Stats & Info: Mavs better with the beards

By ESPNDallas.com


After the Dallas Mavericks' win over the Portland Trail Blazers on Feb. 6, several players agreed to forgo shaving and grow beards until they reached the .500 mark.

The Mavs were 21-28 at the time but now are just one game (35-36) from putting their razors to use.

Dallas hosts the Indiana Pacers on Thursday night, and O.J. Mayo's barber will be at the game ready to shave away those beards if the Mavs can walk away with a win.

The Mavs are coming off an overtime victory over the Clippers and have the seventh-highest winning percentage in the NBA since Feb. 6, better than 10 current playoff teams. Only the Miami Heat, Denver Nuggets, Memphis Grizzlies, San Antonio Spurs, Oklahoma City Thunder and Clippers have fared better over that span.

What do you think? Will the Mavs get to shave after the Pacers game?
