Avery and the rest of the team have had nothing but good things to say about the Warrios so Nellie is having to take care of the trash talk himself.
"I don't see much of a chess match to be quite honest with you. They're the big boys, we're the little guys. They're not afraid of us, I don't care what you guys say. They know we just snuck into the playoffs and they're setting records with 66, 67 wins, whatever wins they had, they won almost more 30 games than we did and we think we had a great year, are you kidding me? We're like a flea on their back, like a pebble of sand in Hawaii. I mean we're just a team happy to be there and we're going to play the best ball we can, but I don't think we're going to be the favorites in Vegas."The Mavs are getting 3/1 odds to sweep in case you were wondering.
