Is the reigning NBA champs Dallas Mavericks finally showing who they really are? After starting the season slow, the Mavericks are now on a winning streak that puts them for fourth in the rugged Western Conference. Owners of Dallas Mavericks tickets are finally seeing their champs come together and play for another title. The support that the fans have shown all throughout the season has given the team inspiration to go for another title. With the people of Dallas coming all together at the right time, it won’t be a surprise if the Mavericks wins it all again.
Despite starting the month of February on a three-game losing streak, the Mavericks picked it up and are now on a five-game tear. In those five wins, Dallas defeated three teams with a record above .500. After losing their road game against the Cleveland Cavaliers on February 4, Dallas has defeated the Denver Nuggets (February 8), Minnesota Timberwolves (February 10), Portland Trail Blazers (February 11), Los Angeles Clippers (February 13), and Nuggets (February 15). Minnesota is the only team under .500.
Dallas, currently 19-11, has the third longest winning streak in the entire NBA trailing only division rival San Antonio Spurs (nine games) and the surprising New York Knicks (seven games). The winning streak of Dallas will be put into test in their remaining February games. In their remaining six games, they will go up against five playoff teams of last season. It starts with road matchups versus the Philadelphia 76ers (February 17) and Knicks (February 19). They will then host the Boston Celtics (February 20) and the Los Angeles Lakers (February 22). Dallas will end the month with a game against the Memphis Grizzlies (February 29).
In the recent 5-on-5 article by ESPN.com, the writers of the site described Dallas’ winning streak as stabilizing, necessary, understated, overdue, and redefining. With Dirk Nowitzki only getting into prime shape, Lamar Odom still not in his prime shape, and injuries hitting Mavericks key players, Dallas has done a great job to show to the league that they are not a fluke. The crucial victories that Dallas had this month have kept them within striking distance with San Antonio.
Speaking of injuries to key players, Dallas lost another guard in their last game versus Denver. Backup guard Delonte West suffered what appeared to be a gruesome injury to his right finger. West fractured and dislocated his ring finger on his non-shooting hand in the second quarter of that game. West’s injury depletes the guard rotation of Dallas who is already missing the services of Jason Terry (mild quadriceps strain) and Rodrigue Beaubois (personal reasons). West has been solid for the reigning champs playing significant minutes in the both guard spots. In the 29 games played (20 starts) by the 28-year-old West, he is averaging 8.3 points, 3.4 assists, and 2.5 rebounds in 23 minutes of play. West will be out for a while according to head coach Rick Carlisle.
