The Mavs roll over (again)

May 18, 2005 at 10:33 PM

The Mavericks haven't exactly been impressive these playoffs when other teams make a run. They sure have a knack of turning a two point lead into a twelve point deficit.

Pretty tough to say that the Mavs have been "rolling over" in the playoffs when they come back and beat Houston after losing the first two games at home. If anything, I think the Mavs have shown how much heart they have and that they are a strong team. It is still early with this new look Mavs team, and I think Avery will have them contending in the years to come.

Also, one thing the Mavs have going for them is that they don't have Manu Ginobli, the most overrated player in the western conference.

Oh my goodness....

Two questions:

Have you seen the Rockets play (besides when the Mavs played them?
Have you seen the Spurs play?

Now while I agree that the Mavs have not rolled over. They did beat the rockets, not a great accomplishment there. To say Manu is the most overated...have you seen the man play. He is insane, athletic, and exciting to watch. Look at the mavericks for overated. Win a REAL playoff series and then let me know.

Holy crap is NBA officiating a joke, anyone who claims they don't favor the stars is delusional. With 2:40 to go Stoudamire just hammered Stackhouse after a defensive rebound while Jim Jackson stood nearby. It would've been number 5 of Amare so the ref called it on Jackson. What a joke, it wasn't even close.

Correction, it would've been number 6.

The Rockets were the 2nd hottest team going in to the playoffs behind the Mavs. Yes, I have seen the Spurs play, and frankly I am not impressed. Tony Parker had a horrible series, and they only got by the Sonics because the Sonics had their #2 and #3 scorer injured.

How can you say Ginobli is good? All he does is drive into the lane, pull a spin move, and then ducks his head into the defense and draws a foul. There is not much skill involved in that. George Karl had him pegged, and everyone knows it. Bout time someone came out and said it.

As far as the Mavs series, yeah, Stoudamire gets all of the calls, but the sad thing is that Dirk doesn't get the same calls. It is a shame that Dirk doesn't get the respect that he deserves. He was first team all NBA, that deserves some F-in foul calls. Give me a break!

I do not believe the Spurs are dominating, but better than most in this league. The simple thing is when one of their players has a bad night, someone always seems to step in. If Duncan is hurt, they will struggle though.

NBA, College, basketball officiating is difficult and not very good. The problem will always be too much contact is allowed and then too many nick nack fouls are called. Besides it should not matter who the player is. The game should be called right. But Dirk does get screwed.

George Karl coached the Sonics when the lost as a #1 seed to a #8 seed. His opinion doesn't count! Everybody flops like Ginobli, he just does it at a higher speed. Oh and he is averaging 21.5 points per game in the playoffs.
