I'm convinced that Dallas lost because TNT switched to the Phoenix/New Jersey game every time Dallas looked like they might be on the verge of a run.
It was either that or the fact that the Mavs played like a team on the fourth game of a back-to-back-to-back-to-back. No attacking on offense - allowing 40 points in the paint - and lazy pass after lazy pass. When the Mavs lose, they lose ugly.
|Dirk Nowitzki||8||8||Good game - should have shot more especially in the 4th|
|Jason Terry||7||6.7||Shot and defended well but made some atrocious decisions with the ball|
|Josh Howard||7||7.3||Took some bad shots but played with more energy than most of the team|
|DeSagana Diop||4||5.9||I don't even remember seeing him play|
|Jerry Stackhouse||4||6.7||Could have stayed home|
|Greg Buckner||6||5.8||Interesting decision to play him down the stretch didn't make an impact one way or another|
|Devin Harris||5||6.9||One point in 30 minutes is bad|
|Erick Dampier||6||6.8||Looked lost on defense particularly when Nazr was on the floor|
|Austin Croshere||4||5.7||Should have put Prince on the ground during that late foul|
|DJ Mbenga||5||5||Just looked like a body to rest the real guys|
|Devean George||6||6.1||Good on one end horrible on the other - you can guess which is which|
