0 for 6 in OT games this season and the Mavs are currently in 12th place in the standings. I guess it's safe to say I'm more optimistic about the offseason than making a splash at a playoff spot.

I don't think Dirk's anywhere close to 100% yet. I can see the Mavs getting a low playoff spot this year.

Dirk being a nice 3rd/4th option for the Mavs as he progress through the season. Carter really embracing that 6th man role. Hope the Mavs keeps rolling.

Well, those are games they had to win (except the Memphis one maybe - still the Grizzlies were coming of a OT-game the night before). It's good to win those games though, as the team had even fucked those up earlier this season.

Dirk needs time, he is not done yet. (shooting pretty good from down town by the way so far)

The Mavs won every time Carter scored 18+ points, his defense has improved this year too so I don't see a reason why Marion should start ahead of him..

Lol I was not really expecting or even suggesting that Carter to start over Marion. If anything they should play together because Marion has been the 2nd important player for the Mavs right now.

So Cuban made a "Bank of Cuban" which everybody on the roster except for Dirk can/will be traded. Just don't trade Mayo, Carter and Marion.

I don't know. If he's serious about free agency, he might dump Marion for an expiring deal. At this point in the season, I really think the Mavs would benefit greatly from a high pick. Hate to say it, but it's taking too long to right the ship. It's unlikely the Mavs make the playoffs.

Right now, they are four games behind Houston. POR, MIN and HOU are all riding losing streaks. The Mavs streak might end vs OKC, but they are getting better. There is still a decent chance to sneak into that eight spot.

Solid win over the Rockets today, they had an answer for every run Houston made and eked out the victory. Harden admittedly helped out as his poor shooting night included a lot of blown layups that were good looks at the basket, but even so, give the Mavs credit for getting the job done.

As long as they aren't mathematically eliminated they obviously have a shot and there are enough games left in the regular season to make up ground on the Lakers and Jazz, but right now I don't see it happening.

So haven't been here in a while...

I think the Mavs still have a chance. Dirk's fully healthy, the Lakers looked awful with their "big lol four", the jazz have been choking as of late, and Portland might be trying to keep their pick, which is top 12 protected.

The problem is, it may be too little, too late. The Lakers are still two and a half games ahead of the Mavericks and with the regular season winding down, they'd basically need to go on a three or four game losing streak while the Mavs win their next three or four to really give Dallas a shot at battling for the eighth spot. Given their upcoming schedules, that's a tall order; the Lakers might drop a couple, but the Mavs will have a tough time running off another three or four in a row.

If the Mavericks steal the 8th spot and steal Dwight eventually from the LoLakers. That'd be epic. And Cuban's 'amnesty Kobe' mockery would add as a gravy to the story. #LoLatLakers

Lakers 36 - 34
Utah 34 - 35
Dallas 33 - 36

I really can't see the Mavs overtaking the Lakers. Mavs winning tomorrow against Utah will tie them.

8) Lakers: 36-35
9) Utah: 35-36
10) Dallas: 35-36

Looks a lot better now though Portland still isn't that far behind.

I doubt that the Mavericks will make it. Somehow I think the Lakers will pull it off in the end. But it's good to see Dirk being his old self in recent games. I like that running hook he has added in the last games. With his size still pretty unguardable despite his lack of athleticism.

It doesn't matter if the user is athletic or not the hook shot is unguardable if done right unless you're up against a pissed off Wilt Chamberlain, then get ready to have that shite blocked.

Oh the last sentence wasn't about the hook but in general about Nowitzki. He has really lost every bit of athleticism he once had at this stage of his career, but he is unguardable - be it the hook or the one legged fade.

MWP is out. Kobe has bone spurs in his foot, Gasol just returned from a two-month absence and still is being D'Antonified, and Nash is hurt too. Who do you expect to help Dwight lead them to the playoffs if they miss time/suck? Earl Clark? Jodie Meeks? Antawn Jamison?

Right now my money's on the Mavs. They've got momentum on their side. The Lakers literally have absolutely everything going against them.

I thought his intention was to pass(to Kaman for easy dunk) when he actually jumped up in the air. But the defender didn't come at him as opposed to Dirk's expectation but instead he boxed Kaman out whom Dirk wanted to pass to. Perhaps too much thinking got to his head? And he wasn't fully recovered to his 100% game shape at that time.

The Wolfman strikes. I'd have preferred a different result, but you've got to hand it to Dirk for a performance like that. One more win and the beards are history.

Say goodbye to the beards. Dirk got his 25k.
It's a shame for Utah and Dallas to (in case of Utah most likely) miss the playoffs while cannon fodder like the Bucks will have a 99.5% chance of getting swept in the first round...
I hope Dallas will have a better 2013/14 campaign.

The draft will be a big one for sure. They need to draft someone that could make an impact from day one but with RC its going to be tough. MIKE JAMES will play 45 minutes next season.

Dirk and Cuban are on a sales pitch as Dirk will accept a "significant pay cut" next summer to lure some big free agents (Dight/Paul) to Dallas.

I really hope the Mavs pick up CP3. Howard is looking more and more like he's going to the Rockets, and I don't mind that. CP3 sounds upset at the organization, and might just decide to leave for Dallas. I'd much rather have CP3 than Dwight anyway

The chances of getting Paul without getting Howard are slim in my opinion. Even if Howard heads to Houston without Paul, I don't know if he's that upset about the Clippers that he'd move on to Dallas because the Clippers still have a good core while Dallas has many expiring contracts including 3 starters.

Agreed. My guess is that the current friction will be smoothed over and Paul will opt for the team that's in better shape to be competitive straight away, which for once would be the Clippers. If I'm the Mavericks or another team that will have money to spend this offseason, I'm certainly making a few overtures though on the off-chance he can be lured away.

All this Paul/Howard talk is making me sad/nervous as a Mavs fan. Cuban definitely has the money to sign either one of them but what about the rest of the roster?

Well I guess Mayo might resign because he has been pretty valuable during the first half of the season. Let's just hope he is not asking for too much money. Brandan Wright could be too expensive.

Vince Carter and Shawn Marion are still good enough to help the team in my opinion. Add Jae Crowder to it and you have at least a solid supporting cast. It's tough that the Mavs probably can't use their first rounder because of the guaranteed contract and might draft an european player to place him in Europe and not sign him already.

It will be a tough offseason but I am pretty sure the Mavs will do everything to get to the postseason next year and maybe sign a good player then with Dirk taking less money.

Who needs a complete roster when you have Dirk paired up with best player at their respective position. I'd rather pay for the superstar than trying to build the Nuggets.

I like Mayo don't get me wrong but he is too inconsistent. The moment Dirk got his groove back during almost the second half of the season was the the time Mayo starts sucking for whatever reason, that's also the time Carlisle started putting Fisher/James as the starting guard which might have hurt Mayo's productivity.

They say that Mayo played better paired with Collison which confuses me why RC didn't let them run the show even with Dirk back.

I'll go with the Plan A (Paul/Howard) before signing Mayo. I want Brand back though, he is the perfect backup to Dirk right now.

If I understand you correctly you want to get Paul and Howard. With Dallas' "limited" cap space you can only sign one of them. Saying that I'm pretty sure Dallas will get non of them, because Howard is either paring with Paul in Atlanta or going to Houston, if he leaves LA.

LOL, I laughed so hard on the first vid. Dirk felt so embarrassed he trip himself and still got a penalty.

Nice penalty kick though. This was German celebrity match or something?

If you’re about realism in NBA games, but you lack the experience in this type of game mode, I’d suggest starting with a player like Kwame; it really does feel like an authentic experience straight off the bat.

NovU, it was a charity match organized by Dirk and Manuel Neuer (German soccer goalkeeper).
