By Art Garcia, The Sports Xchange DALLAS -- The Mavericks and Timberwolves both have losing records, but they're going in opposite directions. Dallas has won three straight after Monday night's 113-98 pasting at American Airlines Center that sent Minnesota to its fourth loss in a row. Elton Brand scored a season-high 20 points off the bench for the Mavericks, who improved to 16-23 and are in the midst of their longest winning streak since early December. The Dallas backcourt of O.J. Mayo and Darren Collison combined for 43 points. "Elton played great," Mavericks coach Rick Carlisle said. "He's shooting well and he's rebounding well. He's giving us a physical presence from the inside and that's what we need from him." The Mavericks never trailed and broke the game open in the third quarter, outscoring the Wolves 36-25.

Cuban said before Saturday night's game against Memphis that he wanted to be clear with Nowitzki that he was committed "through thick and thin" to getting the team back in contention.

According to the boss, Dirk isn't going anywhere

(Photo Credit: The Associated Press) With Dirk fully back from his knee injury, and Elton Brand looking rejuvenated, we’ve been graced with some Mavericks basketball of old over the past three games. Not to mention, Darren Collison and O.J. Mayo, two of the streakiest players in the NBA, have been tearing it up. My only question, [...]
Mavs Add Elton Brand
Darren Collison now runs the floor where J.J. Barea was the spark that helped rally the Dallas Mavericks to their first championship two seasons ago.

Whoop ‘Em Mavericks Style
Over the weekend, Dallas Mavericks forward Dirk Nowitzki was doing his best to check out a review near the end of the Mavericks/Kings game at Sleep Train Arena.As Dirk attempted to get a better look at the review, a Kings security guard did his best to block of the path of Dirk from getting a closer look:
Dirk Nowitzki has been the Dallas Mavericks' preeminent scorer through nearly all of his 15 seasons, but he hasn't had to carry the load during one of the team's longest win streaks of 2012-13.
Looking for another balanced effort, Dallas will seek a season-high fourth consecutive victory Wednesday night while trying to add to its recent dominance over the struggling...
