In short, the Mavs are playing as well as anyone could have possibly hoped when this roster was reconstructed last summer, and have positioned themselves to climb up the bottom half of the West’s playoff bracket.

“We’re clicking on all cylinders on both sides of the floor,” said sixth man Vince Carter, who had an outstanding all-around game with nine points, eight rebounds and four assists in 25 minutes. “We’re just going to have to continue to work on consistency on both ends. I think we have slippage sometimes, but everybody’s on the same page. Everybody’s doing what needs to be done for the good of the team.”

“Chuck Daly, one of his favorite sayings was ‘Don’t trust happiness,’” (Coach Rick) Carlisle said, referring to the legendary former Detroit Pistons coach who was a mentor to him. “Especially in the NBA, because it can get you quickly if you start feeling too good about yourself. But I like the way we played.”
