First Quarter:


andytobo Andrew Tobolowsky

The first play of your 2011-2012 Mavs campaign is a Lamar Odom pass to Vince Carter. #obviously

Shockingly, the Thunder NOT holding out their early-twenties superstar to match the Mavs' 32 year old one. #enjoyitwhileyoucankids

Shawn Marion instantly recognizable among the new faces because a seagull has pooped on his head, or something.

TWO reverse layups in the early going? Is this a Mavs game?

Haywood, nifty layup and the foul! Let's see how the FT coaching has been going...

Second Quarter:

The Beard beardier, also hitting threes. Missed rotation. The D....maybe a work in progress.

The world keeps fouling Dom Jones. Dom Jones is just the instrument of being fouled. #7ftssofar

Some sneaky good play by the youngsters---Roddy to Randle to Jones for a layup and one. #Yeahyoungfellas

Not rushing to blame 71% Thunder shooting on absence of Chandler. He didn't usually cover the three-point shot anyway.

andytobo Andrew Tobolowsky

Roddy looks, at least, completely healthy, fearless and fast. Charge, Nazr on JET believe it or not.

andytobo Andrew Tobolowsky

Mavs trying to serve (delicious) youth, but Roddy dribbling for seconds then shooting three not in the playbook. Thunder shooting lightsout.

Now that sweet Roddy transition 3? THAT is in the playbook.

The passing is what you and I need. It's all we need.

Roddy nottttt real close to Maynor on that (Maynor's) drive). Roddy not real close on fast break layup #Comeonyoungfella

Mavs down 38-32 because the Thunder won't miss threes, but we're not sweating. #Heretoseetheshow

Mahimni kills a human being with a charge, broadcasters make a "playing cards with Jerry Stackhouse" joke about physical violence. 38-32

Announcers comment on Aldrich's good fortune in being able to re-establish pivot foot three times. Mahimni o-board, missed layup #comeonyf

andytobo Andrew Tobolowsky

Announcers make a "I never know what you're doing in there" joke. Delonte passes up a three, Mahimni hits an elbow jumper. #news

Durant unveils a VERY Dirk-like shot. That's what I would do if I were him, too. #Scary

When you score 40 and the other guy scores 40 but HE does it when it matters and you're launching 30-footers, figure out what he's doing.

andytobo Andrew Tobolowsky

That Roddy B three-point stroke is just beautiful. 58-51 OKC at half, but the Mavs are going young and are still showing some fine things.

Third Quarter:

andytobo Andrew Tobolowsky

Odom and Marion doing pretty well on teh boards. Thunder 72-58, 7 left in the 3rd

Come on, stop calling fouls. What is this, regular season basketball?

Vince Carter, first Mav to ever go from the three-point line to the basket, get there, make layup #notreallybut

Sorry, took a break to show girlfriend "Vince Carter's Top Ten Dunks" on youtube. #requiredreading

andytobo Andrew Tobolowsky

Brother asks why I showed girlfriend that, Not That Guy Anymore. Still.

Just watched the video of T-Mac dunking on Shawn Bradley #wayleadsontoway

Shawn Marion sneers on the bench. Doesn't need no stinkin' badge.

Fourth Quarter:

andytobo Andrew Tobolowsky

Start of the fourth, Mavs down 20, let's just enjoy the game eh?

20 minutes ago

andytobo Andrew Tobolowsky

Jerome Randle thinks about a three....and then swishes it. Dang. No Drew Neitzel so far today, fyi

20 minutes ago

andytobo Andrew Tobolowsky

I love what Dom Jones is doing, but I reallllyyy doubt he'll get the major league whistles, just yet. Good shot by Roddy didn't fall.

GREAT pass by Roddy, wasted fast-break opportunity, made three by Dom Jones. #dangyoungones

RODDY BBBbbbb for three. Mavs suddenly within 9. Thunder probably not enjoying the memories inspired by this comeback.

17 minutes ago

andytobo Andrew Tobolowsky

Wow, just a terrific take by Roddy. Mavs within 6.

Harden three, back to 9, Roddy turnover.

Great play. Good defense, good redound, good outlet pass from Dojo to Roddy, good finish by Roddy

terrific pass from Randle to Ianimal and a dunk. Five point game!

Even with the bench in, watching a Mavs game in the 4th is the exact opposite of watching a Cowboys game.

7 minutes ago

andytobo Andrew Tobolowsky

Spark goin' a little bit out here, but quite the fourth quarter effort all the same

andytobo Andrew Tobolowsky

And that's it. A lot of interesting play, no stakes. Also, Kim Jong II died?

5 minutes ago

Thanks a lot!

Final thoughts: Not much chance to see what the Mavs will look like, but a lot of good stuff. Dom Jones was great, though again, not sure if he'll draw fouls like that when the season starts, and I think Roddy was really impressive. Liked Carter and Odom too. Even Jerome Randle looked verrrry comfortable with the ball. Lot more analysis coming your way from MMB.com, and thanks for joining.
