NBA Power Rankings: Mavericks Are Just Average

The Mavericks have a range of rankings from No. 7 by Fox Sports to a low of No. 16 by Pro Basketball Talk

The defending NBA champions are not having the season they imagined as they sat down Dirk Nowitzki for four games to regain his stamina. This past week the Mavericks went 2-2 with wins against the Utah Jazz and New Orleans Hornets and their two loses coming by the hands of the Los Angeles Lakers and Los Angeles Clippers. Prior to that week the Mavericks were on a five-game winning streak.
