Mavs Cement Status as No. 4 Team in Southwest Division

And they didn’t have really have to do anything, other than watch Ron Artest get traded to the Houston Rockets. But don’t worry. I’m maybe five days away from perfecting time travel.

    The same used to be said about KG, but now look at him.
