TV Critic Carves Up The Mavs

The last time the Mavs won a road playoff game was June 3, 2006.

Do you remember it?   It was Game 6 of the Western Conference Finals and they beat Phoenix.

Since then, the Mavs lost 3 road games in Miami and lost in the NBA Finals.

They lost 3 games in Oakland last year to the Warriors and last night lost their second straight road playoff game in New Orleans. 

That’s 0 for 8. 

Former Dallas Morning News TV critic, Ed Bark, is hot and nails the club on his blog.

Dallasbasketball.com Chops Up Avery Johnson

Mike Fisher of dallasbasketball.com thinks Mavs coach Avery Johnson is trying to cover his butt in case the team tanks in the first round to the New Orleans Hornets.

Fish pens: This column is about Avery’s present and his future, and his backroom handling of same.

Our friend ol’ Randy Galloway apparently made some radio noise late last week about his pal Avery’s future, suggesting that a) friction between coach and owner could cause a breakup, b) Avery might initiate the breakup by resigning, and c) giving up his $20-mil contract here won’t be an issue because Avery will “get another job right away.’’

My very educated guess is that the coach himself has some involvement in this tale. The tale is disturbing. The timing is inappropriate. But this is Avery’s Pandora’s Box. He opened it.
