well, the lead is down to 4.
devin's foul trouble, stephen jackson's relentlessness (he leads all scorers with 23) and plenty of defensive breakdowns have conspired against the mavs.
the warriors found a lot of room to work in the paint in the third, and the mavs' jumpers -- with the exception of jet terry -- stopped falling.
dirk has perhaps the quietest 20 points i've ever seen (but no more postup fadeaways!), and erick dampier is on his way to another double-double.
the fact that the mavs have stayed big and punished golden state inside is impressive.
