The Mavericks are clinging to their top-10 status in ESPN.com’s weekly NBA Power Rankings as they prepare to visit Golden State and Denver in their final two games before hosting All-Star Weekend.
Dallas has dropped to a season-low No. 10 after losing four of its past five games, including Friday’s home defeat to 13-win Minnesota.
This week’s Mavs comment:
“You can't hammer a division in which the last-place team is two games over .500 ... but even the All-Star hosts don't know how they've managed to hang onto first place in the Southwest in their current fragile state.”
