The magic 8-ball says the Mavs are gonna run the Blazers to the ground and pull out a 105-98 win. The magic 8-ball never lies. Chalupas for the people!

Another day, another victimization... Blazers can't run small lineups to force Bradley out of the game like the Suns can. The game is easy, but the outcome is never in doubt as the Blazers never come within five after the first quarter... Mavs 102-93.

By the end of the game, Pippen is pulling on Nash's hair, Rasheed is trying to kick Buckner in the shins, and Bonzi is crying and sucking his thumb in the corner...

Nah, Even with how hot the Mavs are right now, we're not gonna win this one.

Blazers 104
Mavs 92

I say we go ahead and crush'em by 26 or so.
Last yr i put 40 bucks on the mavs to win it all when i was in Vegas.
although it might be as lost as nasdaq money

hehe, none of it i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif .

Portland's to big inside for us. I guess it also depends on if they come in here pissed about lossing to SA, or if they come in relaxed after a victory over the Wests best.

Bah! The magic 8-ball doesn't look too kindly on doubters..

Sabonis went down with an ankle injury. That cuts down their size tremendously. I say Dallas 104 Portland 98.

The Blazers lost tonight. We've passed them for the 5th seed.

I see the Mavs winning 100 to 99, with 3 to 4 ejections.

djb
03-19-2001, 10:41 PM
ejection 1: Bradley, for elbowing Wallace while securing the rebound
ejection 2: Wallace, for going medieval on Bradley
ejection 3: Pippen, for tripping Finley
ejection 4: Trent, for running off the bench and pounding Pippen

Hmm..I didn't consult the magic 8-ball on this one so things may turn out differently.

DJ, that is so funny about the ejections. I tell you, that Bonzi character better not try to trip up Fin like he did in the last game. Im not sure if Pippen tried to trip up Bradley, the guy is awkward at times i/expressions/face-icon-small-blush.gif

So, Sabonis went down with an injury, huh? That's good, maybe Bradley will come out strong like he has been, excluding the Phoenix game that is.

I like our chances of beating them and they do seem to be spiraling out.

Mavs 103, Blazers 97 - a hard fought battle until the end

Mavs win at the buzzer 96-95, Fin nails a triple as time expired. Bradley will get into a fight with Wallace and Trent will steps up to that punk. This lifts us to make a 4th quarter comeback........in other words, bring da mua-fukin ruckus.

mavs win this one easy
108 - 86

why ? mavs run 48 min and the blazers are already tired after the sa game

A win here would be huge. It would just bring the confident level up one more notch.

03-20-2001, 08:18 AM
you forgot one ejection
dirk for victimizing the trailblazers for 38 points and 12 rebounds.

A win against the Blazers would be huge tonight, but I hope yesterday's loss to the Spurs doesn't motivate them to overcome their personal animostity toward each other, and play well enough to end our streak... That said, I think we are playing to well right now, and the Blazers are playing to poorly for us to be really worried about this one... Also, you would think TBS would consider changing their schedule to show a game like this one... I haven't checked to see who is playing on national TV, but I bet it's going to be something dumb like Knicks/Magic...

djb
03-20-2001, 01:30 PM
I think it's something like Pacers/Raptors. I remember seeing folks from other boards b*tching bout this i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif

Why does TNT insist on broadcasting crappy eastern conference games? Especially the worthless Knicks all the time. If its a time zone thing, aren't Dallas games on early too? At least show the Spurs. Its seems like the stupid Knicks and Raptors are always on.

This is gonna be a tough game. I'll be suprised if the score goes over 100 for either team. If the Mavs can get a win here, they will show the world that they are for real.

Evilmav2
03-20-2001, 06:24 PM
Even if we don't win tonight, we are going to get to see them again next week... Along with our old friends the Lakers and Jazz (and they are all road games)...

Is it true that Howard is out tonight with an injury?

LonestarROB
03-20-2001, 06:41 PM
i/expressions/face-icon-small-shocked.gif I sure as hell hope not. Where did you hear this?

madape
03-20-2001, 06:49 PM
Someone posted that on Sportstalk too. anyone know if its true? Without Howard, we will have trouble defending the big bodies down low. Nevertheless, we did beat the crap out of them last time we played, and we didn't have Juwon then. So there is no reason to think we can't win without him this time.

EVIL..I was thinking the same thing on the National Networks. But I guess they are scared to touch us since the disaster versus the Suns. Like tonight they have Indiana vs Toronto .... who gives a shyt about either team ...But I guess they want to showcase Vince as much as possible..

Evilmav2

Since I live in Indiana, I will have the pleasure of flipping between the option A- local Indiana Foxsports coverage of the Pacers game on channel 4, or option B- I can watch the TBS coverage on 39... That is a great choice- I think I am going to have to go for option C on this one, and go to my favorite Season-Pass using bar, Yogi's, and catch the game... I'll talk to y'all later, I'm heading on out...

djb
03-20-2001, 07:18 PM
Heheh good choice Evil i/expressions/face-icon-small-wink.gif Cya after the game!

03-20-2001, 08:10 PM
Howard's in the game and the Mavs are up 24-14 after one! Let's keep it going!

djb
03-20-2001, 08:38 PM
Mavs up 43-38 at the half. Will Maxwell EVER make a shot?

Mavs#1Fan
03-20-2001, 08:40 PM
Still ahead at the half.

Wallace has a T
Detlef has 3 fouls
Bonzi has 3 fouls

I still think 3 to 4 players will be ejected.

Mavs#1Fan
03-20-2001, 08:42 PM
There's a lot of rough play being allowed tonight. The team with the most MEN on it will win.

LonestarROB
03-20-2001, 08:45 PM
Slow and boring 1st half. Neither team playing with much effort or energy. Hopefully the Mavs come out in the second half with more enthusiasm. Otherwise we may be in trouble.

djb
03-20-2001, 08:50 PM
Here's hoping Wallace gets another tech early in the third i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif

03-20-2001, 09:22 PM
Mavs by two going into the fourth. Someone better step up and start making some shots..man they been lookin baaaaad!

Couldn't have happened to a better guy!i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif Now if we could just make some stinkin' shots! The Mavs are going to make me an old man tonight....I feel the gray growing right now!i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif

HORRIBLE HORRIBLE SHOOTING i/expressions/face-icon-small-mad.gif

Mavs stunk it up in the fourth bad. They still havent proven that they can beat any of the big forces ahead of them in the west.

djb
03-20-2001, 09:59 PM
They were shooting it pretty badly the whole night. Those missed free throws (including the techs) REALLY hurt.

LonestarROB
03-20-2001, 10:02 PM
No effort, no energy, no enthusiasm what so ever. The only thing good about that, is that they'll have plenty of it left for tomorrow's game in Minn.

Not mad about tonight though. About what I expected. Can win'em all. Even the greatest teams have bad games.

Hoover
03-20-2001, 10:02 PM
Damn I wanted that one!i/expressions/face-icon-small-disgusted.gif

03-20-2001, 10:04 PM
Ya I agree Rob. I really didn't know what to expect for tonight's game, and quite frankly I'm not too disappointed. Anytime you have a 5-1 homestand you have to be happy. The Mavs shot the ball incredibly poorly tonight yet still managed to keep it close.

Mavs#1Fan
03-20-2001, 10:05 PM
Very rough, very physical game. We didn't get any calls, but we need to get used to it. The new kid never gets calls in the playoffs.

Nellie probably should have drawn a T, maybe the refs would have started calling a foul or two.

Oh well! We went 5 & 1 on this homestand! GO MAVS!!!

djb
03-20-2001, 10:07 PM
No kidding! I mean, Wells should have gotten a tech for hanging on the freakin rim! Oh well..can't blame anyone for the poor shooting and missed free throws. Also, I really don't think Maxwell should have gotten so much pt before the half. The guy did nothing but heave bricks.

Mavs#1Fan
03-20-2001, 10:10 PM
You brought up Maxwell and that leads to a sore subject with me. Our 8 man rotation has 5 guards. We haven't got any size that we bring off the bench on a regular basis. Maybe Harvey can take Maxwell's minutes next year.

LonestarROB
03-20-2001, 10:10 PM
yah, Maxwell is really strugling. We need him to get on track to give Finley some rest.

djb
03-20-2001, 10:13 PM
Booth should be playing in less than two weeks. I hope he's as good as everyone says. Everytime Bradley got in foul trouble tonight, Nellie subbed in Buck. That definitely hurt (too much small-ball).

Hales233
03-20-2001, 10:20 PM
i saw on sportscenter when pippen got ejected, did he already have a previous tech??

djb
03-20-2001, 10:21 PM
Yup he got it at the very end of the third.

Hales233
03-20-2001, 10:22 PM

LonestarROB

For kicking the ball. Wallace got one in the first half too for throwing the ball in the air.
