Jason Kidd has 5 points halfway through the first quarter. Good sign for Dallas. Interesting that Corey Brewer is the first man off the bench for the Mavs. He saw no action in Game 2 and has seen limited action throughout the playoffs so far. He came in for Stevenson, who has two quick fouls. The Lakers look more comfortable on offense, passing the ball well. Mavs trail 14-10 with about six minutes left in the first quarter.
