This is going to be a fun last day of the season. I already posted the possible scenarios, so I'll just add that I think the most likely is the Lakers, Clippers, and Warriors all winning. That would make Golden State the 8th seed.
Avery is taking some heat from LA about the Mavs roster last night, but Avery doesn't care.
All those theories are fun, but I really don't think the Mavs care at all who they play. That's the message I got from Avery last night.
Art Garcia recaps the game and has a quote from Avery reiterating why he chose to play the end of the bench.
In Brian Davis game recap, Dirk explains why he was more than happy to watch from the bench.
"It's good to know that we're winding this down and starting to get ready for the playoffs. It's about that time."
Kevin Sherrington is glad the Mavs lost because he wants to see the Warriors in the first round.
And Gil Lebreton is glad to see Joey Crawford gone.
Marc Stein has an interesting blog entry about the situation and it doesn't sound like we'll ever see Crawford on an NBA court again.
Stern, in an appearance on Tuesday's "Pardon The Interruption" on ESPN, acknowledged Crawford's discontent, telling co-hosts Tony Kornheiser and Michael Wilbon: "In fairness, I would say that [Crawford] doesn't think he did anything wrong and probably doesn't wish to work in the NBA any more."
