Mavericks Vs. Blazers: Dirk Dirk Nowitzki Pours It On, Mavs Lead By 12 Heading Into Fourth

With one quarter to play, the Mavericks have a chance to get back on track in Game 4 and their series against the Trail Blazers.

Dirk Nowitzki continued his aggressive force and resembled the Dirk from Games 1 and 2. He had 11 points in the third quarter alone and currently has a game-high 23.

Tyson Chandler has also made his presence felt with 13 points and 13 rebounds. It the first double-double of his postseason. Shawn Marion has 14 points and 4 rebounds.

Dallas is working with a 36-27 rebounding advantage, 15-7 on the offensive glass and have taken 31 free throws, compared to Portland’s 11.

Andre Miller leads the Blazers with 16 but he and the other Portland players will need to kick it into that extra gear to come back.
