Oh why not.
WHAT: A chance to catch up to the 8 seed...
WHERE: American Airlines Center, Dallas, TX
WHEN: 8:30pm CT
THE STORY: Oh, nationally televised games. You make us so nervous. The Mavericks are watching the teams above them in the standings collapse as the season wears on, and they're finding themselves gaining momentum at the "right" time. But there are those among the Mavs faithful who would rather the team stay out of the playoffs and get themselves a good pick. There's no right answer, but we're all fans and we all just want Dirk to be happy. We can agree on that, right? The Clippers are still scary as hell to play when they get their transition game going, so Dallas will have to buckle down to avoid embarrassment and posterization.
