It was Star Wars Night at the American Airlines Center on Monday. Some would say that was the only redeeming quality from a game that saw two starters get injured and the Mavericks lose by double digits. Maybe Star Wars Night was to blame for all of that.

If only Admiral Ackbar could have warned the Mavericks about the game itself -- "It's a trap!" Maybe things would have worked out better.
