A "Where is Rondo" chant breaks out at Philips Arena... #DALatATL

Earl K. Sneed

And to conclude the night my dude @Sir_Foster plays Jay Z's "U Don't Know." Classic. Really enjoyed the tunes tonight.

Dwain Price

Dirk has a season-low 4 pts.

Earl K. Sneed

With just four points, this would be a new season-low scoring output for Dirk Nowitzki. His previous low was eight on Sunday. #DALatATL

Dwain Price

#Mavs had won 17 in a row on the road vs. the East dating back to last season. (13-0 this season).

Earl K. Sneed

Felton, Barea, Jefferson, Powell and Smith on the floor for the @Dallas Mavericks right now. #DALatATL

Earl K. Sneed

Dirk checks out with 9:44 left before a Korver three lifts the Hawks to an 89-68 lead. The big German might be done for the night.

Dwain Price

#Mavs down 86-68 with 10:04 left in the game. They look tired...and beaten.

Dwain Price

Such a long way -- in the snow and ice -- just to play one game. #Silver #ErnieBanks #Play2

Nasty crossover and jumper for Devin Harris. That one will make the highlight reel. #DALatATL

Earl K. Sneed

Schroder puts the Hawks up 10. This is after the @Dallas Mavericks led by as many as 14 in the 1st half. #DALatATL

Dwain Price

How many of these simple passes are the #Mavs going to turn into turnovers before the night is over?

Earl K. Sneed

It's a two-man show for the @Dallas Mavericks with Monta Ellis and J.J. Barea carrying the offensive load right now. They need help. #DALatATL

Earl K. Sneed

Dirk has 2 pts on 4 shots. Somebody might want to get the ball to the Big German some more. #DALatATL

Earl K. Sneed

If you're enjoying the Hawks' organist during the game, you can follow him @Sir_Foster. His album is also on iTunes: itunes.apple.com/us/album/futur…

Mark Followill

Good stuff for Mavs, shooting 52.6% and outrebounding Hawks 23-16. Bad for Mavs, only 3 timeouts remaining for rest of game.

Monta Ellis with a timely three, giving him 13 points on 6-of-8 shooting. #DALatATL

Mavs lead 45-39 with 5:31 left 2Q on @FSSouthwest. Dennis Schroder has 10 to lead Atlanta rally in 2nd.

Earl K. Sneed

There's a kid in a Rondo Celtics jersey here at Philips Arena. I'm guessing he's not very entertained right now.

Earl K. Sneed

Teague scores on a drive, leading to another timeout by Carlisle with the @Dallas Mavericks up just 43-39 and 6:19 left in the half. #DALatATL

Earl K. Sneed

Schroder for three, and the Hawks are within six, 43-37. #DALatATL

Earl K. Sneed

Bruh, the Hawks' organist is playing Nas' "If I ruled the world." This guy is off the chain.

Dwain Price

The clock is messed up. There's water on the floor. A storm is outside. Can I please get a flight to Miami?

Earl K. Sneed

Meanwhile, the organist is playing FWMYKIGI...

Dwain Price

Can we finish this on the Hawks' practice court, which is just steps away? I'm sure we can squeeze everybody in there.

Earl K. Sneed

Why not? Everything else has happened today.

Earl K. Sneed

And we have a leak in the roof here at Philips Arena. #DALatATL

Dwain Price

Is the building leaking? You're kidding me!!! #PhilipsArena

Earl K. Sneed

Devin Harris with 2 FTs, and the shorthanded @Dallas Mavericks lead 24-13 with 3:36 left in the 1st. #DALatATL

Earl K. Sneed

Sweet finish by Sarge off the pick-and-roll with Devin, and the @Dallas Mavericks lead 22-13 with 4:14 left in the 1st. #DALatATL

Dwain Price

I'm guessing there's about 6,000 folks in the building. But I didn't count them, so it may be 10,000 when all is said and done. #Hotlanta

Earl K. Sneed

The hip-hop organist in Atlanta is reason enough to come to the Hawks' games. And I heard he's a Nupe, too.

Earl K. Sneed

Carroll for three to open the night for ATL. Jefferson returns fire with a trey of his own. #DALatATL

Earl K. Sneed

Quite the day in @Dallas Mavericks news. Let's see how the team responds shorthanded against the best team in the East. #DALatATL

Dwain Price

The #Mavs had their bags packed, thinking the NBA was going to postpone this game because of inclement weather.

Dwain Price

Bernard James starts for Tyson Chandler, and J.J. Barea starts for Rajon Rondo.

Mark Followill

Barea starts for Rondo. Sarge in for Tyson. Mavs at Hawks now on @FSSouthwest

Earl K. Sneed

Both Amar'e Stoudemire (rest) and Tyson Chandler (hip contusion) are in their warmups, but neither will play tonight. #DALatATL

Earl K. Sneed

Ken Bazemore gets on the mic and thanks the Hawks fans for coming out in the inclement weather. Nice touch. #DALatATL

Earl K. Sneed

Hawks come out to that Jay Z and Rick Ross joint on Holy Grail, which has a title I can't tweet. That's petty dope, though.

Dwain Price

Despite suspension, Carlisle stressed Rondo’s importance to the Mavs star-telegram.com/sports/nba/dal…

Mark Followill

Carlisle says their objective is to get Stoudemire strong enough to play back to backs. Worth noting only 3 left this season after this one

Mark Followill

To recap: Rondo, Tyson, Parsons and Amar'e out. 11 players avail for Mavs tonight vs Hawks

Mark Followill

We'll have some of the comments from Rick's pregame press conference tonight. Top of the show at 6:30 & during the game as well
