A quick roundup before today's noon tipoff.
Eddie Sefko says that even with a loss, this road trip would be a success.
With a 2-1 record on this, the longest road trip of the season, they go to Boston knowing they will return home Sunday night no worse than 2-2.
And a win would mean a 3-1 trip and would show a national audience the Mavericks are not to be overlooked in the NBA's big picture.
I don't know... That one loss to Milwaukee was just sooooo awful. Another one like that, and I don't see how Dallas could head back home feeling like it was a good trip.
Dirk was glad Dallas was finally able to get a win with significant 'garbage time'.
"It was a good win for us," Nowitzki said. "We haven't had an easy win where everybody was at the bench at the end, so that was definitely good."
Hopefully the rest helps Dirk get ready for today's game -- he hates early starts.
Sefko and Hubbard both have articles comparing Boston to Dallas
"Everybody and their brother called up when Boston was struggling about trying to get Paul Pierce," Cuban said. "We offered to try and take his contract, and they said, 'You know what? He's part of our fabric, our culture.'
"Look at how things turned out for Boston."
Cuban also says he is not against a trade for contracts that run past 2010 if he feels like he can get a better player now.
