PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) -- Those beards aren't coming off yet.
Chris Kaman scored a season-high 26 points and the unshaven Dallas Mavericks boosted their faint playoff hopes with a 96-91 victory over the slumping Portland Trail Blazers on Sunday night.
Kaman added 11 rebounds for the Mavericks, who were 2 games back of Utah for the eighth and final spot in the Western Conference, and two games behind the Lakers. Dallas (38-39) has just five games left, but four of those are at home.
Led by veteran Dirk Nowitzki, a handful of the Mavs have been growing out their beards since early February, vowing not to shave until they reach .500 and make the playoffs. Kaman is among them.
"I'm not sure how excited everyone else is about it because I don't think they like how it looks," he said. "But I'm not really thinking about it because it's important for us to finish the season on a good note and we have the next five games to do that."

The Portland Trailblazers are out of the playoffs. That did not stop Will Barton from having a career night against the Dallas Mavericks on Sunday.

Coach Rick Carlisle playfully seemed prepared to cite HIPAA laws in refusing to detail an injury sustained by Dirk Nowitzki in Sunday's 96-91 win at Portland. 'There are laws against me talking about it to you bleepers,' Rick told the media. But Dirk himself revealed he's got an ankle injury but pledged to 'be fine' for the Mavs' next game.
With the Dallas Mavericks season hanging in the balance, they only have 6 games left to try and make it to the playoffs for a 13 consecutive year, but without winning the majority of their games left and getting some help from the Lakers and Jazz ahead of them in the standings, their chances are very slim in getting over that hump, but don’t completely count them out yet.

“Whew!”; I’ll bet that’s what a lot of the Dallas Mavericks organization is saying today. A quote by Branden Wright in reference to the fact that Portland had lost 7 of it last games and would be throwing everything at Dallas including the kitchen sink and they did and Dallas barely escaped with a victory.
No matter what the Blazers have done against any other team, they...
