DALLAS -- With a keen eye on better protection of the basketball, the Dallas Mavericks have won three of their past five games.
And in every one of the victories, the Mavs had less than 10 turnovers. And in the two losses, the Mavs had 18 turnovers on Nov. Nov. 29 against Atlanta and 11 turnovers on Nov. 30 against Minnesota.
In the three victories, the Mavs produced a season-low six turnovers against Golden State on Nov. 27, nine against Charlotte this past Tuesday and eight this past Wednesday against New Orleans.
Coach Rick Carlisle knows why the turnover numbers have been down lately.
"Just our concentration and focus has been better,'' Carlisle said. 'I think our guys realize it’s a must for us to be successful.''
