Everyone thought the game was over in the fourth quarter. Everyone except that guy above in the picture. Mark Cuban’s Dallas Mavericks had a secret weapon that while effective had not been eclectic all game. Dirk Nowitzki would not be denied and showed why he not Rose, Wade or James should be the Playoff MVP.
He hit shot after shot in the last minutes of the fourth quarter and the overtime. There was the block shot by Shawn Marion and the smart heads up play by Jason Kidd to call a time out. Jason Kidd who had not been shooting also hit a clutch three pointer.
With the series now 3-1 in favor of the Mavericks should we be counting them out? In a word, yes. They are too young to win 3 in a row against a team that is so well put together. Dallas has Dirk and home court. Kevin Durant near tears said it best with body language.
With his words he said we lost. It’s not so much what he said it’s how he said it and how he looked. His body language shows a man that looked defeated before the next game even starts. Unlike Kobe who said everyone was trippin. Durant was honest. They lost but will try again.
