Dear Lord, I'm not adult enough for this! Insane basketball!!!

Question: HOW can ANYONE in their right mind say the Dallas Mavericks are outmatched by the Heat?

4 games, all close, and a tied series. However this series turns out, it's time for people to eat their words and recognize the Mavericks as one helluva talented team...one that is just as good as the Heat. Come on. Grow some and man-up to all who downed my Mavs. 

Dirk.  Our beloved Dirk.  He played bad-sick tonight, fighting through a 101-102 temperature. Doctors unsuccessfully tried to bring his temp down prior to the game. Chandler said they watched him and he was barely able to talk because of the wheezing and coughing.  I confess, I got a little teary watching him battle on--he's a humble warrior.  The rest of the team stepped up and gave him the support he needed.

Terry, Chandler, JJ, Kidd, Stevenson...everyone played GRITTY-TOUGH.

Mavs bench outscored the Heat bench, 28-15. 

This team played a phenomenal defensive 4th quarter--I mean, did y'all see that? It was about as perfect as you can get, forcing Heat turnovers and holding Miami to 14. 

At the very end, it appeared as though Terry looked up at Dirk and said, "I got you." THIS is a team. 

I've said it before, and I'll say it again and again...it all comes down to heart. There is nothing more powerful than heart and believing.  Nothing. 


*slightly teary-eyed* GO MAVS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


  1. YAY!!! It was a great game! Congrats!!!

  2. Yay! Yay! Yay! Gooooooo MAVS!

  3. Yvonne: It was insanely good, but, I tell you, my gut can't take much more!!! LOL

    Chanel: Whoo hoo! GOOOOOOOOO MAVS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  4. I never watch basketball, but I made the exception just to cheer for the Mavs so that you can smile. That is a lie, I was out and the game was on. It was a rollercoaster, glad they won. Even if I only cared because you do. lol.

  5. I got to watch the game! I was a nervous wreck for you Frisky Virgin! The Mavs are a GREAT team! go Mavs go!

  6. It was a great game. I only got to watch the second half because I was watching the USA soccer game but what I did get to see was great.

  7. It was a wonderful game! I was really impressed with Chandler! (so much so, I wish the Celtics would snatch him up for next year!) I have to give credit to Dwayne Wade, and Bosch (even though I don't care for Bosch at all).

    I was very impressed also with Terry and Kidd. Poor Kirk. He was amazing, even though he didn't feel well. Hope he's feeling better by Thursday!

  8. You are my go to all things sports, since I barely watch the news anymore. :)

  9. Sweetie, you've got enough heart and soul (and faith) for the whole team! How can anything go wrong with you in their corner!? Go FV!! Go Mavs!!

  10. Not The Hero: You are a sweetheart! That made my day! Thank you so much! I think your extra cheering helped pull them through. ;)

    Carole: lol Nervous wreck pretty much sums it up! Thank you so much for cheering them on! I think all of the extra support they are getting is working some magic!!!

    OT: It really was a great game!!! That's Mavs basketball for you!

    Eva: LOL--Chandler was unbelievable! Wade IS the Miami Heat. He's been amazing (i.e. the thorn in our side). I loved when Terry said to Dirk--"I got you." Dirk has said he'll be better for tonight's game--it broke my heart watching him play sick.

    PorkStar: :) Happy to help. I love my sports.

    Mrs. B: *big smiles* and *hugs* Thank you so much! GO MAVS!!!!!
