The Dallas Mavericks are on a skid. It started by losing to the Rockets on April 7. They have won just two of their last seven games to dash their hopes of moving up and avoiding the play-in tournament.

Does it matter if Luka and KP are close? Are supporters making something out of nothing? Let us take a closer look.
