Gonna be pissed if Mavs really come together and earn the 2 or 3 seed and wind up facing a fully healthy OKC as the 6 or 7 in first round.
Others: Gal Mekel (cut by Mavs for JJ Barea), Toney Douglas, Jamaal Tinsley
TNT crew going ape $h!+ over Mavs right now. Kenny guaranteeing they'll be playing at the end of May
Jazz allowed 49 uncontested shots tonight. Mavericks just keep probing until you make a mistake. Smart basketball players
In EMPTYING THE NOGGIN I broke down all 9 layups or dunks for the Mavericks in the 1st quarter. Interesting to re-watch those plays
Completely in-sync performance from the Mavs tonight, 55% shooting and only 9 turnovers. Parsons & Dirk each 21. Mavs 120-102 over Utah
I'm now rooting for a Clippers-Mavs playoff series just for the Ballmer-Cuban trash talk.
That's a wrap in Dallas. No birthday victory for Quin Snyder. Jazz fall to the Mavericks 120-102, dropping to 0-2 on the season.
2 minutes left, Mavs are up 18 over Utah and about to pick up their first win. DAL with 7 players in double figures, JJ Barea playing w/ DAL
If you evaluate Chandler Parsons purely on his contract, Mavs overpaid. Look at him and Dirk as a duo and they got great value.
This is the Chandler Parsons the Mavs paid for: 17 points, 7 rebounds, 2 assists with 4:00 to go.
The Mavericks passed the 100-point mark with 8:25 remaining in the game. Utah still hasn't hit 80.
End of 3: Mavs 93, Jazz 73.
