Game Story

DALLAS (Ticker) -- The Dallas Mavericks and Memphis Grizzlies are both deep, talented teams coming off 50-win seasons and playoff appearances. That is where the similarities end. The unbeaten Mavericks continued to roll, riding six players in double figures to a 112-88 victory over the winless Grizzlies, who look nothing like the team that surprised the NBA last season. Michael Finley scored 23 points and Dirk Nowitzki added 22 and 13 rebounds for the Mavericks, who have looked awesome through their first three games. Despite adding seven new players, they are averaging better than 108 points per game and winning by an average of 16 points. "I definitely think we've got a good team that hopefully by Christmas will be a really good team and by the (All-Star) break will be a great team." said Jerry Stackhouse, one of the new acquisitions. Another of the new players is center Erick Dampier, who had his best game thus far with 13 points and 18 rebounds. "There's going to be a different person that comes up big every other night," Dampier said. "I'm just contributing any way that I can. We're just going out and having fun." In the offseason, Dampier was courted by a handful of teams, including the Grizzlies and Mavericks, who snared him in a sign-and-trade deal with Golden State. "There was no extra motivation whatsoever," added Dampier. "I think I could have played a lot better tonight." The Grizzlies looked like they could use Dampier - or anyone who can offer some help. They won a club-record 50 games last season, made the playoffs for the first time in franchise history and had high hopes for this season, moving into a new arena. But Memphis averaged just 86 points in losing its first two games at the FedEx Forum and was run off the court by Dallas as it shot less than 38 percent (32-of-85) from the field and was outrebounded, 53-36. The Grizzlies surrendered 26 second-chance points. "Our defensive rebounding has been our Achilles heel in all three games this year," Grizzlies coach Hubie Brown said. "We're struggling a little bit because we've got some key guys who are way behind, way behind in their conditioning and unfortunately for us have nagging injuries. We're not functioning well." "It's just tough right now," said Bonzi Wells, who scored just five points. "We didn't have maybe the best training camp. Some guys are hurt a little bit. I don't think our chemistry is there, where it needs to be." The Grizzlies led by 13 points late in the first quarter but trailed, 57-53, at halftime as Nowitzki rallied the Mavericks with 16 points. Rookie Devin Harris scored five of his 14 points in a 12-1 burst that gave Dallas a 69-56 lead with 7:21 left in the third quarter. Memphis never got within single digits thereafter, unraveling in the final period. "We've done the same thing in the third quarter of the previous two games," Brown said. "Up 12 in the middle of the second, our second group gets outscored 27-11 to close the half. Our first group starts the third and gets outscored 14-5. "That's what happened last night against Houston and that's what happened the first game. It's a problem. For whatever reason, we are not getting any execution over the 48 minutes."
