 and Westbrook's bitchass was the recipient of some favorable officiating on both ends of the court in the first half.  Stevenson deserves a bit of shit too but he at least had a difficult defensive assignment with Durant.   Expected more out of Terry for damn sure.  Back to Marion, damn, he just looked shitty and old out there.

 Dallas and OKC are both really good.   Those fucking spoogie noodles kept talking about bringing Westbrook back in the game, shit, I wish they did!!   The Mavs could have used his hasty shot selection or shitty passing late in the game.

Dirk was not aggressive AT ALL for 3 quarters.. also the Thunder just hit a bunch of great/tough shots in the 4th quarter.

GO MAVS!

 This series is basically about who can score the most.

The difference is i think Dallas actually can play defense from time to time, but they don't when they are shooting well. OKC never plays good D, they have to score to win, much like the old Mavs and Suns.

LOL @ choke coming because dallas lost one playoff game after winning the last seven or so. Do you think that OKC's bench will continue to provide those numbers? I personally dont. I think our coach got out coached when OKC decided to bring in 3 guards to counter kidd and stevenson staying on durant. Dirk wasn't fast enough to get back to cover the 3 point shooting guard that OKC stuck out there and it paid off.

To think that that game means Dallas is choking is foolish talk from a douche who has no dog in the fight because his dog is worm food, imo.

the OKC bench was amazing but i don't expect them to be that good every game (harden will be the only consistent one imo). dallas had a chance at the end of the game to make a run but failed to hit shots.

 Actually I think Dallas failed to make stops. 

Taking Westbrook out was a good move for the Thunder, but if they do that again expect more ball pressure from Dallas. It will be successful.

I said somewhere around 06 or 07 that Marion would lose alot of what made him an allstar when he lost those pogo stick hops and quicks.

That happened somewhere between Miami and Toronto, but he did well enough in his new role in dallas as a defferring role player.

Its just too bad that so much of his game was predicated on just a facet of athleticism (in PHX:his inside scoring, obscene rebound numbers, abilities to dunk/catch and finish esp oops, run the break, play the passing lanes, and be a lockdown defender) He could jump and was fast as hell, and his ability to make the most of those attributes are what made him an allstar instead of a meddling roleplayer. Which I promise, he wouldve been his whole career without.

And as far as the original post, Marion actually looked good tonight.

Monsters Ball - I'm starting to wonder if Dallas isn't as good as I thought.

Kept that one in the holster a full 4 days did you? :)

Honestly, I left for a trip on Friday, and just came back at 2am today... this post did bother me, initially, and I wish I had mustered the courage to make my statement sooner.

Good day, sir.
