Now that’s Dallas Mavericks Basketball at it’s best! The Mavs used their momentum from the 2 previous wins at Phoenix and Houston to their carry-over into tonight’s game and it paid off. O J Mayo led the Mavs with 19 points by shooting 6 of 9 from the field and connecting on 3 of his 4 three point attempts, but it wasn’t just Mayo tonight, it was a collective effort by five other Maverick players who had double-digit scoring besides Mayo.
Chris Kaman had 18 points on 9 of 13 from the field, Darren Collison added 15 points of his own on shooting 7 of 9 from the field, as well as 3 who had 11 points a piece which included Dahntay Jones, Derek Fisher and Jae Crowder. Fisher also racked up 6 assists for the night, not bad for a team still trying to find their own.
Some people felt that Dallas would have their hands full with the Sacramento Kings, after all they had just won 3 games in a row and they rely heavily on DeMarcus Cousins for his tenacity on the court, especially around the b...

Commenting on an incident during the Kings-Mavericks game when DeMarcus Cousins hit him in the groin, O.J. Mayo said, "Man, that guy has mental issues."
The Mavericks have won three straight games, which is all anybody seems to be talking about as they prepare to take on the Celtics on Wednesday. That streak would be a sign of a team on a roll, if not for the four losses in five games that preceded the current streak or the fact that they have the same number of three-game losing streaks — two — as three-game winning streaks...
With 3:25 left in the first half of Dallas Mavericks’ 119-96 blowout win over the Sacramento Kings, Mavs guard OJ Mayo appeared to be the recipient of a closed-fist punch to the groin from DeMarcus Cousins. The two exchanged words and were both handed the standard NBA cop-out double-technical foul. When asked about the altercation after the game, Mayo summed up exactly how everyone...
Mayo's entire career has been turned around by his moving to Dallas
Drafted third overall in the 2008 NBA Draft by the Minnesota Timberwolves and traded on draft night to Memphis out of USC, O.J. Mayo's future career in the NBA seemed to be headed in a direction like that of other shooting guards with a similar skill set to his, such as Kobe Bryant, Dwyane Wade, or...
DALLAS (AP) -- O.J. Mayo scored 19 points and the Dallas Mavericks took control with 31-3 run in the first half to win their 17th straight regular-season home game against Sacramento with a 119-96 victory over the Kings on Monday night.
Chris Kaman, playing on a sprained left ankle he suffered last week, scored 16 of his 18 points in the first half for Dallas.
You can't go too long without hearing another complaint about Sacramento Kings forward DeMarcus Cousins. The latest one comes courtesy of Dallas Mavericks guard O.J. Mayo who called out Cousins for punching him in the groin during their game on Monday. The incident was caught on tape and confirmed.Just minutes later, the two were called for a double-technical foul after mixing...
DALLAS -- The Dallas Mavericks rode a smothering second quarter to an easy 119-96 victory Monday night over the Sacramento Kings at American Airlines Center. The Mavericks (11-10) won their third in a row to inch over .500 for the first time since Nov. 21. The Kings (7-13) had their three-game winning streak snapped. They lost their 17th consecutive regular-season game in Dallas...
Despite the fact that they’ve been playing without their star forward, Dirk Nowitzki, the Dallas Mavericks are finally enjoying a little success with a nice little 3-game winning streak that has pushed Mark Cuban’s underachievers above .500 for the first time since Nov. 21. And to make that good news even better, it seems that Nowitzki will be back… eventually. Bah, who needs...
Dallas Mavericks guard OJ Mayo was rumored to be a locker room headache when he was with the Grizzlies. So it seems rather fitting that he would have advice for Kings big man DeMarcus Cousins. During Monday night’s match up between the Mavs and Kings, Mayo was called for a technical after confronting Cousins because [...]
Boston Celtics 117, Dallas Mavericks 115 (2 OT) It took two overtimes to do it, but the Celtics finally put away the Mavericks Wednesday night, 117-115, to win their fourth straight home game and improve to 12-9 on the season. Perhaps SB Nation writer Paul Flannery said it best with his tweet in the fourth [...]
