DALLAS (105.3 THE FAN) — The Mavericks head into Wednesday night’s game in Memphis with a chance to lock up the West’s 7th seed and avoid San Antonio in the first round of the NBA playoffs.

With the postseason locked up, head coach Rick Carlisle says the team has no intention of throttling back in the season finale.

“We’re going to play, and we’re going to try to win the game,” said Carlisle on 105.3 The Fan’s New School.

Then things got tense.

Shan Shariff asked Carlisle: “When you praise Dirk…is he uncomfortable with that? Does he talk to you about that at all?”

Listen below for Carlisle’s response.
