Halftime: Mavericks 59, Cavs 49
* The Cavs had their usual scorless drought, this time over the first four minutes of the second quarter. A fast start was quickly erased by defensive lapses and the Mavericks waking up and realizing they have to play hard at SOME point in order to take the rest of the night off.
* Christian Eyenga has 13 points and continues to impress. Antawn Jamison has 11 and J.J. Hickson has nine points and five rebounds. Ramon Sessions has nine points and five assists.
* Shawn Marion has given the Cavs fits with 14 points off the bench for the Mavericks. Jason Terry also has 10 off the bench. The Mavs don't have a starter in double figures.
