Of course a buzzer beater against the Celts with no Garnett isn't all that impressive.

Right, but they beat them earlier in the season at home, too.

If they can learn to keep the tremendous leads they build up, they'll be fine. But that ties into their reliance on the jump shot and inability to find Dwight in the post when they need a good score.

I don't know.

Looks to me like they are still one piece away, someone to play the 4 with some power to take some of the inside heat off of Howard. But they should be in the thick of the East playoff hunt as long as Howard is healthy and they get reasonable contributions from Lewis, Turkoglu and Nelson.

Yes, recently Brian Cook (who had a great game today) has been getting some time playing at the 4 and has been doing quite well, but he's no solution. If Tony Battie wasn't hurt, he'd be a help in that department. That's my Captain Obvious quote of the day.

They play their best ball without Jameer Nelson, with Carlos Arroyo and Turkoglu as the primary ballhandlers.

One thing I don't get is why J.J. Redick doesn't play. Sure he can't play defense very well, but he can spread the floor and shoot lights out. At least that's what his DVD told me.

i don't know what the diagnosis is but from what i saw i'd be surprised if devin harris didn't pop his achilies.

when you come down and you're holding your ankle but the video shows that you never rolled it, yet you're still unable to walk? yea... that's not a good sign. hope he didn't, but i think he did.

Man, I hope you're wrong, Headache.

That makes a hell of a lot of sense, but I do hope you're wrong.

Dallas, TX (Sports Network) - Dallas Mavericks guard Devin Harris sprained his left ankle with 7:53 left in the fourth quarter of Sunday's 90-85 win over Denver.

Harris was hurt while driving for a layup. Harris, who collided with several cameramen under the basket, had to be helped to the locker room and wasn't able to put weight on the ankle. He will not travel with the team for Monday's game at Memphis and instead will stay in Dallas to be re-evaluated. He'll have an MRI Monday.
hopefully it was just a sprain... i'd be nervous about the MRI though

Looks like 2-3 weeks with a bone bruise.

I suppose it's time for JJ Barea to step up.

^ Yeah no kidding. That was one of those where you see it and you're thinking "he's screwed". Good news for Harris.

In a breakdown of the most noteworthy principles, Portland would land Mavericks guard Devin Harris and possibly Mavs forward Brandon Bass, New Jersey would receive draft and financial considerations, Dallas' Jerry Stackhouse and a trio of young prospects from Portland (Travis Outlaw, Channing Frye and Jarrett Jack) while the Mavericks would score Kidd.

I'm going to be so pissed if this goes through.

that's actually a pretty damn good trade for everyone involved.

Losing a 24 year old budding star, the best backup to Dirk I've seen possibly in his entire career, and a spark plug from the bench doesn't make much sense when you're only getting a soon to be 35 year old with a lot of mileage. I'm not saying Kidd doesn't have anything left in the tank, but come on. That's way too much to give up for one guy. It would address the ball movement concerns, but it would also thin the bench and create a MASSIVE question mark in backing up Dirk. Who takes that job? Nick Fazekas?

I love Stackhouse, but I think he's expendable. Bass is a huge deal breaker for me considering how impressed I've been with him this season and the job he does behind Dirk. The development of Devin Harris has been interesting to watch so far and the guy just keeps getting better. I don't think he'll ever be as good as the 2002 version of Kidd, but right now and in the future, I think the difference is negligible. Plus, sending Devin to a Western Conference team with an already fantastic young nucleus is a mistake.

If the Mavs indeed need to make a trade, they should be looking to upgrade at the 2. Jones/Hassell isn't exactly eyepopping. A Michael Redd type in that slot would work wonders.

put kidd on that team dallas could win a title. without him, they probably won't. yes it mortgages a bit of the future, but this is a team built to win now.

I like the reserves, except for Turkoglu gettin' the shaft - he's been the clutch guy for the Magic all season long.
