Cowlishaw: Mavericks Need to Balance Resting Dirk, Fighting for Playoff Spot
Jerome Miron-USA TODAY Sports

Question: Should we be encouraged or discouraged by the Mavs' game with the Heat? Cowlishaw: Great question. I would lean towards the "encouraged' answer because after beating Indiana, the Mavs played with the Heat for three quarters. That would tell me (I think) that in a playoff series against Oklahoma City, the Clipper or whoever it might be, the Mavericks can probably compete and win a home game. Now that's not much to get excited about I realize. And if you're looking for anything beyond two first-round wins in a 4-2 series defeat, then the answer is "discouraged."
