Using history as a indicator of what the plan may be tonight: In games missed by Rondo this season, Mavs started Barea in 7, Felton in 2.
Dirk: "We’ve actually done a decent job on (James) Harden, we've felt. But we are paying a lot of attention to him on pick-and-rolls.''

Warriors comeback, just like The Undertaker sitting up after 2 DDTs from Jake The Snake Roberts
I really hope Drake is preparing another verse with Steph Curry's name in it while watching this game.
By the way, he got fouled on that 3 as well.
