My first thought as the game ended - there is now way the refs wouldn't have heard Avery yelling "timeout" as time ran down.
My second thought isn't repeatable. The hangover is real, and it's really annoying.
There were a few good things to take away from the game:
- Dirk had an MVP type game
- Devin was great at both ends
- Buckner and Croshere obviously haven't learned the defensive rotations yet, but they will.
And oh yeah, Josh Howard is probably out a week or two.
Life sucks for Mavs fans right now.
|Dirk Nowitzki||9||7.7||26/11/6 on just ten shots - great game|
|Jason Terry||6||5.7||Played OK - just 5/15 from the field|
|Josh Howard||7||7.7||Very Good game going before injury|
|DeSagana Diop||5||5.7||Can't play at that pace|
|Anthony Johnson||6||6||Had few good passes - pretty average|
|Jerry Stackhouse||6||6.3||Played hard but didn't shoot well tonight|
|Greg Buckner||6||6||Far better on on offense than defense|
|Devin Harris||9||7||Fantastic game - never stopped attacking - played very well defensively|
|Erick Dampier||6||6.3||Was OK given then pace and his few minutes|
|Austin Croshere||5||6.3||Quite a few defensive mistakes - shot 1/6|
