Rick Carlisle on Thursday cut through the flimflam about expectations for the Mavericks this season.
After all, there were season-ticket holders and media members at the team’s introductory news conference for their many free-agent signees.
“Right now, the excitement is about building this thing back up and getting back to the level where we’re one of those handful of teams that has a chance,” Carlisle said. “And to do that, you’ve got to get back to winning in the playoffs, and that’s going to be our mission this year.”
In other words, Monta Ellis is on the clock. First, he has to help the Mavericks get back to the playoffs — no small challenge in the ultra-competitive Western Conference.
