Dallas - Nowitski hurt, playoffs in jeopardy

by james on March 23rd, 2008

NBA Obsessed takes you into the hit and run game of NBA Basketball.

Dirk Nowitzki will know more Monday, while Dallas holds their breath

This seems to be an almost impossible scenario.

Who would have thought that Dallas could miss the NBA Playoffs? Dirk Nowitzki hurt his leg in a loss to the Spurs and Tim Duncan. Check out these standings with Dallas way down the list. Only 8 teams make the playoffs. Dallas has lost 3 in a row.

How about the Jason Kidd trade?

Dallas hasn’t beaten a winning team since Jason Kidd arrived. The Mavs are 0-8, including their last three, all at home. They were 29-4 at home—without losing as many as two in a row—before falling to the Lakers, Celtics and now the Spurs.

Dallas is fourth in their own division trailing New Orleans and Chris Paul, the surprising Tracy McGrady Rockets, and the surging Tim Duncan Spurs.

Mark Cuban must be going out of his mind.
