In the introduction, we noted the importance of relativity. Based solely on shooting metrics, the 2003-04 Mavericks aren't particularly close to the top of a greatest offense list.

Dallas, however, had a relentless attack in a year of defensive strength. The league-average offensive rating of 102.9 was the second-lowest figure since the 1977-78 season, only trailing the strike-shortened NBA campaign (102.2) in 1998-99.

Still, the Mavs registered a 112.1 offensive ratinga jarring plus-9.3 and easily the largest difference since 2000.

Nasha point guard for six of these 10 offenses and a coach for one morestirred the unit with 8.8 assists per game. Nowitzki scored 21.8 points per game, while Finley, Nash, Antoine Walker and Antawn Jamison each averaged at least 14.

Dallas notched a league-best 11.1 turnover percentage and grabbed the third-highest rate of offensive rebounds (31.4), which both atoned for a modest 34.8 three-point clip.

Sacramento had the last laugh in 2003-04, finishing behind Dallas in offensive rating but erasing the Mavs in the first round.
