How is it that even he can spell the word 'tonight' correctly, but so many of you insist upon typing "tonite"?

I think this will be a pretty close game. This is not even the homer in me talking but we will pull this one out: even though it will be close it will never feel like we're not in control of the game. Spurs will make runs (because we all know basketball is a game of runs) but our runs will be more substantive and will build on the lead little by little. Mavs win by 2 or 3 possessions. After the game the Spurs get the swine flu and get quarantined.

I want to see such a big dagger that deflates the arena at the end of this game. Maybe Dirk hitting a 3 with no time left to win it. Then all those blimps that drop prizes down can drop huge weenis's all over the crowd that is still standing in awe and disbelief. Then all the purse fans that come in here trolling and startin mess can go tomorrow and clean it all up with their bare hands.


Go MAVS.

Tonight, Pop decides that containing Dirk is a failing strategy and goes away from the aggressive double team.

Tonight, AAC South glows with the warm happiness of Dirk lighting it up for 40 points.

All signs point to a Spurs victory. But if we keep it close, within a few points with a couple minutes left to go, I can see San Antonio choking the game away.

If Josh gets hurt, this thing can swing the other way in a BIG hurry. He's been the key to this whole series.

Terry hits a three to put us up five with 30 seconds left to seal the deal. Mavs by 7 because of the intentional foul afterward.

I sense a very winnable game here, too. How frustrating it must be for TP and to a smaller degree TD to dominate a series in 3 of 4 games like they did and still to be down 3:1. They were all fired up before game 4, looking to bounce back, left it all on the floor but it was not enough. Granted, for the most part that was because lack of support to that duo, but seriously, how could Pop motivate them and ask 'em to bring that kind of effort again, and again and then again. Because that's what they need to do if they wanna stand a chance to advance, and it's just the condition precedent, odds are still against them, even if they do. And Tony&Timmy already have proven it’s not their fault if the spurs are done after round one.

Now I’m sure Greg Popovich doesn’t like to be schooled by Rick Carlisle and I kind of expect him to get the best out of some of his scrubs tonight and maybe he’s finally willing to use that hill-kid a little more, giving TP some rest for the late game action without sucking at PG in the intermission.
But still, other than the “we’ve been here before” brave talk and their surficial denial it seems like that “egg’n’butter”spurs-duo already knows they are beaten and therefore, hopefully, won’t try too hard.

So, regarding the Mavs decent play in this series with some pretty capable guys still looking for their break-out game, I’m really looking forward to tonight’s game 5.
I expect a close game through three quarters with our Mavs discovering their killer-instinct early in the fourth. Just guessing, of course anything can happen.

Nonetheless, the one thing that unsettles me the most is the fact that all the Western first-round match-ups are facing early determination right now(Lakers vsUtah already over), and maybe the nba isn’t too happy as it probably expected some more games out of the ultra competitive Western Conference.

So Mavs better eliminate any doubts early. Go Mavs!!

Mavs > Tony Parker. Unless someone like Mason steps up and drains a good 30 I think we take this one, even on their home turf.

I am so fire up for this game that I am upgrading my adult beverage selection from Milwakees Best to Bud light.

Dirk and Terry go bananas and the MAVS COME UP WITH THE W.

I swear, I've never seen someone injure his ankles as much as Howard. It's so frustrating he keeps doing this. I really think they will never fully heal and it will nag him for the rest of his career. Like a real bad knee problem does. I hope he doesn't become Grant Hill.

Does anyone know if the injury is serious?

Default Spurs columnist wants Bowen to injure Howard's ankle

Quote:
http://www.mysanantonio.com/sports/spur ... ewell.html

For old times, Bruce Bowen should bump into Josh Howard's wobbly ankle.

Bowen should do this, naturally, with arms spread, with the wide-eyed look of an innocent. Then he should bump into Dirk Nowitzki, J.J. Barea and anyone else who passes by.

For old times, Bowen should also walk out for the tip tonight for the first time in the AT&T Center since Nov. 28. He should start, just as he did every night for the previous seven years, just as he did for three championships.

Because this may be the last time.

Nothing is certain now, including the length of the series. As it was in 2006 against the Mavericks, Bowen might be back for a Game 7.

Summer decisions are as sketchy. The Spurs have yet to begin discussions on what to do with the roster and, with Bowen, there are several options.

They could keep him, and that would be easy enough. He's under contract next season.

But his salary is only partially guaranteed. The Spurs can buy him out for half of the $4 million he is due, then pursue someone else with the savings. Or they could trade him this summer, or they could trade him next season.

They already tried to trade him this season, and for a reason. Bowen might not be playing at all against Dallas if Manu Ginobili were healthy.

So the Spurs will evaluate, and they will repeat what they said last summer. They need to get younger, right?

That makes sense, except for this Bowen seemingly never gets old. Earlier this month, NBA TV showed consecutive Spurs' closeout games from their championship years, and the 2003 game was striking.

Tony Parker looked like a baby and Tim Duncan like an MVP. Bowen looked the same. While other players have gone through unmistakable stages, Bowen's differences were subtle. He's lost a step, but it's difficult to see.

That's Bowen, ever the non-traditionalist. He's never been much of a rebounder, and he's never averaged double figures in scoring. Yet he deserves to have his number retired.

His defensive stats have never impressed, either. Jason Kidd, for example, has averaged almost 150 steals a season for his career; Bowen has never had more than 84 in any season in San Antonio.

Still, he chased scorers, and he irritated them. And when he sat down this season, the Spurs changed.

Sometimes they were better for it. Sometimes Roger Mason Jr. and others scored as Bowen rarely could.

But Saturday showed again what the Spurs once were with him. Inserted into the starting lineup to defend Barea, Bowen competed and brought playoff-tested toughness.

Afterward, as he left the locker room, he was asked if there was an adjustment since he had started for the first time in 70 games. He shrugged.

I'd done it so many times, he said.

If Bowen has complained this season, he's done it privately. But that doesn't mean he's been happy. He always defended his turf with a lot of pride, and he thinks he can still play. Bowen has told friends he will try to play elsewhere next season if the Spurs don't want him anymore.

He's also told people he will come back here to live, no matter how this ends for him. He's found a home.

So tonight means something to him, and to the franchise. If this is his last game in a Spurs uniform, it's the opening farewell to an era. Bowen will be the first of the core that won three titles to leave.

That's why he should start as he did 500 consecutive times for the Spurs, and why he should have a chance to be what he was, and why Howard's ankle should be on alert.

For old times.

This is what I'm most afraid about happening the rest of the way.
