It should be noted that there was no Carlos Boozer (knee injury). Paul Millsap was obviously hurting tonight and had only four points and three rebounds. He's also had a bad knee.
But the Mavericks played this team in late December with Millsap, Boozer and Mehmet Okur missing with injuries and still lost. So the 115-108 victory tonight was a big one and the Mavericks badly needed. With a four game road trip to Philly, Milwaukee, Detroit and Boston coming up.
Dirk had a great game with 39 points to lead the way. JT had 22, Brandon Bass had 17 and Jason Kidd had 11 points, 15 assists and seven rebounds.
