    Tim MacMahon

  5. Dirk Nowitzki snubbed in player of week vote?

    Tim MacMahon

    DALLAS -- Dirk Nowitzki's best week of the season wasn't good enough to win Western Conference player of the week honors. That went to Utah big man Al Jefferson, who averaged 19.8 points, 8.3 rebounds, 2.3 steals and 1.5 blocks as the Jazz went 4-...

  6. 3-pointer: Playoff hopes shrink; Elton Brand plays big

    Tim MacMahon

  7. 3-pointer: Mavs' guards come up small on big stage

    Tim MacMahon

  8. DeMarcus Cousins' career could take off in Dallas

    Tim MacMahon

    DALLAS - The Kings' two previous meetings with the Mavericks this season kind of sum of DeMarcus Cousins' career so far. The 22-year-old big man's phenomenal talent was on display. Cousins torched the Mavs for an average of 27.0 points on 61.3 sho...

  9. 3-pointer: Elton Brand delivers big off bench

    Tim MacMahon

    DALLAS -- Raise your hand if you thought Elton Brand was done. You were wrong. Brand admittedly had a tough transition to being a bench player after arriving in Dallas via amnesty waivers and getting off to a slow start as a starter, but he's s...

  10. 3-pointer: Elton Brand expects more big nights

    Tim MacMahon

    DALLAS - Coach Rick Carlisle called it a "vintage game" for Elton Brand. That was meant as a compliment, but the 14-year veteran wasn't flattered. Brand has had his struggles this season, but he doesn't think the 17 points, 12 rebounds and four...

  11. Chris Kaman (22 points) offers self-critique

    Tim MacMahon

    DALLAS -- Be careful about patting big man Chris Kaman on the back. He might bite off your hand. Sure, the Mavericks are 3-0 since Kaman returned from a strained right calf. And he's been a major contributor in all three games, serving as a remark...

    Tim MacMahon

    DALLAS - Replacing Brendan Haywood wasn't a big problem for the Mavs on Saturday night. The Mavs' centers produced 15 points and 17 rebounds in the 106-99 win over the Spurs, the first of at least five games that Haywood will miss due to a spraine...

  13. 3-pointer: Jason Terry bounces back with big game

    Tim MacMahon

    DALLAS - Jason Terry doesn't agree with the theory that he found his jump shot when he arrived home from the road trip. Never mind the ridiculous disparity in his home and road splits this season. In Terry's mind, he's always one shot away from a ...

    Tim MacMahon

  15. Are big men to blame for bad D in Dallas?

    Tim MacMahon

    DALLAS -- My theory was that the Mavs were a good defensive team as long as they had a healthy big man to patrol the paint. That's been proven wrong over Dallas' recent slump, when they've allowed 54 percent shooting during a 1-3 stretch. Brend...

  16. Mavs have missed big men

    Tim MacMahon

    The Mavericks have managed to keep their winning streak alive with an emergency smallball lineup, but the last few games have been a reminder of how much the Dallas defense needs a legitimate big man. The Mavs have allowed an average of 109.3 poin...
