Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban took to Twitter to voice his displeasure with the officiating following the Mavs’ 99-96 loss to the New Orleans Hornets on Saturday night at American Airlines Center.

“It’s going to be tough now,” Nowitzki said after the Mavs’ home overtime loss to the Western Conference cellar-dwelling New Orleans Hornets. “I always liked to think you don’t want to build your franchise on hope.
“We hoped for Deron last year. We hoped for Dwight. Why would he leave the Lakers? To me, it makes no sense. He’s in a great situation. Why would CP3...
