Game 6 - Mavs Win!

I expect Victory tonight! I still like the Mavericks chances of winning it all - I just wish it didn't come down to 2 must win games. I told my wife before game 5 started I expected this to go 7 games, regardless of who won that game...So here we go.

What I don't understand is the difference of how each of the teams have played at home. Does Shaq have to sleep in a little kid bed when he travels or something? That big round Superman bed of his in Florida must be pretty good.

I think the Mavs win by 10 tonight. We shall see.

Mavericks...They can do it, but they aren't acting like it!

There are still 2 games left to prove that the Mavericks are the best team in the NBA. They act like they blew it last night.

In some ways they did. They blew the oppertunity to go up 3 games to 2 - and they completely lost their composure. I saw players make BAD mental mistakes, saw coaches make mistakes, and saw an owner make a mistake. The players probably regret it, the coach probably regrets it, but the owner is proud of it. If they had to do it all over again - Howard wouldn't have called a timout. Avery would have been calmer trying to signal the timout and would have been better with the press after the game. But not Cuban. He was so proud he lost his composure he backed it up by bragging that he thinks it's funny when his kid cusses. Money only takes you so far. It can buy you a lot of things...but it can't buy respect or class.

I agree with 95% of the things that Mark Cuban does - but every once and a while, I just wish he would say nothing at all. Sometimes, that can say more than any cuss word you throw out there.

Win with class...Lose with class.

But most important of all. Win 2 more games.
