If ratings are indicative of a city's interest in a team then Dallas is sure losing patience with the Mavericks playoff quest against San Antonio. Could it be the team's deteriorating play and effort in falling behind the Spurs 1-3 in the best-of-seven series? Probably.

Game 1, the Mavericks lone win, scored a combined 13.1 rating on Channel 21 and TNT.

Game 2 scored a 10.0

Game 3, Channel 21 and ESPN, scored a 9.9.

Now the early numbers are trickling in for last night's Game 4, which was on Channel 21 and TNT. Looks like the key game managed just an 8.5.

To sum up: The audience plummeted from 332,740 homes at the optimistic start of the playoffs to 215,900 homes for Sunday's Game 4.

Be careful out there. Make sure you don't get hit by a bandwagon jumper.

Even though I have alot of money riding on this series, deep down inside I hope the Mavs pull off the upset.

This could relate back to 2007..

One of the more dominate team.. but fails to do so in the first round of the playoffs.

I really want the Mavs to advance, but Spurs might get the upset here.

I love watching a healthy Spurs team play sound basketball.

A Suns-Spurs match up has great potential for entertainment.

I love watching the Mavs get bounced in the first round. Cuban's going to blow his top.

Mavs suck. Too much talent for one team. Iono how a team of Kidd, Terry, Marion, Butler, Dampier, Haywood, and Dirk (arguably best PF in the game) cant do damage in the playoffs. Just horrible!

But I cant wait to see Mark Cuban blow his top when they lose!

I'm not a magic fan at all, but I really want them to crush the Cavs....
Don't see it happening because Dwight will get into foul trouble in 2 minutes.

I think Boston has a great shot to knock them out. Even more so than Orlando.

I'm sure it's the same for the Nuggets. There's a lot of really disappointed people in Denver right now.
