Jameer with the assist to Parsons, who now has 22 pts on 7-of-11 shooting. Mavs up 78-56.
Mavs are ahead 72-56 with 4:40 left in the 3rd.
Dirk leads with 8 pts, Ellis and Aminu has 5 each. Mavs are shooting 45% on FGs, and are 3-of-8 on 3's. They also have 9 turnovers.
Jameer Nelson received some loud cheers when he was announced as a Mavericks starter.
Mavs:is Nelson the perfect pg for the talented scorers at 2, 3, 4 as he appears to be? If so, can bench wings support strong starting 5?
In the last few years that Mavs have had off-season cap space, their worst finish was 41-41 (Dirk missed 1/3 of season). You're up Kobe...
Imagine how differently Nash's career might have gone had he been traded to the D'Antoni-coached Nuggets instead of the Mavs in 1998.
