    Can you really blame Stack for costing them Game 4? He was insanely hot early in the 4th quarter. I don't think it's his fault that Dirk was choking down the stretch.

    I'm not totally blaming Stack; he (and a number of bad calls from the refs sending him to the line) did carry the Mavs during a long stretch in the mid-second half.

    But it's not a coincidence that time and time again a hot Stack goes ice-cold when the game gets past the half-way mark of the 4th; we've seen it time and time again when Stack was dribbling off his foot and missing key free throws in Detroit. And I'm sure that Avery Johnson's seen Stack melt down under pressure several times in the playoffs before, if he's actually watching the games he's coaching. Yet he continues to trust Stack as a creator in the clutch, even above players like Dirk (he may not demand the shot like he should but he's not a choker) and the truly dangerous clutch shooter Terry.

    Why, you weren't happy with the data I supplied? I worked hard for that data. And this is the thanks I get?

    Do your own data.

    This is all YOUR fault Roscoe. Everyone is irritable because you made us pick Toronto over Jersey. :captain:

    Hey, if that one guy's ankle wouldn't have broken into a thousand pieces, the Raps would probably still be competitive.

    Garbajosa has been a big part of the Raps successes. He's a utility guy. He will board, make passes, get physical, hit an open jumper.

    For a young team, having a 30 year old with Olympic Gold Medal experience is a big plus.

    A little over 6 minutes in, and the Mavs are on pace to score about 200 points. We'll see how the Warriors react to this onslaught.

    Warriors staying in it.

    I usually don't mind players complaining, but to watch that little flopping Jerry Seinfeld clone
    whine about being called for an obvious loose ball foul is a bit much.

    The playoffs will get a lot better when the Mavs and Suns are knocked out.

    Warriors will have a tough time staying in it if Pietrus keeps missing 1-footers.

    The Mavericks should have about 15 fouls this quarter going by the rules Cuban helped institute.

    The Warriors aren't helping themselves with these shots, but the Dallas hacking is getting out of control.

    Warriors squandering chances. Showing their inexperience.

    Vintage Nellieball.

    Golden State may as well pull Baron and Jackson right now and hope their team can get cooler heads and better referees in Game 6.

    We can see here why the Warriors' style of play isn't the stuff that champions are made of. When they're on, they're pretty great, but get them a bit off their game and the result can be an avalanche of turnovers, forced shots that don't go down, and almost constant wide open looks for the other team.
