    That was a great game to watch. After being dogged for his "clutch" ability, Jason Terry made some crazy big shots near the end of the game. Excellent all-around game for the Mavs...just enough defense, and the shots were finally falling.

    Also, great clutch shooting in the 4th by Mr.James! I'm going to need to hear more about this Rashard Lewis scandal....

    I fear Dallas may not shoot over 60% the next couple of games :scan: . Still they played good for that one :goodjob: .

    Tyson and Terry seem to have upped their game.

    I don't think they will either, but they also underperformed relative to their shooting ability in games 1, 2 and 3. They're getting the same open looks all series, they just finally started hitting them.

    Exactly my thoughts, thank you. This Lebron being better than Jordan crap is ridiculous...

    Yep, they finally got their shots to fall. They also stopped turning the ball over.
    Tyson is the definition of beast.

    I love how Terry is eating up LeBron after saying, "lets see him guard me for 7 games."

    Adande had this weird article on ESPN about how it's surreal that Jason Terry is playing the part of an rip-your-heart-out competitor. He uses the word "warped" for him and I wouldn't disagree.

    If you tattoo the trophy on yourself you kind of have to step up.

    Dirk has called LeBron and Wade, "a little childish and ignorant." Miami is in for a big game from Dirk I think.

    Seems like every time Nowitzki's in the game, Miami surges - he's missing all his shots.

    Go Mavs!

    Awesome. Dirk may have had a crappy first half, but he got better when it mattered (Würzburg 4 lyfe!), and Terry was just impressive. Great three-point shooting let them spread the floor and they got some nice short-range shots in in the fourth. Cuban was classy as all hell. Congratulations, Dallas fans. :)

    Miami got tight - stupid turnovers, Wade jacking up threes, and Bosh basically disappearing down the stretch. They'll be hungry for next year. Gonna be interesting to watch.

    Also, what the hell was up with Miami's FT shooting?
