What a game last night! Now this is exactly what playoff basketball is about. Dirk Nowitzki of the Dallas Mavs put on a show last night for the ages….not only did he have 48 points, but he shot an astonishing 12-15 from the field & 24-24 from the foul line! Are you kidding me? That’s nothing short of amazing! Now I have been one to be highly critical of Dirk in the past, but after this performance, I am starting a question my opinion a bit. Let’s see if he can keep up the pace in Game 2.
Now, for where the big dogs play…the Eastern Conference. I will be totally honest, this is my blog and I will make it known (probably more than once or twice) that I hated “The Decision” this past summer. Make no mistake that LBJ is one of the elite players, but he will have to dig deep to overcome the defensive mastermind of Tom Thibodeau. The first game was a slugfest, but the Bulls came to play from long range: connecting on over 10 treys. Will Miami be up to the task? Game 2 is tonight!
