Sometimes, when things are going south, an NBA team has to dig a little deeper and invent some ways to keep itself afloat.
And no matter what, never lose hope or confidence.
The Mavericks appeared to decide enough is enough at halftime against Philadelphia on Saturday night.
They flexed their backbone and came home strong in the second half to romp past the Sixers 109-91 at American Airlines Center.
A strong third quarter reversed all the sins of a sloppy first half as the Mavericks limited Philly to just 16 points in the period on their way to a season sweep over the Sixers.
