DALLAS -– The Chicago Bulls play the same rock ‘em, sock ‘em style of basketball as the Indiana Pacers.
And that’s not a good sign for the Dallas Mavericks. Unless the Mavs do something about it and change their disposition.
The Pacers physically manhandled the Mavs, 103-78, this past Thursday, by outscoring them 62-37 in the second half and aggressively pounding them on the boards. In order for the Mavs to prevent the Bulls from doing the same thing, they’ve got to be in attack mode for 48 minutes.
“We’ve got to be the aggressors,’’ forward Shawn Marion said. “We can’t let them dictate what they want to do.
“We’ve got to take that away from them to a certain degree. So that means we’ve got to make sure when we get the rebounds that we push it on them.’’
