Dallas News, (CP) – Dallas coach Rick Carlisle had seen just about everything he could take. With his Mavericks to play the worst road team in the NBA, Carlisle ripped his players during a timeout in the second quarter.
They got the message. Dirk Nowitzki scored 24 points, Tyson Chandler added 18 points and 18 rebounds, and Dallas kept the Washington Wizards winless on the road with a 102-92 victory Monday night.
“I was mad. Really, it was the craziest I’ve been all year,” said Carlisle. “At this stage, we were playing a losing brand of basketball and they will tell you the same thing. We gathered at both ends and we started competing better. ”
Jason Terry contributed 14 points and eight assists and Shawn Marion had 14 points and nine rebounds for Dallas, which won five straight and six of seven after a sequence of six defeats.
Jason Kidd had 11 points, 11 assists and nine rebounds for the Mavs.
Icy trails in the wake of the detonation of winter Monday night forced the closure of Dallas / Fort Worth International Airport Tuesday morning.
The airport was stopped for about two hours. Just as he reopened about 8:30 am, Dallas Love Field Airport closed.
Officials at both airports are urging travelers to call ahead for information on possible delays and cancellations.
Dallas / Fort Worth International Airport is preparing to resume flight operations after the freezing cold flights grounded for about an hour this morning.
The Associated Press reported “DFW Airport spokesman David Magana said one track was reopened after a temporary closure. And teams work to clear ice from others.”
AP adds “the airport, the eighth largest in the world, is the main hub for American Airlines. Earlier Tuesday, hundreds of incoming flights were canceled because of the massive winter storm sweeping much the country. ”
Temperatures drop near freezing, which allows for some minor accumulation of ice. Freezing drizzle may fall tonight; sleet and snow hit the region late tonight. The snow will continue, probably through Tuesday night, with periods of heavy snowfall. Snow accumulations are expected to be as high as 1-foot depth near I-44 corridor, ranging from 18 inches in parts of southeastern Kansas and western Missouri. Ice accumulations up to 1/2-inch are expected in parts of the Ozarks and northeast winds of 20-30 mph, gusting to 40 mph.
The National Weather Service reports that travel will become increasingly dangerous in Monday and Tuesday, with the possibility of blizzard like conditions virtually exclude travel in total. Power outages are possible, especially near the I-44 corridor. Cold temperatures, with highs only reaching the teens, will extend until Friday morning.
Motorists should be prepared with a kit travel winter storm, which should include tire chains, jumper cables, a flashlight, a shovel, blankets, clothes, water, and anything that would help drivers and passengers survive if their vehicles become stranded.
The National Weather Service issued a winter storm warning for Dallas County and most of Missouri, as a storm rolls in the Ozarks. Accumulations of ice storms and heavy snow, heavy snow, strong winds and even, everything are possible in the coming days.
