Dallas snapped a five-game losing streak by beating the Kings in Sacramento over the weekend. All five Mavericks starters scored in double-figures and Yogi Ferrell had 11 off the bench to spark a fourth quarter rally.
The win put Dallas a half-game up on the Kings in the Western Conference. Those two teams are the two at the bottom of the conference and would both like their draft position, the higher it is.
On a side note, I have no idea how the Grizzlies are better than Dallas. It seems like Memphis loses every night. The Mavericks, meanwhile, are no easy opponent. They’ve beaten some good teams this year.
I am wondering if this is Dirk Nowitzki’s last season. He is scoring less in this, his 20th, season than any other since his rookie year but his efficiency has gone up from last season.
In fact, Nowitzki is shooting a career-best 42.9 percent from three this season. He may not fit in Dallas’ plan but no doubt he could still help a contender as a shooter coming off the bench.
He just may not want to wear any other jersey than the Mavericks’.
Los Angeles Clippers
The Clippers beat the Bulls by ten over the weekend for their first win since trading Blake Griffin.
Both Tobias Harris and Danilo Gallinari, recently healthy, scored 24 in the starting lineup. Lou Williams had 21 off the bench.
Los Angeles still may not be done making moves. There’s still an awful lot of interest around the league about Lou Williams and DeAndre Jordan’s name hasn’t gone away in discussed deals.
The Clippers are clearly going for the soft rebuild, considering the deal they made for Griffin. It makes me believe they have some serious targets in free-agency.
LeBron James has, reportedly (though don’t trust it if it doesn’t come from his mouth), ruled the Clips out. There should always be plenty of guys interested in coming to LA, however.
Danilo Gallinari has two years left on his beefy contract. But otherwise, the Clippers have some decent financial flexibility, especially if they trade Jordan. He has one year and about $24 million left on his deal.

Free Dallas Mavericks vs. Los Angeles Clippers NBA Prediction: the Clips.
I can’t come up with a good reason to like Dallas in this game. The Mavericks don’t often beat themselves, no, but they don’t often beat an opponent that doesn’t either. Los Angeles at home is still somehow formidable.
