Mavericks, Pelicans aim to stay in race

NEW ORLEANS -- The Dallas Mavericks and the New Orleans Pelicans are both long shots to grab the eighth and final playoff spot in the Western Conference.

But whichever one prevails in their season-series finale Wednesday night at the Smoothie King Center will be in a slightly better position than the other.

The Mavericks enter the game in 10th place, a half-game ahead of the Pelicans, with nine games remaining. Dallas sits 4 1/2 games behind the eighth-place Portland Trail Blazers and 3 1/2 back of the ninth-place Denver Nuggets.
