Dallas: Don’t call it a comeback

🏀Mavericks: The bad news? Despite a double-double from Kristaps Porzingis and a game-tying shot from Luka Doncic with seconds left on the clock, the Mavs couldn’t pull out the W for North Texas yesterday, falling 119–117 to the San Antonio Spurs.

  • The good news? Newly acquired guard JJ Redick could make his Mavs debut as soon as tonight, when Dallas takes on the Philadelphia 76ers at 7:30 p.m. ET/6:30 p.m. CT. Can’t wait.

🏒Stars: Left winger Roope Hintz netted his lucky number 13th goal of the season, winning free breakfast for the Big D and a point for the Stars, but they couldn’t secure the win, falling 3–2 in a shootout loss to the Nashville Predators last night. Womp.

  • And, although their exact return date is still TBD, center Tyler Seguin and star goalie Ben Bishop returned to the ice for a practice skate on Saturday. Here’s hoping they’ll return in time for a late playoff push.

⚾️Rangers: Well, at least the Rangers were part of baseball history this weekend. After being the victims of the San Diego Padres’ first no-hitter in franchise history, the Rangers couldn’t bounce back and were swept by the Padres, including another shutout loss yesterday. Sheesh. They’ll need to get it together for tonight’s 7:10 p.m. ET/6:10 p.m. CT matchup with the Tampa Bay Rays.
