The Mavericks know tonight's game against Golden State won't be conventional.
"First one to 120 wins,'' Jason Terry said.
That's the way it is when you play the Warriors. Don Nelson is sure to throw some creative lineups on the floor and the Mavericks will have to score big to win the game.
It will also be fun to see rookie Stephen Curry after he has nearly a full season under his belt. The Warriors are touting him as rookie of the year and with good reason. He's had five games in which he's had at least 30 points and 10 assists.
Another key point will be whether the Mavericks go big with Brendan Haywood (or Erick Dampier) at center or try to match up with the smaller Warriors.
