Dirk Nowitzki is on record as saying that he isn’t scared of any of the teams in the Western Conference.
Nowitzki likes the Mavs’ chances if they make the playoffs. But he isn’t taking a postseason berth for granted, especially with the Mavs in the midst of a three-game losing streak.
“We’re not set to make the playoffs yet,” Nowitzki said. “We still have a lot of work to do. I think Memphis is going to make a hard push when Zach [Randolph] comes back, and Houston is playing a lot better and some of those teams behind us are making a strong case. We’ve got our hands full and we know we’ve got to play better.”
