the Mavs haven't beat a team with a winning record in almost two weeks. Only the LA Lakers had a winning record of the Mavs opponents during this seven game winning streak. The last upper tier team the Mavs played was the Utah Jazz and that resulted in a 22 point loss for the Mavs. Dallas better be ready for 19-7 Phoenix, winners of nine of their last 10, tonight.
Of course, the Suns have that topped. They've played just one team with a winning record the entire month, Washington, and they lost.
Stackhouse thinks the Mavs will be ready to play an elite team.
Injury Update: Jerry Stackhouse's ankle is healing slowly - he's officially a game-time decision, but he's doubtful to play.
Dirk apparently has a bit of a cold, but you know he'll play.
Around the League: Jason Kidd was fined $20,000 for trashing the refs.
Dwyane Wade sprained his wrist last night.
And the Knicks beat Detroit in a wild triple overtime game.
