Dirk Nowitzki: We’re Not Done Yet

"We’re not done yet," said Dirk Nowitzki, who was an absolute beast all night, particularly in a 19-point fourth quarter, when he and the Mavericks imposed their will for the first time in the series.

Nowitzki finished with 44 points and 13 rebounds, somehow outdueling Denver’s Carmelo Anthony, who finished with 41 points and 11 boards.

Game 5 is 8 p.m. Wednesday at the Pepsi Center.

"We were just nastily determined to somehow win," coach Rick Carlisle said.

And when was the last time anybody referred to the Mavericks as "nastily determined?"
