- Happy Mavs birthday to:
- 10/20 Sacramento defeated Dallas 93-88 in Dallas. Dallas took a 12
point lead midway through the 2nd quarter, but Sacramento would chip away
at Dallas' lead and the game was tied at 46-46 at the half. The game was
tied at 57-57 with 7:40 left and Sacramento went on a 10-2 "run" to go up
67-58 with 2 minutes to go - yup, just 12 points scored in an almost 6
minute span. Buddy Hield nailed a 3-pointer near the quarter's end to
give the Kings a 71-60 lead after 3. Dallas opened the 4th quarter strong
by scoring the first 12 points to breifly go up 72-71 with 9:40 remaining.
But Sacramento scored the next 4 points to retake the lead and would hold
a small lead the rest of the way (nothing larger than 6 points). Sacramento
held a 3 point lead with 45 seconds remiaing and Zach Randolph (Sac)
missed with 35 seconds left, but Dallas once again could not corral the
defensive rebound and Sacramento ran more time off the clock. George Hill
named a jumper with 16 seconds left to make it a 91-86 game was the rest
was just academic. Rebounding, rebounding rebounding - really sad since the
team was supposed to be focused on it after missing some critical boards in
the previous game. Sacramento out-rebounded Dallas 57-36 including 16-7
offensive. And just 7 offensive rebounds on a night where the team shot
poorly (41.3% FG - though Sacramento was only slightly better at 42.5% FG).
Harrison Barnes had 24 points, Yogi Ferrell had 14 points, and Dorian
Finney-Smith had 14 points including 5-6 FG and 3-4 3-pointers. Wesley
Matthews had a donut with 0-7 3-pointers (his only attempts) [not to pick
on him as a number of Mavs had poor outings]. For Sacramento, Hill had 21
points on 9-12 FG and 3-3 3-pointers and 5 rebounds, Randolph had 13
points including 5-15 FG and 6 rebounds, and Hield had 13 points
including 4-11 FG and 6 rebounds.
- 10/20 Devin Harris did not play in Sacramento game due to the death
of his brother. The team has told him to take as much time off as he needs.
- 10/20 Dallas activated Gian Clavell and placed Dennis Smith (sore
left knee) on IL.
- 10/18 In the first game of the 17-18 regular season, Atlanta
defeated Dallas 117-111 in Dallas. The game stayed closed most of the
way. Atlanta closed the 2nd quarter with a 14-2 run to take a 58-47 lead
at the half - the largest lead of the game. Dallas scored on their first
5 possessions of the 3rd quarter to pull within 59-62 and the game
remained close the rest of the way with neither team holding more than a 6
points lead. The game was tied at 82-82 after 3 and again tied at 111-111
with 1:15 to go. But Dallas could not corral the offensive rebounds down
the stretch and that killed them. Atlanta missed, but Dewayne Dedmon got
the putback with a minutes left. Dallas couldn't find a good shot and
Harrison's Barnes release (a miss anyway) came just after the shot clocked
expired for a turnover with 35 seconds remaining. Sacramento missed, but
Taurean Prince got the rebound and was fouled with 14 seconds left and hit
both free throws to make it a 4 point game. Wesley Matthews missed a
forced 3-pointer and 2 more Sacramento free throws from an intentional
foul capped the scoring. Matthews had 15 points on 5-9 3-pointers (and
0-3 2-pointeers), 8 rebounds, 5 assists, and 5 turnovers; Barnes had 14 points
including 3-13 FG and 0-6 3-pointers and 7 rebounds; Nerlens Noel had 16
points on a perfect 6-6 FG and 4-4 FT, 11 rebounds, and 3 blocks; and
rookie Dennis Smith had 16 points and 10 assists. Smith scored Dallas'
first points of the game on an impressive skying alley-oop dunk from
Matthews (Matthews also had an alley-oop pass to Noel shortly after Noel
entered the game for another highlight dunk). For Atlanta, it was really
a 2-man show as speed demon Dennis Schroder couldn't be stopped and had 28
points and 7 assists and Marco Belinelli had 20 points including 4-6
3-pointers. Rookie John Collins chipped in 14 points and 5 rebounds and
Prince had 10 points and 10 rebounds.
- 10/18 Dallas placed Gian Clavell, Seth Curry (stress reaction left
tibia), Josh McRoberts (lower extremity injury), and Johnathan Motley on
- 10/17 Dallas signed Gian Clavell to a 2-way contract.
- 10/14 Dallas released P.J. Dozier, Jameel Warney, and Maalik Wayns.
- 10/13 Dallas finished the 2016 preseason with a record of 4-2.
- 10/13 In a preseason game, Charlotte defeated Dallas 111-96 in
Charlotte. The Mavs played the game as a warmup to the regular season and
the game stayed close until the end as neither team held more than a 6
point lead until late in the 4th quarter. Charlotte scored 12 straight
points to take an 11 point lead with 4 minutes remaining and Dallas pulled
their key players a short time later. Harrison Barnes had 24 points and 5
rebounds and Dirk Nowitzki had 14 points and 9 rebounds. For Charlotte,
Kemba Walker had 18 points and Johnny O'Bryant had 15 points.
- 10/13 Seth Curry (stress reaction left tibia) did not play in the
- 10/13 Dallas signed Jameel Warney and released Brandon Ashley.
- 10/12 In a preseason game, Dallas defeated Atlanta 108-94 in
Atlanta. As it was the first night of a back-to-back, Dallas elected to
rest a number of their key players. Dennis Smith tweaked his left ankle
in the 2nd quarter and did not return - but it was a minor sprain and he
was able to play the next night. The Mavs reserves and camp fodder played
well and held a double-digit lead a good chunk of the game. Dallas shot
49% FG and Atlanta shot 39% FG. The Mavs won comfortably despite a large
free throw difference as Dallas shot 7-9 FT and Atanta shot 23-32 FT.
Gian Clavell had 19 points including 5-10 3-pointers, 5 rebounds, and 5
assists and Maxi Kleber had 16 points including 4-8 3-pointers. For
Atlanta, Kent Bazemore had 20 points, 6 rebounds, and 5 assists and
Taurean Prince had 11 points for the only Hawks in double-digits scoring.
- 10/12 Seth Curry (stress reaction left tibia) did not play in the
- 10/9 In a preseason game, Dallas defeated Orlando 99-96 in Dallas.
It was the 1st night of a back-to-back for Orlando and the Magic elected
to rest 6 key players. Despite that, Dallas was never able to really
build much of a lead. They did lead most of the game, but no larger than
11 points - disappointing as Dallas did use regular season lineups through
3 quarters. The deep reserves/camp fodder were barely able to hang on to
the win and a missed Magic 3-pointer at the final buzzer prevented the
dreaded preseason overtime. Dennis Smith had 16 points, 6 rebounds, and 7
assists and Harrison Barnes had 14 points. For Orlando, D.J. Augustin had
24 points on 9-14 FG and 6-10 3-pointers and 5 assists and Jonathon
Simmons had 19 points.
- 10/9 Seth Curry (stress reaction left tibia) did not play in the
- 10/7 Seth Curry is out indefinitely with a stress reaction in his
left tibia. He is out for at least a week and will be evaluated on a
- 10/5 In a preseason game, Orlando defeated Dallas 112-89 in
Orlando. In the 2nd night of a back-to-back, Dallas left 7 key players at
home - and the game show it. Orlando used a big run spanning the 1st and
2nd quarters to build a big lead and led 64-46 at the half. The Mavs did
make a push in the 3rd quarter, but Orlando closed the quarter with a run
and Dallas never contested again. It was an ugly preseason game that made
you glad it wasn't televised and few people watched it. Orlando shot 48%
FG and Dallas shot 33% FG. Dennis Smith had 13 points and Yogi Ferrell
had 12 points. For Orlando, Aaron Gordon had 17 points and 10 reobunds in
20 minutes and Nikola Vucevic had 14 points.
- 10/5 Dorian Finney-Smith (sore knee) did not play in the Orlando game.
- 10/4 In a preseason game, Dallas defeated Chicago 118-71 in
Dallas. The Mavs played a more traditional game through 3 quarters (not pure
sets like the previous game) and held small leads through most of that
time frame. They built up a 14 point lead through 3 quarters. And then
the deep bench went nuts in the 4th quarter while Chicago's deep bench
could do nothing. The Mavs out-scored Chicago 44-11 in the 4th. Dallas
shot 50% FG while Chicago shot just 35% FG. Harris Barnes had 17 points
and Dennis Smith had 14 points. For Chicago Paul Zipser had 12 points and
Robin Lopez had 12 points. [In a very funny moment, Dennis Smith showed
his rookie-ness when Robin Lopez was switched on him defensively. Most
point guards drool when a center tries to defend them, but Smith couldn't
get rid of the ball quick enough (even when it was passed back to him).]
- 10/4 Dorian Finney-Smith (sore knee) did not play in the Chicago game.
- 10/2 In a preseason game, Dallas defeated Milwaukee 106-104 in
Dallas. The Mavs basically played in sets: their 1st string played the 1st
quarter, the 2nd string played the 2nd quarter, and the deep bench and
training camp fooder played in the 2nd half. Johnathan Motley hit the
game winning short shot with 4 seconds left. Yogi Ferrell had 12 points
and Gian Clavell had 11 points for the only Mavs in double-digits (but no
player played more tha 21 minutes and most were around 12). For
Miwlaukee, Rashad Vaughn had 20 points and Greg Monroe had 12 points (but
3 of their main players didn't even travel with the team).
- 9/26 Training camp has opened.
- 9/16 Dallas signed Brandon Ashley to a non-guaranteed contract.
- 8/28 Dallas re-signed to Nerlens Noel to a 1 year, $4.1 million
contract (his offer sheet).
- 8/21 Dallas signed Utah free agent Jeff Withey.
- 8/16 Dallas extended its contract with ESPN 103.3 through 2022-23.
- 8/14 The NBA released the 17-18 schedule.
- 8/9 Dallas signed Maalik Wayns.
- 8/8 Dallas signed P.J. Dozier.
- 8/1 Dallas signed Gian Clavell.
