The Dallas Mavericks will look to close out their 1st round series tonight at the Rose Garden in Portland against the Trail Blazers as they have a 3-2 series lead.

Last season the San Antonio Spurs eliminated the Mavericks in six games last season in the 1st round and Dallas hasn't made it out of the 1st round three of the last four seasons with fans and the team failing to meet expectations.

Mavs Forward Dirk Nowitzki is averaging over 26 points and 7 rebounds per game, but the biggest lift is Tyson Chandler on the inside averaging 10 rebounds a game.

The Trail Blazers have had hit and miss games from 3-time All-Star guard Brandon Roy who has averaged 20 points at home this series, but only 2.3 points on the road in Dallas.

Tip off for Game 6 tonight will be at 9:30 p.m.
