The Dallas Mavericks reinstated guard Delonte West after a brief suspension for conduct detrimental to the team. President of basketball operations Donnie Nelson said the ban was lifted after the eight-year veteran met with Nelson and Mavericks coach Rick Carlisle on Tuesday. After Monday night's preseason win over Houston, Carlisle told reporters West was suspended without offering any details. A former St. Joseph's star, West has battled bipolar disorder during his career.

Some teams look at the future a bit differently than others. The Dallas Mavericks, for example, gave up a chance to select three first- round draft picks in order to add Fat Lever and Rodney McCray to their lineup. Some would say the Mavericks gave up long-term success for short-term improvement. But Dallas thinks not. The Mavericks have made the playoffs in six of the last seven seasons, and rather than gamble on what might be, opted to invest in a couple of proven veterans.

Halfway into Sunday's two-hour pleasure cruise through the Mavericks' varied repertoire of originals and covers, singer-guitarist Raul Malo thanked the sellout crowd at the Theatre of Living Arts for choosing his band over the season premiere of The Sopranos. Oh, right. That was happening Sunday night, too. Only a group with the Mavericks' encyclopedic musical approach and sure-handed versatility - they served up their signature mix of traditional country, classic AM-radio melodies, Latino-pop fusions, roaring honky-tonk, and torchy ballads - could keep you from looking at your watch every so often and wondering what Tony Soprano and crew had cooking.

The gymnasium is in a warehouse district. There are no signs to distinguish the building. All the expensive German engineering parked outside is the only clue that something extraordinary is happening to the people inside. The Dallas Mavericks are having their morning shootaround, getting ready for that night's game against the Charlotte Hornets. Inside the glass doors are reminders of happier times. There are pictures of Dick Motta, the original coach. There is a pennant commemorating 1983-84, the first playoff season.

The frustration that has overtaken the Philadelphia 76ers organization since the season-ending injury to point guard Johnny Dawkins is mirrored in Dallas, where forward Roy Tarpley also went down with a torn anterior cruciate ligament. Tarpley was the Mavericks' leading scorer, averaging more than 20 points a game, but he was more than that. Having apparently overcome some personal problems, including drug and alcohol use, he was the hinge upon which Dallas hoped to swing to contention in the Western Conference.

Christian Laettner, who almost went to the NBA champion Los Angeles Lakers in a proposed four-team deal, instead was traded yesterday by the Detroit Pistons to Dallas in a much smaller deal. Laettner and Terry Mills, another veteran forward, went from Detroit to the Mavericks in exchange for forwards Cedric Ceballos and John Wallace, guard Eric Murdock and cash. Wallace and Murdock never played a game for Dallas, having been acquired by the Mavs in separate trades on draft night in June.

Mark Aguirre hit a critical turnaround jumper with 38 seconds remaining for the last of his 39 points yesterday as the Mavericks edged the Los Angeles Lakers, 120-118, in Dallas to tie their NBA Western Conference playoff series at two games each. The fifth game of the best-of-seven series will be played tomorrow night on the home floor of the Lakers, who are seeking to become the first team to successfully defend the NBA title since the Boston Celtics did it in 1969. "We're in it up to our necks now, and it would be a big disappointment if we don't win," said Rolando Blackman, who scored nine straight Dallas points in the fourth quarter and finished with 28. Aguirre, who poured in 21 points in a 45-point Dallas first quarter, hit the 15-footer that gave the Mavericks a 120-116 lead.

In the midst of considerable ridiculousness, the Mavericks delivered a slice of the sublime. On Wednesday at Bronko Bill's, the new outsize country music funhouse in Northeast Philadelphia (can't miss the 14-foot bull on the roof!), the boot- scooters were out in force. Couples hopped out on the hardwood to give such steps as "the horseshoe dance" a go. DJs played such polished cowboys as Brooks & Dunn and Chris LeDoux, and a little "country hip-hop" besides. And Garth Brooks appeared on "Bronko Vision.

The Dallas Mavericks felt fortunate to get the victory. Dirk Nowitzki had 38 points and Josh Howard made the go-ahead layup with 0.9 seconds left to give the visiting Mavericks a 97-96 victory over the Toronto Raptors yesterday. Toronto's Morris Peterson was told not to switch off Howard and cover Nowitzki during a timeout before the decisive play. But Peterson did, allowing Howard to make a wide-open layup to give Dallas the lead. Toronto's Anthony Parker missed a three-pointer at the buzzer.

New Jersey's conservative provocateur-in-chief, never at a loss for an irascible word, hates what he's hearing from his party's presumptive presidential nominee. Steve Lonegan, who often annoys fellow Republicans as much as Democrats, has lately and improbably become the loudest voice of the Dump Trump movement in the New Jersey GOP. Lonegan is pushing the cause through fiery takedowns of top Donald Trump loyalists, as on CNN recently, when he and Jeffrey Lord accused each other of running a political suicide mission.

Finally playing as if their chance at a playoff berth was on the line, which it is, the Wizards picked up their second consecutive lopsided victory over a team just ahead of them in the standings, beating Derrick Rose's Chicago Bulls, 117-96, behind John Wall's triple-double Wednesday night in Washington. Wall, an all-star point guard, produced 29 points, 12 assists and 10 rebounds, outplaying Rose, who returned after missing two games with a strained left groin and finished with 16 points and four assists.

'THAT'S IT. Twenty-seven turnovers and I can walk away (without any more explanation). " That is how coach Brett Brown summed up his frustration Monday night after his 76ers lost for the 11th straight time to open the season, this one by 92-86 to the Dallas Mavericks at the Wells Fargo Center. Even with that many giveaways, the Sixers found themselves on the verge of collecting win No. 1. They held a two-point lead on a Nerlens Noel dunk with 5 minutes, 12 seconds to go. With only 3:23 to go, the game was knotted at 82. But Dirk Nowitzki hit a big three with 1:47 to go for a six-point lead and an improbable Sixers victory became another sloppy loss.

DALLAS - So much for getting a lift. The 76ers were humiliated Thursday night in a 123-70 loss to the Dallas Mavericks at American Airlines Center. The 53-point setback was their worst since a 56-point loss to the Seattle SuperSonics in 1993. The Sixers are winless through eight games for the first time since the dreaded 1972-73 season. That team went 9-73 to set the NBA's futility record. Based on their last two losses by a combined 85 points, this season's squad is on pace to break that record.

Dirk Nowitzki and the Dallas Mavericks have agreed on what could be the final contract for the 36-year-old German star. A person with knowledge of the deal said Thursday that Nowitzki would get a three-year contract worth roughly $30 million. New contracts cannot be signed until next Thursday. Nowitzki just completed a four-year deal worth $80 million. The 2011 NBA Finals MVP put off finalizing the deal until after the Mavericks met Wednesday night with free-agent forward Carmelo Anthony.

LAST WEEK, Mavericks owner Mark Cuban addressed tanking, saying that NBA commissioner Adam Silver was wrong to deny it exists. "No one thinks it doesn't exist, it's just a question of whether or not it's effective," Cuban told CBSSports.com's Matt Moore. "And when so many teams tank in one conference, it's not effective. " Cuban was talking, of course, of the Eastern Conference, where tanking has become a competitive sport. Which brings us to the Sixers, who have dropped 25 straight games.

Most complete-album shows are celebrations of commonly agreed-on landmarks, victory laps for established classics that send audiences home humming their music collections. But Mavericks , the first album by Peter Holsapple and Chris Stamey, is more like a buried treasure. But at World Cafe Live on Thursday night, the founding members of North Carolina power-pop quartet the dB's - whose 2012 Falling Off the Sky was the original lineup's first album in 30 years - weren't commemorating a neat anniversary or hawking a "deluxe" reissue.

DALLAS - This one had to hurt. The 76ers had the Dallas Mavericks down. But in end, too many missed layups and poor foul shooting led to the Sixers' seventh loss in nine games. The Mavs took their first lead late in the third quarter and went on to seize a 97-94 victory Monday night at the American Airlines Center. "We shot ourselves in the foot tonight," Sixers center Spencer Hawes said. "I don't know how many layups, free throws, a combination of the two we missed. "But if you can't make those, you don't deserve to win. " The Sixers (5-7)

BRADDOCK, Pa. In this gritty borough near Pittsburgh, Mayor John Fetterman is doing what the Philadelphia and New Hope mayors won't - officiating at weddings of gay and lesbian couples who got their marriage licenses in Montgomery County. Last week's Commonwealth Court ruling ordering the county to stop issuing licenses won't stop him, either, as long as the couples got their licenses legally. "If a couple wants to go ahead and do it, I would as well," Fetterman, 44, said after the ruling Thursday.
