Rick Carlisle said Dirk Nowitzki just banged knees with someone, but that he should be fine.
Interesting fact: Russell Westbrook has attempted 94 more free throws than Serge Ibaka despite playing in 35 fewer games.
Also, losses by Chicago & Toronto mean Mavs have 10th best record in NBA and will therefore convey 21st pick to OKC (was top 20 protected)
Games tonight make it 436 wins for the 8 West playoff teams, most in field in West since playoffs expanded in 1984. Mavs earned their way in
If necessary, Game 5 will be Apr. 30 at the SAS. Game 6 is May 2 in Dallas. Game 7 is May 4 at the SAS.
Dirk says he ran into Marc Gasol's knee brace like four times and now has a bruise on his knee, hence the sleeve. He's not concerned.
Mavs Spurs sked is: Sunday at Noon, Wed at 7, Sat at 330, Monday 4/28 at 830. Then Wed, Fri, Sun for 5, 6 & 7. Times TBD
Thanks to all MFFLs for tuning in this season. I know u have a choice in playoff games. Hope you'll continue to check us out on TXA21
The rest of the 1st round schedule will be out for Mavs v Spurs later this evening. When I get I will share of course.
Dave Joerger ties Hubie Brown (50-32 in 03-04) for best record in club history in 1st full season. Brown took over 28-win team. Joerger 56.
And the East: 1 Pacers vs 8 Hawks 2 Heat vs 7 Bobcats 3 Raptors vs 6 Nets 4 Bulls vs 5 Wizards
We'll have game 1 of Mavs at San Antonio on TXA21. Again Noon CT on Sunday.
The West is set: 1 Spurs vs 8 Mavs 2 Thunder vs 7 Grizzlies 3 Clippers vs 6 Warriors 4 Rockets vs 5 Portland >>Some potential there, eh?
Game 1 for Mavs and Spurs is Sunday at Noon CT
Mike Conley wins w/ 2 FT w/ 1.1 seconds. Grizz 106-105 in OT. Mavs end year at 49-33. (1-5) in OT games
Monta Ellis had a good open look on that last shot.
A third timeout, a :20, called by Vince Carter before inbounding. Dallas out of timeouts. One chance to get in and fire. 1.1 sec lef.
Seriously, it was a great coast-to-coast by Conley. You create, drive hard, you get fouled.
Unbelievable finish to the season. Dallas calls a 2nd timeout. Again: Down 1. 1.1 to win it.
Good thing for Conley traveling calls were banished from the league years ago.
Conley rebounded the Ellis miss with about 6 sec to go... went coast to coast, got fouled in the lane.
You lose a game like this?
He. Is. Still. Dirk. Nowitzki.
Monta had 4 pts after the 3rd quarter. Now he has 18.
Mavs lead in OT, 102-98 w/ 2;07 remaining on TXA21. Big step up for Monta Ellis down the stretch
MONTA ELLIS: rise-to-the-moment player.
Z-Bo misses. Ball remains with Memphis after the scramble. .9 ticks left.
Carlisle wanted a replay. That's why he was mad again.
It's 52.4 second left! You have to review that!
