Mavs Wes Matthews Has Scary Fall; Avoids Serious Injury


The sellout crowd at the American Airlines Center groaned in unison as the arena big screens showed the replay of Wesley Matthews’ right leg gruesomely buckling in the fourth quarter Friday evening. Matthews heard it loud and clear as he stared at the hardwood, lying facedown in the spot where he fell, hoping he hadn’t suffered a season-ending injury for the second straight March.

“If there’s one positive, it’s that Wes is OK,” Dallas Mavericks star Dirk Nowitzki said after a 130-112 loss to the historically great Golden State Warriors.
