Quick Take: Mavericks Roll over Bobcats (Dallas Mavericks 2012-2013)


The Dallas Mavericks bombed the Bobcats from long range and bested them in virtually every possible way in rolling to a lopsided 126-99 blowout in their home opener at the American Airlines Center in Dallas Saturday night.  With Shawn Marion’s 8 points, he was just two points short of being the seventh Maverick in double figures, led by O. J. Mayo’s 30.   Mayo also hit a career-high 7 from 3-point range and the Mavs dominated for most of the game.   Chris Kaman returned from his calf injury and came of the bench to hit 8-of-9 field goals.

The Bobcats were led by Ramon Sessions who often plays well against the Mavs and had 22 points off the bench plus 5 assists.  Byron Mullens had another outstanding game with 16 points and 10 rebounds and the surprising Brendan Haywood had 14 & 11.

The Bobcats are 1-1 after upsetting the Indiana Pacers on Friday night and the Mavericks move to 2-1.  Full analysis tomorrow and preview of the Portland Trailblazers coming up!
