Dallas – Oklahoma City

We’ve just gotten in from dinner and we’re watching the Mavericks and Oklahoma City.

After an Oklahoma 7-0 run, its 94-94 with 1:27 left.

After a mad scramble on the floor, Ian Mahimi, a STIFF comes in and makes two free throws. It’s 96-94, Dallas, with 1:03 left.

I’m sure Dirk Nowitski is a very nice man, and I’m sure he’s a class act, but everything I see from him screams gigantic douchebag like the team owner.

And by the way, Chicago is going to play out the playoffs without Derrick Rose. The reigning MVP tore his ACL at the end of a game they had wrapped up. Against the 76ers, it doesn’t matter but Chicago can’t compete with the Heat for the Eastern Conference without Rose.

Now Oklahoma leads by one with 24 seconds left, Dallas has the ball. Of course, Nowitski gets fouled. Of course, he goes to the line. Of course, he makes both, and its 98-97, Dallas. Timeout, Oklahoma.

Oklahoma inbounds to Durant. He’s 1-on-1 versus Maid Marion. Swoops to the left, throws up a runner, bounces on the rim high into the air and it’s good! 1.5 seconds left and Dallas has no timeouts. Inbound pass to Marion, he drives but doesn’t even get a shot off in time. Oklahoma wins, 99-98.

Dallas has to be confident. They went into Oklahoma and lost by one, on a play that’s too close to a miracle. They are the defending champions. It might be a lengthy series.

About bittersportspills

I love sports. I don't love the hype, homerism, ratings talk, self-important egomaniacs, bias or any of the other nonsense you get with the national media. Nor will you get the two clowns on sports talk radio who stage phony arguments. It doesn't make it entertaining. It makes it time to turn on your iPod and jam instead of listening to white noise generators. This is the sports blog for you, the ones who don't like everything Los Angeles or New York. Just because the sporting media is based there doesn't mean we have to like their teams. We do treat them fairly, though. That means if one of those cities has an average QB who plays particularly well...we'll note it. If they're garbage, we'll say so. Instead of crying "why, why, why" like a certain sports media homer did in his radio broadcast. This isn't my job...I have a real one. Nevertheless, I'll post here when I make an observation. Common sense in sports is nearly dead. Now we're attempting to bring it back.
