Every play near the basket looked like a traffic accident. There were long scoreless stretches. Shooting from outside was a dicey proposition. It was ugly for everyone but the Chicago Bulls. This was their type of game.
The time for experimenting is over. P.J. Carlesimo has to play his best guys for as long as they can go.
The Mavs failed in both long-term and short-term goals as they started Wednesday three games out of the final playoff spot in the Western Conference.
Brook Lopez scored 38 points and Deron Williams had another 31 points in his hometown visit, leading the Nets past the Mavericks 113-96 on Wednesday night.
Dirk Nowitzki and former Nets guard Vince Carter each scored 20 points, and the Dallas Mavericks avoided another late collapse by holding off Brooklyn 98-90 on Friday night.
Mark Cuban was too busy listening to “Shark Tank” pitches to make one of his own, and that just might have cost his Mavericks their shot at Deron Williams back in July.
Any new offers for Dwight Howard likely won’t be good enough to get a deal done, or they would have come sooner. But some teams will always want to talk. Like the Mavericks.
While Mavs optimists are holding out hope of landing Williams, who grew up in Dallas, executives working the phones have detected a real concern that Williams will opt to join the Nets.
ESPN reports that All-Star point guard Deron Williams has narrowed down his list to two teams when he becomes a free agent in July: the Nets or the Mavericks.
