Welcome to the WWW page stock full of stuff regarding the Dallas Mavericks.
This page is maintained by me (Patricia Bender,
contains a large variety of stuff that I wrote and compiled. It also has
some links to other Mavs related WWW pages. This is a pure information
site, I don't have any action pictures. For Mavs talk, I recommend joining
the Mavs mailing list (mail to
with "Add Mavs" as the subject to subscribe), reading the newsgroup

- 11/24 Memphis defeated Dallas 110-96 in Memphis. Memphis used an
11-2 run to take a 17-7 lead with 4 minutes left and it seemed like Dallas
was playing catch-up the rest of the game. Dallas did close the quarter
with a 6-1 mini-run and Memphis led 21-17 after 1. Memphis openned the
2nd quarter with a 12-2 run to go up 33-19 with 6:45 to go. Dallas did
use a 12-2 run to pull within 39-36 with 2:15 remaining, but Memphis
scored the last 7 points of the quarter to take a 46-36 lead at the half.
Both teams shot poorly in the half as Dallas shot 13-39 FG and Memphis
shot 17-46 FG. Memphis led in the teens most of the 3rd quarter until
they scored the last 6 points of the quarter to go up 82-60 after 3.
Memphis out-scored Dallas 36-24 in the 3rd. Dallas did not give up and
continued battling and used a 19-4 run to pull within 89-79 with 6 minutes
left. But Memphis was able to hang on to a double-digit lead and Dallas
would get no closer. Raymond Felton had 16 points (including 14 in the
4th quarter) including 4-4 3-pointers, J.J. Barea had 16 points, Dirk
Nowitzki had 14 points including 5-15 FG and 10 rebounds, and Zaza
Pachulia had 13 points on 2-6 FG and 9-10 FT and 10 rebounds. Devin
Harris had the night off for rest in the first night of a back-to-back.
For Memphis, Mike Conley had 21 points and 6 assists, Jeff Green had 19
points and 7 rebounds, and Marc Gasol had 15 points including 4-12 FG and
10 rebounds as Memphis had 7 players in dougle-digits scoring. Memphis
was playing without Zach Randolph (sore right knee) and Brandan Wright
(sore right knee).
- 11/24 Dallas activated John Jenkins and placed Devin Harris (rest)
- 11/22 Oklahoma City defeated Dallas 117-114 in Oklahoma City.
Oklahoma City scored the last 4 points of the 1st quarter to go up 31-25
after 1. A jumper by Cameron Payne gave Oklahoma City their largest lead
at 41-30 with 8:30 to go, but that would be the largest lead in the game.
Dallas scored 7 straight points to tie the game, but could not take the
lead. Oklahoma City closed the quarter with a 10-2 run to go up 60-52 at
the half. Dallas openned the 3rd quarter with a 17-5 run, capped by a
3-pointer by Wesley Matthews, to take a 69-65 lead with 8:20 remaining. 8
straight Mavs points gave Dallas their largest lead at 79-69 with 5:35
left. Oklahoma City closed the quarter with a 15-3 run to go up 87-85
after 3. The game stayed close in the 4th quarter with neither team
leading by more than 5 points. Consecutive jumpers by Dirk Nowitzki gave
Dallas a 108-104 lead with 3:40 to go, but Oklahoma City (led by Russell
Westbrook) rattled off the next 9 points to go up 113-108 with 2 minutes
to go. Matthews ended the run with a 3-pointer and Deron Williams stole
the ball and a layup by J.J. Barea with 1:15 remaining tied the game at
113-113. After a timeout, Westbrook nailed a jumper. Matthews missed and
Westbrook missed and Zaza Pachulia was fouled on the rebound. But he
missed the first free throw (and had missed 2 free throws with 3 minutes
left), but did hit the 2nd and Oklahoma City was up by 1 with 41 seconds
to go. And Westbrook nailed a jumper with 24 seconds remaining to give
the Thunder a 117-114 lead. Dallas went for 2, but missed and Steven
Adams was fouled on the rebound - but he missed both with 18 seconds left
to keep the door open. Dallas again went for 2, but Williams' shot was
blocked out of bounds. Dallas inbounded and tried to go for the
3-pointer, but did not get a good look as Matthews' turnaround 3-pointer
with 2 defenders on him was well off [Matthews was looking for a call, but
the refs weren't about to give one and I didn't think one was warranted].
Both teams shot over 50% FG. Williams had 20 points, 6 rebounds, and 6
assists; Pachulia had 12 points, 10 rebounds, 6 assists, and 3 blocks; and
Matthews had 18 points including 4-10 3-pointers. For Oklahoma City,

Waiters had 14 points; and Serge Ibaka had 16 points and 9 rebounds. The

3-pointer by Deron Williams pulled Dallas within 7 points with 35 seconds
left. Boston led 54-45 at the half. Dallas scored the first 6 points of
the 3rd quarter to pull within 1 point, but were unable to pull ahead. The
Mavs managed to pull within 1 point or tie the game a number of times in
the 3rd, but were unable to take the lead. Boston led 78-70 after 3.
Dallas scored 7 straight points to pull within 80-83 with 9:20 left, but
Boston continued to cling to the lead. Boston led 91-87 with 6:40
remaining and Dallas scored the next 9 points (taking their first lead of
the game) to go up 96-91 with 3:40 to go. 2 free throws gave Dallas a

Crowder (Bos) nailed a 3-pointers and Boston stole the ball with 22 seconds

- 11/18 Dallas activated John Jenkins and placed Charlie Villanueva
(birth of daughter) on IL.
- 11/16 Dallas defeated Philadelphia 92-86 in Philadelphia.
Philadelphia started the game off shooting poorly and turning the ball
over and Dallas took a 16-4 lead with 5 minutes left and led 28-15 after
1. A jumper by Chandler Parsons gave Dallas their largest lead at 38-19
with 8:15 to go, but Philadelphia then went on a 16-2 run to pull within
35-40 with 3:40 left. Dallas led 49-44 at the half. Dallas held a
single-digit lead the entire 3rd quarter and Robet Covington (Phi) nailed

with 2:20 to go. Jahlil Okafor (Phi) had a dunk with 2 minutes left, but
Dirk Nowitkzi answered with a 3-pointer to give Dallas a 6 point lead and
Philly would get no closer than 4 points the rest of the way. It
definitely was not a pretty game, but in the long run it just goes in the
win column. Dallas had 19 turnovers and Phiiladelphia had 27 turnovers.
It was Philadelphia's 11th straight loss to open the season. Nowitzki had
21 points and 5 rebounds, Deron Williams had 12 points including 3-10 FG

- 11/16 Dallas activated Chandler Parsons and placed John Jenkins on IL.
- 11/14 Dallas defeated Houston 110-98 in Houston. Both teams played
with short rosters as it was the 2nd night of a back-to-back for both
teams (and the 4th in 5 nights for Dallas) and Dirk Nowitzki (rest),
Wesley Matthews (rest), Chandler Parsons (rest), Dwight Howard (Hou,
rest), Patrick Beverely (Hou, injured), and Sam Dekker (Hou, injured) did
not play. Dallas took a 20-11 lead 6 1/2 minutes into the game and led
32-20 after 1. And the 2nd quarter got really ugly for Houston as they
just couldn't do anything right on offense and were poor defensively.
Dallas took advantaged and openned the quarter with an 18-5 run to
double-up Houston at 50-25 with 6:15 left. Dallas led 57-34 at the half
as the Mavs out-scored Houston 25-14 in the 2nd as Houston shot just 5-24
FG. Houston did make small pushes in the 3rd quarter and pushed Dallas'
lead down into the teens midway through the quarter and pulled within 13
points twice in the last 2 minutes of the quarter and Dallas led 82-67 after
3. Houston kept fighting and pulled within 10 points 4 minutes into the
4th quarter, but Dallas then scored the next 9 points. Houston then went
on a 12-3 run to again pull within 10 points at 89-99 with 3:40 but they
could not stop Ray-Ray as Raymond Felton connected consecutive jumpers
(including an "it's mine" dribble and killer shot) and when Houston again
pulled within 10 with 1:40 left Felton scored the next 4 points.
Dallas led the entire game. Raymond Felton had 23 points including a
spectacular 15 in the 4th quarter and 6 rebounds, Charlie Villaneuva had
19 points and 5 rebounds, and Devin Harris had 15 points including 7-11 FG
as Dallas had 6 players in double-digits scoring. For Houston, Terrence
Jones had 23 points including 10-15 FG and 6 rebounds, Jason Terry had 19
points including 5-9 3-pointers, and James Harden had 25 points, 7
rebounds, and 10 assists but shot poorly at 5-21 FG (but did hit 14-14 FT).
- 11/14 Dallas activated John Jenkins and placed Chandler Parsons
(rest) on IL.
- 11/13 Dallas defeated the LA Lakers 90-82 in Dallas. The Mavs
started off slow with missed shots and turnovers and the Lakers led 19-9
with 6 minutes left. But Dallas then went on a 19-3 run to go up 28-22
with 1:35 to go and led 29-24 after 1. Dallas held single-digit leads
throughout the not pretty 2nd quarter and a layup as the quarter ended
gave Dallas a 48-40 lead at the half. In another ugly quarter, Dallas
breifly took a 10 point lead at 52-42 with 10:30 remaining, but the Lakers
scored the next 8 points and Dallas would hold a single-digit lead the
rest of the quarter. The Lakers did not score over the last 4 minutes of
the quarter, but Dallas only scored 5 points. Dallas led 64-55 after 3
(with Dallas "out-scoring" the Lakers 16-15 in the quarter as the teams
combined to shoot 10-39 FG). Neither team still could not find much of a
run as as Dallas continued to hold a single-digit lead (1 to 7 points).
The Lakers pulled within 82-85 with a minute to go. Zaza Pachulia hit 1-2
FT and the Lakers missed on 2 3-point attempts and 4 Dallas free throws
capped the scoring for the game. For the game, Dallas shot just 36.6%
(30-82) FG and the Lakers shot 33% (29-88) FG. Dallas shot 23-29 FT and
the Lakers shot 15-18 FT. But a win is a win and it doesn't have to be
pretty. Zaza Pachulia had 18 points on 5-7 FG and 8-11 FT and 16
rebounds, Deron Williams had 13 points and 7 assists, and Dwight Powell
had 10 points and 12 rebounds - no other Mav was in double-digits (but 3

point lead and Dallas would hold a small lead the rest of the quarter
until the Clippers connected on 2 3-pointers (including one as the quarter
ended) to give the Clippers a 54-53 lead at the half. Dallas used a 14-3
run to take a 78-65 lead with 5 minutes left in the 3rd. Dallas took
their lragest lead on a 3-pointer by Dirk Nowitzki at 84-70 with 2:45
