Mavs Playoff Watch: Week 11 (12/26-1/1)

Week 11 standings, game recaps, Western Conference power rankings, and team stats summary.

To start the new year the Mavericks remain under .500 at 17-19.  They are 4 games back of the Southwest Division lead, 3 games back from the 8th seed in the West, and 7.5 games back from the 1st place team in the West.

This week went just about as you could have predicted for the Dallas Mavericks.  They won all of their home games, moving to 15-3 at home, and lost all of their road games, now 2-16 outside of Dallas.  That is just a ridiculous split that has to give at some point, hopefully in the form of more road wins as they head to the east coast this week for a trio of games.

Brunson started eight games in December with Smith nursing a sprained right wrist. He has since received a DNP-Coaches Decision in three of the Mavericks last four games, including the final game before Smith’s return.
