Mavericks coach Rick Carlisle said the series' physical brand of play will continue, but his team needs to move on from the first two games and worry about Game 3.

"Right now, we've got to win four out of five to win the series," Carlisle said. "That's our mindset and what’s done is done. A playoff series is a major test of perseverance and you've got to overcome a lot of things. Right now, we've got to overcome the shotmaking that they’ve thrown at us, we’ve got to overcome some errors in officiating and we've got to overcome being in situations where we had opportunities to win those two games and came up short. It’s got to strengthen our resolve for Game 3."
