The Mavs missed eight of their final nine shots, were outscored 14-4 down the stretch, wasted a manly Dirk effort – his first 20/20 game in almost 10 years – and lost 95-90 to the Bucks.
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.
You can keep blaming Tony Romo and crying that the Cowboys will never win with him as quarterback, and I’ll just keep getting people like Troy Aikman and Warren Moon and Brian Billick and Babe Laufenberg to speak the contrary.

Vince Carter scored 26 points to pass Larry Bird on the NBA’s career scoring list, and the Mavericks grabbed a 123-100 win against the Kings on Wednesday night.
Ballsy – if not real brainy – of the Mavs to commit to not shaving until they reach .500. But at 21-28, I fear Dirk Nowitzki might look more ZZ Top than NBA by April.
O.J. Mayo scored 28 points, Vince Carter hit a big jumper in the final minute and the Mavericks beat the Blazers 105-99 for coach Rick Carlisle’s 500th career victory.

Dallas Mavericks center Chris Kaman did not play against the Portland Trail Blazers on Tuesday night because of a concussion.
LaMarcus Aldridge’s turnaround jumper fell as time ran out, and the Trail Blazers came back from a 21-point third-quarter deficit to beat the Mavericks 106-104.
Shawn Marion scored 18 points in his 1,000th game, Dirk Nowitzki also had 18 while passing Allen Iverson on the career scoring list and the Dallas Mavericks beat the Phoenix Suns 110-95 Sunday night.
