The Mavericks are stinking it up so bad against the 6-24 Timberwolves that fans are booing and it's only the second quarter. Dallas trails 51-32 and Rick Carlisle will be watching the rest of the game from his office.
Carlisle was ejected with about five minutes left in the half. He became upset when Dirk Nowitzki was hit in the face on a shot attempt and no foul was called. Carlisle went on the court, received two techs and departed for the night.
Assistant Dwane Casey has taken over, which, perhaps could be interesting. Casey was the Wolves head coach for 122 games from 2005 to 2007. Maybe he has some leftover secrets.
