Dirk Nowitzki scored 25 points and pulled down 10 rebounds to help the Mavericks beat the previously unbeaten Hornets. (Jason Terry's 26 points off the bench also helped.) New Orleans was the last NBA team to be beaten this season, and in each of the last three NBA seasons, the last team to be beaten went on to make the NBA Finals. So, good for them. Better for them is the chance is to beat them right back when they play them again tomorrow night at home.
More from The Rundown, including the Flagrant 2 that took out Blake Griffin, and what DeSean Jackson thinks the Eagles played like (probably not what Michael Vick wanted to hear) after the jump.
As in Flagrant 2. As in automatic and immediate ejection. That's what happened to Devin Harris after what happened to Blake Griffin. And what happened was a tackle that rivaled any on Monday Night Football.
"The pregame altercation got us going. It had us ready. We came back into the locker room pumped. We were like pit bulls, ready to get out of the cage."
- The Eagles and Redskins had to be separated before the game. And after it, DeSean Jackson had an unfortunate choice of words to describe how they fought back behind Michael Vick.
