The first quarter started with the Raptors in control. They quickly managed to build an astounding 19 points lead, but that was about everything they could pull off in the game. Still, the Dallas Mavericks’ defense was in shambles and the Raptors took advantage. However, the Mavericks quickly got their heads together and managed to reduce the deficit. By the end of the first quarter, the score was 24-30.

“That was ugly early, we didn’t really get any stops.” Dirk Nowitzky stated. “I thought our bench really saved us, some nights your starting five just don’t have it for whatever reason, fatigue, rhythm or whatever. Our bench was phenomenal.”

“If you come out and aren’t ready to play at a high level you’re going to get your face smashed in, and that’s what happened to us early,” Rick Carlisle, Dallas Mavericks coach, stated. “We took the hit and fought back. Some nights, that’s how you’ve got to win.”
