Lord, give me strength! I tell y'all, this series is going to test my very last nerve. While up by more than 20, that pesky (translation: super talented) Thunder group clawed to within single digits.  Thought I was gonna hurl. 

Thankfully, the Mavs held them off and won 93-87.

Dirk had an off night (he's human, folks), but he still came through in the clutch to help hold off the Thunder. 

We won't talk about the refs.

Overall, our defense played much better, setting the tone of the game in the first half.  Though the second half was tough, the Mavs pushed through, made some big plays, and earned the win.

Next need for furious back and forth pacing: Monday, 9 p.m. EST. 

Big sports day overall:

Horse Racing--Animal Kingdom came up just short in the Preakness, losing to Shackleford. No chance for a Triple Crown this year. Still, it was a beautiful stretch run by Animal Kingdom, considering how far he had to come.

NASCAR: Carl Edwards won the Sprint All-Star race tonight, earning a cool million dollars in the process.

Well, I've worn a groove in the floor, made my throat hoarse, and had a soda (very bad).  Time to remove myself from the ceiling and relax...with water.


  1. Congrats on the Mav's win! Hubby placed a tiny wager on Animal Kingdom, just for the heck of it. Oh well, Ya can't win 'em all, right? We have a thoroughbred race season very close by every August and we try to make it to the track at least once or twice during that time.

    We rarely win much of anything, but it's exciting to see those beautiful creatures as they run past. (the hats are a lot of fun too!)

    Have a super week my dear!
    XOXO, Mrs B

  2. The close victories are always the best, though. Nobody wants to win by twenty points! Where's the fun in that?

  3. Mavs played a great game. Thunder almost came back there near the end!

  4. You'd better keep a bucket close by for the next game! Go Mavs!

  5. Yvonne: Yee-haw!

    Mrs. B.: They are beautiful to watch run. Animal Kingdom gave it his all.

    Chanel: When its my team...I prefer the 20 point lead. lol Any other team, and a close game is super fun.

    kitkat: :) Yay back!

    Eva: Mavs played tough...and the Thunder played tough. Think that's the theme of the series: tough.

    Carole: LOL Seriously!
