Two simple, casual thoughts from a simple, casual basketball fan:
1. I know this is a "must win" game for the Mavericks tonight, but isn't it kind of a must win game for the Heat, too, given that it's virtually impossible to win a Game 7 on the road, in pretty much any sport?
2. I'm glad that the series is back in Dallas, if only for the reason that the player introductions in Miami were some of the most annoying and obnoxious intros I've ever seen and heard. Their PA guy sucked, and they were way too long. The other night, when the national anthem started up, I went for a piss, and then fixed myself a drink, came back, and they were still in the middle of introducing the HEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEeeeeeeeeeaaaaat.
Sorry; nobody's intros will ever be as good as the Jordan-era Bulls intros were. No sense in trying to top them.
Despite the "TO call" last night, it really shouldn't have even come to that. The Mavs missed 3 of their last 4 foul shots (Dampier and Howard) and basically gave the game away. Even Shaq was 2-2 in the final minute foul shots in game 3, and he's a disaster on the foul line.
This series demonstrates the vast anti-German conspiracy that has been showcased by NBA officials over the past few years. The officials concocted a plot against Dirk Nowitzki before the Finals even began, and became angry when they could not alter the results of games 1 and 2, and are now coming full throttle at the Mavs in the closing minutes of each game to ensure that the Heat win.
Ball or not, an ejection was not warranted.
It stopped being a sweep two nights ago.
