As the Dallas Mavericks prepare to defend their house against the Los Angeles Lakers, they are trying to answer their critics. A win tonight will pretty much end the series. It will be interesting to see if the Lakers come out swinging or if Game 3 will be a continuation of Game 2. This clearly is a must win for the Lakers. Lamar Odom is getting the start for the suspended Ron Artest. This will further deplete an already out-manned Laker bench. Advantage Mavericks. Let’s get it on!
