Game Story

DALLAS (Ticker) -- The Dallas Mavericks played as if they didn't care their playoff opponent could be the Los Angeles Lakers. The Mavericks locked up the fifth seed in the Western Conference - and a potential first-round date with the Lakers - by rolling to a 110-103 victory over the Memphis Grizzlies. Rookie Marquis Daniels had another big game with 30 points for the Mavericks (51-30), who came in tied for fifth with the Grizzlies. They evened the season series at 2-2 and hold the tiebreaker with a better conference record. By finishing fifth, Dallas' first-round opponent likely will be Los Angeles, which won three straight titles from 2000-02 and reloaded this season, adding future Hall of Famers Gary Payton and Karl Malone to a lineup that includes superstars Shaquille O'Neal and Kobe Bryant. "We feel like to win a championship, we've got to beat everybody," Mavericks guard Steve Nash said. "If you play them first, second, third or fourth, it doesn't matter." "Everyone said we wouldn't want to face the Lakers at the beginning of the year," said Mavericks forward Dirk Nowitzki, who had 11 points and 10 rebounds. "But they have struggled through a lot. A lot of their players have been hurt, so it really doesn't matter." The Mavericks split four games with the Lakers this season, including their first win in LA since 1990. The teams have not played since January 22. "It's going to be a tough series for us no matter who it is but it's going to be a winnable series for us as well," Dallas guard Michael Finley said. Dallas snapped a two-game skid and won for the seventh time in nine games. It set a franchise record by going 36-5 at home, the best mark in the NBA this season. "Home cooking has been really good for us lately," said Nash, who scored 25 points. "It's given us some confidence going into the playoffs." The Grizzlies (50-31) will be seeded sixth for their first playoff appearance and will play San Antonio or Minnesota. They fell behind early and seemed more concerned with getting injured players Pau Gasol and Bonzi Wells back into the mix. Gasol had 10 points on just 3-of-13 shooting in 26 minutes. Wells scored 27 points on 12-of-18 shooting in 25 minutes off the bench. "Our goal as a coaching staff was to make sure they got back for these two games but more important the timing that we are running offensively," Grizzlies coach Hubie Brown said. "Then they need to get their wind so that when we are practicing on Thursday and Friday, they'll be ready to go." "I am just trying to get my touch back, get my legs back, trying to get into the game again," Gasol said. "It hasn't been that long, but it feels kind of long." In its season finale Wednesday, Memphis hosts Minnesota. If the Grizzlies win, they will face the Timberwolves in the first round. "Our game tomorrow night is the biggest game in the West," said Brown, whose club has lost five of its last six games. "There will be a lot of people in the Western Conference watching this game." Finley scored all nine of his points in the first quarter, helping Dallas to a 31-18 lead. The Mavericks shot 56.5 percent (12-of-23) from the field while holding the Grizzlies to 30 percent (6-of-20). Dallas led, 62-46, at halftime and opened its largest lead at 88-66 with 2:50 left in the third quarter on a dunk by Daniels, who made 12-of-19 shots and added eight rebounds and seven assists. After going undrafted, Daniels is averaging 20.7 points in his last 10 games. "I think sitting early in the season and learning from Steve and Mike and those guys tought me a lot," Daniels said. "In the summer league in Los Angeles, Daniels showed you exactly what he is doing right now," Brown said. "If you really think about it, it took them three-quarters of the season to let him do that."
