DALLAS -- After returning home following a dismal 1-2 road trip, the Dallas Mavericks are now faced with a critical four-game home stand.
But coach Rick Carlisle said the four home games against Detroit, Houston, Sacramento and Cleveland are no bigger than any other game on the team's schedule.
"There's no game this season that isn't big,'' Carlisle said after Sunday's shootaround at American Airlines Center. "So there's your answer for every time you ask that question.''
The Mavs (25-20) host the Pistons (17-26) at 6:30 tonight.
