Mavs Squash Kings: Who Deserves 'The Dirkie'?
Technically, it's still possible. If a strange shot-devouring bacteria hits Los Angeles and aliens abduct the Jazz . . . Well in any event there's still work to do. Friday it's another late-night visit with the (maybe) lame-duck Kings. The Dallas Mavericks spent about eighteen minutes getting the lead out, finished the half by outscoring the Kings 24-8, and rebuffed a few attempts at a comeback late. The losing streak dies at two as Dallas takes it 117-108.
