The acquisition of Jason Kidd in exchange for Devin Harris, Desagana Diop, & three other players meant that the San Antonio Spurs now have a chance to win against the Dallas Mavericks. Devin Harris & Desagana Diop were two of the Mavericks that really caused trouble for the Spurs. But since they're off to New Jersey now, the Spurs have a bigger chances of winning against the Mavs. And that's just been proven with the Spurs winning 97-94 against the Mavs. Every time we come down here it's a highly contested game. It's a big time rivalry," said coach Avery Johnson.
Yeah, I know that Mavs are still working on things but the clock is ticking. If they don't find their rhythm in time, they'll find themselves vying for a good spot in the playoffs which isn't gonna be easy. The Western Conference is tight and teams are few games behind the number one team, which is "currently" occupied by the LA Lakers. Jason Kidd is a great addition to the Mavs but they are still weak without the defense from Diop and quickness of Harris. They need to shape up now. Coach Avery is probably having migraines in shaping the Mavs into a greater team. Greater than the Mavs who faced last year's upset against the Golden State Warriors.
