LeBron just made a bounce pass from his knees and then a no-look pass on the same possession. He's scary good at times.

Earl K. Sneed

Ellis to Parsons from three. @Dallas Mavericks are answering the Cavs' charge right now. #DALatCLE

Earl K. Sneed

Once up by as many as 13, the @Dallas Mavericks hold a 46-41 lead with 7:20 left in the half. #DALatCLE

Earl K. Sneed

Cavaliers are finding success with this full-court press. It's making the @Dallas Mavericks guards work that much harder. #DALatCLE

Mark Followill

Mavs starters looked good in 1st, Mavs jumped out to 11 pt lead after 1, now up 43 35 in Cleveland with 833 left 2Q

Earl K. Sneed

That jam by Aminu has the @Dallas Mavericks up 43-35 with 8:33 left in the half. Mavs are still shooting well at 57.7% from the field. #DALatCLE

Earl K. Sneed

Dirk commits just the @Dallas Mavericks' 4th turnover of the half, but Al-Farouq gets a defensive stop and goes coast to coast at the other end.

Dwain Price

Aminu with the steal and coast-to-coast dunk.

Dwain Price

Had to laugh at myself. I was looking and thinking about who was that wearing those funny-looking Easter sneakers? Answer: LeBron James.

Earl K. Sneed

And then B-Wright takes flight like only B-Wright can... #DALatCLE

Earl K. Sneed

Young Al-Farouq is getting some valuable time with Dirk on the floor and B-Wright at center. #DALatCLE

Earl K. Sneed

Preseason double-double watch for Dirk, who has 9 pts & 5 rebs after one. Nelson leads all scorers with 11 pts & Ellis has 9 pts. #DALatCLE

Dwain Price

#Mavs led 37-26 after the 1st period. Nelson has 11 pt, 3 assists, Dirk with 9 pts. Mavs are shooting 57.1% from the field.

Dwain Price

"I’d cut Dirk (Nowitzki) if it made us better. It ain't going to make us better. But if it made us better I would.'' #Mavs owner Mark Cuban

Earl K. Sneed

Dirk returns along with RJ, joining Harris, Crowder and Wright. #DALatCLE

Earl K. Sneed

I did kinda sorta jump out of my seat. Kinda sorta. RT @Dallas Mavericks: @Earl K. Sneed that was nice huh #DALatCLE

Earl K. Sneed

Yes, but only for road games. RT @aryaahmadi: wonder if they'll continue to rock the black socks for road games. good look with that blue.

Earl K. Sneed

11 pts and 8 pts for Monta has the @Dallas Mavericks up 32-22 with 2:50 still in the 1st. Nice start for the first unit. #DALatCLE

Dwain Price

Jameer Nelson has 11 pts and 3 assists, and the #Mavs are up 32-22 with 2:50 left in the 1st period.

Dwain Price

Parsons with the flying dunk. Lebron was nearby, but helpless on that play.

Earl K. Sneed

Nelson to a cutting Parsons for the jam!!!! #DALatCLE

Earl K. Sneed

11 pts on 4-of-4 shooting and 2-of-2 from three for Jameer Nelson. In short, he's ballin'! #DALatCLE

Earl K. Sneed

Sweet driving move by Parsons out of the timeout. Carlisle draws up the best plays in the league out of a timeout, hands down. #DALatCLE

Dwain Price

The #Mavs' 1st unit already has 25 points in less than seven minutes. Not bad.

Earl K. Sneed

Back-to-back threes from Nelson and Ellis. @Dallas Mavericks are 4-of-5 from deep early and up 25-18 with 4:59 left in the 1st. #DALatCLE

Earl K. Sneed

It just got put in, though. RT @JRMFFL531: @Earl K. Sneed I'm not loving our Zone

Earl K. Sneed

Dirk sits with 7 pts on 2-of-4 shooting. @Dallas Mavericks up 19-16. #DALatCLE

Earl K. Sneed

Pretty step-back jumper by Parsons over LeBron. Love that step-back, young man. #DALatCLE

Dwain Price

I had a brain freeze when I saw Shawn Marion on the big board introduced as a Cav during pre-game intros here in Cleveland. I forgot.

Earl K. Sneed

After Dirk and Jameer score the first 12 @Dallas Mavericks points, Monta hits a triple. 15-10 Mavs early. #DALatCLE

Dwain Price

A relative of Shawn Marion's was slated to be on the same flight from DAL to CLE as Ebola patient Amber Vinson. But he missed his flight.

Earl K. Sneed

Jameer Nelson and Dirk have the @Dallas Mavericks' first 10 pts, scoring 5 pts each. Mavs up 10-5 early. #DALatCLE

Earl K. Sneed

LeBron and the ref just tripped over each other on the sideline. LeBron then bricks a three. #DALatCLE

Earl K. Sneed

Nelson follows that up with an and-one score. Nice start for the @Dallas Mavericks. #DALatCLE

Earl K. Sneed

Dirk opens the game with a jumper. He's still in mid-season form. #DALatCLE

Earl K. Sneed

Cavs roll with the 1st unit of LeBron, Thompson, Varejao, Waiters and Irving. #DALatCLE

Just a reminder we are televising tonight, Mavs at Cavs preseason basketball on TXA 21 about to tip off

Since Game 6 of the '11 Finals, the @Dallas Mavericks haven't beaten a LeBron James team. Granted it's preseason, but it'd still be nice to do so.
