Dwain Price

Johnson, Jefferson, Smith, Crowder and Mekel starts for the #Mavs.

Earl K. Sneed

For those in the Dallas market, the game will not be televised locally but @NBATV has picked up the Pacers' broadcast. #DALatIND

Dwain Price

"We struggled with the physical aspect under the boards at times.'' -- #Mavs coach Rick Carlisle said of Fri.' 108-102 win over the #Cavs

Earl K. Sneed

Per RC, Gal Mekel & Doron Lamb are the only 2 point guards available for the Mavs tonight. Jae Crowder is the 3rd option, not Ricky Ledo.

Dwain Price

Dirk, Tyson, Parsons, Monta, Harris and Nelson will not play tonight for the #Mavs against the #Pacers.

Jeff Caplan

Coach P. RT @khairopoulos: RT @JimVertuno Baylor, Texas, Texas A&M .... um, who IS running the state?

Earl K. Sneed

No Dirk, Monta, Tyson Chandler, Chandler Parsons, Jameer Nelson or Devin Harris tonight for the @Dallas Mavericks. All resting vs. Pacers.

Jeff Caplan

After dissing the Aggies (in good fun, of course) my sad-sack (but improving) #Horns best not cough one up to Iowa State.

Dwain Price

I just left Thom Bailey's funeral. It was a very nice celebration of his life.

Jeff Caplan

Sick and tired of how Alabama can schedule a Texas A&M-Commerce at this stage of the season. Despicable.

Mark Followill

Halftime of our FSN broadcast and Texas Tech leads Kansas 17-7. Davis Webb 205 pass yds & 2 TD but also an INT to set up KU's only score

Earl K. Sneed

It never gets old, @Sekou Smith. Never. http://t.co/INehAT2vz9

Mark Followill

Few minutes til hitting the air with Brian Baldinger and @LesleyMcCaslin for Kansas at Texas Tech on FSN. Both 2-4 & 0-3 in Big 12

Earl K. Sneed

And that completes my college football viewing experience this season.

Earl K. Sneed

The pistol formation inside the 5 is the dumbest thing I've ever seen.

Earl K. Sneed

Is it so hard to line up in an I formation at the goal line?!

Mark Cuban

Oh Yes, He’s The Great Connector: Jason Hirschhorn’s Expertly Curated World thedailybeast.com/articles/2014/…

Earl K. Sneed

Finally! A defensive stop!

Earl K. Sneed

That's a bad timeout.

Earl K. Sneed

And of course the PAT is blocked. Sigh...

Earl K. Sneed

Worst I've seen this OU defense look all season. Even the TCU game wasn't this bad.

Earl K. Sneed

Great response, Sooners!

Earl K. Sneed

Oh, welcome to the game, OU defense. Feel free to stay a while.

Earl K. Sneed

I hope Sterling Shepard is OK. Great ball player, better kid.

Charlie Villanueva

Game Day vs Pacers. Learning to win on the road builds championships. #Dallasmavs #cvbelieveinstagram.com/p/uTUhrzrkfU/

Earl K. Sneed

Bad Trevor Knight. Good Trevor Knight.

Mark Followill

An early morning wakeup to get out of Cleveland...Pulling up now to Jones AT&T Stadium for broadcast of Kansas @ Texas Tech. 2:30 CT on FSN

Greg Smith

New phone. Lost contacts. Got my number hit me.

Inside Report: @Dallas Mavericks look for their 3rd straight exhibition win, completing back-to-back in Indy mavs.com/preseason-game… #DALatIND

Earl K. Sneed

Dirk: "Obviously, I'm not going to play [Saturday]. I think that's no secret, and I'm not going to play the back-to-back next week."

Earl K. Sneed

Don't expect to see Dirk tonight vs. the Pacers. Dirk: "I almost played 30 minutes for the first time since probably May in Game 7."

Earl K. Sneed

That's like making a TD that's called back because of a holding call a top play. Haha

Dwain Price

Why would they put us on an extremely cold plane that doesn't have any gas? Fill er up, heat er up, load er up. #AmericanAirlines

Dwain Price

Thanks to the honest woman who found my wallet at the Cleveland rental car place and returned it intact. God bless you. #praisetheLord

Dirk won't play Saturday night in Indianapolis. I'll be totally shocked if Monta, Parsons, Nelson and Tyson play, either.

Dwain Price

Next time you are in Cleveland, go to Take 5 and try the jerk turkey rib. Off the chain. #yummy. And say hello to Brian.

When I'm in a cold-weather city like Cleveland, this is what keeps me warm in my hotel room. #spaceheaters http://t.co/wtqadNmJyR

Mutual compliments between Rick Carlisle & LeBron James in separate interviews symbolizes the level of respect the two have for each other.

"We've been playing against our own zones in practice. But it's a little different against a team that kind of plays it all the time." - LBJ

Dwain Price

"We already said before, defensively we're a little behind. But this is a great test against an offense like that." -- LeBron on the #Mavs

Earl K. Sneed

Banged his knee but he's OK. RT @richyonthebeat: @Earl K. Sneed Any updates on Monta Ellis bro ?

Dwain Price

LeBron James: "If it's not the top 3 or 4 best offenses in the league, then you don't get any better than Rick Carlisle's offense."

Greg Smith

✈️✈️✈️ Indiana tonight

Earl K. Sneed

The @Dallas Mavericks played about 95% zone tonight just experimental. The outcome was a win.

Mark Followill

Mavs hand Cavaliers their 1st preseason loss with a 108-102 final. Chandler Parsons & Jameer Nelson each had 19 for Dallas who is now 2-2

Earl K. Sneed

INSTANT ANALYSIS: @Dallas Mavericks' starters spark win in Cleveland to move to 2-2 in preseason play mavs.com/preseason-game… #DALatCLE

Earl K. Sneed

FINAL: @Dallas Mavericks 108, Cavaliers 102; 19 pts apiece for Nelson and Parsons; 16 pts & 9 rebs for Dirk. 13 pts & eight assists for Ellis.

Dwain Price

It's a final: #Mavs 108, #Cavs 102. Parsons and Nelson 19 pt. each, Dirk 16 pt, 9 reb, Monta 13 pt, 8 assists, Harris 13 pt. Wright 11 pt.

Dwain Price

He was on the bubble. But I think Gal Mekel is going to make the #Mavs' 15-man roster. Showing so much poise tonight.

Earl K. Sneed

Gal Mekel with another clutch three late in a preseason game. #DALatCLE

Earl K. Sneed

Parsons up high to Wright for the finger roll alley-oop. @Dallas Mavericks up 99-94. 2:20 left to play. #DALatCLE

Earl K. Sneed

A.J. Price hits a three and the @Dallas Mavericks' lead is down to 97-92 with 4:21 left to play. #DALatCLE

Earl K. Sneed

I think Monta Ellis is done for the night. Head athletic trainer Casey Smith tapped him on the shoulder on the bench. He's done enough.

Dwain Price

Uh-uh. Monta Ellis limps off the court.

Earl K. Sneed

13 pts & 8 assists now for Monta Ellis. Remember, he suffered a sprained left knee last Thursday. Crazy durable. 97-86 Mavs with 5:36 left.

Earl K. Sneed

Nelson, Harris, Crowder, Parsons and Chandler on the floor out of the timeout. @Dallas Mavericks using the zone defense that they just installed.

Earl K. Sneed

Pull-up three from Devin Harris. I guess the Cavaliers didn't know that's his shot. @Dallas Mavericks up 95-85 with 6:54 left. #DALatCLE

Earl K. Sneed

Parsons and Chandler are also returning with 7:32 left to play. Guessing the starters won't play tomorrow night. #DALatCLE

Earl K. Sneed

Great hustle by Devin Harris. That looked like the young Devin that was with the Mavs earlier in his career. #DALatCLE

Earl K. Sneed

8-0 Cleveland run to open the 4th. Dirk is still out there, getting some good conditioning before sitting tomorrow in Indy. #DALatCLE

Earl K. Sneed

Waiters is now 4-of-9 from three, but just 4-of-15 from the field. @Dallas Mavericks' lead is just 88-85 with 9:32 left to play. #DALatCLE

Earl K. Sneed

Losing 10 pounds this summer, Crowder figures to be quicker and able to defend more twos this season. Expect to see him backing up Ellis.

Dwain Price

#Mavs lead 88-78 after the 3rd period.

Earl K. Sneed

Harris, Crowder, Aminu, Dirk & Smith open the 4th for the @Dallas Mavericks. Crowder is at the two. #DALatCLE

Dwain Price

"Shawn (Marion) and I keep in touch. We message every now and then on cyberdust." -- #Mavs owner Mark Cuban

Mark Followill

Mavs up 88-78 after 3 in Cleveland on TXA21. They had an 11-0 run in 3Q. Chandler Parsons and Jameer Nelson each have 19 pts

Earl K. Sneed

19 pts apiece for Jameer Nelson and Chandler Parsons through three quarters. @Dallas Mavericks take an 88-78 lead into the 4th. #DALatCLE

Dwain Price

"Right now we’re not thinking about winning the title. We’re thinking about jelling as a unit.'' -- #Cavs F Shawn Marion

Earl K. Sneed

Wow. DEEP three from Jameer Nelson. He has 19 pts on 7-of-8 shooting and 4-of-5 from three. #DALatCLE

Earl K. Sneed

Aminu with the three from the wing. He's growing more and more comfortable with that outside shot. #DALatCLE

Earl K. Sneed

3:25 left in the 3rd and the @Dallas Mavericks have regained control, leading 80-67. 19 pts for Parsons to go with 4 rebs & 3 assists. #DALatCLE

Dwain Price

That's just the 2nd FGM for LeBron.

Earl K. Sneed

Man, I love me a step-back jumper. Sweet crossover and step-back by Devin Harris over Kyrie Irving. #DALatCLE

Earl K. Sneed

I asked Rick Carlisle if Chandler Parsons was up for the challenge of defending LeBron tonight? LeBron has 4 pts on 1-of-4. That's a yes.

Earl K. Sneed

17 pts on 7-of-11 shooting for Parsons, and much of that has happened with LeBron guarding him. #DALatCLE

Earl K. Sneed

Chandler Parsons with the one-handed bank-in on a drive. Dude has looked awesome tonight. @Dallas Mavericks up 74-64 with 5:52 left in the 3rd.

Earl K. Sneed

Dirk sits with 16 pts on 5-of-10 shooting and 8 rebs in 23 minutes of work. #DALatCLE

Earl K. Sneed

Jameer Nelson is now up to 16 pts on 6-of-7 shooting. Dude is thriving in that starting role. #DALatCLE

Dwain Price

Monta Ellis probably gets less calls around the basket than any player in the NBA. I can't figure out why.

Earl K. Sneed

He's still Dirk Nowitzki.

Dwain Price

Rick Carlisle said right now he would put LeBron in the Top 5 all-time players. MJ is his No. 1 choice. He wouldn't say his other 3 players.

Earl K. Sneed

ANOTHER driving Chandler Parsons jam! He now has 14 pts, tying Dirk & Nelson for team-high honors. #DALatCLE

Earl K. Sneed

Dirk with the top-of-the-key three. @Dallas Mavericks up 65-63 in a competitive third quarter. #DALatCLE

Earl K. Sneed

It's raining threes early in the third. #DALatCLE

Earl K. Sneed

Nelson answers right back with a triple of his own. #DALatCLE

Earl K. Sneed

Kyrie opens the 3rd with a trey. He's up to 19 pts now. #DALatCLE
