It has been a difficult year for the Dallas Mavericks as they host Memphis with a mark of 14-23 on the year. With 45 games remaining on the schedule the Mavericks sit in the 12th spot in the Western Conference and 6 ½ games behind the eighth seeded Portland Trailblazers who occupies the final seed for a playoff spot. It is not too early to talk playoffs because of the improvement this season from Golden St, Houston, Portland and Minnesota who are making it difficult for the teams behind them to make up ground quickly. The sad part for Dallas is they are closer to the worst team in the West in New Orleans than they are to the eighth seed. Dallas played 27 games this season without Dirk Nowtizki in the lineup as he was rehabbing his knee from surgery. Unfortunately it is going to take time for Dirk to get back into playing shape and then to find his good form again. In their 117-112 road overtime win at Sacramento on Thursday Nowitzki scored 17 points and pulled down 9 rebounds in 40 minutes. Memphis is 24-10 on the year and has put the clamps on opponents defensively this season. The team allows 89 points and 43% shooting this season which ranks them in the top five in these two critical defensive categories. Zach Randolph is healthy and contributes with 12 rebounds a game and an efficient shooting percentage over 50% on the season.
