The Mavs started the night 4.5 games behind the Houston Rockets for the eighth seed in the Western Conference, a precarious position that could have turned a loss to the Magic into a potential season-ender.
Shawn Marion and Elton Brand scored 17 points apiece, Vince Carter again provided a spark off the bench, and the Mavericks beat the Magic 111-96 on Wednesday night.
The Mavericks entered the second half of the NBA schedule with a 17-24 record. But they exited Orlando with a 111-105 victory, a win that suggests the team is at least armed.
The Dwight Howard saga is finally about to end, according to reports. A four-team deal involving the Nuggets and 76ers will send the disgruntled Magic center to the Lakers.
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.
Howard is still speaking out saying that he wants to leave the Magic and go elsewhere. But is a move to Dallas a possibility?
Dirk Nowitzki hit a jumper with 5.9 seconds left to lead the Dallas Mavericks to a 100-98 victory over the Orlando Magic on Friday night.
Orlando seeks to avoid a sixth straight home loss to Dallas on Friday night in a matchup of teams coming off lopsided defeats.
Magic spokesman Joel Glass says the team has granted New Jersey, Dallas and the L.A. Lakers permission to talk to Dwight Howard’s agent Dan Fegan to discuss possible trades.
Dwight Howard had 23 points and 13 rebounds, and the Orlando Magic extended the NBA’s longest active winning streak to nine games with a 117-107 victory over the injury-depleted Dallas Mavericks on Saturday night.
Caron Butler scored 20 points, Dirk Nowitzki had 17 and the Dallas Mavericks became the latest team to topple the reconstructed Orlando Magic in a 105-99 victory Tuesday night.
