1.SHOW OF HANDS: OK, let’s have an honest show of hands from those who saw this win by the Mavs coming. With the Mavs in Denver and fresh off Sunday’s disappointing loss at home to Portland, I’m sure there probably weren’t many who thought they would go into Denver and knock off the mighty Nuggets. The previously unbeaten Nuggets. The Nuggets who were the Western Conference’s No. 2 seed last season and who are stacked to the rafters with so much talent that their second unit could probably suit up and beat a lot of team’s first unit on a […]

With their two best players struggling offensively, the Mavs showed the value of having a deep and talented roster as they had a franchise record-tying nine players score at least 10 points and knocked off the Denver Nuggets, 109-106, before a crowd of 16,605.

“He’s doing great — I’m talking to him constantly,” coach Rick Carlisle said. “He’s been a great influence on the team even though he has not been playing, and he’s ready.”
Barea underwent surgery on Jan. 14 to repair a ruptured right Achilles tendon. The injury occurred during a Jan. 11 game at Minnesota, and the rehabilitation process has been long and tedious.

DALLAS –The Dallas Mavericks have selected veteran swingman Justin Jackson as the team’s nominee for the October NBA Cares Community Assist Award for his continuous efforts to recognize, celebrate and support children with Down syndrome in the North Texas area.
Justin and his wife, Brooke, hope to change the world’s views of people with special needs and amplify a message that everyone should be accepted.
“Basketball is definitely my job and I take it super serious, but it’s not the most important thing in my life,” Jackson said. “Loving people is what I feel God […]
