Avery is coaching against the master of adjustments and gimmick lineups, and obviously a coach who knows the Mavs' weaknesses quite well.

This is on the verge of a monumental embarassment, under the old 3 of 5 first round system, it would be over now. Quite intriguing.
If the Mavs lose this series, do they blow it all up? Clearly this is a team built for regular season wins, but lacks the mental and physical toughness needed for success in the post season.


When is that lottery?

so sad... i love dirk, but man... he's soft. he's a second tier player.

great players put their team on their back when faced with adversity and carry them through. dirk needs to do this. he needs one of those 40 point, 15 rebound, 8 assist games that he is more than capable of getting. otherwise it's bye bye dallas.

if the mavs lose, more so than the team getting broken up, does cuban sell and concentrate more on his efforts to buy the cubs?

the suns look primed to get over the hump and into the finals, amare being the difference (and a huge difference) between this year and last.

a suns vs. warriors matchup would be drool-worthy... 142-138 final scores

golden state probably should be a 5 or 6 seed... but they haven't played together until the final month of the season due to injuries, trades, etc.

the rockets need to trade mcgrady... send him to seattle (or vegas?) for jesus shuttlesworth. that or find a true point to put with yao and mcgrady that can set t-mac up better and feed yao, 'cause mcgrady just takes too many stupid jumpers. there is a reason why he's never gotten out of the first round.

the jazz have looked tough... diamond rejoices.

luol deng is the breakout star of the first round... well, along with the reemergance of baron davis as a froce.

the heat need to blow up the ship... it's over, stick a fork in 'em. shaq's still good but not 20+ million good and i've never been a wade fan. as shaq gets worse, it'll be harder and harder for wade to get his own shot. teams will force him to shoot, which he doesn't do well.

cleveland may complete the worst sweep of all time tonight... playing a wizards team without their two best players, yet the wizards have hung in every single game. if they play like this against new jersey, and new jersey plays the way they've played against toronto, cleveland's going home in 5 (or maybe 6).

the bulls smoked miami. is miami old? or did chicago just make 'em look old? who knows... but they won't be able to out-run detroit. an eastern conference semi that's almost worth watching... what's the world coming to.

i've gotta go with suns-detroit for the finals, with phoenix winning it all... but man would i love to see nash & kidd go head to head for the title.

I agree and I would love to see Golden State whoop the suns ass. So Chuck can shut up.

golden state is doing well against the mav's because dallas's big's can't keep up with the warriors & nelly knows everything the mav's do.

they will not have the same advantages if they ever end up meeting phoenix in the conference finals... phoenix's bigs are just as quick, if not more so.

by chuck do you mean charles barkley? what does he have to do with anything?

Upchuck?


I'd like to see Tim Duncan whoop everyone's ass b/c he's so exciting to watch! His expression on the court makes every game fun to watch!


T-Mac has established himself as another player with so much athleticism, but absolutely no knowledge of how to win.

Carlos Boozer is big.

I'm Philk and I'm out.

If the warriors knock off the mavs, is that the greatest upset in NBA playoff history?

it will be considered as such, but the warriors shouldn't be an 8 seed, so, um, maybe
