Randy Galloway, Art Garcia, and Eddie Sefko all have articles about returning to Miami. They've all got the same premise - the NBA Finals really sucked, but it looks like it made the team better. Sefko's and Garcia's article have a lot of the same good quotes.
JJT writes about the Mavs new attitude.
The Mavs approach each game with a single-minded focus and determination to win that comes from gagging - there's no other way to say it - last summer in the NBA Finals, when they blew a 2-0 lead against Miami.
And Garcia also has a good article which he deems his second quarter report.
Down in the D-League: It was a Mavs showcase in North Dakota last night. Mensah-Bonsu had 18 points and 21 rebounds, obviously leading the team in that category again. He also continued his shooting efficiency, going 7 for 9.
Barea, who started and played 44 minutes, led the team in points with 24. He also contributed five rebounds and nine assists.
