HoopsHype Dallas Mavericks twitter
In starting last 3 games of the '11 Finals, J.J. Barea had 40 pts, 8 reb. and 14 assists in 78 min. He was 16-of-32 on FGs, 5-of-10 on 3s.
Wow. A 'Melo to Amar'e fast break. When was the last time that happened?
Expected roster moves official for the Mavs. Gal Mekel released to make room for return of J.J. Barea who signed this eve. Welcome back JJ!
It'll be interesting to see which team picks up point guard Gal Mekel, who had a terrific training camp and deserves a better outcome.
Too bad for Mekel, but the kid signed a sweetheart deal, 3 yrs fully guaranteed. This is second year.
Mavs announce waive Gal Mekel. Sets up return of Barea as '11 title team recreation continues. Who's next J-Kidd after long Mil losing skid?
Dirk Nowitzki: "Monta (Ellis) is going to be great this year again. I think we’ve got a good team. It was a tough loss, but it’s early."
"It's going to be at least another week to 10 days before we can even talk about any kind of timetable.’’ -- Rick Carlisle on Raymond Felton
We fought hard last night but couldn't get that W.. We will be better!
Generally I don't believe in curses, but the Lakers, man...
Hate to see a rookie go down in his 1st game. Hate it more when it's a good kid. Even more when it's a Dallas kid. Good luck, Julius Randle.
It's seriously not out of the realm of possibilities that every team in the Southwest Division makes the playoffs this season.
Attention to my mentions: the word is "jell" when talking about a team coming together. Not "gel." Thank you and goodnight.
Turned HOU-LAL off at start of 4th, just seeing news about Dallas' own Julius Randle (broken right leg). Such a bummer, best wishes to him
Byron Scott seems to be enjoying his new gig. That's good.
Parsons said maybe he needed to make an extra pass to Monta at the end of the game. But he shot it with just one second left in the game.
First NBA opening night I'm not a part of in a while and have to admit it's a bit deflating. It was a good run. Hopefully back up soon.
This dude Duncan is just so boring: 14 pts, 13 boards, 2 asts and 2 blks for his 798th career double-double. Yada, yada, yada.
Dirk's advice to Parsons: "This is not a one-game season. There's 82 games in this season. He's got to get used to his new teammates."
With opener at SA in books, Mavs now play 2 of next 9 games vs playoff teams from last yr, at POR & home vs MIA. So we'll see how that goes
Parsons: "Me personally, I've got to step up. I can't have too many more nights like that."
Carlisle: "I love a lot of the things that we did. It was a great game. ... You can't kick off the season with a better game for the fans."
Looking ahead: Utah here Thurs, they open at home tomorrow v Houston. Mavs at New Orleans Sat, Anthony Davis 26P/17R/9B in win v Magic 2nite
In addition, Parker has never made more than 4 3s in any game in his career (reg or post)
Tony Parker 4/4 from 3, including winning 3 with 1:07 to go. He's gone 4/4 on 3s one other time in his career: 2/28/04 vs Denver
19-10 Mavs run since Spurs had 91-81 lead...
He. Is. Still. Dirk. Nowitzki.
Down 4 at the time, gonna lament two possessions after Spurs turnovers with chance to close gap
Carlisle is going to go back to Parsons, who is 1-of-7, with 6:42 remaining and down 89-81.
Parsons is still stuck on 2 pts on 1-of-7 shooting in 27 minutes.
Spurs went 22-4 when they made 10+ 3s last reg season. 11 made tonight so far
