The Scouting Report
On February 20, following the NBA All-Star break and the team's annual trip to its time-share, the Mavericks return to action and continue their fight for the playoffs. With a streak of 12 consecutive postseason appearances on the line, the Mavs have found themselves on unfamiliar terrain throughout a turbulent 2013 campaign. Despite plenty of ups and downs, through 50 games, the team has managed to sink 101 points per game, good enough for seventh in the entire league. They've also put together a 14–9 record at American Airlines Center, compared to just an 8–19 record on the road.
In 1979, millionaire Donald J. Carter and Mavericks' founding president, Norm Sonju, began making efforts to secure an NBA team in Dallas. His dream became a reality at the 1980 All-Star game, when league owners voted to admit the new franchise for an entry fee of $12 million and Mr. Carter's entire baseball-card collection. The newly formed Mavs experienced quick success, making the postseason six times during their first decade. The 1990s proved not so kind, however; the team failed to make the playoffs even once. That ineptitude came to a prompt halt with the start of the new millennium, when, under a fresh and outspoken ownership regime, the team set off a string of 12 straight playoff appearances, highlighted by its first NBA title in 2011.
