Before his Mavericks upset the Lakers on Tuesday, Mavs owner Mark Cuban was pointed when asked to assess the reloaded Los Angeles squad.
"I don't know, I don't care, I just hope they suck," Cuban said with a laugh.
Through two games, Cuban is getting his wish.
A night after losing their opener to the Mavericks in Los Angeles, the Lakers dropped a 116-106 decision to the Trail Blazers in Portland. Adding injury to insult, point guard Steve Nash left the game with a bruised leg after a collision with Blazers guard Damian Lillard.
