3 fouls on Dalembert with 4:07 in the half. That could prove costly. @dallasmavs down 43-41. #DALatMEM

Mark Followill

Dirk is 5/8 for 12 pts, off bench Harris, Wright & Carter have combined for 19. Mavs lead Memphis 41-39, mid 2Q on TXA21

Earl K. Sneed

Suddenly I don't have wifi, but the @dallasmavs have taken a 41-39 lead with 5:51 left in the half. Huge stretch from the Mavs' bench.

Dwain Price

Mama, there go those men again. Harris alley-oop dunk to Wright.

Earl K. Sneed

Dirk now in double figures with 10 pts on 4-of-6 shooting and the @dallasmavs have inched within three, 31-28, with 9:59 in the half.

Dirk now in double figures with 10 pts on 4-of-6 shooting and the @dallasmavs have inched within three, 31-28, with 9:59 in the 3rd.

Earl K. Sneed

8 pts for Dirk after one, but the @dallasmavs trailed by as many as 10 in the 1st and enter the 2nd down 29-24. #DALatMEM

Dwain Price

#Grizzlies lead after the 1st period 29-24.

Dwain Price

Vince brought out the motorcycle on that one.

Earl K. Sneed

Calathes with the corner 3 off the Gasol feed and the Grizzlies surge ahead 28-18. Enter Brandan Wright. #DALatMEM

Earl K. Sneed

.@dallasmavs defensive coordinator Monta Mathis: "If Gasol is in a post-up, double him." Gasol: "What's that?" #DALatMEM

Memphis in front of Dallas 23-16 w/ 3:39 left 1Q on TXA21. Dirk has 8 already. Came into tonight 13th in scoring, 21.6 ppg

Earl K. Sneed

Carlisle forced to burn a timeout but it only makes this place get louder. @dallasmavs down 23-16 with 3:39 left in the 1st. #DALatMEM

Dwain Price

A Bob Lanier (left-handed) hook by Dirk.

Earl K. Sneed

Dirk with the much-needed and one after the Grizzlies went ahead by seven. Big three-point play for the Big German. #DALatMEM

Earl K. Sneed

5:42 left in the 1st and the Grizzlies are up 16-11. @dallasmavs are going to have to work to end Memphis' 13-game home winning streak.

Earl K. Sneed

Both teams seem to have worked through some early pre-playoff nerves. Calderon off to a nice start but Memphis leads 12-6 early. #DALatMEM

Dwain Price

Monta Ellis has now started all 82 games for the 2nd year in a row. He is the only member of the Mavs to play all 82 games this year.

Earl K. Sneed

.@dallasmavs starters: Calderon, Ellis, Marion, Dirk & Dalembert. #DALatMEM

Mark Followill

Pretty sure some intense Copa Del Rey trash talk just happened between Jose Calderón (Madrid fan) and Marc Gasol (Barca supporter)

Mark Followill

Teams are out on the floor for Game 82 here in Memphis, sad to see it end but excited for the playoffs. Mavs at Grizz, 7p on TXA21

Duncan and Belinelli will sit out #Spurs finale at #Lakers.

.@Mark Cuban on the playoffs: "It's going to be a battle, it's going to be a war. We're going to have to stay healthy and fight it out."

Wish Michael Heisley could be here for the game. Truly a great man.

Earl K. Sneed

.@Mark Cuban: "It was brutal after last year, and now we've got to win in the playoffs. We've go to win tonight first." #DALatMEM

It's always going to be a good night when you hear @ryanleslie played in an NBA arena during pregame.

.@dallasmavs owner @Mark Cuban had a promo for Shark Tank today on Good Morning America, so he's in Memphis in shirt & slacks. No T-shirt.

Dwain Price

If the #Mavs play OKC or the #Clippers in the 1st round, Game 1 will be Saturday. If they play the #Spurs, Game 1 will be Sun. at noon.

Jeff Caplan

G1s: WEST Sat: @ OKC, TBD; @ LAC, TBD Sun: @ SA, 1 pm ET; Port @ Hou, 9:30 EAST Sat: Atl @ Ind, TBD; @ Tor, TBD Sun: @ Mia, 3:30; @ Chi, 7

NBA has released partial game 1 playoff schedules. If Mavs play at SA, game is Sunday at Noon CT. If at OKC or LAC, Saturday w/ time TBD

#RP from the homie j1flight. My thoughts exactly. instagram.com/p/m3c0g9C6VA/

Dwain Price

If OKC beats Detroit, the NBA could release the playoff schedule at the end of tonight's 7 p.m. CDT games. We'll know the pairings by then.

Dwain Price

Miami's won 46 playoff games the past three years. That's crazy.

Dwain Price

The #Spurs are the only team with 60+ wins this yr. Seven more have 50 + wins. The #Mavs (49-32) and #Grizzlies (49-32) wanna be there too.

Dwain Price

The #Mavs have won almost as many road games (23) as home games (26) this yr. So not having homecourt advantage maybe a good thing for them.

Mark Followill

Nice hearing Ian Darke & Macca on the TV today...have missed a weekly dose of those guys

Mark Followill

Note that bears repeating: Run-in for Grizzlies (15-6) & Mavs (13-6). 3rd & 4th best records in West respectively since March 7.

Carlisle: "This game is a great primer for what's coming this weekend, regardless of who we play."

#Mavs F Jae Crowder: "It’s not to avoid anybody. We feel like we can beat anybody in this league.''

Dwain Price

"It's more like we have pride and we have goals, and we’re trying to reach that 50-mark.'' -- #Mavs C Samuel Dalembert

Dwain Price

"I think the motivation is going to be there for both teams. It's an opportunity and we've got to attack it.'' -- #Mavs coach Rick Carlisle

Earl K. Sneed

Carlisle says @dallasmavs are not out to avoid Spurs but to get win #50: "If you can get a higher seed, if you can get 50 wins, you do it."

Dwain Price

League hands down automatic 1 gm suspension to Blake Griffin for a 16th T. Will sit out tonight at Port. If OKC loses, a LAC W gets 2-seed.

"We just want to reach one of our goals, and it's to get 50 wins.'' -- #Mavs F Jae Crowder

Really is great for the collective sports energy of the city to see the Stars & Mavs together again in the playoffs. Its been too long!

Dwain Price

"If you can get a higher seed, if you can get 50 wins, you do it.’’ -- #Mavs coach Rick Carlisle

Dwain Price

The #Mavs will open the playoffs against the #Spurs, #Thunder or #Clippers, and coach Rick Carlisle said they have all 3 teams well scouted.

Dwain Price

Get your Granola bars ready. Both the #Mavs and #Grizzlies are going to play to win tonight. They each want to get to 50 wins.

Dwain Price

After practice in Memphis today, the #Mavs say they're not trying to avoid the #Spurs in the playoffs. They just want to get to 50 wins.

Matchup of streaks tonight, Mavs have won 6 straight on road (franchise record is 8). Grizzlies have won 13 in a row at home

Mark Followill

Tonight's Mavs at Grizz finale is at 7p & as I am sure most of you know, 7th seed & a 50 win season at stake for the winner

Samuel Dalembert

Last regular season game and so much at stake. #timetowork #winmavswin

Mark Followill

Just a reminder that tonight's Mavs game in Memphis & all 1st round playoff games (unless on ABC) will be broadcast by us on TXA21

Dwain Price

Got to love the NBA. They made a way for ALL 30 teams to play tonight on the final day of the regular season. Some good matchups too. #stern

Dwain Price

Tonight, if the #Clippers win at PORT and OKC loses at home to DET, the #Mavs-#Grizzlies winner will open the playoffs vs. the Clippers.

Dwain Price

In theory, for the #Mavs and #Grizzlies, the playoffs start tonight. Both teams are trying to avoid playing the #Spurs in the 1st round.

Dwain Price

The #Mavs were 2-1 against the #Thunder this season, and the #Grizzlies were 1-3 vs. OKC. Mavs and Grizzlies were each 0-4 vs. the Spurs.

Kevin Ollie made $1.25 million this season. Kentucky coach John Calipari made $5.5 million. Do the right thing and close that gap UConn.

Dwain Price

UConn coach Kevin Ollie recently ran the bell at the NY Stock Exchange. UConn needs to rang his phone and give him a raise.

#Mavs are 1-2 against OKC. Westbrook, Perkins and Sefolosha didn't play in the game the Mavs won. It was the worst loss of the yr. for OKC.

Dwain Price

Truth be told, neither the #Mavs or the #Grizzlies want to play the #Spurs. You ever wonder how that makes the #Thunder feel?

Jae Crowder

I LOVE MY FAMILY http://t.co/DL206IQeRw

That the Mavs & Grizz are in this position tomorrow is impressive. Since March 7, MEM (15-6), DAL (13-6). 3rd & 4th in West in that time

Interesting peek at #Spurs record against teams on potential playoff path back to NBA Finals: > Mem/Dal 8-0 > Hou 0-4 > OKC 0-4

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

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.
