Since the time when he was coach of New Jersey Nets, Rick Carlisle was neve aware of home hot court and often making relatively easy victory on them. Tonight his current team need victory in order to stay alive in playoff fight on the West, and it will not be easy, at the hottest home ground in league. Their opponent Denver have only three lose so far in league, and even better theams did not win at Colorado. On the other, there is not many teams (maybe San Antonio) in league, with such experience in rooster like Dallas. Shawn Marion, Nowitzki, Caman... all have many games in their hands, and that should help them in Denver. Also if we count position by position, Denver with Galinari, Lawason, Farried have not big advantage over Dallas. Loud atmosphere in Pepsi Center can affect home team to play 50 percent better, but also have big impact on their opponent. This time, that influence should not be very big, and Dallas know how to get well result from position of underdog+
