The Dallas Mavericks shone through with an inspiring game against the Pistons on Tuesday. Though most will say that Detroit was in possession for the majority of the game, Dallas delivered an amazing performance with the help of a few star players. The Pistons were the favorites coming in, given their record, but the Mavs were able to take it 88-84 in the end. This match-up pushes Dallas to 9-4 and Detroit to 10-4. Odds.
While every Maverick gave it his all, Dirk Nowitzki is the player that really stood out on Tuesday. This remarkable player made a season high 42 points with 12 rebounds, 1 assist and 2 blocks. Team leader in both points and rebounds, he is the reason the Mavs were able to keep up for the majority of this game. However, he was not the only player that did well. Jason Terry was good for 16 points, 2 rebounds, 4 assists and 3 blocks, while Caron Butler had 11 points, 8 rebounds and 4 assists. Detroit knew they would be faced with the dynamic duo of Nowitzki and Terry, a truly intimidating pair. In the end, the Texas team as a whole was too much for them to handle. In a combined team effort, Dallas won the “slow-paced, play-off style game”, as coach Rick Carlisle would put it. This game marked the Mavs fifth consecutive win over the Pistons. Scores.
