Only memory remains of the time Dallas saw the Mavericks in a conference final and that was exactly 11 years ago, where the then-great man was also a European player as is the current Southeast team. .
In that 2010–2011 NBA season, the great Dirk Nowitzki was one of the most outstanding players for a team led by Rick Carlisle, who won 57 wins and 25 losses to qualify for the playoffs as the third-best seed in the league. Ended the regular season with Campaign.

The panorama that the Mavs currently have in the playoffs is very different from their experience in 2011, as that season, Dallas defeated the Los Angeles Lakers in the Western Conference semifinals after a 4–1 finish in the series.
Today, Doncic’s Mavs aren’t even close to what Nowitzki and company achieved in those playoffs, because this 2022, the series against the Phoenix Suns remains 3-3 and they’re one game away from continuing or dying. .
However, the memory of Dallas’ glory in 2011 harbors hopes that they will once again reach a conference final.
It should be noted that last season they faced the Oklahoma Thunder in the Western Finals and led by LeBron James and others after destroying the Miami Heat, winning their first Larry O’Brien, reaching the NBA Finals, and He was defeated to make history there. stats ms
