Him and on the rim Sunday and a and Charlie -- you know according to -- they are still an important week. Children that you can make that long ago -- -- difficult -- -- -- who. You know leading the block at the argue that about reports that you believe. Per game that really effects the back on your defense that did it mean to -- Actually at school but defending at the Graham has been you know one problem this season. They're really going to be a problem -- go and it'll. Now -- John ligament. Moya and Ovie played better you look and listen in now.

Now John ligament of their opponent that being the Dallas Mavericks since they won a championship Dirk Nowitzki in all that it seems like. That the Mavericks obviously. There. -- but it still potentially could be a top team that. You -- Devlin came back and impacting in. And -- say -- -- of the seven in the past eleven regular season meetings between the Mavericks and you all have been decide about five points or less so looks like. That visit Bay's Julio what do you do the close out the game moves in the game the last two minutes to come down The Who wins -- loses. Well a lot of the media.
