MAVERICKS-MAGIC PREVIEW

ESPN.Go.Com - February 20, 2013


The Mavericks played their first 29 games without Dirk Nowitzki and limped to a 23-29 record prior to All-Star weekend, leaving them in 11th place in the West -- 4 1/2 games behind Houston for the conference's final postseason spot.

"It's not the second half, it's the last 30 games," Carlisle told the team's official website. "We're down to the last little more than a third of the season, and we're just going to have to go whistle to whistle."

The Mavericks headed into the break winning three of four after a 123-100 rout of Sacramento last Wednesday, getting a game-high 26 points from Vince Carter off the bench.

Extending that run might be quite difficult for a Magic team that has dropped 25 of its last 28 after falling 105-92 to Charlotte on Tuesday in a matchup of the NBA's worst teams.

Orlando (15-38) is giving up 104.1 points per game during that stretch after allowing an average of 92.8 in its first 25 games.

"Bad basketball. Bad defense. Just bad," guard J.J. Redick said. "Everybody was out there making mistakes. The NBA is about team defense. For the last 28 games we've been pretty awful on the defensive side of the ball."

Orlando now will turn its attention to ending an eight-game road losing streak that is its longest since dropping 16 straight from Jan. 27-March 31, 2006.

It has lost by an average of 16.2 points during its current road skid.

I'm going to be bold and predict a close Magic win, perhaps in OT.

if we lose by less than 13, we're trying too hard.

Man our defense is disrespectful.....

42 points allowed in the 1st quarter? Thought I was hallucinating, especially with Wince draining that buzzer beater to end the quarter.

Afflalo really does put the "shoot" in shooting guard. That dude loves to shoot. Sometimes I feel like that's about all he does...shoot, oh, and not pass

Also, I didn't realize Jim Carey coached the Mavs?
