Well, like everyone else I stayed up late last night to watch the Dallas Mavericks beat up on the Miami Heat. It wasn’t a great game by any means because both teams were playing kind of ugly but the Dallas Mavericks managed to dominate the Heat despite not giving a stellar performance. It looked like a battle of sheer intimidation. They put Dirk into the double team on Shaq and it worked like gang busters. Shaq couldn’t get a shot of and eventually sat down for pretty much the entire second half. He walked away with only 5 points. I was impressed that the Dallas Mavericks could take two in a row without playing to their potential once. Wow.
