Mavs vs. Nuggets, game 3: Keys to the game
The Mavericks were in Game 2 until they started turning the ball over again and the game got sloppy. The Mavericks started to have bad possessions every time down the floor; which lead to breakaway baskets for Denver.
Jason Kidd needs to step it back up — he needs to be the floor general he’s capable of being.
The Mavericks also desperately need Josh Howard to pick up the pace, injured ankle or not. He keeps Dirk from having to score 45 to win. This series proves Dirk doesn’t back down to playoff pressure — he’s averaging 31/game in this series — but also proves the Maverick bench is as important as the superstar.
I don’t think Dirk will be distracted in the game, despite all the news surrounding his personal life. The game will take over, and as long as he got some rest last night (and he’s been staying with a Mavs executive, so let’s assume he did), he’ll be fine.
