The last matchup between the Lakers and Dallas ended up in multiple altercations, ejections and suspensions. There is a lot of hype coming into this series and it will no doubt be “chippy” seeing their recent history.

In the latest daily dose of “talking Mavs,” DeShawn Stevenson explains that he simply won’t be “punked” as long as he is out there on the floor…

“We want to win a championship,” Stevenson said. “We don’t want to fight and do all that. At the end of the day, we’re basketball players, but as long as me and Tyson are on that court, we ain’t gonna get punked.”

Game 1 tips off tonight at STAPLES Center at 7:30.
