Rick Carlisle Dallas Mavericks Play | Santa Clara Play of the Day
Head Coach Rick Carlisle of the Dallas Mavericks is trying to make life easier on Dirk Nowitzki. Dirk Nowitzki is in his 17th season with the NBA Dallas Mavericks and could use some help to get back to the NBA Finals. The Dallas Mavericks roster is built on a lot of guys that can make plays. A lot of their guys can contribute, not just one guy to lead the charge every night. Dirk used to be that guy, but we are trying to help him out with that responsibility to carry the team.
The Dallas Mavericks just traded for Rajon Rondo which will give them a pass first point guard since they had Jason Kidd all those years ago. The Dallas Mavericks have a 12 time all star in Dirk Nowitzki and have now added a point guard that can get him the ball without him having to create his shot.
The Dallas Mavericks have won the NBA title in 2011, but they have lost in the first round of the playoffs twice and missed the post-season entirely with a 41-41 record in 2013.
