Some game observations.
- Devin Harris and J.J Barea were playing one-on-one during the pregame shootaround. Devin didn't take a single layup. He instead shot threes and crazy fadeaway jumpers -- well defended ones. He made about 8/10. It's there...
- The Mavs dancers had a competition to see who could throw a t-shirt the farthest into the stands. Reader favorite Mallory was the winner.
- Josh Howard rolled his ankle by landing on another foot and it's not a coincidence it keeps happening to him. I know Avery is mad about it, but Howard is not being targeted; he just lands with his feet forward. Howard is flying with the team to Minnesota but his status for tomorrow's game is unknown.
- If Dirk had cared at all he easily could have had 40. He didn't even take a shot in the 4th quarter; his FGA was just a missed tip-in.
|Dirk Nowitzki||9||8.5||Missed one jumpshot the whole game|
|Jason Terry||9||7.3||A quite 21 because it came on just 12 attempts.|
|Josh Howard||8||7.9||Stop doing that!|
|DeSagana Diop||5||6.1||More fouls than rebounds is bad.|
|Jerry Stackhouse||10||6.7||The fantastic shooting and beautiful passes make me forget he couldn't guard Joe Johnson at all.|
|Devin Harris||7||7.2||Surprised to see his line in the box score. Was defintily active and did well getting in the paint.|
|Erick Dampier||7||6.8||One of those nothing awful nothing great OK games|
|Austin Croshere||6||5.9||He looks to box someone out every time a shot goes up. His 12.9 BER/48 is better than Dirk Marion Mourning...|
|Pops Mensah-Bonsu||6||5.5||Congrats on your first NBA points and the crowd loved the dunk|
|Jose Barea||6||5.5||He came in early but Howard handled the ball more at point than Barea.|
|Moe Ager||6||5.5||Nice steal and his missed shot was on an aggressive slash to basket|
