But the Mavericks can't make up any ground on the Cavaliers.
They are playing harder and smarter in the third quarter, but the one thing still missing is rebounds. After they pounded Indiana by 21 rebounds last night, they have just 13 rebounds tonight with 2:55 to go in the third quarter.
They could have a shot at the franchise record at this pace for fewest rebounds in a game.
And they still trail by 11, just a basket closer than they were at halftime.
