In the Tanking race for the best places for the Draft Lottery, however, any success is not good news. The Mavericks now have 22 victories and 46 defeats to their name, clearly outperforming Memphis Grizzlies (18:49) and Phoenix Suns (19:50), for example.
“We continue to play hard. There are some teams that go down. We are a team that wants to win further. We’ll see where we’ll end up in the draft,”says Nowitzki, who once again contradicted owner Mark Cuban, who had recently said that they were deliberately losing.
