Lakers lead after three, 72-66


The Mavs were able to close the gap and tie the game at 64, but then Nowitzki went to the bench for rest and the offense went cold.  Jason Terry continues to go hot and cold and Jason Kidd continues to struggle with his three-point shot.  The Mavs have been the better team in the fourth quarters of Games 1 and 2, they will need another one tonight.  Perhaps Barea will be able to provide a spark off the bench and add some life to a rather stagnant offense.
