It looks like Avery Johnson, Dirk Nowitzki and the Mavs played a little possum with Golden State this week. Dirk was just announced in the Mavs starting lineup and is on the floor for tonight's game against the Warriors. Just this morning Avery said this:
"Right now, we're just going to play without him..."
Even Dirk himself got in on the deception act:
"The work today wasn't great," Nowitzki said. "I'm still sore in a couple of movements, so I really don't know what to tell you."
He appears to be moving pretty good, hopefully he can lead Dallas to this crucial win over Golden State.
