Dallas is locked into the 7 seed in the Western Conference and is currently slated to play Memphis in the first round Etc... Melvin Hunt spelled backwards is Tnuh Nivlem

April showers bring May flowers and Danilo Gallinari is raining threes this month.  Gallo is shooting 40% from beyond the arc in the Month of May and has made 8 or his last 16 shots from deep.  Dallas opponents shoot 36.5% from downtown which ranks them 27th in the league.  With Dirk "The Mummy" Nowitzki guarding Gallo, expect to see more fireworks from the Italian.

Denver is playing at the 4th fastest pace in the NBA and will attempt to out run the aging Mavericks.  Denver has only one more home game after tonight's affair with Dallas.  Denver scored 114 in the last home meeting against Mark Cubans' crew.  It would be safe to assume another high scoring night will be in order for the Nuggs after racking up 119 last Wednesday night at home against the Lakers.
