That 4th quarter. It hurt to watch. Back and forth, back and forth. For the first 8 minutes it was a tennis match with both teams exchanging buckets and staying within a point or 2 of each other. Then Dirk Nowtizki hit a 3-pointer. Then Monta Ellis scored off a Suns turnover. Then Devin Harris scored his first points of the game by hitting a bomb from deep behind the 3-point line. Just like that the Mavericks had a commanding 8-point lead with 3:03 to go.
