DALLAS -- The Dallas Mavericks can take complete control of their best-of-seven series with San Antonio if they're able tp defeat the Spurs tonight.
Tipoff at American Airlines Center is at 8:30 p.m.
The Mavs lead the series 2-1 after winning Game 3 on Saturday via a 3-point basket at the buzzer by Vince Carter. But the Mavs are hopeful that the joy and jubiliation they experienced from Carter's game-winner won't affect what happens out on the court in tonight's game.
"Sometimes success is an adversity, but we've got some experienced guys that have been through this,'' coach Rick Carlisle said. "You look around other games, home teams are getting hit with big runs early in games, they're getting hit with losses.
"This is a hard business, a hard time of the year right now. We just have to have the wherewithal to rise above it and make sure our level of fight is equal if not greater than theirs.''
