View Full Version : Mavs and Hornets

Not only did the Mavs escape with a buzzer-beater the last time the two teams met, but the Hornets lost to the freakin BULLS last night! i/expressions/face-icon-small-shocked.gif Something tells me they're going to be madd pissed tomorrow night.. Nonetheless, the Mavs will snap their two-game losing streak, and the fans will get their chalupas! Mavs 103, Hornets 90

Time for Dirk to break out of his mini slump.... Dallas 97, Charlotte 81

NO NASH....NO WIN. .....BARON DAVIS will give EISLEY problems......I hate to say it But it will be a closely contested game But w/o Nash OR Blazing Hot shooting. ..we arent going to win.

Mini slump? Dude had 30 against the Twolves? Any way, the Magic 8-ball has made its prediction:

Considering our upcoming schedule(5 game road trip/ at Blazers, Jazz, Rockets, Lakers ,Kings), this is as big of a must win game as we've had all year.

Hornets 99
Mavs 105

Max well steps up.

I think the Mavs win this game. I see no 3-game losing streak. Actually, Eisley had a decent game against the Hornets the first time, with 20pts (6-14)3rbs 8as and only 2 fouls. Davis was 3-13 for 11pts 7rbs 6as and 5 fouls. Mashburn (22-9-9) and Wesley (19-6-5) are the ones that hurt us really. Another thing is we didn't have Buckner or Najera to throw in there. Not to mention the addition of Howard and now Booth. I like our chances much better tonight...

Closely contested game, as both teams are dying for a win. If Nash doesn't play, Eisley steps up and performs well, Mad Max hits only a few shots but makes some big plays, Dirk explodes and carries the team to a win... Mavs 95-91.

Since i had a 50 dollar win ticket on a 10-1 horse today at oaklawn.
I think that makes me an expert on everything today.
Mavs Win going away and I am reaady to yell at the tv.
I was sure yelling at that horse

Wasn't the prettiest game but they got the job done. Must(there's that word again i/expressions/face-icon-small-wink.gif ) play better on the road trip or we ain't gonna win any.

I predicted the Mavs output correctly but had no idea the game would be so closely contested! This is the second game I missed but at least my gf got to go and watch an exciting game (I always get on her case b/c if I'm not there, she'll leave early if it's a blowout win). Any opinions on Booth's play? I thought he looked a bit lost at times, but he played ok, allowing Bradley some mins on the bench. Mavs probably would have lost this one if not for Nash's gutsy play. Fin was also HUGE tonight, sinking a lot of those oft-time ugly jumpers i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif The only prob I saw was the team's continued inconsistency at the line. Juwan also struggled throughout most the game, but stepped up when it counted the most. Oh well..chalupas for the people i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif

Rob, I hope you get to change that magic number again tonight!

03-24-2001, 10:31 PM
Yep, me too. 61-60 Sonics. 7:30 to go in 3rd.

03-24-2001, 10:38 PM
Third quarter was ugly. Other than that it was a pretty good game. I think that Booth has game. Needs more time though.He definitely looked like he was in space at times. Nash, finley and nowitzki big as always. Eisley was a big pathetic loser. He sucks. He needs to practice more or something, shit. Bradley was big also.

03-24-2001, 10:44 PM

Why was Booth playing so many minutes??

03-24-2001, 11:24 PM
Ugh Rockets up 90-89 with 23secs left..

03-24-2001, 11:27 PM
Sonics up 1. 12 seconds

03-24-2001, 11:29 PM
Sonics win 93-90!

03-24-2001, 11:30 PM
Sonics win. WOOHOO!

03-24-2001, 11:40 PM
Booth played so much primarily because Bradley--not unusually--had foul trouble. I really liked what I saw. He's still learning the Mavs and sometimes looked like he was still needed to build endurance after his time on the IR, but it looks like there is real potential there.

Bradley only scored ten points, pulled down twelve rebounds, and blocked five shots (with zero turnovers)... When is he going to live up to his potential?

That's a good question, considering the fact that the next ten years of the Mavs will be known as the:
