Player Of The Game Award For Mavs-Hawks

Another nailbiter, better results. The Mavs nip a losing streak in the bud, holding fast after a furious Atlanta rally made it close. A missed three, two nailed free throws, a missed layup, and Dallas comes out on top 98-93. Excellence attained should be rewarded. With The Dirkie, the charming golden statue of the one-legged Euro lean-back.
