In their only weekend game, the Mavericks were able to down the Charlotte Bobcats, 126-99. That win put them in a tie for second place in the Southwest Division. The tie is currently between three 2-1 teams, the New Orleans Hornets and Houston Rockets joining the Mavs in that position.

The San Antonio Spurs currently lead the Southwest Division with a 3-0 record. San Antonio took down the Utah Jazz 110-100 in their only game of the weekend to keep themselves undefeated in the young NBA season.

Last place in the Southwest belongs to the Memphis Grizzlies, who have played a game fewer than everyone else in the division and currently sit at 1-1.
