Pop vs. Carlisle an excellent coaching matchup

Popovich is the best coach in the league, but Carlisle is revered in his own right and will do all he can to slow down the Spurs' machine.

Spurs vs. Mavs playoff predictions

The Spurs have lost in the first round as the top seed in the past. Can the Dallas Mavericks make it happen again?

VIDEO QUOTEBOARD: "Rise to the moment"

The playoffs started early -- or at least, it felt that way -- in the Mavericks' last home game of the season. And as a result, soon, the playoffs start for real for this team.

The Aftermath: We missed you, playoffs

The Mavericks win; here's all the reactions you need.

Dirk vs. the Narrative

People have thought a lot of different things about Dirk throughout his career, but it seems like it's all going to end up alright.

Four Pointer: Previewing the Jazz

Four games left. This one is the easiest. Also, with the Spurs coming up next, a must win.

Carlisle: "We all own it."

As the epic homestand ends, the Mavs couldn't quite make one more play to close out one of the (other) best shooting teams in the West.

Dirk: "We lose leads, that's what we do."

The Mavericks played down to the level of the Kings, but took the win with a late-game surge.

Dirk: "All three games have been heartbreakers"

Dirk said the Mavericks think they should have beaten LA three times now, but another poor fourth quarter leads to the third loss of the season against the Clippers (with one to play).

QUOTEBOARD: "I screamed 'finally'"

Two games against OKC and two wins in the past week and a half? Basketball is a strange sport, dudes.

QUOTEBOARD: "Shame on us"

Some postgame quotes from last night's disappointing overtime loss at AAC.

Ranking the rankings: Mavs move up

With three straight wins, including one over the Thunder, rankers are starting to take the Mavs a little more seriously.
