Dirk and Mavs Too Much For The TimberPups

Recap: Shout out to Charles Barkley on lighting the fire under Dirk Nowitzki. He continued his spectacular play by dropping 33 points on 11-19 shooting. Since Chuck’s comment about Dirk being washed up, he has averaged 28 points on 61 percent shooting.

Jason Kidd also made his long awaited return, and showed exactly what the Mavs have been missing. Although Kidd had did have 8 turnovers, he put in a solid eight-point, 10-assist, five-rebound,two-steal performance. When the Mavs let a 17 point lead slip away, it was Kidd’s veteran leadership that helped put the Timberwolves away for good. When the lead got cut down to three while Kidd rested, he returned and hit a huge 3-pointer, which led to an 11-2 run for Dallas, officially putting the pups to sleep for the night.

Play of the game: Trying to put the game away for good, the Mavs led 92-82 with 6 minutes left to play. Jason Kidd dribbled at the top of the key and found Dirk Nowitzki all alone at the 3 point line. Dirk, who has struggled from the 3-point line didn’t think twice, as he launched a dagger into the hearts of Minnesota. That was then followed by one of his trademark celebrations. LETS GO HOME!!!!!

Stat of the night: The Mavericks had 16 steals and forced a season high 27 turnovers.

What’s on tap: The Mavs will return to the AAC and take on their round one foes from last season, the Portland Trailblazers.
