    Don't take my words out of context. I said "not to say he's not playing great." I just want him to take over and just have the ball on every possession. He already proved in game 1 how unstoppable he is if he keeps gettin' attempts.

    And, some of y'all need to stop acting like it's over saying so and so cust us. LOTS OF TIME! IT'S FINE!

    I CAN'T SAY ENOUGH HOW HUGE JON BARRY IS TONIGHT! WOOOOO!!!

    4 3'S

    You can see their depth showing now, their guys are ALL scorers, they can put 5 scorers/shooters at the same time. Who are you going to guard? Pick your poison.

    Wesley knocks down some of his shots, and MJames plays better offensively, and Sura not making those dumb mistakes in the 1st half mainly, and we would be in control this game.

    But that is the difference: their shooters are too reliable most of the time, and ours are 50-50 chance they show up.

    The rebounding edge for them on the offensive end is killing us.

    They are harassing T-Mac, and he is still having a pretty solid game.

    Yao was doing great, but fatigue sat in as is expected. Yao will be back in in a few minutes, we just have to keep it close a bit

    JVG's biggest mistake tonight was that he should have played Barry more when Wesley struggled badly on the offensive end.

    BTW, Dirk is officially a p*ssy.

    Look at it this way. Now they believe they can hit the 3 down the stretch. That may help us. We just need to keep those guards out of the paint.

    The Mavs can't keep hitting every shot, they will go cold when it counts, and TMac will take over the game!

    Hopefully, the Mavs leave Stackhouse in the game. He'll stop the ball movement, and try to go one-on-one.

    I just wish that Yao could be a BIG presence on the floor like

    Deke is! If/when he could do that he'll be the best Center in the

    league! ;)

    Barry had to come out for a while because he hurt his nose on Deke's knee.

    The Rockets are just now down 1 after barry hit that 3. They're main thing is to settle down on most of their remaining possesions because we definitely don't want a fast flowing game where they play the swarming defense on them and that they're quickly running down the court and releasing the three before the defense is set. Just play good defense and don't lose the composure.
