1. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers released its Trinity floodway assessment. Grab a cup of coffee and settle in. Spoiler alert: they don’t like the levees. Mayor Leppert says, despite this huge double guns from the Corps, the bridges and toll road can still be built. Of course, the Trinity could turn into a Stygian river of fire and he would still say that, so I’m not telling you anything you couldn’t have guessed.
3. Dirk Nowitzki outperformed Dwyane Wade in the second half, and a couple of crucial close calls went the Mavs’ way in the endgame in a 98-96 comeback win over the Miami Heat. It’s three years late, but I’ll take it.
