Thats been the dilemma for teams playing the Mavs. If you want to double Dirk, they'll put Kidd, Peja and Terry out there and murder you from 3 and Dirk will still get 20 ppg. If you want to let him play iso, he'll murder you himself.
I'm a Mavs fan, but if I was trying to stop us I would double Dirk and make Terry/Peja/Kidd hit 3s. Everyone is scared to do that after game 4 vs LA, but I will tell you that hasn't been there all season.
