WHO: The Dallas Mavericks take on the Portland Trail Blazers. Again.

WHAT: Game Six

WHERE: Rose Garden, Portland, Oregon.

WHEN: 9:30pm CT


THE STORY: The Mavericks, up 3-2, look to close out against the Blazers tonight. The Mavericks were the NBA's best road team this year (they tied Miami with 29 wins), and though they have lost both games in Portland in this series, arguably could have won both of them (and definitely should have won one). Though Portland no doubt has one of the better home court advantages in the league, it's not anything this grizzly old veteran Mavericks squad has not seen before. It will be important to see if they can bring their attack heavy mentality they had in Game 5 with them, hopefully supplementing it with a few more made three pointers. If they can do that, then Brandon Roy might have to score 18 in each quarter for the Mavericks to lose.

Now, in the words of our leader: "GAME SIX ! GO MABS !"
