Argh. At least LA has some representation.

ludo21 05-07-2006 12:58 PM

time for Laker fans to jump on to the Clippers bandwagon it seems....Ha!

must be nice having 2 teams in the town so you can pick and choose.

GonzoLays 05-07-2006 01:20 PM

I will watch with much pleasure as the Spurs once again take out the Mavs in the playoffs. Maybe the Mavericks should make second round T-shirts to commemorate the achievement.

Dirk will be exposed again as a one trick jump shooter in the playoffs. We can only hope he throws another hissy fit on the court and starts yelling at Jet Terry. Because as we all know, Dirk does not handle the pressure of the playoffs very well.

Heck ya! LOL :thanku: Why do you think we want 2 NFL teams? :strong: :approve:

Fun game, Mavs looked lost on the offensive side of the ball.

ludo21 05-07-2006 01:39 PM

Didnt they JUST come out of a TO???

Stackhouse is a vet as well, what an idiot!

RhymesayersDU 05-07-2006 01:50 PM

I cannot believe the balls that Stackhouse has. Steps back to the 3-point line? Yikes. As was stated by the guys calling the game, he should have just taken the 2-pointer.

Great game. All Maverick/angryllama smack aside, I thought this would be the game the Mavs could take, with them being very well rested after their sweep, and SA coming off a game on Friday. There might be some concern that they dropped it.

I think the Mavs will win it. I really think that Avery Johnson just got outcoached the last 5 minutes though. The Spurs got some really good looks and should have beaten them worse.

Avery hasnt gotten that art down yet. He doesnt know how to effectively work the refs like Pop and the Whiny Floppers do, and he isnt getting favorable matchups for his players down the stretch. That last play was called for Stackhouse. Why go to that guy when Terry and Dirk have been so great late for Dallas? stackhouse rewarded his trust by stepping back into an impossible shot when he could have easily found Josh Howard standing right beside him.

Avery will have to start being more assertive with the officials. Watching a Spurs game is like watching the old buddy Spurs and their old buddy officials have a conference on how they can circumvent fair play to get the officiating advantage. Avery needs to consistently get in there and bust that stuff up. He needs to let the refs know that he's there too, and that when his guys break down the perimeter only to get slammed in the restricted area by the rotating defenders, that they need to get the same calls that the Spurs get. This game was so close that every one of those plays matter. If Avery needs to get a tech to make his point, then that's what he needs to do.

The Mavs were in position to take game 1 on the road. The flubbed up a last second play (Stack is an idiot), and lost. The Mavs did look rusty and the Spurs looked crisp. For the Mavs to win the series, they are going to need better showings from Dirk, Howard, and Terry who all had sub-par second halves on the offensive end. Dirk had a great game rebounding and defending, but he's going to have to start getting to the line more if his shot is not falling. His team needs him to score too. Howard and Dirk both had excellent first halves. Terry just never showed up.

Howard completely disappeared in the second half. He has this really bad habit of being an unpredictably streaky player. His streak ended when the second half whistle blew. He rebounded well for his position and played okay on Ginobili, but he's got to be the guy that takes advantage of the mismatch afforded with Horry covering him on the perimeter. This matchup will decide the series. His 5 turnovers beat Dallas. They need him to beat his man and get to the basket, not lose the ball on traveling violations and bad handling displays.

Good game right now, Suns winning, but Clipps can get right back in it with the Suns D.

GOO SUNSS!

SoCalBronco 05-08-2006 11:07 PM

Brand is raping, but the Suns look like they will win this one.

Yeah i knew he would, we have no post player to guard him. But he can go off and as long as we contain Sam and the rest, we should do well in this series.

yavoon 05-08-2006 11:26 PM

its possible the suns will torch the regular season next year. man thats gna be one amazing regular season team.

amare
kurt
marion
raja
nash

first wave of subs:
diaw
barbosa
house

though if they replaced house I wouldn't cry. his greatest attribute is he can shoot off the dribble, but man he jacks up so many shots.

im not that far yet. Im still enjoying this season, the POST season.

They have a great chance to get to the Conf Finals, and once they get there, who knows???

Great win tonight, take care of home court this time.

Finger Roll 05-08-2006 11:31 PM

and barbosa and maybe Tim Thomas off the bench. They'll be awsome.

yah well unfortunately that defense they wont win the big prize. next year though they get 1 proven inside defender(kurt) and 1 guy who should be great but isnt that dedicated to defense yet(amare).

yeah, if they keep Kurt around.....and i hope they do... they will have a real solid front court.

Still no true Center, but o well.

I'm not sure what u mean true center. u mean defensive shot blocker? amare could be. u mean 1on1 post defender? kurt or amare can. now amare is more potential than reality right now, so it will be interesting to see how much he cares about defense w/ the suns.

ludo21 05-08-2006 11:43 PM

Amare doesnt like guarding Centers. And he considers himself a PF. Just like Marion doesnt like guarding big guys.

But thats the way it is, and as Amare is just about dont growing, he should be a lot bigger next year and be able to step up and play the bigger Centers in this league.

yah well amare needs to suck it the **** up. he doesnt "like" guarding centers? he's a frigging manchild freak of nature and he's still a p***Y!

sides his face up game is more dominating vs centers than it is vs other quicker PF's.

yavoon 05-09-2006 12:05 AM

seriously though they can do it like this next year. let kurt guard the talented post player and let amare guard the bad one. even though this can be the center quite often I dont see what there is to complain about.

Officiating advantage, the Free throws were almost even, the Mavs shot 28 and the Spurs shot 30.

And the Spurs didnt play a crisp game, were we watching the same game?

And Mark Cuban does enough whining to the refs to make up for the AJ's lack of yelling at the refs.

Stop this nonsense about the officiating, what is it with Mavs fans. They almost won game 1 and despite not playing their best game and have a great chance to win this series but please stop making this into an officiating thing.

Darkhawk24 05-09-2006 08:35 AM

I was rooting for whomever played the Lakers. Now I just watch when I'm waiting for Sports Center to come on.

I'll count how many times the Spurs pull the "who, me?" foul conference after fouls and we'll compare them after the game. Maybe I'll also tabulate Ginobili and Bowen flops.
