Mavs 102, Pistons 99: Who Gets The Dirkie?
We're into the tidying-up portion of the schedule, making sure to pay friendly visits to the folks back East. This is Detroit, which this time of year has all the charm of a frozen pile of sludgemud.
And the basketball landscape isn't much better.
Give the Pistons at least this much credit -- when our Dallas Mavericks had them on the ropes in the fourth, up to their necks in a hole 15 points deep, the bad guys clawed their way back with a 24-8 run. In the end our Mavs (playing without Trix as he nursed a bad calf) finally throttled them, 102-99.
As coach Rick Carlisle said, "We'll take it and run and get the hell out of here."
No, not much beauty but a win's a win and, with postseason hopes still twitching in some of our hearts, we'll take what's there.
Onward and hopefully upward, but first a shiny thing.
This is where you vote for Player of the Game.

OJ Mayo -- leads the way with 22
Vince Carter -- cool 10 points and 7 boards
Dirk Nowitzki -- 12 points and 7 rebounds
