The Dallas Mavericks have reached 60 wins for the 3rd time in five year with there 105-103 win against the Milwaukee Bucks. Even more impressive is that they won the game without Dirk Nowitzki who left in the second quarter after tweaking his ankle.
Avery Johnson has reason to to be happy, this is his second 60-in season with the Mavs and he may be receiving the Coach of the Year award for the second time.
"Fifty wins cannot be trivialized," said coach Avery Johnson, who has coached the Mavs to 60 wins in both of his full seasons, yet enjoyed 60 wins only twice in 16 seasons as a player. "To get 60 or anything above 60 wins in the Western Conference is tough. You talk about 60, that is pretty impressive, especially the way we started [0-4].
"But these men come to play every day. They refuse to lose."
Jason terry led the way for the Mavs with 27 points and hitting a couple of crucial shots down the stretch to seal the game.
