07:21 AM ET 12.30 | On the one hand, the Mavericks probably wish they could clone Saturday's 105-83 win over Chicago. The Mavs shot 52.6 percent from the field, made 13 of 26 3-pointers, outrebounded Chicago 39-34, and had 26 assists. "It's one of the first times I've seen us really play a complete game for 48 minutes in a while," forward Vince Carter said. "Everybody was on the same page and we were locked in." ... The Mavs (17-13) hope to do the same when they meet the Minnesota Timberwolves (15-15) at 7 p.m. Monday at the Target Center. "I was pleased with the way we played, I was pleased with our resolve when they made runs at us," Mavericks coach Rick Carlisle said. "I've been around too long to trust happiness. That's an old Chuck Daly-ism. Don't trust happiness."

Not to mention the Bulls are a pretty bad team. The Mavs aren't good enough to be happy.

I looked up his coaching record a few weeks ago and he has only 1 losing season
And only 2 that he wasn't in the playoffs.
