hospital, according to the Associated Press. That is certainly a good sign. The same report says the Mavericks are not saying if Carlisle, 50, will accompany the team to California. UPDATE 3:49 pm: Art Garcia of NBA.com spoke to Carlisle and tweeted the coach said…

  14. Good news for the Mavs: Rodrigue Beaubois' broken foot is getting better all the time

    Sep 30, 2010, 8:01 PM EST

    Over the summer, the Dallas Mavericks shot for LeBron James, but fell short. They tried for Dwyane Wade, but no dice. Then came Joe Johnson, but he wasn’t interested. They altered their plan of attack and were linked to Andre Iguodala and Al Jefferson in trade discussions, but the Mavs couldn’t get a deal done.…

  15. Dirk Nowitzki is going to get some help this season. No, really. They mean it this time.

    Sep 22, 2010, 10:01 AM EST

    Last season Dirk Nowitzki played 2,011 minutes, 37.5 minutes per game. Almost identical to the season before that. Both of those increases from the season before that. Every year training camp rolls around and the Dallas Mavericks talk about not pushing Dirk Nowitzki so hard during the regular season, saving him for the playoffs a…

  16. Rodrigue Beaubois is off crutches, hopes to be ready for the Mavs' season opener

    Sep 10, 2010, 4:35 PM EST

    Rodrigue Beaubois’ broken foot put a huge damper on the French national team’s chances at the FIBA World Championships, but with an already limited team (Tony Parker, Mickael Pietrus, Ronny Turiaf, and Joakim Noah were all notable NBA no-gos), France would have faced a long and trying road with or without Beaubois. Now, with France…

  17. Dallas learning from playoffs: Cuban says Beaubois could start next year

    May 6, 2010, 11:10 AM EST

    Rodrigue Beaubois is a little ball of energy. When he was on the court the energy of the Dallas Mavericks changed — they attacked with penetration. Their tempo increased. They broke down defenses. And it was all done with a little flair. Then throughout the playoffs, Beaubois sat. And sat. And when he got his…

  18. Rick Carlisle defends choice not to play Beaubois, because everyone else was so good

    May 3, 2010, 2:38 PM EST

    Mavericks coach Rick Carlisle went with what he trusted over what had worked for key stretches of game six against the Spurs, and for the series. Rodrigue Beaubois sat for five games, and when he did get meaningful minutes in game six — and played well — he still sat in the fourth quarter. It…

  19. Ou est Rodrigue Beaubois?

    Apr 30, 2010, 11:33 AM EST

    One of the things that Pete Carroll did to return USC to the college football elite was open up the competition — the best player plays. Seniority be damned. Doesn’t matter if you’re a senior, if the freshman is better, he gets your spot. Seems logical, but it is shockingly rare in sports, as coaches…

  20. NBA Playoffs: San Antonio will not be deterred, finished of Dallas in six

    Apr 30, 2010, 12:55 AM EST

    With the Dallas Mavericks down, the Denver Nuggets on the brink, the Phoenix Suns decidedly mortal, and the Utah Jazz dinged up, the San Antonio Spurs would like to respectfully enter their name for consideration as the non-LA team to beat in the West. They looked every bit of it in their resilient game (and…

  21. NBA playoffs: The Dallas Mavericks are setting their phasers to 'kill'

    Apr 15, 2010, 10:47 AM EST

    No team in the West has better personnel to better match the Lakers than the Mavs. If you want perimeter defenders with length, Dallas has Shawn Marion, Rodrigue Beaubois, and DeShawn Stevenson. If you want bigs to match up with Pau Gasol and possibly Andrew Bynum, Dallas has Brendan Haywood and Erick Dampier. If you…

  22. Mavericks work out Von Wafer, but nothing formal yet

    Feb 20, 2010, 10:23 AM EST

    UPDATE: The Mavs have also brought in Rashad McCants for a look-see. Von Wafer’s been fluttering around the outskirts of the league after returning from Olympiakos in Greece (who you’ll remember as the team former-Hawk Josh Childress plays for). He was rumored to sign with Houston, who he was with last season, then Memphis, and…
