    I'm not a Heat nor a Lebron hater, but Soonernate has me headed in that direction...

    Re: Mavs Talk

    I like the Heat, I like Lebron, I actually like the fact that Lebron had the stones to leave his home state Cavs despite the pressure to stay, knowing that they would NEVER win a title. I do dislike the way he handled it.

    Oh Yea, I Love the Thunder!

    That is really not my intention honestly. I am just fired up about this team. Since Shaq left we haven't given Wade any help. We tried the Beasley route and that didn't work. I'm just glad he's finally got some tools around him. He's too good a player to have to carry 100% of the load for a bunch of slubs.

    Don't think you can put the playoff struggles on Dirk...If anything, he usually ups his game come playoff time....I think he is one of like 4 guys whose playoff average is 25 points and 11 rebounds.

    Roy was unstoppable in the 4th quarter, but the Mavs didn't do themselves any favors by turning the ball over and settling for 3 pointers in the 4th quarter. Absolutely pathetic on their parts, I'll admit that. It really was a horrific combination of Portland winning the game and the Mavs losing it simultaneously.

    I'd like to think if we had a healthy Butler available, this series would have gone much differently, but now I'm not sure. If the Mavs don't come out tomorrow night completely pissed off about what just happened and stomp on Portlands throats and somehow manage to lose a 3rd in a row, then the psyche of this team is shot and Portland will win this thing in 6.

    It's just so frustrating as a fan at this point to watch them b/c they obviously have the talent and you see the flashes of brilliance. The 3rd quarter of that game was some of, if not the best, basketball the Mavs have played all season.

    Has anyone ever stopped to think that maybe he doesn't get too involved on the defensive side because the Mavs cannot afford to have him in any kind of foul trouble? With the addition of Stevens and Chandler, the last thing this team's mindset is, is soft.

    I would love to see the thunder do what the Mavs are doing without Westbrook, or the Spurs without Ginobli. My point is, the Mavs held the 3 seed and have managed to win 2 games against a much stronger opponent in Portland without its second best player.

    Ahh thats who I thought you were referencing. I would have to disagree that they are a tougher opponent to face than Denver, but neither is an easy out

    I just feel the Mavs would have matched up better against the thuggets. Once billups and anthony left the only player that ever worked the Mavs was smith. The west is nuts this year. At this point, the top 3 seeds are either tied in their series or down 1. This is shaping up well for the Thunder though for sure. If the Mavs lose tonight, they are done and at that point I'm all in for OKC and New Orleans. Anyone but the lakers, heat, and celtics. I would like to see OKC vs. Chicago championship....if of course the Mavs are out :-)

    I think if Dirk only could have stopped growing at 6'9" he would have been better served and could have spent his career at the 3 in stead of at the 4. If there is a position on the floor where you don't have to be the best defensively, it is SF, where as PF is arguably one of the most important positions defensively.

    Dirk has never been a great defender...His post up defense isn't terrible, and he'll make a play to slap the ball out of their hands as they go up for a shot, but if it is a guy driving to the basket with a full head of steam, you can pretty much go ahead and count it as a bucket. It's pretty rare that he goes up to really contest those plays, which is frustrating.

    That is what was different about the team at the beginning of this year when you had Stevenson, Chandler, and Butler on the floor with him and then Marion to come off the bench. All of them were able to counter whatever defensive shortfalls Dirk and Kidd hade. Unfortunately Butler is out, and Stevenson just doesn't get the minutes he once did b/c his shot isn't as consistent anymore.

    Doesn't really matter who the Mavs played this year, b/c when you really think about it, they aren't playing Portland, they are playing against themselves....To me they have shown they are the better team than Portland in this series, but those ghosts of playoffs past have started to haunt them again. The Mavs are just their own worst enemy at this point, as what happened in game 4 could only happen to the Mavs....Any other team in the league would have won the game.

    There just has been key moments in each series since Miami when the Mavs have some catastrophic event that puts a hole in their boat and they can't plug the hole until it is too late and they are underwater. That has been what has really hurt the Mavs is once they encounter that event, that they have been unable to bounce back from it and stop the boat from sinking.

    My hopes are high that they come out tonight pissed off and dominate Portland the whole night and they can begin to exercise some of those playoff demons.
