Chill pill? Here's what seems clear after Mavericks have reversed their ugly start

The Mavericks are as hot as anybody in the NBA, one of three teams riding a four-game winning streak, including Saturday's 112-109 victory over the Golden State Warriors.They can trace it to what we call this "chill pill" quote from Dennis Smith Jr."We're growing defensively," said Dennis Smith Jr., who had 14, six assists, two steals and no turnovers. "Everything takes time. I feel like everybody was overreacting to what was happening. It was so early. Just take a chill pill, man. It's going to take time."But it's coming around.

Mavericks players, coaches join franchise's staff members for extra-meaningful Thanksgiving lunch

There is no evading the reality that, by and large, 2018 has been rather crummy for the Dallas Mavericks organization.On the court, the Mavericks finished the 2017-2018 season with a 24-58 record and missed the playoffs for the second straight season.Off the court, the franchise endured a seven-month investigation into allegations of years of sexual harassment and inappropriate behavior by a few members of the Mavericks' business-side operations.All of which made Friday's high-spirits gathering of Mavericks players, coaches, basketball operations staff and business-side employees for the...

There's rarely a good time to play the Warriors. But for the Mavericks, this may be a particularly bad time.

There's rarely a good time to play the Warriors. But for the Mavericks, this may be a particularly bad time.

Rarely, if ever, is there a good time to play Golden State, winner of the last two NBA titles and three of the last four.But if there is a particularly bad time to face the Warriors, as is the case for the Mavericks on Saturday night, this most certainly is it.Granted, league-leading scorer Stephen Curry is out with a groin strain, but the Warriors have three other reigning NBA All-Stars and are coming off a 21-point loss at Houston and the public embarrassment of the Draymond Green-Kevin Durant tiff."They've got a lot of weapons and they have some turmoil, which usually brings out the best...

Here are some highlights.Q: LeBron just jumped Wilt on the points list -- do you think Dirk will hit that mark, too?Sherrington: He needs about 240 points, which is a lot, given that he hasn't even suited up yet. But if he could average 10 points a game when he returns, he could do it easily. Even if he averages 6, he could do it if he plays, say, 40 games. But that's as high as he'll get on the...

Mavs rookie Luka Doncic (left shoulder) goes through full practice, should play against Golden State on Saturday

Mavericks fans held their breath Wednesday night after rookie phenom Luka Doncic underwent an x-ray on his left shoulder after the team's 50-point victory over the Jazz. But Doncic went through all of Mavs practice on Friday, and should play against the Golden State Warriors on Saturday. Doncic injured his left shoulder while crashing into a basket stanchion after blocking a Jae Crowder layup on Wednesday. The post-game X-ray was negative. Wesley Matthews, meanwhile, did not participate in parts of Friday's practice due to a hamstring strain.
