Nowitzki Likes Mavs’ Title Run Chances
Dirk Nowitzki is confident the Dallas Mavericks will make the playoffs. And he’s confident their experience will prove valuable once the postseason begins. But Nowitzki also understands the reality facing his team:
Repeating as NBA champions isn’t going to be easy for the Mavs, who have dug themselves quite the hole this season.
“It’s tough,” Nowitzki said. “If you are bottom four, you are basically starting out on the road right away. Last year, we at least had home court through the first round. So, basically, if we want to go to the Western Conference finals, we have to win a lot of road games – and we haven’t won a lot of games on the road.
“Hey, but it is what it is. … Rested, I still like our chances.”
