The Mavericks have no clue how to guard the Grizzlies' front court

Dallas lost big against the Grizzlies and a lot of it had to do with defensive mismatches. On Sunday night I rewatched parts of the Mavericks' loss to Memphis. I was at that game on Friday and spent half of my time in the press box genuinely confused at how Dallas was attempting to defend the Grizzlies' front court. I wanted to watch it again to confirm I wasn't crazy, and ... welp. Here's the problem: Dirk can guard Kosta Koufas. He cannot guard Marc Gasol, Zach Randolph or Jeff Green. Tyson Chandler can guard Koufas, Gasol and Randolph, but he'll struggle against Green. Amar'e Stoudemire...

Knicks to sign Ricky Ledo to a 10-day contract

Roundtable: Chandler Parsons' importance the rest of the season

He's made an impact in his three games back. Is he going to have to be relied on to carry the Mavs down the stretch? Chandler Parsons was deeply missed the seven games he was out with a sprained ankle. In the three games he's played since he's returned to the starting lineup, Parsons has been the key to the Dallas Mavericks' offensive resurgence. Parsons has averaged 17 points on 57 percent shooting, and scored 22 points in the Mavericks' rout of the Los Angeles Clippers on Friday. Now that Dallas is fully healthy, and can now integrate Amar'e Stoudemire with the rest of the lineup, the...
