I thought the Lakers and Mavs were evenly matched before the series. The Lakers didn't convert their opportunities to win games 1 and 3, and of course, the Mavs did the right things in all 4 games.
I've not seen the Lakers having to run around the court so much on their rotations, and the Mavs still got really good open looks. The defense was awful while Dirk and the bench seemed unstoppable. It was obvious the Mavs were the better team in this series and not the Lakers unable to play to their potential. It was tough watching four games with nothing positive Laker-wise to come out of them.
It $uck$ Lamar and Andrew lost their cool. I wonder if there's anything inside the locker room we're not hearing. It was interesting to see Phil/Pau and Phil/Lamar go at it on the sidelines, and Andrew making his trust issues comments after game 3. Losing causes strange things I guess.
It'll be interesting to see how next year works out for the purple and gold.
