NBA: Preseason-Dallas Mavericks at Orlando Magic Jeff Griffith-USA TODAY Sports

On today’s episode, Nick and Isaac discuss Seth Curry's injury, the Mavs last few games, and the one play from the Orlando game that should encourage Mavs fans.

After every player that could be considered a veteran ducked the trip to Orlando (including Coach Carlisle), there wasn’t much to glean from the 89-112 loss to the Magic. However, there was one play late in the second quarter that had a little magic of it’s own.

After an attempted play broke down, Jeff Withey found himself with the ball on the right wing with a defender on him. As the shot clock wound down he handed the ball off to his (our) point guard which he fumbled briefly. Once Dennis Smith Jr. regained control he realized how much time he had to get a shot off. Then he went to work. Crossover. Pump. Fadeaway three. Shot Clock Expires. Buckets.
