Trying to remain optimistic ... it's one game. It's just one game. But the second half, and specifically the last 15 or so minutes, is disturbing.
MAVS 84 Final
Heat series 1-0
Dirk scored 27, and other than Shawn Marion's 16 and 10 no one showed up. And I mean, no one.
The ugly from the ugly stats ...
JJ Barea - 1 of 8
Jason Terry 3 of 10
Mavs out-rebounded 46-36
Mavs shot 25 of 67 from the floor; 22 of their shots were 3-pointers
The decent ...
Mavs shot 32 FTs, six more than Heat
Chris Bosh shot 5 of 18 from the floor.
Mavs had 18 assists on 25 shots.
That's it. I'm not going to kid myself into thinking this was a pretty game.
The Mavs can win this series, but they have no chance if it's Dirk and a bunch of guys who can't score.
