It is what it is, Dirk got some calls in the 4th, but he also got screwed on some calls in the first half. Superstars are going to get their calls and so are home teams. That is the way it has always been in the NBA
The Mavs went ten minutes without making a bucket at one point so I have no sympathy for the Blazers. They had their chance to put the game away and failed.
