Mavs never stay down for long

Mavs never stay down for long MINNEAPOLIS - Resiliency is something good NBA teams have.

The really great teams have next-level abilities to forget tough losses and get angry enough to take it out on the unlucky team next on the schedule.

So far, the Mavericks have been outstanding at coming back from defeat.

For the third time, they responded to a loss by drilling their next opponent. After the season opener, they came back to beat the Lakers by 14. After losing at New Orleans, they whacked Toronto by 28.

On Friday, the Mavericks put the loss in San Antonio behind them by hammering Minnesota by 12. They were up by 20-plus for most of the fourth quarter.

What the Mavericks have to show next is that they can be resilient in all situations.

"Part of your resiliency is you have to bounce back after great wins and have the same kind of energy and hunger,'' coach Rick Carlisle said. "It's not exclusive to tough losses."
