Eye on Basketball Podcast: Talking Mavs with Skin Wade

Jeff "Skin" Wade of the Dallas Mavericks broadcast team and "The Ben and Skin Show" on 105.3 The FAN in Dallas joins me to discuss the playoff push of the Mavs. With Dallas fighting for their playoff lives the rest of the season, we talk about the stress of counting on other teams to win battles for you and what the Mavs need to do with their remaining schedule to ensure they end up with a playoff berth. What's the most frustrating loss of their season if they miss the playoffs? Who have been the toughest matchups?

The Monta Ellis signing has proven to be a plus for the Mavs so far this season. Has he filled in that Jason Terry role and been the proper playmaker at the end of games? How is the two-man game with Ellis and Dirk Nowitzki going? How has the pairing with Jose Calderon in the backcourt been? What are these Heap Plays you'll hear about with Monta on a Mavs' broadcast?

We discuss all of this, plus the struggled of the Minnesota Timberwolves, the improvement of Blake Griffin, and the bizarre Quentin Ross mixup.
