There were several thoughts on the Carmelo Anthony anticipated-but-not-called foul/3-pointer at the end of the game.
Antoine Wright was frustrated that there was no whistle ("I was positive a whistle was coming, just like everybody else was positive the whistle was coming and the only reasy it didn't come sooner is because (Anthony) lost the ball. I tried to hit him before he got into the shooting motion, I felt like I did, and the whistle wasn't blowing."
Jason Kidd: "The game didn't come down to that last play. We tried to take a foul, we didn't get that. You have to make plays down the stretch and we didn't get that." When asked if this game was taken away from the Mavs: "No. We lost. There's nothing taken. You either win or lose and you learn from the experience and move on."
Dirk Nowitzki: "I thought (Wright) wrapped up (Anthony) pretty good. But if there's no call, you have to play through it." On if the team let up anticipating a call. "Yeah, you can never stop playing. You have to play to the whistle. Early in the game they would've called that a foul. Felt like there were 100 free throws out there. But there was no whistle."
