I can't completely hate them because we were able to get this guy from them for nothing.

I give the Mavs a fighting chance. Probably a loss but still a fighting chance.
1) Warriors will be on second night of a back to back.
2) Warriors are only 5-4 in March. Sure, they have won their last three games but they are not the same team without Durant.

Dallas will win this one, maybe even by a blowout. Mavs are so unpredictable. They can absolutely stink it up against bad teams and then blowout some of the best teams in the league.

Warriors are a different team in March, sure... But so are the Mavs. We have looked like garbage since Barea returned

I think Ferrell is not playing too well lately. He's rough shooting, poor decision-making and ill-advised shots quite often lately. His lacking in size seems to bother him a lot after being blocked repeatedly in paint. Barea's coming back to rotation seems to bother him as well.

Similarly, Seth Curry is still in shooting slump for no reason. Lack of aggressiveness is what I can recognized. He's so unmotivated on both ends of the floor lately. He looks like sleepwalking in games. And we look like a d-league team instead of legitimate nba team when both of them play like this. We nearly allow Brooklyn to be back before JJ getting on fire. Hopefully, we can figure it out and try something new in this game.

Im honest: I hope that Dirk scores over 20 on great efficiency and we lose for a btter pick ;-).

seriously, i dont see us winning, despite b2b game for the warriors. they ball movement is just too good and we dont have the perimeter defense to stop them.

2.5 games behind Denver for the 8th seed.

Remember when we were all like "Man, Dirk really has finally regressed big time" earlier this year? Might have to reverse on that.

This one is going to get ugly.

One the plus side I got tickets to the UTA Mavericks tomorrow.

Why is Dirk still in the game? I guess the bigger question is why am I still watching the game?

Not sure why Rick doesn't want to give Uthoff a decent look.
I know he wants to win but we also have to give these young guys some quality experience.
We have about a 1% chance of making the POs now so why not just throw those young guys out there and try to win with youth?

And Brussino has a career night a few games ago and then barely gets PT after that. I just don't get Rick sometimes even though I think he is one of the best coaches ever.

Do you guys think Noel doesn't play as much as he should in order to avoid paying him the max and then unleashing him next season? Or is it because of the small ball orientation with Dirk at C? But these two should be absolutely fine together.

After all, you guys are +8.6 (!) in the 208 minutes with Noel on the floor. Better on both defense and offense than with him on the bench. Not to mention his efficiency and boxscore numbers look stellar as well.

Hopefully you guys find a nice Rookie in the draft (Ntilikina would be so great if he falls into your range) and have a good next year. Dirk's presumably last year deserves to be exciting and with players like Curry, Barnes, Noel and a bunch of undrafted guys fighting to stay in the league I'm rooting for you.
