– The Celtics are in cruise control but they allowed the Mavericks to score 31 points in the third quarter.

– No dunks from Gerald Green [2] tonight but there’s always the possibility of a few highlight clips with Bill Walker [3] on the court. On the court for the Celtics: Walker, Davis, House, Scal, and Pruitt. For the Mavs: Nowitzki, Bass, Terry. Kidd, Howard. Rick Carlisle [4] isn’t giving up just yet.

Brandon Bass [5] wasn’t going to just let Big Baby get to the basket. Bass pushed around his former LSU teammate in a match up that will be fun to watch in the fourth.
