The Rundown is back. Every Monday, The Rundown will chronicle the week that was for the Mavericks, as well as let you know what is coming up for the boys in blue, with a unique spin. Simply put, it is your Monday catch-up on all things with the Dallas Mavericks.
Two weeks can change the course of any team. The Mavericks appeared to be in the thick of the playoff chase the last time there was a Rundown. Now things are looking extremely bleak. Dallas is likely happy that the calendar flips over to February. The team went 7-8 in January. They had seven of those losses come by six points or less. The other loss was an overtime loss at Miami. In addition, four of those losses came by three points or less including last two games. The Mavericks are now 7-12 in games when game is within three points with 30 seconds or less. Add it all up and the Mavericks’ chances of making the playoffs are on life support. Let’s take a look at the week for that was for Dallas.
