Mavericks 94, Grizzlies 79

Well now we lead this shit 2-0, thanks to another great performance by Dirk Nowitzki and a really good team effort overall. I really liked how all three big men were used to pretty much shut down Pau Gasol. Jason Terry and Josh Howard were also takin care of biz all night.

Next up is the big challenge of the series. Going back to Memphis, the Grizzlies are going to have their home court and their fans, and they are going to be really desperate and pissed off considering that the franchise is 0-10 in its playoff history. They HAVE to win game 3, and they know it. The Mavs are in the best position they could be, obviously, and all they have to do is relax and stay focused, because they are clearly the better team. I think they win the series pretty easily... but I also think the Grizzlies will win one game before its over. Wouldn't it be funny if they didn't?

And in case you were worried that we were turning into jocks and shit around here, we also wanted to let you know that we are teaming up with the dudes at Cowboyriot. They will be taking some pictures at shows and parties and stuff, and we'll be posting some of them on the blog. They take great pictures that make you wish you were at all the places they go, so we think you'll like them.

We'll have an album review and other stuff later this week too, so there.

Did anyone notice that mystical hand gesture performed by Dirk as he walked from the court at the end of the game? I found it absolutely outrageous.

Yeah, that and crazy old guy hair. Does he have to sit so close to the court??? Yikes.

Yeah, does anyone know who that guy is? Or the "Thunderstruck" guy?

I was lucky enough to go to the game last night. Good times, but yeah...that crazy hair guy was in front of me and even though I was on the level above, he was distracting and annoying.

And I really like that PPT song, so it was cool to see them perform it live.

I don't know if you saw this on Frontburner, but they were talking about this today too, and came up with an answer:

"His name is Don Knobler and he runs an apartment leasing company. You can find his office on the southbound service road of 75, around Henderson. Look for the sign with the two blue arrows…can’t miss it. The only reason I know him is because I am a former funslinger and Don knows everyone."

Anon 1: Yes, you might have seen him in "Mavs ManiAAss 4."

Anon 2: No, but some people think he's related to Don Carter. That one's for reals.
