Inside Report: @Dallas Mavericks hope to have Monta Ellis, J.J. Barea when they conclude season series with Thunder mavs.com/game-75-mavs-a…

Mike Prada

I'd be curious to see what happens if a team uses the '05-Mavs-on-Nash strategy with GSW: let Curry go off, take everyone else away.

Chris Sheridan

In the Western Conference playoffs, who do you want in the first round? In this @CineSport video, I say the #Mavs sheridanhoops.com/2015/03/31/she…

Jimmy Spencer

Fool’s gold? The Clippers lose to the Mavericks and Rockets, win seven in a row vs. a weak schedule, then lose at home to Golden State.

Dwain Price

"If he's feeling good and you want to try to talk him out of playing, you're welcome to.'' -- #Mavs coach Rick Carlisle on SG Monta Ellis

Paul Garcia

Just thought I'd mention the Spurs have last their last two games on Tuesday on the road (Knicks, Mavs). Something about today...

Dwain Price

#Mavs coach Rick Carlisle describes OKC as: "An aggressive hot team with a great player that’s playing at an MVP-caliber level."

Chris Sheridan

Why do the #Grizzlies and #Rockets really, really want to play the #Mavs in round one? wp.me/p1Ogzi-nyR

Dwain Price

"He's not going to play unless he's 100 percent." -- #Mavs coach Rick Carlisle on Monta Ellis, who went through all of practice today

Inside Report: @DallasMavs know they need better execution late without Monta Ellis mavs.com/mavs-know-they…

Ryan Ward

Only 9 games left: Pelicans (4/1), Blazers (4/3), Clippers (4/5,4/7), Nuggets (4/8), T’Wolves (4/10), Mavs(4/12) & Kings(4/13,4/15) #Lakers

Dwain Price

The #Mavs took today off and will practice tomorrow before leaving for Oklahoma City. They play the #Thunder on Wednesday.

Earl K. Sneed

Inside Report: Chandler Parsons, Rajon Rondo step up in @DallasMavs' 1st test without Monta Ellis mavs.com/chandler-parso…

Jeff Wade

So after consulting with the future, The Mavericks will open the first round at Houston.

Tim MacMahon

Monta Ellis' absence is far from ideal for Mavs, but it does provide trial period for Chandler Parsons as go-to guy. es.pn/1NsO281

Dwain Price

#Mavs are 45-29 with just 8 games left. Will they win 50 games? They still play OKC, HOUS, GS, PHX and PORT. Plus DEN, UTAH and the LAL.

Dwain Price

"I like Parsons' game. Other than a couple of tough turnovers in the fourth, I thought he was terrific.'' -- #Mavs coach Rick Carlisle

Dwain Price

#Mavs PG Rajon Rondo: "I think our offense was dicated off how we got stops in the first half and we were able to push the pace."

Dwain Price

"Parsons and Rondo were phenomenal. And I thought Felton came in and changed the pace for us on occasions.'' -- #Mavs F Dirk Nowitzki

Dwain Price

The #Mavs will make the playoffs. The question is, will they be a 7th or 8th seed? Or do they have the juice to get to 4th-6th seeds?

Dwain Price

The #Mavs are finished with the East for this season. They were 21-9 overall against their Eastern brothers, including 13-2 on the road.

Tim Cato

real reason Kanye wants everyone changing their profile pictures to a shade of blue is to raise awareness for how terrible the Mavs are now

Tim Cato

I'm just happy it looks like the Mavs are gonna play teams that I can roadtrip to. That should be fun.

Tim Cato

💀💀💀 RT @KirkSeriousFace: THE MAVS HAVE A LOWER NET RATING THAN THE LAKERS SINCE ALL STAR BREAK

Anthony Slater

Something to watch: Thunder now only 3 back of Mavs for coveted #7 seed (no Warriors). Dallas in OKC on Wednesday.

Jeff Caplan

Not likely, but not impossible either, for #Thunder (42-32) to flip-flop w #Mavericks (45-29). Both teams rest till Wed showdown at OKC.

Greg Rappaport

Indiana outscored the Mavs in every quarter but the second, and most importantly, started the game strong.

Pacers grab one of their biggest wins of the season, a 104-99 win against the playoff-bound Mavericks nba.com/pacers/rewind-…

Mark Followill

Pacers hang on and beat Mavs 104-99. CJ Miles with 28 and the Pacers hit all 10 of their 3s in the 1st and 4th qtrs. Mavs now 45-29

Earl K. Sneed

INSTANT ANALYSIS: Minus Monta Ellis, @Dallas Mavericks come up short in Indiana mavs.com/game-74-mavs-a… #DALatIND

Derek Page

This was one of the few remaining winnable games for #Mavericks, and they blew it. Defense just as bad without Monta, offense comparable.

Dwain Price

The #Pacers shot 50%; #Mavs 44.4%. Indy made 10 of 17 3s, Mavs 6 of 15 3s. Pacers won rebound battle 43-41.

Adam Himmelsbach

The Pacers just grabbed a big home win vs. the Mavericks. Now tied for 9th with the Celtics.
