The Friday Links

Well, the Mavs lost to Detroit last night.  Fortunately it was just a preseason game, but don't tell that to Detroit.  They not only played their starters against the Mavs third string for most of the 4th quarter, and threw streamers after the game, but they don't care who they came back against.

"We played the Dallas Mavericks," he said. "Whoever they put into the game, that's who we played."

Anyway, I'm glad Carlisle resisted any temptation to put the starters back in and try to hold on for the win.

This  Day in Mavs History

1999 Steve Nash left the Detroit preseason game midway through the 2nd
quarter with a sprained right ankle. He missed the rest of
preseason due to the injury.
