Recap: Warriors complete road trip, season sweep of Mavericks 112-87

Recap: Warriors complete road trip, season sweep of Mavericks 112-87

Warriors end the road back-to-back with signature victories over Thunder and Mavericks. The Golden State Warriors completed a 3-0 season sweep of the Dallas Mavericks with a resounding 112-87 win in Dallas. With Andre Iguodala resting and the Warriors coming off an emotional game against the Oklahoma Thunder on the previous night, questions about their ability to keep up their momentum hung in the air. While the Mavericks started well, leading by two at the end of the first quarter, the Warriors broke the game open in the second quarter and continued to assert their dominance as the game...

Wizards vs. Mavericks final score: Washington stumbles late in 112-107 loss to Mavericks

Wizards vs. Mavericks final score: Washington stumbles late in 112-107 loss to Mavericks

After a long road trip out west, it would’ve been easy for the exhausted Wizards to coast to a loss Wednesday night against the visiting Dallas Mavericks. But Washington came out with some fire, led to an early lead by the steady play of Bradley Beal and John Wall. They diligently maintained the lead through three quarters, never allowing the Mavericks closer than an arm’s length away. Then, the moment Washington relaxed, the Mavericks struck. Dallas locked down a suddenly jumbled Washington offense with timely double teams and active help defense. The Mavericks added timely...

Raptors cruise to win over Mavericks, 100-78

Raptors cruise to win over Mavericks, 100-78

A much-needed easy win for the Raptors has everyone smiling. There are a few constants for the Raptors right now. DeMar DeRozan gets buckets, Jonas Valanciunas works when he can on offense (and gets exposed on D), Serge Ibaka brings a sharp professionalism. After that, there’s a lot of uncertainty. Case in point: coach Dwane Casey tried ten different players in the first quarter against the Dallas Mavericks, and opened the second with a completely rejigged all bench lineup. Did it work? Well, the Raptors beat the Mavericks 100-76, so yes. Oh yeah, and the fans got their free slice of...

Behind the scenes of Dirk Nowitzki’s big night

Behind the scenes of Dirk Nowitzki’s big night

Some quotes from an unforgettable night at American Airlines Center There was a buzz in American Airlines Center. It had hung in the air for the previous two games but tonight it reached a crescendo. “Will he do it?” “What quarter?” Everyone in the building wanted to know if he or she would witness history tonight. Coming into the night, Dirk Nowitzki, the face of the Dallas Mavericks for the past 19 seasons, was a mere 20 points away from 30,000 for his career. Only five players have previously crossed a threshold in NBA history. While the excitement in the building was tangible,...

There will never be another Dirk Nowitzki

There will never be another Dirk Nowitzki

There will be more 30,000 point scorers, but there won’t be another number 41. My first memory of Dirk Nowitzki from way back in 2001 is lodged deep in my brain. I was on the cusp of being a teenager, and I hated sports. Hated them. I was too tall for a seventh grader, so of course I was thrown into basketball. Of course, I hated it, but when you’re taller than everyone else in middle school, there isn’t much discussion — you’re playing basketball and your ass better not get out of the paint. It sucked, and standing in the paint and getting my ass kicked every practice wasn’t...

Dirk Nowitzki rises once more

Dirk Nowitzki rises once more

The greatest player in franchise history puts on an amazing show. DALLAS — When 30,000 points came knocking, Dirk Nowitzki rose to the moment as he has countless times over the last two decades, notching 25 points and 11 rebounds in a 122-111 Mavericks win over the lowly Los Angeles Lakers. The American Airlines Center hummed with a buzz unusual for a Tuesday night game in March against a lottery-bound opponent. Shortly after tip-off the hum emanating from the sea of gray t-shirts crescendoed into a playoff roar. The Big German needed 20 points to eclipse 30,000, but 20-point games...

Many many people were quite happy for everyone’s favorite German. I’m sure you’re all aware at this point that our hero, Dirk Nowitzki, joined an exclusive club tonight. Only the sixth player to ever score 30,000+ points. Kind of a big deal. Needless to say, many people all over the basketball world were offering up their congrats.

3 things as Mavs ride tidal wave of emotion to rout Lakers, 122-111

3 things as Mavs ride tidal wave of emotion to rout Lakers, 122-111

This one definitely felt different. The Dallas Mavericks have won three games in a row, and 5 of their last 6. They will continue to face a fairly soft schedule for the remainder of the home stand. Tuesday, the Mavs rudely hosted the Lakers, resulting in a shellacking similar to the one doled out January 22nd(also in Texas). But who cares when this happened: DIRK. 30,000. Dirk Nowitzki’s approach of 30,000 career points — a monumental achievement to add to the career resume of one of sport’s most unique superstars. You knew it was going to happen at home, with 20 points and two...

Dirk Nowitzki reaches 30,000 career points; joins rarefied group of players

The Tall Baller from the G has achieved yet another amazing milestone in his career. Abdul-Jabbar. Malone. Bryant. Jordan. Chamberlain. And now, Dirk Nowitzki. This evening, Dirk joined the 30,000 point club, reaching the milestone easily, a minute into the second quarter against the Lakers. He started the game insanely hot, hitting two early threes, three the hard way, and a couple more to easily get to 14 before his first break in the first quarter. He finished the first quarter with 18(!) points. 30,000 came on a fadeaway after backing a guy down in the post. Of course it did....

A timeline of Dirk Nowitzki reaching 30,000 points

We take you back to the realms of yesteryear and get you caught up on how this guy got to this point. Think back to when you first watched Dirk Nowitzki. Maybe it was his introductory press conference where he showed up to Dallas with a bowl cut and an earring, or perhaps it was the first time you saw him swish a one-legged fade on the American Airlines Center hardwood. No matter when you first saw Dirk or how, we’ve all traveled on this journey, watching this 7-foot freak of nature become one of the most dominant scorers in NBA history. And here we are, on the eve of history again. Dirk...

Pelicans suffer more disappointment in new Davis-Cousins era, lose to Mavericks, 96-83

Turnovers and poor marksmanship to blame again Doesn’t it seem like it was just yesterday that basketball fans were fired up at the prospect of watching winning basketball in New Orleans? You bet, but there was a quiet worry in the back of everyone’s mind that Alvin Gentry might not be able to maximize this roster. Well, the Pelicans head coach did nothing to alleviate those fears Saturday night. New Orleans grinded their way to a 96-83 loss to the less talented yet well coached Dallas Mavericks. The Pelicans actually started hot, leading 30-24 after the 1st quarter, but Rick Carisle...
