Mavs wish Nets had one win

The Dallas Mavericks will face a team desperate to avoid NBA infamy tonight.

A Mavs win would make the New Jersey Nets the first team in NBA history to begin a season with 18 consecutive losses.

"We'd rather see them if they would have won one already," said Dirk Nowitzki, who figured that being on the brink of such history just means the Nets will be motivated.
