O'Neal didn't shoot much, only 9 times. Credit the Mavs defense but Shaq will break it in game 4. Antoine Walker got 12 points and 7 boards in 35 minutes. Walker was good. He had to drive the ball and maybe Shaq will be open more. Jason Williams got 12 points and 3 assists in 35 minutes. Willams did okay, expect his shooting touch back in game 4.
