While it likely does not rival a proverb from Confucius or Poor Richard's Almanac, the Mavericks did learn an NBA truth in the first quarter:
A match against Messrs. Sessions and Ridnour is quite a picnic when compared to a night of Dancing with Tony.
Milwaukee point guards Ramon Sessions and Luke Ridnour combined for 0-4 from the field in the first quarter, which is a little worse than Tony Parkers' 10-of-11 start from the field last night. So a 33-23 lead is a direct result of not letting the opposing point guard slap you around like the Three Stooges.
