The Dr. Jekyll, Mr. Hyde season continues in Dallas. All season long the Mavericks have countered horrible stretches with flashes of brilliance. In the midst of a season-destroying slide, the Mavs won three-straight games this week in a recovery that couldn't come soon enough. In a string that will either establish Dirk and Co. as contenders—or knock them out of the playoff picture entirely—Dallas plays nine straight games against teams above .500. Stay tuned. —Sean Evans
