Monday Morning Mavs Donuts

The Mavs are packed for a West Coast roadie that begins in Utah tonight. (I'll have the TV pregame with Bob Ortegel at 7:30 on Fox Sports Southwest.) What they are taking along with them? The haunting thoughts of recent failures, represented in their Monday Morning Mavs Donuts quotes:



The Dallas Mavericks have lost 11 of their last 13. They are 13-21 after yet another overtime loss, this one by a 99-96 score to a poor Hornets team. The Premium coverage of that game with a unique Dirk-centric view is here. The rock-bottom aspect of the loss is covered here. The fans' fire and ire is recorded here on DB.com Boards, among the subjects: Dirk's "I always liked to think you don't want to build your franchise on hope'' remark.

And below: What the Mavs are saying about the Mavs ...

DONUT 1: "ROCK-BOTTOM''? ...

"It feels like a lot of things. It feels like (expletive). This (expletive) sucks. Ain't no way to explain it other than that.'' -- Shawn Marion.
Smile
DONUT 2: MORE WAVES?! ...

"This sucks and there's no other way to explain it more than that. Every loss hurts. ... Things like this come in waves. There will be more of these.'' -- Rick Carlisle.

DONUT 3: TIME'S NOT ON OUR SIDE ...

"I think it's going to take us some time. Unfortunately we don't really have (time) since we're so far behind the eight spot." - Dirk Nowitzki.

DONUT 4: WHEN YOU'RE HOT, YOU'RE HOT ...

"We've got to be better at knowing hot players, finding them. We're struggling with some little things that are killing us." -- Rick Carlisle.

DONUT 5: FILM ROOM ...

"We've got to keep working hard, keep watching film and we've got to get better fast.'' - Rick Carlisle.

DONUT 6: THANKS, FRISCO PARTY STATION! ... Our guys at Frisco Party Station serve as your neighborhood party store! Birthdays, team celebrations, your Super Bowl party ... Frisco Party Station gets it done!

DONUT 7: OLD GUYS, BIG MINUTES ...
Smile
"These overtime are running our older players' minutes way up. That's what concerns me. Vince should be at 30 and Dirk should be at 30. That's where those guys should be, but they're not, so this is where we are.'' - Rick Carlisle.

Smile

DONUT 10: BOO-BIRDS ...

"I was telling Dirk, we have the best fans in the world. I appreciate all those 60-plus win seasons and the champions, because these fans are great sticking with us, because Northeast, New York, Philly we would have been booed off the court a few times for sure.'' - Elton Brand.

DONUT 11: FOLLOW THE MAVS ON TWITTER ... New to Twitter? Here's where to start!





DONUT 12: APOLOGIES AND BLAME ...

"I'm sorry, NBA fans. I've tried for 13 years to fix the officiating in this league and I have failed miserably. Any suggestions? I need help." -- Mark Cuban.

DONUT 13: THE FINAL WORD ...

"yeah, it's frustrating. Disappointing. All that stuff. We've just got to keep fighting.'' -- Dirk Nowitzki.
