No track meet here

Avery Johnson was asked if the Mavs are ready for a track meet tonight after putting up 120 points at Golden State.

“We’ve just come out of one so at least we know we can run a little bit,” he said. “We want to play this game a little bit more at our pace. We came into that last game with the mind set that we wanted to out-run a running team and score as many points as we could.

“I don’t know if that’s our pace every night. We have a certain pace we like to play and it’s not fast and it’s not slow.”

So what tempo does the General prefer?

“Our ideal game is to keep our opponents in the high 80s if we can, which is a hard thing to do in our league, and try to win the rebound game and for us to get in the 100s,” he said.
