Inside Report: Suns-Mavericks preview — Mavs bid for season sweep of Suns, keeping No. 3 in West
Although the Phoenix Suns are eliminated from playoff contention, they could still have a hand in deciding where the Mavericks end up in the postseason picture.

Phoenix Suns Face Predictably-Struggling Mavs In Game With Seeding Implications - Bright Side Of The Sun
While the Suns face an uncertain future, one thing seems sure: the 13th pick in the upcoming NBA draft (less than 1% chance to win the lottery). Utah is in the catbird seat for the 12th pick, holding a 2 game lead over the Suns (1 fewer win, plus the tiebreak by losing the season series), while Houston has the 14th pick locked in with a 3-game lead of their own. Considering there's only 2 or 3 games left for each team, the suspense is over. The Dallas Mavericks, on the other hand, could finish anywhere from 2-4 in the conference standings

Where will Mavs fit Corey Brewer? - Dallas Mavericks Blog - ESPN Dallas
Don't get used to seeing Corey Brewer in the starting lineup. They lanky, 6-foot-9 small forward got his first start of his Dallas Mavericks career Friday -- at shooting guard -- and did not disappoint. He played alongside the ever-struggling Rodrigue Beaubois in Jason Kidd's absence and put up a career-best type of stat line: 20 points, six rebounds, four assists, four steals, and, well, four turnovers, too.

Recap: Dallas Mavericks 107, Los Angeles Clippers 96 | The Two Man Game
Wins against the Clippers may be all but assumed, but don’t take this one for granted; Dallas needed a W pretty badly for both the sake of their collective psyche and their place in the standings, and bounced back from a poor defensive performance in the first quarter to win this one outright.
