Tech on Ivan Johnson with 2:46 left. #DALatNOP

Earl K. Sneed

Rick Carlisle just went to correct the P.A. announcer, who keeps mispronouncing Ricky Ledo's name. Well done, Coach. Well done.

Earl K. Sneed

Mekel for three! @Dallas Mavericks are within two, 77-75. #DALatNOP

Earl K. Sneed

Mekel to Ledo on the break. But Jeff Withey comes back with a slam at the other end. Ledo then brings the @Dallas Mavericks within five, 77-72.

Earl K. Sneed

Ivan Johnson for 3! @Dallas Mavericks within five, 71-66. #DALatNOP

Earl K. Sneed

14 pts for Crowder & 13 pts for Villanueva for the @Dallas Mavericks, who trail 68-61 with 8:17 left to play. #DALatNOP

Mark Followill

Great night out at the 1st annual Mavs Run This Town 5K. Enjoyed seeing MFFLs out there. If u missed this yr, start making plans for 2015!

Earl K. Sneed

OHHHHH!!! Charlie V. with the spinning fake and layup. That was pretty! #DALatNOP

Dwain Price

The #Pelicans lead the #Mavs 59-55 after the 3rd period.

Dwain Price

Charlie Villanueva just hit a 3 and turned around and said: "About (???) time.'' He missed his three 3's in the 1st half.

Earl K. Sneed

Gorgeous move by Charlie V. He then steps back for a three. @Dallas Mavericks down 55-50. #DALatNOP

OH, BABY! Gal Mekel with the crossover and finger roll through the WHOLE New Orleans defense... #DALatNOP

Anthony Davis doing Anthony Davis things... #DALatNOP

Earl K. Sneed

6:09 left in the 3rd and the @Dallas Mavericks trail 44-39, despite 14 pts for Crowder. #DALatNOP

Earl K. Sneed

Mekel to Crowder on the break this time. We're seeing why Crowder slimmed down this summer. He looks lean and quick in Year 3. #DALatNOP

Earl K. Sneed

Nice drive by Jae Crowder, who is carrying the @Dallas Mavericks' offense tonight. @Dallas Mavericks down 42-35, though, with 9:05 left in the 3rd.

Earl K. Sneed

Richard Jefferson just got up HIGH to block Omer Asik. Very high. #DALatNOP

Dwain Price

#Mavs shooting 33.3% on FGs. They committed no turnovers in the 2nd quarter. Jae Crowder leads them in scoring with 12.

Dwain Price

The game has picked up some speed. The #Mavs now on pace to score 66 points.

Earl K. Sneed

Mekel with the buzzer-beating layup at the end of the half but the @Dallas Mavericks trail 38-33 at the intermission. #DALatNOP

Dwain Price

#Pelicans lead the #Mavs at the half 38-33.

Earl K. Sneed

Crowder has began to assert himself late in the half. He and Charlie V. have the green light tonight. #DALatNOP

Earl K. Sneed

Al-Farouq is looking impressive against his former team. He's been one of the bright spots for the @Dallas Mavericks in the 1st half. #DALatNOP

Earl K. Sneed

6:06 left in the half and the @Dallas Mavericks trail 31-21. #DALatNOP

Earl K. Sneed

8:20 left in the half and the @Dallas Mavericks trail 26-19. #DALatNOP

Dwain Price

Seven turnovers in the 1st for the Mavs, not 8.

Earl K. Sneed

Sarge has looked pretty good inside. This an opportunity for him to really make some noise. #DALatNOP

Dwain Price

The #Mavs were 4-of-16 on FGs in the 1st period, were outrebounded 14-8, and committed 8 turnovers. Tyrke Evans outscored the Mavs 11-10.

Dwain Price

It's a good thing this game isn't on TV. Who would watch it?

Earl K. Sneed

Crowder strikes to open the 2nd, but Ryan Anderson comes right back with a three. @Dallas Mavericks are going to need some defensive stops.

Dwain Price

#Mavs on pace to score 40 points. That's a really good game for the old Dirk.

Earl K. Sneed

Playing without their top seven players, the @Dallas Mavericks trail 23-10 after one. #DALatNOP

Dwain Price

The #Pelicans lead after the1st period 23-10. That's right. The #Mavs have 10 points.

Earl K. Sneed

Pretty drive by Doron Lamb. That was the best play of the 1st period for the @Dallas Mavericks, who trail 14-6, after an Evans 3. #DALatNOP

Dwain Price

They're playing the song "You're Unbelievable" right now. Are they talking about this game?

Dwain Price

It's 8-4 #Pelicans over the #Mavs with 3:50 left in the 1st quarter. This is not a typographical error. #eyeshurting

Earl K. Sneed

Carlisle calls timeout with his team down 8-4 and 3:50 left in the 1st. Lamb and Ledo on deck for the @Dallas Mavericks in this slugfest.

Dwain Price

It's 6-4 Pelicans with under 5 minutes left in the first quarter. It really is.

Earl K. Sneed

Ugly affair for both teams so far, but the @Dallas Mavericks only trail by two, 6-4, midway through the 1st. #DALatNOP

Dwain Price

Five minutes into this game and it already has that AAU feel to it. #silver

Earl K. Sneed

Pelicans have their starting five on the court, by the way. Holiday, Gordon, Evans, Davis & Asik. #DALatNOP

Dwain Price

The #Mavs started Crowder, Smith, Aminu, Jefferson and Mekel.

Earl K. Sneed

Mekel opens the game with a jumper. He's playing with a lot of confidence this year. #DALatNOP

Dwain Price

Dirk Nowitzki was signing autographs and taking lots of photos with fans before the game behind the #Mavs' bench.

Earl K. Sneed

The number of selfies with Dirk in them might set a record after this game. #DALatNOP

Earl K. Sneed

Dirk & Parsons are now signing autographs and taking pics in the crowd. haha Yeah, they're definitely out. #DALatNOP

Earl K. Sneed

Add Monta to the list of guys not warming up for the @Dallas Mavericks. Looking like the top seven rotation guys might be out. #DALatNOP

Earl K. Sneed

Dirk is posing for pictures with fans during the warmup line. Then Dirk, Tyson, Jameer and B-Wright stand off to the side. #DALatNOP

Earl K. Sneed

The @Dallas Mavericks take the court to a nice ovation. One guy booed. I don't expect to see the main guys but everyone is in uniform tonight.

Earl K. Sneed

To clarify, the @Dallas Mavericks have until Monday to make their final cuts. Tonight and tomorrow night could prove to be the difference.

Earl K. Sneed

A lot of @Dallas Mavericks shirts here in Bossier City. The people are showing their respect for the "visiting team." #DALatNOP

Dwain Price

"I will always put my trust in Rick Carlisle. He's one of the best Xs and Os type of coach that this league has seen." - TNT's Reggie Miller

Dwain Price

The #Mavs won't play their top players tonight against the #Pelicans. Their starting lineup will be out in full force Fri. in Orlando.

Dwain Price

Why do the NBA allow teams to play back-2-back games in preseason? I wouldn't play my best players in both games either. Too risky.

Dwain Price

#Mavs PG Raymond Felton (high right ankle sprain) has progressed to the point where he's doing hydro pool work.

Dwain Price

The #Mavs need to cut at least 3 more players by Saturday. They have 18 players now, and the NBA maximum is 15.

Dwain Price

The #Mavs had a shootaround in Dallas today, will fly to Boosier City, La., at 3, play the #Pelicans tonight, and fly to ORL after the game.

Dwain Price

Tyson Chandler missed just 47 of 230 games during his 3-year tenure with the #Knicks. That includes 27 games last year.

And JJ Redick just got hit with double T's & was tossed from a preseason game. After he fouled out too, so he was playing with house money

Jeff Caplan

So awesome if he went face paint. RT @cjzero: Steve Ballmer going HAM on the Staples Center scoreboard vine.co/v/OhKxAUv1t13

RSL beat Chivas 2-0, so FC Dallas will need a win in finale vs Portland Saturday to secure 3rd place & automatic spot in conf semis.

Well done Perez. That will work

Nice inning here, hopefully Perez will have a better AB than he did in the 8th inning of the wild card game vs Oakland
