The Dallas Mavericks, a team many picked to be fighting for a fringe playoff spot in the Western Conference this year, have had a rough go of it. Rick Carlisle & Company didn’t notch their 10th win of the season until Dec. 29th, but they’ve recently turned things around.
Dallas is now 8-3 in their last 11 games and sitting at at 19-30 for the year, good enough for 11th place in the West and in position to threaten for the 8 seed.
So how did they do it?
By hitting a giant reset button drawn on a whiteboard. No, really:
That’s one of the greatest things I’ve ever heard. Not even an actual button. Drawn on a whiteboard!
I want the Mavericks to make the playoffs now more than ever.
