The season mercifully comes to end for the Dallas Mavericks and Phoenix Suns Terrell Owens Jersey , who finish Tuesday night at American Airlines Center with not much on the line.

The Mavericks (24-57) actually have a little more to play for, if needing a loss counts as incentive. A loss means Dallas clinches at least the third-worst record in the league.

Phoenix (20-61) has already clinched the worst record and therefore has the best odds to win the draft lottery.

Both teams will be sending out lineups deep with roster hopefuls for next season. The Mavs, already without Dirk Nowitzki, Wesley Matthews and J.J. Barea, are listing Dennis Smith Jr. and Dwight Powell as questionable.

Smith, though, is listed as a probable starter and is coming off 20 points and 11 assists in Sunday’s loss at Philadelphia.

“My teammates did a good job of making shots (and) rolling to the rim,” Smith said. “That opened up a lot of opportunities for me to find a man in the corner, or even find a roller. They did a pretty good job of helping me out.”

Smith has had a standout rookie season. Dallas coach Rick Carlisle expects more improvement this offseason.

“In the NBA at the point guard position, you’ve got to improve on everything all the time,” Carlisle said. “This summer will be an effort to refine skills, shooting floaters, reads — all those kinds of things.

“Defensively, he’s come light years. That might be his biggest area of growth Brian Poole Jersey , which is a big statement, because he’s grown a lot on the offensive side as well.”

Powell (13 points, 10 rebounds) and Maxi Kleber (11 points, 10 boards) also had double-doubles against the Sixers.

Harrison Barnes is expected to go in the finale after scoring a game-high 25 points in a season-high 43 minutes in his last game. He couldn’t remember the last time he played as many as 43 minutes.

“It’s been a while,” he said. “I felt it, but it was good. The shots didn’t fall early, but this season has come with its own adversity.”

Mavs reserve center Salah Mejri (right knee contusion) may play against the Suns.

Phoenix didn’t suit up Devin Booker, Tyson Chandler, Marquese Chriss, Josh Jackson, Elfrid Payton, T.J. Warren and Alan Williams for its final home game Sunday, a 117-100 loss to Golden State.

“The guys that played, they played the right way Matt Judon Jersey , they play hard,” coach Jay Triano said. “We’re trying to figure out who fits where in the organization as we move forward, and I think they’re all continuing to battle and give an honest effort.”

Danuel House Jr., making his second career start, scored a career-high 22 points to go along with eight rebounds. House went undrafted out of Texas A&M in 2016.

“With the opportunity to play, he’s shown that he knows how to play the game,” Triano said. “I think he’s a guy that’s used this opportunity to showcase what he can do.”

Phoenix is going for its first sweep of Dallas since 1997-98. The Suns’ four-game winning streak in the series is their longest since nine straight from 1997 to 1999.

Detroit Lions coach Matt Patricia walked briskly onto a field for his first NFL training camp in charge with a black cap, black pullover and black shorts while a yellow pencil was nestled over his right ear.

And, he didn't waste any time sending messages on Friday.

Patricia pulled aside safety Tavon Wilson, one of many former New England Patriots now in the Motor City, to say a few words early in practice.

Wilson, knowing Patricia expects everyone to always hustle, listened to what Patricia had to say and then sprinted to rejoin his teammates on another field.

After speaking briefly with team president Rod Wood, the new coach tried to connect with as many players as possible as they stretched out and warmed up. He chatted with some Frank Zombo Jersey , slapped hands with others and simply tapped helmets as he roamed with a bounce in his step and a smile on his face.

During drills, Patricia spent time with many of the position groups to evaluate quietly or teach with words and gestures.

While Patricia tried to sound businesslike in his news conference before practice, it was clear how fired up he was even before his white sneakers hit the green grass.

“When you walk out on the field again, the painted lines, the fresh cut grass, all of that sort of atmosphere around it, it's exciting,” he said. “If you have been in this game a long time, it takes you back years to when whether you were playing or first started coaching or even just a little kid running around.”

The Lions have been around .500 in recent years, winning nine games in each of the past two years after averaging nine wins over the previous two seasons.

That was not enough for Jim Caldwell to keep his job with the franchise for a fifth season.

The Lions fired Caldwell and hired Patricia shortly after last season, hoping some of what he learned as one of Bill Belichick's top assistants will rub off on a team with one playoff victory in 60-plus years.

Even though Detroit made only subtle roster changes , linebacker Jarrad Davis said the major move made on the sideline may make an impact.

“It can be a huge difference,” Davis said. “The way he came in, honestly Mark Bavaro Jersey , just set the tone right away. You know, he came in, he laid down the law. He gave us the rules and he came in with energy. … He came in, made it clear, gave us the expectations. And now we have something we can chase.”

Davis declined to say what the Lions are chasing, and Patricia has insisted he is only interested in talking about small-picture goals such as making the most out of each day.

Even though Patricia has not ever led an NFL team, a veteran coach who gave him a pivotal opportunity many years ago believes he is ready.

Detroit defensive coordinator Paul Pasqualoni, who hired Patricia as a graduate assistant at Syracuse in 2001, said he knew he would be working for a high-energy, bright coach when he accepted the offer. What he didn't know was how detail-oriented Patricia would be as a head coach.

Patricia has a detailed planned for everything, Pasqualoni said, including the team's hydration and nutrition plan.

“Until you work with him there's no way of knowing that,” Pasqualoni said.

NOTES: The Lions put LB Devon Kennard and DE Cornelius Washington on the non-football injury list. … DE Ezekiel Ansah is on the physically unable to perform list.
