Thanks to a monster night (finally) from Caron Butler the Mavs are still alive. It was good to see them much more aggressive in getting to the basket and it payed off big time. The Mavs routed the Spurs to close the series to 3 games to 2 with another big showdown in San Antonio on Thursday. Besides Butler, Dirk had a solid if not spectacular outing and Haywood was much more effective than Dampier has been. Now we just need a repeat performance on Thursday. Can't wait! Later.
