O.J. Mayo made an incredible drive down the base line to tie the game with the Clippers and 0.6 seconds left. It seemed like the game was all wrapped up and Dallas would live to fight five more minutes and close within one game of the eighth spot in the Playoffs. Then Matt Barnes lobbed a Hail Mary baseball pass to Blake Griffin, in the paint one-on-one with Dirk Nowitzki. Griffin was able to get the ball turn around and flip a shot seemingly over his head into the basket for the win. Except it wasn't for the win. Dirk Nowitzki sold a push and the refs bought it. Was it an offensive foul on Blake Griffin? You be the judge: Griffin said after the game he did not think he pushed off that much. And certainly some pushing and jockeying is expected in a late-game play like this one. Is it worth calling though this late in the game? Undoubtedly, flopping has been a major issue facing the NBA. The league has tried to take steps to combat it by warning and fining ...

Dick Stockton thinks a bricked shot went in

During Tuesday's Mavericks-Clippers game, veteran announcer Dick Stockton had a pretty egregious announcing flub that he covered up pretty quickly. In the third quarter, Mike James of the Mavericks hoisted up a three that bounced off the front of the rim and into the arms of Blake Griffin. Stockton called the shot like it was a made three, and it took a second for him to realize...

Chris Paul’s wife provided this picture on her Instagram of just a portion of his shoe stock which is so huge that they needed an entire bedroom to make all those Jordans fit. I think Paul has more shoes right now than I’ve had in my entire life.

Lamar Odom says he would apologize to Mark Cuban, feels no guilt for bad season

Lamar Odom had the worst season of his career with the Dallas Mavericks last year. When the Mavericks acquired the 12-year veteran, they thought they would be getting the same type of role player the Los Angeles Lakers had during the seven years prior. That did not happen, and Odom’s only season in Dallas ended with the team paying him to not be on the roster. As you might expect...
