Dallas Mavericks 2015-2016 News and Updates
8/11/15 - After finishing a lousy fourth in the Southwest Division last season, most fans could agree that the Dallas Mavericks have had better years. Although the Mavs still finished with a decent 50-32 record, it just wasn’t enough to match up to the other talent in the division. With the release of the new NBA schedule this week, now the Mavericks and their fans will have another season to look forward to as they attempt to reclaim the championship title they won in 2011. They’ll have a tough start on the road, facing the Phoenix Suns and the Los Angeles Clippers on back-to-back nights. Then, they’ll head back to Dallas for their home opener against the Toronto Raptors on Tuesday, November 3. Tickets are available for just $34.
4/27/15 - The 2015 season is officially over for the Dallas Mavericks. They put up a good fight, but the Houston Rockets proved to be too much. They lost in their away games, but still managed to rack up 108 and 99 points respectively. They did even better when the Mavericks had the chance to play on their own court, but it still wasn't enough. First they got an incredible 128 points, only to fall just short to the Rockets' 130. Then they showed that they were not down and out yet, by rallying and winning the next game, on April 26th, by 12 points. At that point, Dallas needed to win every remaining game to advance, but they just couldn't pull it off. At least they got one last strong win before the season ended.
4/21/15 - The Dallas Mavericks are off to a rocky start to the playoffs. Taking on the number two team, the Houston Rockets, is proving to be trouble. First, the Mavericks lost 108-118 on April 18th. Then the Rockets earned another victory on April 21st with 99-111. The Mavericks are not out yet, next meeting on their own court, but they will need to earn four wins against Houston before losing two more times. It may seem like a long shot, but keep in mind that Dallas has been playing at a disadvantage up until this point. Fans are holding out hope and preparing to come out to support the Mavericks on April 24th for the third game of the first round. Tickets are still available starting at $52.
4/13/15 - The Dallas Mavericks were having a hard time on the court last week, but they are doing much better now. After securing three consecutive victories, they only suffered a single loss against the Utah Jazz. At this point, the Mavericks are locked into the number seven spot for the Western Conference regardless of how they do in their final game on April 15th. This match might, however, serve as one last opportunity to practice against a playoff team without being penalized for losing. Once the postseason begins, Dallas will either be playing the San Antonio Spurs or the Houston Rockets, depending on how those two teams do in their final games. Be sure to catch the Mavericks' match against the Portland Trail Blazers; it may just set their tone for the entire playoffs.
4/6/15 - The Dallas Mavericks continue to have bad luck as the season winds down. They had to take on the two top teams in their conference, the Golden State Warriors and the Houston Rockets, in consecutive matches, and the Mavericks were unable to edge out a victory in either game. There is a bright spot, however. Before these rough matches, Dallas were on fire when they played the Oklahoma City Thunder, scoring an amazing 135 points. Additionally, even though they lost, the Mavericks played much better against the Warriors and the Rockets than they have recently, even in games they won. There is one more home game in this series, and then there will only be one remaining home game for the regular season on April 15th.
3/30/15 - The Dallas Mavericks had a lot of trouble this last week. They did not play very many games, and it looks like they may be a little rusty because of it. They lost both of the matches they played. They even took a very hard loss by 18 points when they played the San Antonio Spurs, whom the Mavericks dominated a mere three days beforehand. If the Mavericks have any chance of getting back into competitive shape before the playoffs begin, it will be in their upcoming series of home games, which includes three of their last four matches on their own court. If you want to catch them live before the season ends, this is likely your last chance. The first game, against the Houston Rockets, will be on April 2nd and tickets start at $36.
3/23/15 - After their three-game winning streak, the Dallas Mavericks took a couple losses. Their play continues to be on-and-off. While they have managed to secure a spot in the playoff, they trail near the back end. The Mavericks need to get their energy back before the postseason starts. Luckily, they just got a strong 94-101 victory against the San Antonio Spurs and Dallas will be playing the Spurs again immediately. That promises to be a great opportunity for the Mavericks, but if that is not enough, they have three consecutive home games starting on April 2nd against the Houston Rockets. That series include three of the Mavericks' remaining four home games, so be sure to catch them in action while you still can. Their final home game will be on April 15th against the Atlanta Hawks.
3/16/15 - The Dallas Mavericks had been losing more games than fans hoped they would, but it looks like they might be past their slump. They have now won two games in a row, a feat they have not done in more than a month. When their series of home games started, everyone was hopeful they would turn their luck around. They started out slow, taking a rough 127-94 loss from the Cleveland Cavaliers, but they have picked up since then, beating the Los Angeles Clippers 99-129 and the Oklahoma City Thunder 115-119. You have two more chances to see the Mavericks before they hit the road again: on March 18th and 20th. Tickets for the first game, in which Dallas will play the Orlando Magic, start at $24.
3/9/15 - After going 2-1 on a recent Western Conference road trip, the Dallas Mavericks are hoping to rebuild some confidence during their upcoming five-game home stand. Dallas came up short against two of the West’s best, including the Portland Trail Blazers and Golden State Warriors, but did come away with a win in Los Angeles versus the Lakers to conclude the trip. With only two games on the schedule this week, the Mavs can look forward to ample rest as they get set for the stretch run heading into the playoffs. Friday night, Chris Paul and the Los Angeles Clippers will come to town for a showdown of teams vying for home court advantage in the postseason. Get in the game with tickets starting at $41!
3/2/15 - Rajon Rondo returned from a one-game suspension for the Dallas Mavericks on Saturday, but it wasn’t enough to fill the void brought on by the absence of starting center Tyson Chandler. The Mavs lost their second game in a row, 104-94 to the Brooklyn Nets—a team only averaging 96 points per game, but who saw scoring opportunities aplenty with Dallas short their rim protector. The Mavericks were overpowered by the hot-shooting Atlanta Hawks on Wednesday, capping a 7-5 month of February. Dirk Nowitzki and his squad will open March with crucial games versus the New Orleans Pelicans, Portland Trail Blazers, and Golden State Warriors, as they look to cement their place in the Western Conference playoff picture. Tickets for Mavs versus Blazers in Portland are still available starting at $21!
2/23/15 - Amar’e Stoudemire dazzled in his debut for the Dallas Mavericks in Sunday’s game against the Charlotte Hornets. He scored 14 points and had three rebounds in just 11 minutes of play, giving the Mavericks a win with a 92-81 final score. The Mavs sit in a good place to make the play-offs, in fourth place in the Western Division, but they hope to climb higher. If they keep winning, they might make that happen. They host the Brooklyn Nets on Saturday (2/28) at the American Airlines Center. Tickets are available from Razorgator starting at $26. Make your weekend more exciting with a great game of basketball. The Mavs host the New Orleans Pelicans on Monday (3/2). You can get your tickets for this game for only $8 and up.
2/17/15 - According to ESPN, the Dallas Mavericks are gaining a new player for the final games of their season. Amar'e Stoudemire of the New York Knicks is waiting for the waiver deadline to pass to make it official, but he has committed himself to the Mavs, hoping to get into the playoffs. You’ll have the first opportunity to see him play on home court at the American Airlines Center on Friday (2/20) when the Mavericks host the Houston Rockets. Seats are going fast, but Razorgator still has tickets starting at $53. End your weekend on a high note by joining the Mavericks on Sunday (2/22) when the Charlotte Hornets come to town. Tickets are only $23, but they’re being grabbed up quickly by fans who love their basketball.
2/10/15 - Fans of the Dallas Mavericks will want to get your tickets to the next home game against the Houston Rockets on Friday (2/20). Tickets start at $52 from Razorgator. The Mavericks are going into the break at third in the Southwest Division. There’s talk of bringing back Bernard James back from China, to help take up some of the slack from losing Center Tyson Chandler, who just suffered an ankle injury. It’s been reported that the Mavericks may also grab Amar'e Stoudemire from the Knicks, but there are a lot of pieces that still have to fall into place. Come out to the American Airlines Center and cheer on the home team. Enjoy a night of fast-paced basketball and show your support to the Mavericks.
2/2/15 - With a 33-17 record, the Dallas Mavericks sit in third place in the Southwest Division. They’re on a three-game winning streak, since they beat the Miami Heat on January 30. The Mavericks come back to the American Airlines Center on Saturday (2/7) to host the Portland Trail Blazers in the first of three home games. Tickets start at $34 for the Trail Blazers game. The next Monday (2/9), the Los Angeles Clippers come to town. Dallas loves their hometown basketball team, so don’t wait to get tickets from Razorgator. The Mavericks will miss their point guard Rajon Rondo who was injured in their game against the Orlando Magic. He has an orbital fracture of his left eye and could be out for an extended period of time.
1/26/15 - A pair of tough losses have put the Dallas Mavericks in sixth place overall in the Western Conference, as the trio of Texas teams continue to battle for dominance in the Southwest Division. After falling at home to the Chicago Bulls on Friday night, the Mavs lost a nail-biter in New Orleans, as the Pelicans came away with a 109-106 victory. Anthony Davis paced his team with 28 points and 10 rebounds, while Monte Ellis led Dallas with 36 points in 35 minutes of action. The Mavericks shot 48 percent from the floor as a team, but allowed New Orleans to shoot over 50 percent—just enough to swing a close game in the home team’s favor. Dallas looks to get back on track versus division rivals this week, including an away game versus Houston on Wednesday night. Limited seats are still available from $48, so act now!
1/19/15 - The Dallas Mavericks found their game again and racked up two wins in the last few days against the Denver Nuggets and Memphis Grizzlies. On Friday (1/23), the Mavericks host one of the top teams in the NBA, the Chicago Bulls. Get your tickets to this game at the American Airlines Center for just $57 and up. The following Tuesday, the Mavericks host the Memphis Grizzlies. The Grizzlies are in first in the Southwest Division. Beating them would give the Mavericks a shot at first place in the Division. The top teams in this group are only separated by a one loss. It’s going to be showdown to the playoffs as each team tries to gain an upper hand in the latter half of the season.
1/12/15 - An uncharacteristic pair of losses put an abrupt halt to the Dallas Mavericks’ six-game win streak, as they fell by a combined 33 points to the Detroit Pistons and Los Angeles Clippers last week. The losses dropped the Mavericks into fifth place in the Western Conference, where four of the top eight are separated by only two games. Rebounding and poor three-point shooting have been two culprits in the Mavs’ recent losses, two areas they will need to shore up as they begin a five-game swing versus opponents out West. After facing off with the Sacramento Kings, the Mavs will take on the Denver Nuggets in a home-and-home series to close out the week, Wednesday night in Denver (tickets from just $12!) and then at home at the American Airlines Center on Friday, with tickets available from $26.
1/5/15 - The Dallas Mavericks offense is clicking on all cylinders, Rajon Rondo has proven to be a perfect fit at point guard, and Dirk Nowitzki recently moved into seventh place on the NBA all-time scoring list, surpassing the great Moses Malone—life is good for MFFL Nation! Winners of six straight, Dallas is now only percentage points behind Memphis for third place in the ultra-competitive Western Conference, as Houston, San Antonio, and the L.A. Clippers have all gone tepid over their last ten games. The Mavs will be on the road for most of January, opening a three-game swing on Saturday versus Blake Griffin and the Los Angeles Clippers. Great seats are still available from Razorgator starting at just $18, but they’re going quickly so don’t delay!
12/30/14 - Following a pair of tough losses, the Dallas Mavericks have resumed their winning ways against a pair of Western Conference foes. After knocking off the Los Angeles Lakers on Friday night, Dallas came from behind to defeat the Oklahoma City Thunder on Sunday, 112-107. Dirk Nowitzki tied a season-high with 30 points in just 29 minutes of play, and Rajon Rondo added 15 to go with seven assists and six rebounds at the point guard position. The win improved the Mavs’ record to 10-7 versus the West, and 22-10 overall, as they try to fight their way into the top four of a conference stacked with talented teams. Dallas will host John Wall and the Washington Wizards in their last game of 2014, and a limited number of tickets are still available from Razorgator starting at $60.
12/23/14 - Mark Cuban wanted to vault his team back into the title conversation when he traded for Rajon Rondo, and so far, it would seem to be a wise gamble. Looking little like a player who’s been with his teammates for less than a week, Rondo has led the Mavs in assists in each of his first two games, even prompting veteran all-star Dirk Nowitzki to comment that the newly-acquired point guard seems to “know some of the plays better than our own (existing) players”. It still wasn’t enough to top the red-hot Atlanta Hawks, who claimed a rare victory in Dallas on Monday, 105-102. The Mavericks can get back on track Tuesday night, as they face the Phoenix Suns on the road. Limited seats are still available through Razorgator starting at $52, so act fast!
12/15/14 - The American Airlines Center will be buzzing over the holiday with lots of activity from the Dallas Mavericks. Starting on Monday, December 22, the Mavericks host the Atlanta Hawks. The next home game is on the 26th against the Los Angeles Lakers. The piece de resistance of the week is Saturday’s game against their fierce rival, the Oklahoma City Thunder. Show your Dallas spirit and come out to these games to cheer them on. You can still get tickets for all of these great matchups. Bring your whole family while the kids are out of school and enjoy the camaraderie on the court. The Mavericks have an 18-8 record, placing them in 3rd in the Southwest Division. Make plans now to come out and watch them play.
12/8/14 - The Dallas Mavericks look to regroup at home after a tough loss versus division rival Memphis on Tuesday, falling by a score of 114-105. The Mavs led Memphis at halftime, but a 36-point third quarter by the Grizzlies turned the tide, and Dallas never got closer than two points despite a late rally led by J.J. Barea. Newly-acquired forward Chandler Parsons poured in 30 points for the Mavericks on 10-18 shooting, and Barea added 17 in just 20 minutes off the bench, but it wasn’t enough to overcome a combined 69 points from Memphis’ big three of Zach Randolph, Marc Gasol, and Mike Conley. Dallas will have an opportunity to get back on the winning track on Wednesday night at home versus Anthony Davis and the New Orleans Pelicans, and Razorgator is still offering seats starting at just $9!
12/2/14 - The Dallas Mavericks continue their winning streak against the Philadelphia 76ers. This is in the wake of their six-game winning streak that ended last week. All in all, Dallas has been having an excellent season and their 110-103 win on Saturday is just one more step toward the number one spot. Surprisingly, despite their impressive win/loss, the Mavericks are still fourth for their division. However, the second and third teams are tied at 13-4, just one loss less than Dallas. It will be a small feat to overcome them, but then Dallas will have to take on the monster Memphis Grizzlies with their 15-2 rate. The Mavericks will next be taking on the Chicago Bulls who are sitting at 11-6. That will definitely be a close game.
11/25/14 - Sadly, the Dallas Mavericks had their first loss in two weeks on Saturday. The Houston Rockets were able to just barely clinch a victory by just 3 points and ended the Mavericks’ six-game winning streak. Even though they were tied in two separate quarters, the Rockets were able to score nearly ten more points than Dallas in the second quarter. The Mavericks played an impressive final quarter, closing the gap significantly, but they ultimately fell just slightly short with the final score resting at 92-95: not a particularly high scoring game at all. The Dallas Mavericks are sitting at 10-4, which is one of the best ratios in the season, but, nevertheless, is still third for the Southwest Division, having just one more loss than their opponents in this last game.
11/17/14 - Saturday’s game marked the Dallas Mavericks’ third win in a row. The final score of 117-131, left Dallas far ahead of the Minnesota Timberwolves (2-7). In fact, the Mavericks scored better in both of the first two quarters and tied in the third at 38. Bringing the Dallas Mavericks to 7-3, this game marks their second three game slide of the season. They certainly are looking good, but they will need to fight hard to overcome the Washington Wizards, who is one of the only teams in the league with a better win-loss ratio than Dallas, in their upcoming game on the 19th. Then it is back home to face off against the Los Angeles Lakers on Friday the 21st. Tickets start as low as $24.
11/11/14 - The Dallas Mavericks unfortunately lost to the Miami Heat on Sunday at 105-96. This brings Dallas to 4-3. It was a close game, but Miami’s new No. 3, Luol Deng, is apparently fitting right in after scoring a season high 30 points. The Mavericks will be looking to pull out a victory against the Sacramento Kings (5-2) on Dallas’ home court on Tuesday. Dallas had a slick three win slide last week, but since then has been on and off. Following the game on Tuesday, the Mavericks will be playing the Philadelphia 76ers, who have 0-7, on Thursday. There’s plenty of opportunity for Dallas to get some nice wins coming up, so be sure to get those tickets early. Both game still have tickets available and both are starting at $63.
11/4/14 - The Dallas Mavericks added another win to their 2014-15 season with a victory over the New Orleans Pelicans. Their 2-1 record has them ranked third in the Southwest standings, right behind the Houston Rockets and the Memphis Grizzlies. The starting five has had troubles finishing games lately, but the last two weeks seem to reassure fans that the team still has what it takes. During the game against the Pelicans, six Mavs scored in the double digits, including long-time favorite Dirk Nowitzki and new-comer Tyson Chandler. The Miami Heat come into town on Sunday as the Mavericks attempt to continue their home winning streak and move up the rankings. Tickets for Sunday’s game can still be purchased online, with prices starting at $10.
10/28/14 - The Dallas Mavericks came up just short to the San Antonio Spurs Tuesday, Oct. 28, in a nail-biting game. The final score was 100-101 in their season opener to the defending champions. Chandler Parsons' first basket was a memorable one. Parsons threw a one-hand slam over Danny Green and Tim Duncan after he drove down the middle of the lane. Devin Harris brought in 17 points for Dallas. Including three of the last four, the Mavericks are 20-15 in season openers. The home-opener game against the Utah Jazz is Thursday, Oct. 30, with tickets now only $6. The Mavericks will return to the American Airlines Center to play the Boston Celtics beginning at 7:30 p.m. Monday, Nov. 3, with tickets starting at just $3.

After a one-year absence from the postseason, the Dallas Mavericks snuck into the 2014 playoffs as the eighth seed in the Western Conference. Led by homegrown superstar Dirk Nowitzki, the Mavericks pushed through the excruciatingly tough standings, and slipped into the contention amid the flurry of the final regular season day. Though they took San Antonio to seven games in the first round, the Mavs were ultimately slain by the eventual title champion, putting an end to their 2013-2014 campaign.
This year, thanks to the voluntary pay-cut of egoless Nowitzki, and the bittersweet departure of Jose Calderon, the Mavs partook in a six-player trade with the Knicks, bagging Raymond Felton and two Chandlers to boost this Mark Cuban-owned squad. The franchise will return Tyson Chandler, from the title-winning ’11 team as their new-old defensive anchor. Emerging star Chandler Parsons was acquired from Houston for some big money and should become the No. 3 guy behind Monta Ellis and Nowitzski in the wake of Vince Carter’s departure. Will this be the year that Dallas pushes past the first round of playoffs since winning it all in 2011? With balanced play on both side of the ball, this team is expected to make a substantial playoff run and contend big in the Western Conference. There is no showrtage of heart on this talented team—don’t miss out on Dallas Mavericks tickets and see this win-now team leave it all out on the court in 2015!
5/2/14 - They could have wrapped up their series with the San Antonio Spurs with a win in Game 6, but the Dallas Mavericks fell short of claiming the series with their 109-103 loss. The second quarter of the game proved to be decisive, as the Spurs went into the locker room at halftime owning a nine point lead over the Mavs; Dallas could shave just three points off that in the next two quarters to create the final score. Dirk Nowitzki continued his steady, outstanding play in this series, coming up big with a double-double of 26 points and 15 rebounds, both team highs for the game; Monta Ellis also provided a big contribution of 21 points, six assists, a pair of rebounds, and a steal, while Vince Carter continued to make noise, knocking down 28 points, three boards, and a pair of assists.
4/17/14 - With Memphis’s defeat of Phoenix over the weekend, the Dallas Mavericks were locked into the West’s playoff picture, as they also dealt the reeling Suns a loss, 101-98. Most of the work was done by Dallas’s two big stars, Dirk Nowitzki (23 points, eight rebounds, three assists, two steals and a block) and Monta ellis (37 points, four rebounds, five assists and two steals). Coming off the bench, Brandan Wright secured a double-double of 12 points, 11 rebounds and three rejections; another bench man, Vince Carter, contributed 10 points, five boards, a pair of dishes, and two steals for the Mavs. The Mavs faced the Grizzlies in their last game of the regular season, to determine the seventh and eighth seeds in the West.
4/10/14 - t’s a tight, tight race in the West, where three games separate the overall sixth place team (Golden State) to the ninth place team (Memphis). Of course, only the top eight teams in the conference will advance to the NBA Playoffs, and with the standings changing seemingly on a nightly basis, this is a race that will likely go down to the very last day of the regular season. If Dallas Mavericks veteran Dirk Nowitzki has any say in the matter, though, the Mavs will be playing well into May. The German sharpshooter scored a game-high 21 points in the Mavs’ 95-83 win over Utah on April 8; along with the scoring, Nowitzki added six rebounds and three assists. Monta Ellis tallied 16 points, four rebounds and five assists, while Vince Carter contributed 13 points off the bench.
4/1/14 - Despite 33 points from Dirk Nowitzki and 27 from Monta Ellis, the Dallas Mavericks were unable to hold down Stephen Curry and Golden State, falling 122-120 in overtime on April 1, a loss that dropped the Mavs into ninth place in the West, a half game behind Memphis and Phoenix in the tight playoff chase. Nowitzki combined his game high scoring with 11 rebounds for a double-double; Shawn Marion broke double figures in rebounding as well, with 10 to go along with just eight points. Brandan Wright provided the Mavs with 14 points off the bench, while Vince Carter added 12 and Devin Harris had 10.
3/26/14 - Dirk Nowitzki came up huge once again for the Dallas Mavericks, racking up 32 points in a key victory over visiting Oklahoma City on March 25, keeping the Mavs just inside the playoff picture in the West. Nowitzki also had a double-double for the night, adding 10 rebounds, to go along with six assists, four steals and a block; the Mavericks also got 22 points from fellow international Jose Calderon, who handed out a team high eight assists as well. All five Dallas starters – Nowitzki, Calderon, Shawn Marion, Samuel Dalembert, and Monta Ellis – scored in double figures; Vince Carter also contributed 16 points off the bench.
3/19/14 - The Dallas Mavericks have moved up a place in the Western Conference, taking seventh place from Memphis on the strength of four wins in their last five games, including a key win over Oklahoma City over the weekend, and over visiting Boston on St. Patrick’s Day. Despite being called out for work on defense by team owner Mark Cuban, Dirk Nowitzki continues to lead the Mavs’ offense, leading the team’s offensive effort over the Celtics with 19 points; while Monta Ellis chipped in 17, and Devin Harris provided a key contribution off the bench with 12 points. Ellis and Samuel Dalembert were the Mavs’ Windex men, each cleaning the glass for seven rebounds; Dalembert also had a pair of blocked shots.
3/13/14 - In their last five games, the Dallas Mavericks have won two – both at home, including a key win over Indiana, while losing three – all on the road. The Mavs failed to have anyone score over 15 points in their last loss, to Golden State; Monta Ellis reached that mark, while Jose Calderon had just 13 points and Dirk Nowitzki 12. Calderon collected eight assists, and DeJuan Blair came off the bench to provide the Mavs with eight rebounds, equal parts offensive and defensive. Dallas remains just on the edge of playoff contention in the tough West, just percentage points behind seventh place Memphis, and a game ahead of Phoenix.
3/6/14 - Sitting in the #7 slot in the Western Conference – a game behind Golden State, a half-game ahead of Phoenix and a full game up on Memphis – the Dallas Mavericks have little room for error coming down the stretch, so last Sunday’s loss to in-state rival San Antonio did not help the Mavs’ cause. The Mavs, who are 0-8 this season against the Spurs, had but three players score in double figures: Dirk Nowitzki, with 22; Vince Carter, who collected 21 off the bench; and Monta Ellis with 17. Ellis also paced Dallas in assists with 8, while center Samuel Dalembert cleared 10 boards.
2/27/14 - The Dallas Mavericks used a trio of 20 point performances – from Vince Carter (23 points off the bench), Monta Ellis (22 points, six assists), and Jose Calderon (20 points, six assists) – to subdue the New York Knicks at Madison Square Garden earlier in the week, 110-108. However, it was veteran Dirk Nowitzki who sank the dagger into the Knicks, with a 19-foot buzzer beater he described to the media as “probably the ugliest game winner I ever shot.” Nowitzki’s 19 foot game winner was part of 15 points he contributed to the Mavs’ winning effort.
2/21/14 - It wasn’t a good start to the second half of the season for the Dallas Mavericks this week, as they were unable to stop LeBron James (42 points) and the rest of the Miami Heat in a 117-106 loss earlier this week. All Star reserve Dirk Nowitzki – who made a mimimal contribution to the West squad, failing to score in eight minutes of play – was back to his old self back in Dallas, scoring 22 points, collecting nine rebounds and seven assists for the Mavs, who are just one game up on Memphis in the Western Conference chase for the playoffs.
2/7/14 - Are the Dallas Mavericks breathing a little easier after claiming a statement win over Memphis on the road on February 5? If they are they’re not letting coach Rick Carlisle know it. The 110-96 win by the Mavs at the FedEx Forum gave Dallas a two game lead over the Grizz, and assured the Mavs of the season series with one game left between the two. But, Carlisle is looking to move up. “We’re not just looking to hang on to the eighth spot,” Carlisle told ESPN. “Who wants to be in the eighth spot if you’ve got a chance to move up to seventh, sixth, fifth or fourth? That’s what our mindset’s got to be.”
1/31/14 - It wouldn’t be an NBA season without the Dallas Mavericks outspoken owner Mark Cuban butting heads with league commissioner David Stern; and, sure enough, Cuban got in some hot water with the outgoing commissioner one final time after a verbal confrontation with game officials in the Mavs recent loss to the Los Angeles Clippers. However, Cuban also made a charitable donation equal to the $100,000 fine levied against him by Stern.
1/10/14 – If the NBA playoffs started today, the Mavs would be in … barely. But, they’ve proven they can play with the league’s best ousting the Trail Blazers in Portland in exhilarating fashion December 7. Monta Ellis’ twenty-foot jumper as time expired lifted the Mavericks past the Blazers for Portland’s second loss of the season at the Moda Center giving Mavs fans a December game to remember for years to come. The most in-demand games on the Mavericks 2014 schedule are Miami Heat (2/18), Oklahoma City Thunder (3/25), and San Antonio Spurs (4/10). Dallas is still looking for its first win against their in state rivals this season.
The Mavs open the 2013-14 season at 3-2, with a win over the Atlanta Hawks, Memphis Grizzlies, and Los Angeles Lakers. Monta Ellis leads the team in points with 24, while the franchise is third overall in points per game, 9 days into the season. The average price of Dallas Mavericks tickets at American Airlines Center-TX is up 45% since last year; at $151 a seat, Mavs tickets are cheaper than the NBA average. The priciest tickets in Dallas this season are Los Angeles Lakers (1/7), Miami Heat (2/18), and Chicago Bulls (2/28), all of the aforementioned opponents are one of the top 5 most expensive NBA teams this year. Mavericks vs. Spurs tickets (12/26) for the in-state rivalry game are currently averaging $246 on the resale market, the fourth most expensive game on the Dallas Mavericks schedule this season.
In the midst of rebuilding, the Mavericks missed the playoffs for the first since time in the last 13 seasons. Coach Rick Carlisle hopes a healthy Dirk Nowitzki and the additions of Monta Ellis, Jose Calderon, and Samuel Dalembert will return the team back to the playoffs. Unable to sign any top-tier free agents the past two offseasons, outspoken Mavs owner Mark Cuban may already be biding his time for the summer of 2014.
2/21/13 - The 2013 Dallas Mavericks may not look like the 2011 version of the squad that won the NBA Championship and their collective beard length may be longer than any team in the Mark Cuban era (the players have vowed to grow out their facial hair until the team gets above .500), but they clearly aren't giving up on postseason play just yet. Since Cuban purchased a majority of the stake in the Dallas Mavericks from H. Ross Perot Jr. in 2000, the team has won two Division titles, two Conference Championships, and one NBA Championship. Currently sitting in 11th place in the Western Conference standings, the Mavs need Dirk Nowitzki healthy, more scoring from OJ Mayo and their sixth man Vince Carter, and leadership from their young starting point guard Darren Collison in order to have a chance at a 2013 NBA Playoff berth.
At the beginning of the season, Dallas Mavericks tickets were the ninth most expensive home and away ticket; averaging $117 per ticket at home and $116 on the road. The team's average price for a regular season game is just $1 more than the average NBA ticket on the secondary market. Following the All-Star break, you'll find cheap Mavericks tickets; the average cost is now only $82. Upcoming home games on the Maverick’s schedule include the (second most expensive game of the season) Lakers on 2/24 (avg. ticket $188), the Thunder on 3/17 (avg. ticket $130), and the Suns on 4/10 (avg. ticket $73).
