Fact that is fun: Bucks are the third best second quarter team in the NBA this season. (Only the Warriors and Mavericks are better.)
Good timing for Mavs visit to New Orleans to play Pelicans tomorrow, Rock-N-Roll Marathon here tomorrow so mixing in a 10K race in morning
Monty Williams says there is a pretty good chance Ryan Anderson will play Sunday against the Mavericks.
Only 2 teams beat Mavs and Spurs on consecutive days this season: CHI and DET (!). Before this year, last time that happened was 1997.
Westbrook, Duncan in. Two spots left for Dirk, Boogie, Conley, Monte. Can't see no Mavs--so I'll go Dirk, Boogie. So tough to pick (2/2)
Just watched the Bulls beat the Mavs. What an outstanding road win for the Bulls, they seem to be getting their mojo back!
Other NBA things: CHI responds in a huge way beating Mavs and Spurs b2b. Cavs have it all figured out. Knicks winning games?
Mavs get to within 2 late but unable to get a defensive rebound on final possession, Bulls hit ensuing FTs and win 102-98. Mavs now 30-14
A night after waxing Spurs, Bulls go into Dallas and take down the Mavericks. They're suddenly playing well again.
Final: Bulls 102, Mavs 98. Postgame presser with Rick Carlisle could get prickly.
I'd say back-to-back wins against the full-strength Spurs and Mavs is pretty good. Just me though.
Derrick Rose gets an offensive rebound to seal Mavs' fate. Rajon Rondo, the best rebounding PG in the league, had a good view from bench.
Anthony Davis had 21 points, 12 rebounds, Eric Gordon had 20 against Minnesota. Pelicans back in action on Sunday against Mavericks.
Bulls with a season high 24 turnovers- Mavs 32 points -however Bulls lead that's the bottom line up 6
Hawks' last 10 games v. West: beat OKC, Griz, Clips, Blazers, Jazz, Clips, Mavs, Rockets, Nugs, Pels. Last loss v...Lakers? 15 straight Ws
End 3Q: Bulls 80, Mavs 75. Bulls' starting backcourt has combined for 35. Mavs' starting forwards have combined for 33.
Devin Harris has a 4-point play after Kirk Hinrich hacks him on a 3. Not the dumbest foul by Hinrich vs. Mavs this year.
Pau Gasol has more rebounds (15) than the Mavs' starting frontcourt.
I like the Mavs chances if the Bulls don't continue to drain 61.5% of their 3's
Bulls holding off Mavs despite 17 turnovers (24points) 66-62 Bulls 604 3rd
