Terry scored eight in his first game in Dallas since leaving for Boston in free agency. He was the latest key piece the Mavericks decided not to keep since beating Miami in the 2011 NBA finals.

Paul Pierce and Brandon Bass led Boston with 16 points apiece, and Bass added 11 rebounds. The Mavericks kept their lead near the halftime margin of 11 until early in the fourth quarter, when Jordan Crawford hit a tough 3-pointer from the corner, then picked up a steal from Mike James near midcourt and made a reverse layup with Nowitzki in pursuit to p...

 Boston Celtics (36-31) vs. Dallas Mavericks (32-36) 8:30 p.m. In some ways, Jason Terry has fit right in with Boston.

Memphis dominated this game on all levels tonight: rebounding, scoring in the paint, second-chance points, you get the picture. Boston goes 0-3 on...

Anyway, if they attempt to follow these five things they might...
