Dallas Mavericks point guard Rajon Rondo will miss at least three games after breaking the orbital bone of his left eye and fracturing his nose.
With the NBA season right around the corner, let’s break down which five teams are the worst.
Dallas could use Nelson as part of a rotation at the point, but as much as the Mavs like Harris off the bench, Nelson could end up as a starter should he choose to sign in Dallas.
Monta Ellis scored 21 points, Dirk Nowitzki added 15 points, and the Mavericks beat Orlando 107-88 on Monday night, extending the Magic’s skid to eight games.
Victor Oladipo had 12 points and fellow rookie Manny Harris scored all nine of his points in the fourth quarter to help the Magic to a 102-94 preseason win over the Mavs on Monday.
The 2013 NBA Draft kicks off tomorrow and here is our list of potential picks, what each teams weaknesses are and what voids need to be filled.
The Cleveland Cavaliers claimed the No. 1 overall pick at the 2013 NBA Draft Lottery on Tuesday night.
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.
