Mavericks 104, Spurs 103

So I labeled the last win over the spurs "one of the most important in Mavericks history." I kind of want to say that about THIS game too, but I'd feel stupid repeating myself, not to mention the fact that labeling two consecutive games as two of the "most important" in franchise history would seem a little dramatic to say the least.

But if the last game was all about proving that they can win big in San Antonio, this one was a good demonstration of the Mavs newfound ability to protect the home court, and for what seems like the first time in a long time, they didn't blow a game in which they surrendered a really big lead late.

Perhaps the most encouraging part of the whole thing was that they were able to win without a HUGE game from Dirk, Stack, or Josh Howard. And after getting killed by D. Harris layups in game 2, the Spurs could not seem to find an answer for him in game three. The Mavs were again playing D, making their freethrows, and getting it together when it counted. Yeah, they nearly blew it at the end, and if I would have had a heart attack last night (which I probably almost did), I would have sent my hospital bill to Jerry Stackhouse for fucking up that free throw. But alls well that ends well, and it appears that we're catching all the breaks. Speaking of which, I really really enjoy watching Duncan and Poppovich and Parker turn into cry baby little bitches about fouls. Did you see those pricks? Every time a foul was called against them, they jumped up and down and cried. Duncan seemed like such a jerkoff at the end of the game, didn't he? Look buddy, any time anyone breaths on you too hard under the basket, you get a foul called and go to the line. So you better damn well be ready to have the same thing happen to you when you try to fuck with some Dirk Nowitzki at the end of the game. He's a superstar now too, you know. A superstar on a team that looks more ready to go all the way than any other in... damn it. Franchise history.

And no It list today because I don't know about anything to do. Yo, much respect to my moms, dog.

i'm so stokes about devin harris!
we keep him and josh and we've got two of the best "under the radar" young players around (ie: not dwayne wade, but still damn good)

...i hope dirks foot isn't still screwy for game 4. that looked like it HUUUURT.

and it's great the see the SPURS in foul trouble for once. the guy we spend all of our fouls trying to contain ends up fouling out himself... SUCK, IT BITCH! (excuse my yuckiness)

oh, and coach P is a classy guy. dispite this obviously being a heated series, he's giving avery high fives after beating his team. i mean, after a loss like that, i'm sure he wanted to get the hell out of there... their enthusiasm for one another kinda makes this series endearing (much unlike the spurs series' of the past, and especially unlike the Sacremento series' used to be... you know, back then they mattered)

lets start a weshotjr street hoops league. beards vs skins.

I'm sure most of you saw Dirk throw some smack-talk at Stack after the game? "What the hell was he thinking", or something like that. Ha.

Stack has devolved into a 6th-grade retard in the last minute of the games 1 and 3.

re: sam's comment:

yeah, dirk talking shit about stack was priceless..."he's been in the league ten years, you'd think he would know the rules".

looks like dirk finally grew a sack, and has become (somewhat of) a leader.
