The Dallas Mavericks have looked nothing like a defending NBA champion against the Los Angeles Lakers this season going 0-4.
As it stands right now, the Mavs are the 7 seed and would play the 2-seeded OKC Durants in the first round. But there is a decent chance the Mavs could move up to six and face the Lakers in the Western Conference quarterfinals.
If they do, don't be surprised if Lakers forward Metta World Peace isn't playing. Mr. World Peace went Ron Artest on OKC guard James Harden today and you have to be thinking a big-time suspension is coming. The Lakers defeated the Durants in double OT this afternoon.
BTW - Mr. World Peace averaged 7.0 points and 5.0 rebounds against the Mavs this season.
