(SportsNetwork.com) - The Dallas Mavericks will try to sweep a short road trip against some of the worst in the Eastern Conference Wednesday night when they travel to The Palace of Auburn Hills to meet the Detroit Pistons. The Mavs toppled the New York Knicks on Tuesday night, then face the Pistons. Save for the Philadelphia 76ers, those two squads own the worst records in the Eastern Conference. On Tuesday, at Madison Square Garden, Dirk Nowitzki registered 16 points with five rebounds and five assists to lead a balanced effort in the Mavericks 107-87 win. Monta Ellis and Chandler Parsons scored 14 and 13 points, respectively, while Devin Harris tallied 11 points off the bench and J.J. Barea added 10 in a reserve role for the Mavs. Tyson Chandler, who was acquired by Dallas along with Raymond Felton in an offseason trade with the Knicks, notched eight points and pulled down a game- high 14 rebounds in his return to Madison Square Garden. To get a positive response (from the fans) felt great because I feel that way about them, Chandler said of his return. Dallas came out firing on all cylinders in the first quarter. The Mavs shot at a scorching 73-percent clip, including a 57-percent rate from 3-point range, leading by as many as 19 and taking a 36-24 lead into the second. The Mavs return home Saturday for a huge matchup with Texas rivals, the defending champion San Antonio Spurs. After a two-game winning streak, during a western road no less, the Pistons crashed back to earth in the finale of the odyssey Monday night. Detroit lost to the Los Angeles Clippers, 113-91. The Pistons committed 18 turnovers and trailed by as many as 27 in this one. The two-game winning streak came to a crashing halt for a team that dropped 13 in a row before its spurt of good play. Jodie Meeks netted a game-high 20 points while Andre Drummond donated 18 points and 13 rebounds in a losing cause. Greg Monroe finished with 15 points and eight boards. We couldnt get stops, Pistons head coach Stan Van Gundy said. They tore our defense apart. Theyre a good offensive team. They were at a quicker pace than we were defensively. The Pistons have three of their next four in The Palace. The Mavs have owned this matchup in recent history. Dallas has won five straight and 10 of the last 11. The Mavs have won three in a row in Detroit and five of their last six. Sean Monahan Jersey . The league announced Thursday that Tom Higgins is leaving that post effective immediately.

"Were moving Sergio out of that role," said Gibbons of the closers spot, less than 24 hours after Santos blew his second save of the road trip and third of the season. Until Casey Janssen returns, Gibbons will go with closer-by-committee. "It could be Loup," said Gibbons. "It could be Cecil. Over the next few days it could be any of those guys." The change is necessary and while fans arent about to take pity on a multi-million dollar athlete, Santos struggles are a reminder of the human element of sports. There he was on Friday night, having blown a two-run, ninth inning lead, hunched over at his locker, his head in his hands for what seemed like an eternity. Santos then stood up and addressed the media. Later, once the ballpark lights had dimmed and he was back in his hotel room, Santos sifted through the litany of text messages he gets after each appearance, good or bad. His wife had written him and so had his parents. One of Santos brothers, Gabe, chimed in. He got messages of support from aunts and uncles, too. Like the goal crease in hockey, the pitching mound can be a lonely island when things arent going well. Out on the road, its easy to get lost in your thoughts. "You go to the hotel and that night, the night of the game, its usually the hardest, you know what I mean, that whole night," said Santos. "I mean, you close your eyes and you cant help but think about it. You think about a million different scenarios, what you could have done different." The sun, as they say, always comes up the next day. "The second you wake up the very next day youre presented with, basically, a choice," said Santos. "You couldd either feel sorry for yourself and say poor me or you could use the next day as an opportunity to know that what happened last night is not who I am.dddddddddddd." Santos turned to an old teammate and friend for advice. He often plays the online game Words with Friends with Darren Oliver and on Friday night, Santos sent Oliver a message. He wanted to talk. Oliver invited Santos to call on Saturday morning. "He said, Ive been through this a million times. I was in the game for so long. You go through stretches where theyre rough and theyre ugly," said Santos. "He says, its up to you to put a stop to it. They can go on for the whole season or you can nip it in the bud, get that confidence back and go out and pitch." Santos need only look at his numbers for a stark reminder of how bad things have been. Hes taken two losses, has blown three saves and has posted an ERA of 10.61 with a WHIP of 2.250. He insists he wont dwell. "For me, my edge has always been my confidence," said Santos. "Even in the midst of the biggest adversity, confidence, I think, is the one thing thats such a useful tool. So to even lose that, and dont get me wrong doubt creeps into your mind all the time, you get there, youre going, "Crap, is it going to happen all over again today? Whats going to happen? But its so important to just push those thoughts out of your mind." Santos is powerless over his role in the bullpen. He cant disagree with Gibbons decision and he wont. All he can do is wait until Gibbons calls his name again. "My whole thing is to help this team win in any way I can," said Santos. "Whether right now thats me throwing in the seventh, eighth, okay so be it because I know when Im going good I can help this team win. More importantly, for this team to win, Ive got to get right."
