DALLAS – The Mavericks woke up this morning closer to the bottom of the Western Conference standings than they are to the eighth seed. Suffice to say, their 12-season postseason streak looks like it’s on life support at this point. If you want to put a number on it, the statistical formula created by John Hollinger gives the Mavs an 11.6 percent chance of making the playoffs. Home is where the Mavs’ slim hope is.
