This one tips off at 7 PM EST, and the Mavs should be feeling pretty good after their latest win had Dirk Nowitzki looking like his vintage self. He did have some help though, and the Mavs keep looking more like a playoff team as the season progresses.
“I kept attacking the basket and kept taking my shot and eventually they started going down,” Monta Ellis said after the latest win. It was an impressive one and if they can keep it rolling, then Dirk could be making a return to the playoffs after a depressing absence for a bit there.
The Spurs are favored big in this one (-7), and would probably pick them to cover the spread just because they are home today.
Tell you what, head coach Rick Carlisle has done a fantastic job with this team, and they have already overachieved what I thought their potential was. Mark Cuban is quite a lucky owner, that is all I have to say about that. That is all for the previews today, but hope you have enjoyed reading lately because have greatly enjoyed writing.
