Another Mav's lo....wait, What?
The Mav's beat a their first playoff caliber team with J.Kidd.
J-Ho and JET combined for 59 points.(59?)
Last night saw a "rebirth" of Mav's basketball with their 111 to 86 win over the Golden State Warriors. Its a "rebirth" because its the first time since the Kidd trade they beat a team thats over 500. Its a "rebirth" because it gives us now a 2 game lead over the 9th seed with only 7 games left to play. Its a "rebirth" because, for the first time in a long time, they won the battle of whits against Nelly.
What does all this mean? I don't know. It could mean they are getting their shit in line and are going to start playing like the team as talented as they are, or it could be the last ghasp in for the little Mav's this season.
One thing it did do, is almost certainly punch a titcket back to the playoffs. With 7 games left, they have what amounts to a 3 game lead over Golden State. You take away the will wins, home Seattle, @Portland, @Seattle, that leaves you with just 4 games they could lose. If GS drops just one or two more, it will be almost imposible to catch the Mavs.
So gear up for somemore basketball people. Don't quit on this team yet(like I almost did).
