The Aftermath of Mavericks 109, Knicks 102: We're thankful for Tyson and Dirk

On Thanksgiving Eve, Tyson Chandler led the Mavericks to overtime against his former team and Dirk Nowitzki shut the door. The aftermath Happy Thanksgiving! Socially acceptable I usually present these without comment, but seriously, the above Vine is my favorite thing this season. The still image below is just fantastic.

Quoteboard for Mavericks 109, Knicks 102: "It was a blood and guts kind of game."

Chandler put up season highs with 17 points and 24 rebounds, helping the Mavericks to a win despite mediocre play. Tyson Chandler's monstrous outing against his former team Tyson Chandler: "You know, at the beginning of the year you always look at the calendar and mark it [playing your former team], but honestly, once you get caught up in the season, it's not as big as it's made out to be. It really depends on how you're playing, how your team is playing. Like I said, this [win] is more important because we had dropped two and this is one that we felt like we should get." Dirk Nowitzki:...

Dirk Nowitzki: Win over Knicks was definitely one Tyson Chandler wanted

The Dallas Mavericks are not playing well. That’s not a media opinion. That’s what every player who was interviewed in their postgame locker room said about the team. So the Mavericks needed something special to jolt them out of the …

Four in the morning: More words to describe a no-good night at the office

OK, so we’re a little early with our 4 a.m. post tonight. Nevertheless, here’s our four game-night observations about the Dallas Mavericks’ inexcusable 111-100 loss to Indiana Monday night at American Airlines Center. Giving Dirk a little help: Dirk Nowitzki

Roundtable: Appreciating Dirk, the no. 9 all-time NBA scorer

The Big German is now the no. 9 scorer in NBA history, and there's plenty of more games left to get even higher. How far will he climb? It was all planned out: The Dallas Mavericks were going to beat the Houston Rockets, continue their winning streak and Dirk Nowitzki was going to ride on a white horse back to Dallas as the noble hero that he is. Well, yeah. About that ... But this is meant to be a happy time, nonetheless. Dirk moved up to ninth place on the NBA's all-time scoring list against the Sacramento Kings on Nov. 12. He is having the most efficient season of his career, especially...

Mavericks at Rockets final score: Houston outlasts Dallas 95-92

The Mavericks had a great second-half comeback, but the Houston Rockets ultimately prevailed, beating Dallas 95-92 and ending the Mavericks winning streak. This was not the game many of us expected to see. Despite facing a depleted Houston team, it took three rough quarters for the Mavericks offense to really get going, but even a strong comeback in the fourth quarter wasn't quite enough after three quarters of poor shooting (just 40 percent overall and 17 percent from three, with Dirk Nowitzki and Chandler Parsons combining for 0-13 from deep) and porous defense. The Rockets took this one...

Dirk: Rockets 'catching a break' with Mavs on back-to-backs

HOUSTON -- As a 17-year veteran, Dirk Nowitzki dreads back-to-backs under any circumstances. To have been on the butt end of a back-to-back for all four meetings against a fierce rival? That strikes Nowitzki as strange, to say the least. That’s the case for the Dallas Mavericks against the Houston Rockets this season. Without prompting, Nowitzki made a point to note it after Mavs’ 95-92 loss Saturday night. “They’re catching a break this year,” Nowitzki said, replying to a question about whether the Mavs failed to take advantage of a break with Rockets center Dwight Howard...

Kobe Bryant, Dirk Nowitzki: Two directions

DALLAS -- On one side: a title contender whose star who took less money. On the other: a rebuilding crew, starring the NBA's highest-paid player. For the traits that Kobe Bryant and Dirk Nowitzki share as 36-year-olds among the league's top-10 all-time leading scorers, that stark difference stood out most Friday during the Dallas Mavericks’ 140-106 demolition of the Los Angeles Lakers. Of course, it’s not so simple to say that the 3-10 Los Angeles Lakers are struggling just because Bryant accepted a two-year, $48.

Kobe Bryant commends NBA owners for making players feel pressured to take less money

Two of the four players in NBA history who have scored at least 27,000 points with one franchise will be on the court tonight at American Airlines Center. The Dallas Mavericks’ Dirk Nowitzki makes a shade under $8 million this …

The Aftermath of Mavericks 105, Wizards 102: Too much Jose Juan

FIVE IN A ROW, WHAT UP. The aftermath The Mavericks didn't play great, I don't think. They played good, in large part to an unsustainable but fantastic performance by J.J. Barea, but Dirk Nowitzki and Chandler Parsons shot 33 percent on 24 shot attempts while Jameer Nelson ... well, let me get to Jameer in a second. Point is, the Mavericks didn't play their best basketball and still notched their best win of the season. The Wizards aren't world beaters and I wouldn't place them higher than fourth-best in the Eastern Conference, but after loses to the prior three playoff teams from last...

3 Points: Can Mavs keep up offensive pace?

ESPNDallas.com columnist Jean-Jacques Taylor and MavsOutsider.com editor-in-chief Bryan Gutierrez will join me each week to run a three-man weave on a few questions on the minds of Mavs fans. 1. Can the Mavs keep up this historically efficient pace on offense? Gutierrez: Absolutely. Dallas has a main core of players that works harmoniously with Dirk Nowitzki, which is crucial. They believe in the “pace and space” approach. On top of that, this group possesses a high level of basketball IQ.

Mavericks outlast Wizards 105-102 after wild fourth quarter

Dallas ends a short east coast road trip with a 2-0 record, putting away the Wizards 105-102. After three ugly quarters of basketball, Washington and Dallas put on a show in the final period, with the Mavericks coming out on top 105-102. Monta Ellis led all scorers with 34 points. Bradley Beal led the Wizards off the bench with 21 points. After three straight games reigning fire on opponents early, the Mavericks cooled considerably in the first quarter against the Wizards. Washington jumped out to an early lead by isolating Dirk Nowitzki while the Mavericks missed a ridiculous number of...
