Remember last season when Denver Nuggets head coach George Karl said that he hoped that his team would face the Dallas Mavericks when the playoffs started. Of course he was wrong because the Mavs went on a roll and wound up toppling the Miami Heat for the NBA championship.
The Mavericks have struggled in the shortened season and finally clinched a playoff berth, but they still remain...

The Dallas Mavericks clinched a playoff spot for the 12th consecutive year on Thursday night by virtue of the Houston Rocket’s loss in New Orleans to the lowly Hornets. While seeding hasn’t yet been decided, qualifying for the playoffs this season has been nothing short of a chore for the Mavs. That may be acceptable for most teams in the league, but it’s not exactly how the...
That Sean Williams? Yes, that Sean Williams. The former Boston College shot-blocking supremacist is going to be wearing green for the rest of the season. Williams was taken 17th overall in the 2007 NBA draft by the New Jersey Nets. He never panned out and he's been somewhat of a problem off of the court.
Williams played two years for the Nets in which he would consistently...
Mark Cuban comes off as an unpatriotic, unapologetic, typical money-first, damn-the-flag, ugly-American businessman. But listen closer. Deeper. Does he think the U.S. Olympic basketball team is a shambles?
"I hope so,'' the Dallas Mavericks owner told FOXSports.com.
"Maybe that'll be my next business. F--- up the Olympics.''
Here we go again with...
Vince Carter had 19 points, including eight straight for Dallas early in the fourth quarter, and the playoff-bound Mavericks finally pulled away from the young Golden State Warriors for a 104-94 victory Friday night.
Carter's personal streak ended when he had an assist on Jason Terry's breakaway 3-pointer that stretched the Dallas lead to 87-75 with 9 minutes left.
There isn’t much time for the Dallas Mavericks to get on track this regular season. The goal is obviously to find some momentum and consistency before the playoffs hit, but this season is different in Dallas as the postseason isn’t yet assured with just a few games remaining.
Can I officially state that I hate overtime games for the Dallas Mavericks? It doesn’t bode well for them and now they have two overtime games back to back and this one was a triple overtime and still didn’t get the win.
Dallas came into tonight’s game in the #6 spot while Utah was hanging by a thread and hoping for some help in a win against Dallas and losses against teams...
Marc Stein of ESPN is reporting that the Celtics are close to signing free agent center Sean Williams. Williams, who was waived by the Dallas Mavericks on March 22, is expected to be in uniform for the undermanned Celtics on Friday night in Atlanta. To make room for Williams on the roster, the Celtics have [...]
Bulls battle Mavericks clinging to best record.
Dirk Nowitzki scored 21 of his 35 points in the fourth quarter as the Dallas Mavericks rallied Wednesday night for a 117-110 victory over the Houston Rockets, whose playoff hopes took another blow.
Jason Terry put the Mavericks ahead to stay with a 3-pointer that made it 93-92 with 7:37 left.
By the time Nowitzki completed a three-point play 3 1/2 minutes later, the Mavericks led...
Now that the Denver Nuggets are in the playoffs for the ninth consecutive season, there will be no letting up for the final three games of the regular season.
Coach George Karl wants his young team to gain some momentum, and there's still a chance to pass Dallas for the No. 6 spot in the Western Conference.
Ty Lawson went 5 of 5 on three-pointers and had 29 points and 10 assists...
