After the Fact: Mavericks Win in Portland, Now Face Lakers in Semis

Great win. In Portland is tough for anyone, even the NBA's best road team.

-Dallas wins in 6. Not many "experts" saw this coming.

-Lakers up next, as they beat New Orleans to advance.

-Dirk with a huge 33 and 11 double double, and finally had stretches of him just taking over.

-Was anyone scared after the early first quarter deficit? I'll admit, I pondered the state of Mavdom if Game 6 was a total blowout. I was never that scared, though.

-Other than that...celebrate! Mavericks are out of the first round, only the second time in five years.
