Game Night: Mavericks Host Red Hot Jazz In Pivotal Game Before Break

    Dallas, TX – Let’s face it. There aren’t many teams in the NBA who desperately need a two week break more than the Dallas Mavericks (29-25). But before Dirk Nowitzki can go to the beach and Wesley Matthews can finally take some time off, they look to go into the break on a…

Game Night: Mavericks Late Rally Falls Short In Loss To Heat

    Associated Press   DALLAS — After matching the worst shooting half of his career in the first 24 minutes against Dallas, Dwyane Wade missed his first shot of the third quarter.   When Amare Stoudemire grabbed the rebound and got the ball right back to Wade, the Miami star shot it again. And…

Powell or McGee: The Battle For Playing Time

Powell or McGee: The Battle For Playing Time

  Dwight Powell or JaVale McGee?   In December of 2014 the Dallas Mavericks made a trade with the Boston Celtics to acquire Rajon Rondo in what was supposed to be a blockbuster move. I’m sure I don’t need to explain how that panned out.   The trade wasn’t a total bust; the Mavericks also…

On The Horizon: Time For Mavericks To Make A Statement

    Let’s face facts. The Dallas Mavericks (28-22) have beaten the teams they are supposed to beat, and failed to muster up many “meaningful victories” against the big NBA contenders. They have had opportunities, but failed to make any noise. That brings us to this week. The Mavericks have four big games this week,…

Game Night: Mavericks Take On Struggling Hawks

    Atlanta, GA – When you know the Dallas Mavericks are playing there is a strong chance one of two things is happening: Dirk Nowitzki is sitting out or they are on the second night of a back-to-back. Seeing how Dirk and his new “Ellen DeGeneres” haircut sat out Sunday night, we should see…

Game Night: Mavericks Head To Oracle To Take On Warriors

    Oakland, CA – Welp, last night didn’t go as planned. With the team having to take on the Golden State Warriors (41-4) on the tail end of a back to back, they needed to make quick and easy work of the Kobe-less Los Angeles Lakers last night. That didn’t happen. The Dallas Mavericks…

Has Chandler Parsons Finally Emerged?

Has Chandler Parsons Finally Emerged?

    When the Dallas Mavericks inked their contract with restricted free agent Chandler Parsons back in the summer of 2014, not many knew what kind of ceiling he had.  He was drafted in the second round and was no more than a third or arguably fourth fiddle on a contending Houston Rockets team.  He…
