In '11 everyone tried to avoid PORT in the 1st round. As Mark Cuban says, PORT was the best thing that happened to the #Mavs that yr.#champs

Dwain Price

Carlisle not concerned about losing a draft pick bit.ly/1hPY56r

Mark Followill

4 wins by West playoff teams in next 2 days gives them 435 combined. Most ever for West playoff field since it expanded to 8 per conf in 84

Dwain Price

I don't think either the #Mavs or the #Grizzlies want to play the #Spurs in the 1st round. So Mavs-Grizzlies on Wed. will be fun to watch.

Dwain Price

Here's hoping the NBA soon adopts a 1-16 seeded playoff system so teams like the #Suns won't win 47 games and get burned. #travesty

Jeff Caplan

All 8 West playoff teams have at least 49 wins. Two East playoff teams have at least 49 wins.

Mark Followill

West seeds settled: 1. SA 4. HOU 5. POR 6. GS. OKC & LAC still jockeying for 2 & 3. DAL & MEM play for 7 & 8.

Jeff Caplan

>#Mavs and #Grizzlies both 0-4 vs. #Spurs this season

Mark Followill

Warriors will be 6 w/ win v T-Wolves, Memphis is in w/ win at Phoenix. Mavs at Grizz on Wednesday, winner gets 7th seed & 50 Ws.

Jeff Caplan

#Mavs at #Grizzlies, Wed 7 pm CT (ESPN)... >Dallas 3-0 vs. Memphis this season. >Memphis has won 13 in a row at home

Dwain Price

That celebration you just saw after the #Warriors got their 50th win, that's why the #Mavs want to go for broke and try and get 50 on Wed.

Dwain Price

#Mavs-#Grizzlies loser will get the #Spurs in the 1st round. The winner will get the #Thunder or the #Clippers.

Jeff Caplan

Warriors clinch. What we know in the West: 1 Spurs 2/3 OKC or LAC 4 Rockets 5 Blazers 6 Warriors 7/8 Dal or Mem* *Dal at Mem, Wed (ESPN)

Dwain Price

With GSW's win over Minnesota tonight, the #Mavs and #Grizzlies will battle Wednesday in Memphis with the winner getting the 7th seed.

Earl K. Sneed

Warriors win at home over Minnesota, so Wednesday's matchup between the @dallasmavs & Grizzlies is for the 7th seed. Loser gets the Spurs.

Dwain Price

Mavs not sure if they rather play the Spurs or Thunder bit.ly/1kVDEgr

Mark Followill

Steph Curry may have just daggered Minnesota & any chance of the Mavs (or Grizz) moving up to 6

Dwain Price

Mavs not satisfied -- want more bit.ly/1m5gwZY

Dwain Price

The #Suns are going to do what the #Warriors did in 2008. Have 48 wins and don't qualify for the playoffs. #goEastyoungmen #silver

Jeff Caplan

#Suns won 25 games last season. Can get No. 48 at Sac in Wed finale. Four East teams have 48 or more wins.

Dwain Price

Phoenix is out of the playoff picture. If the GSW beat Minn. tonight, Wednesday's #Mavs-#Grizzlies winner in Memphis gets the 7th seed.

Jeff Caplan

Great #Suns run comes to an end. #Grizzlies clinch playoff berth. Seeds 7-8 will be decided Wed - #Mavs @ Griz (assuming GS holds on to 6).

Earl K. Sneed

Grizzlies win in Phoenix, Suns eliminated and Wednesday can not come fast enough. @dallasmavs and Memphis will have a lot on the line...

Dwain Price

BREAKING NEWS: Kevin Love has 22 pts after the 1st quarter against the GSW. He will get 50 tonight. Maybe 60.

Dwain Price

I gotta re-do my NBA awards. Kevin Love is The Truth!!! #mvp

Dwain Price

This is so, so crazy. The #Mavs are going to mess around and get the 6th seed.

Mark Followill

OKC loses in New Orleans so 2-3 still in limbo between Thunder & Clippers. OKC is 2 w/ a win vs Detroit Wednesday or LAC loss Tues or Wed

Mark Followill

Rockets beat Spurs so they'll be 4 and Portland is set at 5. They played in a 4-5 series in 2009. Houston won in 6

Jeff Caplan

Can't help but feel awful for Andrew Bogut. One freak injury after another. Just nuts. And really hurts the Warriors.

Mark Cuban

MFFL Great guys. http://t.co/06z0RIhpVM

Dwain Price

Season has been very challenging for Carlisle bit.ly/1m4mSZw

Mark Followill

Big night of basketball, #1 seed in West is only 1 locked in (San Antonio) but everything from 2 to 7 could be decided pending results 2nite

Jeff Caplan

League hands down automatic suspension to DeMarcus Cousins for 16th T. Will sit out Wed vs #Suns. Meaningful if Suns beat #Grizzlies tonite.

Ellis wins conference weekly award bit.ly/1m3vT5c

Mark Followill

This is 1st time that two Mavs have won Player of the Week honors in back-to-back weeks. Monta this wk follows Dirk winning last wk

Shane Larkin

What's up twitter. Haven't been on here much! Hmu on snapchat and say what's up!! Name is s.larkin0

Dwain Price

In a nutshell, Rick Carlisle said the #Mavs aren't going to Memphis on Wed. to roll over and play dead. They're going there to win. #50

Mark Followill

Monta Ellis is Western Conf Player of the Week. In 3 games, avg 25.7 ppg, 4.7 apg & 51.6% FG, w/ 37 pts in playoff spot clinching win v Suns

Dwain Price

Dirk won WC Player of the Week last week. This marks the 1st time in Mavs history they had 2 players win this award in consecutive weeks.

Dwain Price

#Mavs G Monta Ellis has been named the Western Conference Player of the Week for his performances last week, the NBA announced.

Earl K. Sneed

One week after Dirk gets the honor, Monta Ellis is named the Western Conference Player of the Week for averaging 25.7 ppg.

Jeff Caplan

Jeff Teague and Monta Ellis named East/West players of the week.

Dwain Price

Nowitzki went through full practice session Monday bit.ly/1t1ozLx

Dwain Price

Forget rest. Rick Carlisle said his team is going to go for it and try to win their 50th game Wednesday in Memphis.

Earl K. Sneed

Dirk Nowitzki (ankle) went through all of @dallasmavs practice today.

Dwain Price

Someone said its going to be a cold day in Dallas in Apr. when the Mavs and Stars both make the playoffs in the same season again. Well. . .

Dwain Price

#Mavs get the 6th seed if they win at Memphis, and if the #Warriors lose at home to Minnesota and at Denver.

Dwain Price

This is the 1st season since the birth of the NBA that the #Celtics, #Knicks and #Lakers didn't make the playoffs in the same season. Wow!!!

If #Suns beat #Grizzlies Monday, #Mavs will be saved from 8th & series w the #Spurs. Otherwise 7-8 decided Wed Dal @ Mem. GS can still slip.

Mark Followill

After tonight's games Mavs can still move up to 6 cause Golden State lost in Portland & can still fall to 8 since Memphis beat the Lakers

Jeff Caplan

#Grizzlies beat LAL, can end #Suns playoff hopes Monday at Phx. If Suns win they stay alive for Game No. 82 on Wed @ Sac - Dal @ Mem.

Jeff Caplan

Open shot for sure for Golden State and well executed, and hard to quibble already in OT, but sometimes a 2 can work.

Jeff Caplan

I know everybody loves the long ball, but there really is no rule in basketball that EVERY shot must be a 3-pointer.

Dwain Price

If the GSW lose Monday at home vs. Minn. and at Denver on Wednesday, the #Mavs will get the 6th seed if they win at Memphis on Wednesday.

Dwain Price

But if the #Suns beat the #Grizzlies on Monday, the #Mavs can't finish lower than the 7th seed.

Dwain Price

If the #Grizzlies win in Phoenix on Monday, that game Wednesday against the #Mavs in Memphis will be for the 7th seed.

Dwain Price

Not counting the All-Star break, the Mavs are 2-0 this season when they have 3 days off between games. They have 3 days off B4 playing MEMP.

Dwain Price

The #Mavs won 26 home games this season. The last time they won that many home games occurred when they won 29 in their championship season.

Dwain Price

The #Mavs were 5-5 at home in games decided by 3 points or less. And they were 6-5 on the road in games decided by 3 points or less.

Dwain Price

The #Mavs completed the home portion of their schedule with a 26-15 record. Last year they were 24-17 at home.

Dirk Nowitzki

Well played by bubba. Great effort by Jordan. Sky is the limit....

Dwain Price

If you don't have home court advantage in a best-of-7 series, just win your 3 home games. Then you have 4 shots to win 1 game on the road.

Dwain Price

The #Mavs will start the playoffs on the road. They're tied with the #Clippers for the 4th-best road record in the NBA at 23-17.

Dwain Price

The #Mavs have won their last 6 road games. That includes handling @ OKC its worst beating this yr, 109-86, on Mar. 16.

Dwain Price

Monta Ellis and the GSW won 48 games and didn't qualify for the playoffs in 2008. All West playoff teams won at least 50 games that year.

Dwain Price

Both the #Suns and #Grizzlies can win 49 games. But only one of them will go to the playoffs. That's a 3-seed out East. #silver

Jeff Caplan

Appears that @jonas_blixt's caddy is having something of a #SunshineDaydream

Dwain Price

Playoff tickets for the #Mavs went on sale Saturday morning. A few hours later they clinched a playoff spot. Talk about perfect timing.

Dwain Price

I'd go for the rest. Fresher legs can help you win a playoff game or two. 50 wins don't help you win a playoff game. #mavs

Dwain Price

And if the #Mavs have the 7th seed locked up before playing Memphis, do they go for the 50 wins? Or do they rest the aging veterans?

Dwain Price

Tough call for Rick Carlisle. Do you rest aging veterans Dirk, Marion and Carter vs. Memphis? Or do you go for the 50 wins and the 7th seed?

Dwain Price

Monta (23) and Dirk (21) combined to outscore Phoenix in the 2nd half Saturday, 44-41.

Dwain Price

The #Rockets sent this game of Championship "Trivia" Pursuit to entice you to vote for their guys in the awards game. http://t.co/pKrcMwGp5i

Dwain Price

Last year both of the AAC's tenants -- the #Mavs and #Stars -- missed the playoffs. Now they're both back in the playoffs. #moneymoneymoney

Mark Followill

Big 24 hours for Indiana, Heat lose last night & great win for them over OKC today. After all of their struggles still may get #1 seed

Dwain Price

If the @Warriors lose at PORT, at DEN and at home vs. MINN, and the #Mavs win at MEPH, then DAL gets the 6th seed out West.

Dwain Price

That #Suns-#Mavs game last night felt like a playoff game. Lots of intensity. Lots of pressure. Lots of angst. Lots of cursing.

Dwain Price

What is Russell Westbrook doing? Didn't he have 3 surgeries this season?

Dwain Price

David Jones. Get out of the way. lol

Dwain Price

If the #Mavs don't play their 1st playoff game until next Sunday, then Wednesday's game against Memphis will be their only game in 7 days.

Dwain Price

What was Ibaka thinking? I used the referee. When players got in my face like that, they got ejected. Don't show up the ref.

Dwain Price

Mark Cuban's Mount Rushmore of all-time DFW athletes: Dirk Nowitzki, Mike Modano, Troy Aikman and Emmitt Smith.

Dwain Price

How bad did the #Mavs want that victory over the #Suns? I've never seen so much bickering between Mavs players on the court as I saw on Sat.

Dwain Price

If you're the #Mavs would you rest your regulars Wed. and get ready for the more important playoffs, or would you try to get to 50 wins?

Dwain Price

I stand corrected. If the #Grizzlies lose to the #Lakers OR the #Suns, the #Mavs clinch the 7th seed, because the Mavs have the tiebreakers.

Dwain Price

If the #Grizzlies lose to the #Lakers today and to the #Suns on Mon, the #Mavs will clinch the 7th seed out West.

Dwain Price

OKC the #Mavs really want to play you, because they don't think they can beat the #Spurs in a 7-game series.
