Dallas Dominates in Denver

The Mavericks were able to win convincingly in Denver against a rowdy Nuggets fan base. The fans came out in their Peyton Manning gear as the quarterback seems set to sign with the team. In the end, they were unable to cheer loud enough for the Nuggets, however, who fell 112-95 to the visiting Mavericks. The Mavericks are now 27-20 on the year and are 9-13 in games played away from Dallas this season. This is an away record they have recently been improving upon in recent months.

The Mavericks are really trying to make a push for the playoffs and beat a very good Nuggets team on their floor to show just how serious they are. They also did so convincingly, as they scored 30 plus points in 2 quarters and 29 in another before putting things on cruise control in the fourth quarter. The Nuggets were able to stay close in the first half as just 7 points separated the two teams going into halftime. After the break, the Mavericks tacked on another 7 points difference, though, and cruised to the finish line.

Dallas Get Offensive Explosion from Dirk

The Mavericks won 102-96 on Saturday in Dallas against the Utah Jazz. The Mavericks got a huge lift from Dirk Nowitzki who exploded offensively. The team improved to 22-16 on the season and improved their home record to 14-7 on the season. After a poor start, the team has been playing as well as anyone as of late and will look to try and repeat as champs as they move into the second half of the season.

The Mavericks were great from the field and outscored the Jazz in each quarter but the fourth. They went into the half up by 7 and then exploded in the 3rd by outscoring the Jazz 31-19. Dirk led the team with a monster game, as he scored 40 points in the contest. Jason Kidd led the team in assist with 8 while Mahinmi led the Mavs in rebounds with 8.

Sunday. The team must continue this amazing run they are on, as they will have a target on them more and more with every win they get.

Mavericks Losing Streak Continues

The Mavericks lost once again on Friday against the Hornets 97-92. The Mavericks have now lost 3 straight since the all-star break. The Mavericks are now 21-16 on the season and fall to 8-9 on the season in games played on the road. They have fallen further out of the race for the division between themselves, the Spurs, and the Rockets. The team must get back on track and remember that they are no longer on vacation. Perhaps getting back to Dallas will help the team.

The Mavericks did get some production primarily from Beaubois who scored 25 on the day. Nowitzki also added 9 rebounds to lead the team while Jason Kidd led the team with 6 assists. The team ultimately lost the game in the first quarter after being outscored 25-19. During the rest of the game, they actually outscored the Hornets by one point. The slow start really cost the team as their losing streak continues.

Mavs Lose Second Straight Since Break

The Mavericks lost their second straight game since the all-star break this past weekend. The team ended up losing 96-85 on Wednesday against the Memphis Grizzlies. The Mavericks failed to get any good production from the field and scored under 20 points in 3 of the games four quarters. The Mavericks must get back on track as they are taking a turn for the worst recently. Their record now stands at 21-15 on the year while their road record evens up to 8-8 this season.

Mavericks Rough Start After Break

The Mavericks lost 93-92 on Tuesday against the Nets in Dallas. Dallas has done well at home this season and has been moving them into position to get their way into the playoffs. The team has continued to make progress, but has gotten off on the wrong foot since the all-star break just ended. The team is now 21-14 overall on the year while they carry a 13-7 home record.

The team did well, but simply fell short. Dallas was led by Dirk Nowitzki, who scored 24 points in the contest. Jason Kidd led the team in assists with 8 on the day. The team tried desperately to get back into the game after falling behind 56-45 in the first half of the game. In the second half, they were able to outscore the Nets 47-37. This was good, but proved not to be enough against the sub-par Net’s team.
