Phew! Good game...a little too good at times, according to my nervy tummy.

The Mavericks rusty? Nah. The Thunder simply would not go away--they kept coming and coming--but the Mavs kicked into another gear. 

JJ Barea. Did you see those shots? Unreal!  He's so much fun to watch! JJ put up 21 points tonight.  Jason Terry made a big three towards the end, scoring 24 on the night.

Shawn Marion is a soldier.  After taking an elbow to the nose, Marion writhed in pain on the court, yet marched right back out there once the trainer cleaned (and plugged) him up. 

The highlight of the night had to be Dirk: 24 of 24 free throws; 48 total points; 4 blocks.  Tonight, Dirk set an NBA playoff record for free throws made without a miss (24).  Tonight, Dirk showed, yet again, why he is one of the best players in the history of the game.  For me, he's an absolute joy to watch play...wish I could shake his hand.

What could this feeling be? Might it be...satisfied? Yes, I do believe it is...but I want more. I'm being a little saucy tonight, huh? Hormones and sports--interesting combo.

Game 2 will be Thursday at 9 EST.

GO MAVS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


  1. Since my hockey team is out of the playoffs I have to say Congrats to you that your team is still playing. It is no surprise that I have no love for basketball but anyone as excited about a team/wins as you are deserves kudos! :) Yay Mavs!

  2. I missed the game....things are still a little crazy here....but congrats to your Mavs!

  3. Cool, I missed the game because I forgot about it.

  4. I have no idea about them, but yay! ; )

  7. All the Vancouver Canuck fans are getting pretty excited here in BC! Even my mom-in-law is watching them play!

  8. I am so happy they won!! I could only catch the last 2 quarters of the game but boy were both teams playing amazing. Dirk definitely had one hell of a night and I agree he is a joy to watch :D

  9. Carole: Oh, I know! I'm keeping up with it as well! It's very exciting!!!

    Somnia: They really had an amazing night--Dirk was phenomenal! They lost tonight, though. :( This could go to a game seven if both teams keep playing like this...Oh, Lord, my nerves will ragged! lol
