Dirk Nowitzki, after the Mavs lost a 13-point, fourth-quarter lead:

"You know, we wanted to keep the pedal to the medal and obviously go up 3-0, but it didn't happen. They executed well down the stretch and got a win. So, obviously, now we've got a series. It's 2-1. They have got two more home games. Now we're in a dogfight for sure."

"It was just a free throw that I usually make. I don't know what happened. I just shot it a little strong."
