The Scouting Report
As the season reaches its final weeks, the Mavericks continue their fight to make a 12th consecutive postseason appearance. Just a few games back from a berth, the Mavs hope to make up ground against Phoenix on April 10 and New Orleans in the final game of the season on April 17. The odds look favorable: so far this season, Dallas is 3–0 against the Suns and has split its two meetings with the Hornets 1–1. Through 68 games, the team boasts the seventh highest-scoring offense in the league, putting up an average of 101.5 points on the scoreboard and 44,650 points on the Galaga machine in the Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport arcade.
Due to security restrictions, G-Passes must be printed out and presented in person at the event. They cannot be redeemed through Groupon's mobile app.
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.
