Another double digit deficit for the Celtics in the 4th quarter. It's the 4th time in the last 6 games. They've been able to win the last 5. (15 straight overall) Can they squeak another win out here in Dallas to extend the streak?

The Mavericks are trying to ruin the Celtics streak here in Dallas. After 3rd quarter Mavericks are up 77-69. Biggest difference here is Boston's 13 turnovers which have translated into Mavs having 14 more shot attempts than Boston. Despite Kyrie Irving's 30 points on 10-13 shooting, Celtics still shooting 42% as a team. C's need yet another 4th quarter rally to keep their win streak alive.

The Mavericks close the gap on the Celtics at the half, but still have no answer for Kyrie Irving. He's got 25 points on 9-10 shooting, including 4-4 from 3. Irving missed his only shot at the halftime buzzer. Boston up 53-49, as they look for their 16th straight win.
