Here's what this game means:
If Dallas loses: Their 17 game winning streak was meanignless because they're only 2.5 games up on the Suns. All the talk of 70 was crazy -- the Mavs had just been lucky with scheduling and, like Hollinger said, getting lucky in close games. Steve Nash is MVP.
If Phoenix loses: They mine as well quit now. Dallas will have beaten the Suns in seven of their last eight meetings -- clearly Dallas has their number and the Suns wouldn't stand a chance in a playoff series. Dirk Nowitzki is MVP.
Or at least that's what we'll be reading tomorrow...
