Mavs Moneyball: 3 things we observed during the Mavericks clobbering of the Warriors, 126-91
What. Just. Happened.
The Dallas Mavericks, losers of 15 of the last 17 games, just handed the Golden State Warriors a gigantic, colossal 'L' on a silver platter.
The Mavericks have had big victories this season. The 118-68 win against the Utah Jazz in November and the 122-84 beatdown against the Charlotte Hornets in January come to mind. But this win, given the circumstances of the Mavericks season, was different and felt really, really good. After all, the Mavericks did stop a 12 game skid at Oracle Arena with the win.
Dallas vs Golden State injuries and projected lineup.
Official Site of the Mavs: In Golden State, Mavericks can learn plenty -- off the court as well as on it
For the last time ever, they will play at Oracle Arena as the Warriors will open their new playpen across the bay from Oakland, Calif., in San Francisco for the 2019-20 season.
No matter what happens in this meeting with Steph Curry, Kevin Durant, Klay Thompson and the rest of the Warriors, the Mavericks can learn a thing or two from the NBA's most dominant team of this decade.
Mostly, they can be comfortable in the knowledge that drama is not exclusive to teams that are struggling. In fact, the most successful teams often have the most drama.

Dallas Morning News: With a season in free-fall, it's hard to imagine a worse time for the Mavericks to face Golden State
OAKLAND, Calif. - In November, December and January, the Mavericks faced twice-reigning champion Golden State three times, winning once.
The largest victory margin in those three meetings was five points. After the most recent meeting, a 119-114 Warriors victory in Dallas on Jan. 13, the Mavericks' record was 20-23.
There even were flickering thoughts that, if Dallas somehow eked into the playoffs, a Warriors-Mavericks first-round series might be mildly entertaining.
That was then, which isn't the Mavericks' reality now.
Though Dallas' future appears bright with Rookie of the Year frontrunner Luka Doncic, and with Kristaps Porzingis in the wings for next season, its 2018-19 season is in free-fall.
Mavs Moneyball: 3 things to watch as the Mavericks stay on the road to take on the Warriors
The Dallas Mavericks are free-falling, with only two wins in their last 17 games. After trading away four of the five players in their season-opening starting lineup, the Mavericks haven't been too concerned with winning games.
That trend is unlikely to change Saturday night, as the Mavericks take on the defending champion Warriors. Golden State will be resting a lot of their stars, but that shouldn't make too much of a difference.
It's hard to watch the Mavericks right now, especially when Luka Doncic isn't doing special things. Nevertheless, there's a game on the schedule so here we are.
