Ex-Mavs Excelling in the NBA Playoffs
The Dallas Mavericks might not be in the playoffs, but they do have former Mavericks that are excelling the first round of the playoffs.
The Dallas Mavericks finished the season with a 33-49 record in the first losing season since Mark Cuban has owned the team. Dirk Nowitzki missed the playoffs once again and the Mavericks headed for an early summer once again.
But with the playoffs under way, fans in Dallas are watching certain role players excel that used to call Dallas home.
We have players such as Vince Carter and Brandan Wright in Memphis. Richard Jefferson and Ian Mahinmi in the East. You could even look at both Dwane Casey and Terry Stotts in Toronto and Portland that were both part of the Mavericks championship run in 2011.
We have seen a Bulls team take the first two games in Boston while Cleveland did their duty with the Pacers. In the West, Houston is outplaying Russell Westbrook while San Antonio is looking scarier by the game.
Here are four former Mavericks that are excelling in the first round of the NBA Playoffs.
