Can Mavs finish strong?

DALLAS -- The Mavs lead the NBA in wins by fewer than five points this season with six. They need to add to that total tonight.

With 2:39 to go, the Mavs are trailing the Charlotte Bobcats by four. Frankly, as poorly as the Mavs have played offensively in the second half, they're fortunate to be within striking distance.

The Mavs are getting help from the guys with the whistle in the fourth, when they're 9-of-9 from the line.
