The Dallas Mavericks are currently the 7th seed in the NBA's Western Conference and the Oklahoma City Thunder and New Orleans Pelicans are surging towards them.  After last night's blowout loss to the Cleveland Cavaliers, Mavericks F Amar'e Stoudemire sounded off on the teams' mindset. 

"I came here to win, and we're [4 ½] games out of being out of the playoffs, which is unacceptable. This is something we can't accept. We've got to find a way to refocus. We've got to key into the details of the game of basketball.  We can't cheat the game. We can't screw around in games and practices and joke around all the time and figure we're going to win games. This is the pros. It's the highest level of basketball. We've got to act that way."

"We didn't come out with the aggressiveness or determination or focus that we needed," Stoudemire said. "We didn't compete. We're not playing like champions, and they took advantage of that."
