Because for all the positive vibes, roster depth and apparent health coming into the postseason, the franchise that can never get it right needs a cleanse after it finds itself facing a seemingly win-or-else scenario in Game 2 of its first-round series against the Dallas Mavericks. Dallas predictably stole home-court advantage with a 113-103 win Saturday, following the familiar script we’ve all seen from the Clippers, aided by the singular brilliance of Luka Doncic. It wasn’t exactly same chapter, different verse, not for most of the game. In fact, given the earlier events of the day where the Milwaukee Bucks started to exorcise their playoff enema with a last-second overtime win against the Miami Heat, one could surmise some positive playoff juju would travel across the country in enough time to...
    The Dallas Mavericks notch an upset victory over the Los Angeles Clippers with Game 1 victory on Saturday. The Los Angeles Clippers have been the subject of ridicule this past week after being accused of tanking the end of the season to avoid playing the rival Lakers in the NBA Playoffs. If that were actually the case, they have to be regretting their decision, considering they had to contend with the Dallas Mavericks in the first-round. Granted, the Clippers did rest their starters towards the end of the season, so maybe there was some rust in Game 1. Whatever the case may be, the Clippers need to find that magic in the upcoming games. Next: Bucks need overtime to beat Heat in Game 1

Hardaway started in Dallas' first 19 games, and prior to this year was a regular starter in over 83 percent of the Mavericks games since being traded there in 2019. But Dallas was in the midst of a six-game losing streak, staring at an 8-12 record to start the season. Something needed to change, and Carlisle wanted to shake things up. "I called him one night when I found out Maxi [Kleber] was going to be a go for the next game the next day," Carlisle said. "I think it was the second game in January we played at home against Golden State, and I said 'Tim, Maxi is going to be back tomorrow,' and he goes, 'Coach you don't even need to ask. I'm fine...

    MINNEAPOLIS (CBSDFW.COM/AP) — The Dallas Mavericks certainly didn’t look their best Sunday night, allowing Anthony Edwards to score 30 points in his final audition for the NBA Rookie of the Year award, and lead the Minnesota Timberwolves to a 136-121 victory over the postseason-bound Mavs. Luka Doncic had 18 points, six rebounds and six assists in 21 minutes for the Mavericks, who were unharmed by the meaningless defeat. They get the No. 5 seed in the Western Conference playoffs, pitted against the No. 4 seed Los Angeles Clippers beginning next weekend in the first round. It’s a rematch of an intense series last year in the Florida bubble.

    Loading the player... Even after a blowout loss to the Memphis Grizzlies, the Dallas Mavericks are in control of their own playoff seeding spot. A few short weeks ago that seemed impossible, but a 10-3 run has made the Mavs the clear favorite for the 5th seed.  One of the more surprising contributions during this winning run has come from Josh Green. The Australian rookie has struggled for minutes but has impressed in limited time. Here’s why Green should be getting even more minutes.

The Mavericks’ offensive rating is 114.5, good for eighth in the league, but when Doncic isn’t on the court, the rating drops to 107.6, which would be 26th. This is mostly because Doncic is an MVP candidate, but the disparity is also indicative of the Mavs’ personnel.  Jalen Brunson, Josh Richardson, Trey Burke, and Tim Hardaway Jr. are not playmakers....
    DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM/AP) — It was a season sweep with Luka Doncic scoring 24 points and Tim Hardaway Jr. adding 23 to help the Dallas Mavericks beat the Brooklyn Nets 113-109 on Thursday night. Kyrie Irving scored a season-high 45 points for the Nets. They lost a season-high fourth straight game and dropped two games behind Eastern Conference-leading Philadelphia.

    In their biggest game of the season, the Warriors sent a message to the rest of the NBA. “Don’t worry about us.” The Warriors might be feisty and have one of the best players in the history of the NBA at the peak of his powers, but their performance against the Dallas Mavericks Tuesday spoke volumes about the team’s sloppiness, inexperience, and lack of depth. Even if this squad were to advance out of the NBA’s play-in tournament in May, they would likely not be long for the real playoffs. And make no mistake about it, after Tuesday’s blowout loss to Dallas, the Warriors will be in the play-in tournament.

    Sixers’ Joel Embiid scores off of a Dream Shake that no one saw coming. On Monday night, Embiid channeled Hakeem “The Dream” Olajuwon to successfully pull off the Dream Shake move, scoring on Dallas Mavericks’ Willie Cauley-Stein. Despite some early shooting woes, the Sixers center looked smooth as can be ever since sustaining a knee bone bruise a month ago. For the basketball newbies out there, the Dream Shake is a move made famous by Hakeem Olajuwon during his time on the Houston Rockets. Olajuwon, like Embiid, was unusually skilled for a big man, and over the course of his career he perfected a set of offensive movies trademarked as the Dream Shake.

    The Texas Senate has passed a bill requiring the anthem after Mavericks owner Mark Cuban stopped playing the song The Texas Senate has passed a bill that would require professional sports teams with state contracts to play the national anthem before games, after Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban attempted to stop playing the anthem earlier this season. The bill passed on Thursday in an overwhelming 28-2 vote, with bipartisan support from 11 Democrats, and now must pass in the state House before being signed into law. The bill became a legislative 'priority' for Lieutenant Governor Dan Patrick in February, when it emerged that the Mavericks had quietly removed the anthem from pre-game ceremonies for 13 games. Billionaire owner Cuban reversed his position and reinstated the anthem after the NBA issued a harsh rebuke stating that the anthem was 'expected' before all games.  Cuban relented and played the anthem before the February 10 home game (above). The new bill would ban government entities from entering contracts with pro teams without a written agreement from the team to play the anthem...

Still, the baby shouldn’t be thrown out with the bathwater.

    The Dallas Mavericks have found a rhythm and are on a four-game winning streak at the moment. While the entire team should be credited for stepping up, Luka Doncic deserves special praise for everything he’s been doing this season. Former Maverick Dennis Scott feels the same way too!  Doncic was regarded as a special talent ever since his rookie season in the NBA. He averaged 21.2 points, 7.8 rebounds, and 6.0 assists in the 2018/19 season and the numbers have only increased over the years.  As for the current season, Luka Doncic is the fifth top scorer in the NBA. He averages 28.6 PPG and has particularly been impressive in the last few games.  “We always talk about our great players in our league. They make everyone better around them. That’s why he’s come into the league in the short couple of years and has become special,” Scott hailed Doncic recently.  “There’s no way you give someone of that caliber two or three drills to get to the paint without collapsing and getting the ball out of his hands,” he...

    DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM/AP) — After a defeat two nights earlier, the Dallas Mavericks dazzled and Luka Doncic put on a show Wednesday night against the Los Angeles Clippers. Luka thrilled the crowd early with a four-point play after getting fouled by Kawhi Leonard, then turned for a lengthy acknowledgement of those fans after one of several late buckets that helped keep Dallas comfortably in front.

    Former NBA center Shawn Bradley was left paralyzed after being rear-ended by a motorist while cycling near his Utah home in January, the Dallas Mavericks announced Wednesday. The collision occurred on January 20 in St. George, Utah, leaving Bradley with a traumatic spinal cord injury that left him paralyzed. The 48-year-old has since undergone neck fusion surgery and spent the last eight weeks undergoing rehabilitation at a local hospital. Bradley, one of the tallest players in NBA history at 7-foot-6, has not spoken about the incident publicly, but according to the Mavericks, he hopes to become an advocate for bicycling safety.

    DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM/AP) — The home court wasn’t an advantage for the Dallas Mavericks Monday night. Kawhi Leonard scored 22 points, Marcus Morris Sr. added 14 in a rare start and the Clippers beat the Mavs 109-99. The Clippers were playing Dallas for the first time since a 51-point blowout on their home court in December, and a night after a 20-point loss in New Orleans. The NBA’s only remaining unbeaten team on the back end of consecutive games improved to 7-0 and tied Phoenix (7-1) for the most such victories. READ MORE: Sens.

    Derek Chauvin trial jury: What we know about the jurors selected so far Authorities charge two men for assault on U.S. Capitol Police officer Brian Sicknick Reality comes at you fast in the NBA. Less than two years ago, the Dallas Mavericks signed Kristaps Porzingis to a five-year, $158 million max deal. Last season -- his first in a Mavericks uniform -- Porzingis teamed up with Luka Doncic to form the best offense in NBA history heading into the bubble, where he averaged over 30 points and nine rebounds a night in the seeding games and 23 points on 53 percent 3-point shooting in three playoff games before tearing his meniscus.  © Provided by CBS Sports This season, Dallas reportedly has already looked into trading him.  "They've definitely sniffed around on him," a league assistant general manager told Bleacher Report prior to the All-Star break. "They're taking the temperature, because they know at some point it's gonna come around." SNY's Ian Begley specifically reported that Dallas gauged the Golden State Warriors' interest in Porzingis.

    Many players in the NBA jump teams in order to win a ring. A lack of success over the years makes players lose patience and forces them to switch teams. But Denver Nuggets star Nikola Jokic isn’t interested in such business. During their post-game press conference last night, Jokic made it clear that he wants to win in Denver. “If I win it with Nuggets… that’s gonna be (more) than if I go or someone else joins us… that’s even better, maybe someone joins us. My personal opinion is I’d rather win it with Nuggets than with another team,” he said. Jokic is eager to follow the similar path of fellow European Dirk Nowitzki. The German stayed with the Mavericks his full career and also got them their first-ever championship. That was a huge achievement, and Jokic is keen to pull off something similar and stay loyal to his team. The Nuggets placed their faith in him being a franchise player for them by giving him a m ax contract before he even made an All-Star appearance. And now, he...
    OKLAHOMA CITY (CBSDFW.COM/AP) — Two powerhouses with the Dallas Mavericks, Luka Doncic and Kristaps Porzingis, sat out in the game against the Oklahoma City Thunder… and it showed. Shai Gilgeous-Alexander scored 32 points helping the Thunder top the Mavs 116-108 Thursday night. The Thunder made five of their first six 3-point attempts and built a 35-19 advantage after one quarter, then held off a late Dallas rally. READ MORE: Physical Therapists: Working From Home Could Be Breaking Your Body Dallas cut the deficit to 103-101 with just under 2 minutes remaining but Gilgeous-Alexander scored on back-to-back possessions and made six consecutive free throws in the closing minutes. “He made it look so easy,” veteran Al Horford said. “His shot-making ability and poise continue to impress me. We needed those buckets, and he took us home.” Oklahoma City outrebounded Dallas 21-5 in the first period and finished the half making 10 of its 14 3-point attempts (71%).

    March 5, 2021 | 1:20 pm Dallas Mavericks, NBA team will accept dogecoin thanks to the fact that its owner, Mark Cuban, is in favor of cryptocurrencies. Cuban told DealBook that his NBA team will accept the cryptocurrency dogecoin as payment for tickets and merchandise. According to DealBook, Cuban said the team has chosen to accept dogecoin for the novelty. Sometimes in business you have to do fun things Cuban said Cuban added that he “strongly encourages” parents to ask their teens about dogecoin if they don’t know what it is about. “For those of you who want to learn more about dogecoin, we strongly encourage you to talk to your teens on TikTok and ask them about it. They can explain everything to you, ”Cuban said. Dogecoin isn’t the only cryptocurrency Mavericks fans can spend on the team; they can also spend bitcoin. Cuban was previously a skeptic of bitcoin, but his team began accepting the cryptocurrency in 2019 through the payment processor BitPay. In recent months, the billionaire entrepreneur has also discussed the potential he...
    If all breaks right for Luka Doncic, he can dream of one day matching Steve Nash as an eight-time NBA All-Star, two-time MVP and Hall of Famer. So, it’s noteworthy that Nash — in his first season coaching the Nets — sounds almost envious of Doncic’s talent and make-up, from one guard to another. “Luka is one of the most exciting talents we’ve seen,” Nash said after Friday’s practice to prepare for facing Doncic and the Mavericks on Saturday night. “Do I see some of myself in him? If I were 6-foot-8 and 230 pounds, yeah. That’s a big difference when you’re 6-foot-2, 175 pounds.” Mavericks owner Mark Cuban and team president Donnie Nelson started the Nash-Doncic comparisons after a trade with the Hawks to acquire their new star during the 2018 NBA Draft. As Doncic burst onto the scene as a rookie, Nash, who was working for the Warriors as a consultant at the time, upped the ante by calling him “maybe the best 20-year-old the NBA has ever seen.” Doncic will turn 22 on Sunday, and Nash’s high...
    Magic Johnson is no longer officially in the NBA microcosm, but he is very meticulous about what is going on in the league. In fact, by the middle of the season, the Lakers legend has named his 3 biggest disappointments, and there are some big names in the equation. As the All-Star Game approaches, it’s time to take stock of the season.

    DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM/AP) — It was all about the last second shots and this time Maverick Luka Doncic slammed the scorer’s table in joy, not anger. The Dallas sensation hit a tiebreaking 3-pointer with 0.1 seconds remaining — his second go-ahead 3 in the final minute — and the Mavs avoided a fourth-quarter collapse in a 110-107 victory over the Boston Celtics on Tuesday night.

    Getty Reports say that the Dallas Mavericks are doing some initial work on a potential Kristaps Porzingis trade. With the trade deadline approaching, the Mavericks have reportedly reached out to the Golden State Warriors to determine if they are interested in making a trade to acquire the Latvian center. The Mavs Reach Out to the Warriors Getty The Mavericks have not performed to their full potential despite having star Luka Doncic as a part of their roster. They are currently sitting with a record of 14-15 in ninth place in the Western Conference.

    The Dallas Mavericks are reportedly shopping around Kristaps Porzingis and the Golden State Warriors could possibly be interested. This NBA season has not gone as planned for neither the Dallas Mavericks nor the Golden State Warriors. After finishing last year as one of the most exciting young teams in the league, the Mavericks currently hold the ninth spot in the Western Conference with a record of 14-15. The Warriors have been without superstar Splash Brother Klay Thompson, and lead the Mavericks by one game for the eighth prospective playoff spot. One of the most disappointing pieces on the Mavs’ chessboard this season has been Kristaps Porzingis. While Luka Doncic is still garnering All-Star attention, Kristaps Porzingis has been rapidly declining, at least on the defensive end of the floor. Porzingis has only played in 17 of the Mavericks’ 29 games so far this season and the organization has reportedly started to check the temperature on him as far as trade value goes. The Golden State Warriors appear to be one of the teams that the Mavericks have reached out to.The Mavericks have...
    DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM/AP) — It’s been a rough week or so in Texas, and as the state thaws sports play resumes in the state. In Dallas, Tim Hardaway Jr. scored 20 of his 29 points to help the Mavericks build a big first-half lead in what would be a 102-92 win over the Memphis Grizzlies on Monday night. Hardaway repeatedly made it to the hoop without much help from Luka Doncic, who didn’t really ‘show up’ until later in the game.

    Luka Doncic continued his hot form against the Portland Trail Blazers. Unfortunately, his contributions failed to save the Mavs from a close defeat. This loss pushed their record to 13-15, and many are starting to wonder if the Mavericks are really a top contender in the West. In their recent defeat to the Blazers, the Mavs could have tied the game in the dying minutes.

    Atlantic writer Jemele Hill is sticking up for Dallas Mavericks Owner Mark Cuban for canceling the playing of the national anthem and saying that we should no longer play the song at sporting events. The former ESPN host blasted the national anthem in her first sentence in her Feb. 14 article, entitled, The Problem With Mandatory Patriotism in Sports. “Playing the “The Star-Spangled Banner” at sporting events has become an empty gesture of patriotism,” Hill wrote with her first few words. The left-wing activist praised Dallas Mavericks Owner Mark Cuban for his reported attempt to put a halt to the playing of the anthem. A source close to Cuban said that the decision to stop playing the anthem was made because not everyone feels “represented” by the national anthem. While the NBA quickly disabused Cuban of his notion of ending the song, Jemele Hill still thinks the idea of canceling the national anthem is the right move for professional sports. As far as Hill is concerned, “the Mavericks should have held their ground” and continued to impose their ban on...
    Within a 48-hour time period, the NBA has celebrated the Chinese New Year while the Dallas Mavericks were attempting to cancel the Star-Spangled Banner. On Tuesday, a report in The Athletic revealed that Mavericks Owner Mark Cuban had directed his team to stop playing the national anthem. On Wednesday, the same day that the league overruled Cuban and issued a statement mandating that “all teams” play the anthem, the league honored their “largest fan base” by celebrating the Chinese New Year at stadiums throughout the league.

    The Dallas Stars will proudly continue to play the national anthem before games. The NBA has been consumed by chaos after Mark Cuban tried to end the song prior to games for the Mavericks, which the league ultimately ended up blocking.

    Mavericks players, with Doncic right, during the anthem at a game in Orlando in August.Ashley Landis / . One of the common points in the major leagues of professional sports in the United States is that, in the run-up to all games, players and the public take a break to listen to the interpretation of the national anthem standing. The Dallas Mavericks, however, have become the exception. Since the NBA began in December, the anthem has not been heard at the American Airlines Center. The fact had gone unnoticed until now.

The team is done playing the national anthem before games. The Mavericks, owner Mark Cuban told The Athletic on Monday night, have not played the anthem during any of their 13 home games at the American Airlines Center so far this season by design. Only one of those games — Monday’s 127-122 win against the Minnesota Timberwolves — had limited fans in attendance, something that likely allowed the decision to slip under the radar.

Tim Hardaway Jr. added 24 points off the bench as the Mavericks won their second straight at home after a six-game skid at the American Airlines Center. They led by 25 in the second quarter before the Timberwolves pulled within 123-120 with 50 seconds left.

    The Sound of Music cast: Where are they now? The Biggest Salary Negotiation Mistakes You’re Making The Dallas Mavericks look bad right now, but they can still get back on course Coming into this season, the Dallas Mavericks were one of the darlings of the NBA, and rightfully so. © Provided by For The Win They were only a few games away from beating the 2-seed Los Angeles Clippers in the first round of the playoffs last season. Luka Doncic is already one of the best players in the league in just his third season. So, yeah, it makes total sense for people to pick the Mavericks for potentially deep playoff runs. And it also made sense that Doncic was a trendy MVP pick for people coming into the season. The only problem is they look absolutely nothing like the team they did last season. In their best player’s words, they’ve been “terrible” at times. They’re off to an absolutely putrid start. Their 9-14 record has them sitting at 14th in the Western Conference. Luka Doncic has looked spectacular,...
    The difficulties Mavericks faced at the start of the season should not be underestimated Players, Not to the fans, or to the racers… but to another owner, every failure is welcomed with a big smile, and for a very simple reason. Before the start of the season, the Mavericks were seen as one of the teams to watch. Luca Doncic Already a superstar, but had to go one step further and find himself in the fight for the MVP title, Christophe had shown good things before he was injured in the Porchis bubble, and the workers were solid overall. But in third place this season, the results were not good. Unimaginable failure after the promises shown in the bubble. But there is a team in the league that excites every loss to Maverick, some of whom are now. In fact, if Dallas continues to sink into the rankings it has everything to gain a franchise, and the reason is very simple. It’s about trade and draft. Read this too Damien Lee’s controversial...
    After pulling on his warmups, lacing up his sneakers and walking out of the tunnel, Kelly Oubre Jr. will take a seat on the sideline, lock his gaze on the lines of the court and channel his inner “chi.” This is how Oubre, in the throes of an inconsistent season, tunes out the noise and stays present. As the chatter around him raises after each disappointing shooting performance, it’s this steadiness that teammates, including Stephen Curry, admire. “The one thing he can control is his energy and effort, and that’s always present when he’s out there on the floor,” Curry said after Oubre scored a career-high 40 points to help lead the injury-depleted Warriors to a 147-116 road win over the Mavericks on Thursday. “I’ve got a lot of respect for a guy like that.” Twenty-two games into the season, Oubre has struggled to find consistency, vacillating from supposed-breakout performances to dramatic slumps. Needing to string together wins to establish themselves as a playoff team, the Warriors hope Oubre’s career night is a sign of things...
    The Golden State Warriors were forced to go with an ultra-small ball lineup Thursday night, but you wouldn’t know it based on the stats in the paint. The Golden State Warriors easily handled the Dallas Mavericks 147-116 on Thursday night, led by a career-high 40 points from Kelly Oubre, 28 points from Stephen Curry and a double-double (11 points and 15 assists) from Draymond Green. With injuries thinning the roster, the Warriors dressed just nine players for Thursday night’s game. With James Wiseman (left wrist), Kevon Looney (left ankle) and Eric Paschall (knee) out, the 6-foot-7 inch Andrew Wiggins was the tallest player among the available nine for coach Steve Kerr. The two teams combined for 93 3-point attempts, so there was plenty of fast-paced perimeter action on Thursday night. But the Warriors, against all logic, dominated the paint.The Warriors controlled Mavericks all-around with their “dearth” lineupGolden State fit their usual mode by making more than half of their 3-pointers (22-for-43) against the Mavericks, led by Oubre (7-for-10) and Curry (4-for-10). But they also out-rebounded Dallas 45-42, and outscored them...
    Steph Curry held his hands up to his face in the shape of binoculars to celebrate Draymond Green’s vision. Green, his longtime teammate, had just whipped a bullet pass through three Mavericks defenders to lead Curry into an easy layup. In their years together, Curry has come to expect such high-level anticipation and execution from Green. But that doesn’t make gems like this from Green, who finished with 11 points and 15 assists in Golden State’s 147-116 win over the Mavericks in Dallas on Thursday, any less spectacular. The play occurred late in the second quarter, before the Warriors (12-10) broke open the game with a 15-2 run in the third quarter that took control of a game that featured 17 lead changes and oodles of points. Curry, freed up by Green facilitating the offense, scampered off the ball to score 28 points on 9-for-17 shooting (4-for-10 from 3-point range). For the Mavericks (9-15), Luka Doncic had 27 points, six rebounds and six assists, and Kristaps Porzingis finished with 25 points. Below, four takeaways from the...
