DALLAS -- As far as the Dallas Mavericks are concerned, that off day they had Sunday came at the most opportune time.
The Mavs just went through a period where they played eight games in 14 days, including three overtime games. With a team very dependant on a lot of aging players, off days are a precious commodity.
"We needed a day off -- it came at the right time,'' coach Rick Carlisle said. "But I'm not worried about the overtimes. We're pass that stuff.
"But we’re going to have more close games and there may be more overtimes, so we’ll be ready for whatever.''
