Brandon Bass is exemplifying exactly what the Mavs have to do in this game if they want to win. The previous play, he buried his shoulder into a moving Joel Przybilla and made the basket and converted on the three-point play. Then, the next time on the floor, he went right back and missed the shot but got fouled. The Mavs need to muscle up like Bass is showing. Plus-minus stats don't really work as well on a single-game basis, but it's interesting to note that Bass is the only Maverick who has positively impacted the score when he is on the floor with a +3 rating off the bench.
UPDATE: Seriously, the only reason the Mavs are in this game is Brandon Bass. He crowds LaMarcus Aldridge every time the ball comes close to him and is just strong-arming his way to points left and right. There is no reason he should leave the floor.
