Mavericks Vs. Celtics Halftime Score: Dallas Up 10 Over Boston, 44-34

Dirk Nowitzki has a game-high 21 points to go along with 10 rebounds and is doing all he can to keep the Dallas Mavericks over the Boston Celtics. Jason Terry does have eight points, but outside of that the Mavericks offense has been stagnant all evening.

The Mavericks probably should be leading by more than 10 points since the Celtics are playing without starters Rajon Rondo and Kevin Garnett, plus reserve forward Brandon Bass, are shooting 40.5 percent. With the Celtics short handed it is Paul Pierce who is helping keep the Celtics in this game as he has 11 points and is playing well on the defensive end of the floor with three steals.

Even though the Mavericks offense is shooting right at 40 percent and are leading the game thanks to making two more three-pointers and three more free throws.
