Mavs head to hostile Portland with playoff edge

The Dallas Mavericks keep catching the
Trail Blazers off guard.
First it was Jason Kidd, then it was Peja Stojakovic - as if
defending Dirk Nowitzki wasn't enough.
The surprising success of those two veterans has put the Mavs in
control as they head to Portland with a 2-0 lead in their
first-round playoff series against the Blazers.
So it begs the question, who will break out for Dallas in Game 3
Thursday night at the Rose Garden? Jason Terry? Shawn Marion?
Nowitzki says the Mavs have been trying to spread it around all
season.
But even collectively, visiting the Rose Garden could pose a
challenge for the Mavs. They split the regular season series
against the Blazers, with each team winning on their home court
twice.
