On this night, Antoine Wright responded to the call... and the text. Wright said he got a text from Jason Terry this afternoon, urging him to be a factor.
"He sent me a text and said 'We need you right now, play big,'" Wright said. "I just tried to play aggressive and play to my strengths and it worked out."
Indeed. Wright was stellar, especially in the third when the Mavs started pulling away. I loved how he was a threat inside and out, going into the paint to score and draw fouls, and going just as easily out for a quick jumper.
"Antoine Wright gave us a lot tonight, both defensively, offensively and in the post," Carlisle said.
