The 2006–07 Dallas Mavericks season was the team's 27th in the NBA. The Mavericks entered the season as the runner-ups of the 2006 NBA Finals, where they lost to the Miami Heat in six games. They began the season hoping to improve upon their 60–22 output from the previous season. They improved by seven wins, finishing 67–15, claiming the top seed in the Western Conference, and qualifying for the playoffs for the seventh consecutive season.[1] In the first round, they met the eight-seeded Golden State Warriors, and lost in six games in a shocking upset. The Mavericks became the third first-seeded team in NBA history to be eliminated by an eighth-seeded team in the playoffs, following the Seattle SuperSonics in 1994, and the Miami Heat in 1999.

This would be the last time a 67-win team was eliminated before the Conference Finals until 2016, when the San Antonio Spurs were eliminated by the Oklahoma City Thunder in six games in the Conference Semifinals.
