It's safe to say that the former NBA Champion Dallas Mavericks are struggling a bit with the absence of standout center Dirk Nowitzki. With a 19-27 record, they're nearly last place in their southwest division. And now, after last night's crushing 105-101 loss to Golden State, they're on a two game losing streak.

Stephen Curry led the Warriors with 31 points, but there's no denying that the Mavs squad went hard until the end in this one. Guard O.J. Mayo had one of his best showings in quite some time, playing for over forty minutes and putting up a total of 27 points, five rebounds, and four assists. The fourth year pro chose the Nike Hyperdunk 2012 for last night's game, favored for its soft Lunarlon cushioning and supportive Flywire upper. It's been one of the most popular choices for NBA players this season, and is a favorite among everyday players too.

The Hyperdunk 2012 is available from Nike Store for $140.
