The Nets point guard had no points in the first quarter but 10 in the second.
The Mavericks point guard had 12 in the first quarter and none in the second.
And Dirk Nowitzki had no points in the first quarter but 16 in the second.
So while consistent they are not, the Mavericks and Nets are trading enough baskets to make it a close game.
The third quarter is four minutes old and Dallas has come back from a three-point halftime deficit to lead 61-61 in the third.
And I'm still boycotting the point guard's names.
