The Dallas Mavericks have a lot to worry about

The only positive I can point out for the Mavericks at this point is that Dirk has found his groove again. During their three game win streak he averaged 20.3 points per game on 52.4% shooting. Nowitzki has had his fair share of problems this year, between his age and ailing elbow, but he is not done just yet. However, it seems the countless other struggles that the Dallas Mavericks...

Do Mavericks have a Monta Ellis problem?

The Dallas Mavericks need Monta Ellis to consistently make shots if they want to consistently win games, and neither is happening right now. Ellis is 7-for-31 in his last two outings, and off nights have become a regular occurence since the All-Star break.

Where Do The Dallas Mavericks Go From Here?

What should the Dallas Mavericks do this offseason? The Dallas Mavericks had a great bounce back year. After going to the playoffs for 12 straight seasons from 2001-2012, the Mavericks failed to make the playoffs in 2013. But that didn’t mean this team was going into rebuilding mode. The Monta Ellis pickup may have been one of the smartest and impactful moves from last year’s...
