We're not going to lie, we were crapping our pants when BDizzle pulled that hammy 5 minutes into the game. Not to mention his knee was killing him. But something about this team and these fans said "we ain't losing." All of us were hoping Davis could pull a Willis Reed, but he did way more than that. He truly had one of the all time epic playoff performances in this series and in this game. And you know what, so did the Warriors fans. For those three home games, it was INSANE at the Arena.
Meanwhile Stephen "Dead Eye" Jackson was the man, hitting 7 threes and going for 33. J-Rich, Barnes and Biedrins were also clutch as hell. If you had told us before going into this game that the Warriors would absolutely blow out the Mavs even though Baron Davis pulled his hammy shortly after tipoff, we would have said you're nuts.
But that 18-0 run in the third quarter absolutely killed the Mavs. They never recovered, you could see it on their faces. Meanwhile, Nowitzki was beyond awful, going for only 8 pts. I think we need to reroute that MVP trophy immediately to Baron Davis.
We've also gotta tip our hat to Nellie, who totally outcoached Avery, and got his extremely sweet revenge on Cuban. We knew we had the Mavs from the first game when Avery switched up his starting lineup.
Best of all about this Game 6, there will be no ref conspiracy theories. The Mavericks simply got CRUSHED, and that's all she wrote.
Now, it's time for us to call out all of those who called us crazy (and much worse things) for picking the Warriors to win this series. I was a bit off, since I said the Warriors would win in 7. Meanwhile Dwyermaker revised his in 7 pick to 6 early in the series. We're also going to send a huge shout out to Dan Shanoff who also picked the Warriors to win this series as well.
Below are some of the best insults people threw at us for picking the Warriors before the series began.
"The only way the Warriors will win, 100% injury rate."
"are you high?"
"Nellie's teams have NEVER proved to be effective in the playoffs against quality competition."
"LMAO, you're too delusional."
"Have you ever watched the Mavs outside of GS games?"
"Wow. You have got to be the most ignorant basketball fan in the history of the game. Golden State doesn't play defense, they've never been in the playoffs, and we ALL know that how you play leading up to the playoffs doesn't mean squat once you're in."
"Mavs in 6 at worst."
We appreciate the comments guys. But look who's laughing now. We are. Enjoy your summer Mavs fans. I'm sure that MVP trophy that Herr Luftball gets will help ease the pain. Oh wait, no it won't.
