Last night the Dallas Mavericks stumble in the 2nd half to lose to the Phoenix Suns, 97-91. Harrison Barnes was the only Mav with a hot hand dropping in 26 points as the Mavs as a team shot under 35% from the field. Dallas falls to 8-23 on the season. The second worst winning percentage in the NBA ahead of Atlanta. The Mavs return to the court tomorrow night against Detroit.
Dallas Cowboys running back, Ezekiel Elliott, returned to team activities yesterday ending his six-game suspension. Elliott had been accused of committing acts of domestic violence in the summer of 2016. The Cowboys went 3-3 in his absence. Elliott is expected to get a heavy workload on Sunday against Seattle.
And Texas Rangers pitcher, Cole Hamels, is making off-season headlines for all the right reasons. The Rangers ace had donated his nearly $10 million dollar Missouri mansion. Camp Bardabas receives the land of 100 acres and the estate, a day camp program for kids with chronic illnesses and special needs. No kids are turned away from the camp.
