Dallas Mavericks Getting Inside 2008-12-31

Dallas Mavericks Getting Inside 2008-12-31
Living on the edge is both exciting and dangerous. The Dallas Mavericks are making it nerve-racking, yet highly entertaining, nearly every time they take the home court.

With double-digit rallies in the books against Indiana and the Los Angeles Clippers, the Mavs upped the ante Tuesday against the Minnesota Timberwolves by coming all the way back from a 29-point deficit in the third quarter to win, 107-100, the largest comeback in franchise history.

If it seems a bit worrisome that the Mavs have needed such huge comebacks against the likes of that trio, which are a combined 24-68, it is.

"Do I hate it?" Nowitzki said, repeating a question that asked if he hates all these comebacks. "I mean, we won. That's what you always want. But that was ugly. They got whatever they wanted. Our defense was soft. It took a lot of energy to come back, but the win is what counts."

More of the same could be on the way with three of four games at home against sub-.500 teams starting with Philadelphia on Friday. The Clippers are back in town on Jan. 6 and then it's the Knicks, who the Mavs rallied to beat in double-overtime in New York, on Jan. 8.

MAVERICKS 107, CLIPPERS 100: Jason Terry scored 24 of his 29 points in the second half when the Mavs rallied from a 29-point deficit. He had 12 consecutive points during a stretch of the fourth quarter. Dirk Nowitzki had 24 points and 13 rebounds and Josh Howard had 23 points. The Mavs trailed at the half 62-40.
