The Dallas Mavericks finally seem to have some positive momentum. They’ve won three of their last four games. They’re 18-30 and are still at the bottom of their group. It’s not too late to turn the season around. A playoff hope could still happen if Dallas can continue to win more games. It won’t be easy but it can happen.
