Dirk Nowitzki led the Mavericks with a blazing 44 points which prevented the Nuggets from sweeping the series. Denver will be trying to rebound on Wednesday night and avoid losing back to back games.

The Nuggets will try to put together another solid home performance this Wednesday night and take down the series.

That win by the Rockets broke a six game losing streak against Dallas.
The New Orleans Hornets will try and put away the Dallas Mavericks as the teams meet in game #5 on Tuesday night. The Mavericks are one game away from yet another first round failure.
