The Mavs aren't just "getting all the right bounces on the offensive glass." They are the better rebounding team; they have been all series because "small" for them is still a good rebounding team with Diop/Dampier, Dirk, Howard. "Small" for SA is Duncan, Bowen, Finley. Pretty much everything else you said about the Mavs, applies to the Spurs also. The Spurs were fighting for their playoff life last night and won by one point, AT HOME. The Mavs weren't fighting to stay alive, but they will be closer to that mentality in Game 6 at home... or on the road for SA, where they are 1-4 in the playoffs!!
