The Mavericks have gone from first place in the Southwest Division to a two-game losing streak.Just don't blame Dirk Nowitzki.He's not any happier than you are that the Mavericks are 0-2 since he made his debut on Thursday in Phoenix. But it's not his fault, obviously. He's just getting his legs back under him after more than eight months recovering from ankle surgery."It was definitely a step forward," he said of his second game. "I played a few more minutes and thought my wind was better. Plugging along in the right direction."But we are 0-2 since I've been back. We lost two tough games we...

'It was a no-brainer': How Luka Doncic won over the entire Mavericks' organization long before the NBA draft

This time, there was no sales pitch needed by Donnie Nelson.You may recall that Nelson has occasionally had to put his, um, credibility on the line when it came time for the Mavericks to draft players.Sometimes, his selling job fell on deaf ears. He was all over Giannis Antetokounmpo, but was overruled by owner Mark Cuban.Sometimes, he makes a convincing case and the Mavericks end up with Dirk Nowitzki.When it came to Luka Doncic, the Mavericks' president and general manager had done years of homework. And he was ready to go to battle to convince Cuban and coach Rick Carlisle that the 6-8...

Nowitzki: It's always 'super emotional' as he makes Santa Dirk appearance

One of Dirk Nowitzki's favorite days of the year, and certainly one of the most emotional, came Friday.The Mavericks' legend made his annual appearance at Children's Medical Center Dallas and whether the kids and staffers there call him Uncle Dirk or Santa Dirk or just plain Dirk, it's still a day that makes everybody forget about basketball and remember what's really important."It was super emotional again," said Nowitzki, who has been spending a day at the hospital for many years.

Dirk Nowitzki may have compared himself to a tree after season debut; what Mavs teammates had to say about his return

PHOENIX -- Even though he had a "timmm-berrrr" moment, Dirk Nowitzki came out of his season debut in game No. 27 in relatively good shape.It was just a 6-minute, 10-second stretch bridging the first and second quarters in a sloppy 99-89 loss to the Phoenix Suns.The outcome of the game wasn't what the Mavericks wanted. But having Nowitzki on the court was therapeutic in its own way."I felt OK," he said. "Obviously the wind wasn't great. There was a stretch where I went back and forth a couple times and then I fell over like a tree at some point [because] I was so tired. But it was good to be...

Why Dirk Nowitzki won't play a lot of minutes for the Mavs this season

Kevin Sherrington, sports columnist for SportsDayDFW.com and The Dallas Morning News, answered your questions about the Cowboys, Rangers, Mavericks and local college sports during a live chat recently. Here are some highlights.Q: When do you expect Dennis Smith Jr. to be back in the lineup?Sherrington: No idea, but there's no rush, either. Jalen Brunson has played very well in his absence. You know, when the Mavs got Brunson, I thought that was a tremendous get. Because of his experience at Villanova, it was easier to see that he could make the transition. He's a smart guy, doesn't rattle. I...
