Mavs hope to avoid slow start against Wizards

The Dallas Mavericks are keenly aware why they're toting a three-losing streak heading into Monday night's home game against the Washington Wizards.

"We're coming out too sluggish, too lackadaisical and too nonchalant," Dallas point guard Dennis Smith Jr. said. "Whatever word you want to use, we don't have the right disposition to start games out."

"Disposition" is a favorite expression of Rick Carlisle, so, if anything, the rookie is listening to his coach. Now, if only the team could do something about it.
