On the air: TV: TWC SportsNet, TWC Deportes; Radio: 710, 1330.

Update: Dallas remains in a tight race with Memphis and Phoenix for the final two playoff spots in the Western Conference. The Lakers hadn't lost a season series to Dallas since 2006-07, but it became official in January with a 110-97 loss. In fact, the Lakers' other game against Dallas wasn't very competitive either (a 123-104 loss in November). Dirk Nowitzki continues to put up impressive stats at age 35, hovering around a 22-point average this season.
