Mavericks owner Mark Cuban said the NBA is seriously considering altering the schedule to go later into the summer as a means of reducing or potentially eliminating back-to-back games."I've been bringing it up for years," Cuban said before the Mavs' 99-92 win over the Toronto Raptors on Tuesday, one of three games in four nights for his team. "[Commissioner Adam Silver is] more open to it, and he's going to be considering it. Everybody's for it now." ESPN.com

But Carlisle and Rondo had plenty to say to each other during a tense timeout with 8:10 remaining in the third quarter. The stubborn coach and headstrong point guard exchanged a lot of expletives as they shouted at each other in a dispute stemming from Rondo's desire to have more play-calling responsibilities. "Well, it's an emotional game and we had a difference of opinion," Carlisle said. "There was an exchange, and then, in my mind, it was over." ESPN.com

The tension between Rondo and Carlisle about play-calling had been brewing for a little while, team sources told ESPNDallas.com. It reached a boiling point when Rondo appeared to blow off a play call from the bench, prompting Carlisle to storm onto the court while calling a timeout and shouting at Rondo, who responded in kind.

Mavericks center Tyson Chandler left the American Airlines Center with a pronounced limp Tuesday night. Chandler injured his hip when he took a charge from Toronto Raptors power forward Amir Johnson with 1:16 remaining in the Mavs' 99-92 win. Chandler was in obvious pain and exited the game for good with 51 seconds remaining. "I'm a little banged up," Chandler said. "I got hit in my hip flexor. I've got that and other lingering things."
