DALLAS -- Dallas Mavericks coach Rick Carlisle doesn't believe there's anything magical about the system of Los Angeles Lakers coach Mike D'Antoni.
"His system is not that complicated -- never has been,'' Carlisle said after Friday's practice at American Airlines Center. "It’s just hard to guard because of the spacing, and he’s got good players.''
The Lakers lost Friday night in Memphis, 106-98, and will be playing their fourth game in five nights when they face the Mavs on Saturday night at 7:30 at American Airlines Center. The Mavs just may run and run, and run some more to test the weary legs of the Lakers.
"It’s going to be challenging,'' Carlisle said. "Show me a simple play with great players and I’ll show you a play that’s hard to guard.
"But Mike does a great job and we’ve got to be ready and we’ve got to hit them with a lot of energy because (the Lakers played Friday) tonight.''
