The Dallas Mavericks victory over the Los Angeles Clippers on Tuesday drew the attention of NBA Twitter, with good reason. The win put them up 2-0 in the series, headed back to Dallas with a chance to clinch the series at home. Despite competing against Game 2 of Lakers-Suns, a curious scheduling decision by the NBA, the Mavericks’ win resulted in some great content on the internet.
Below are some of the best tweets I found or that were sent to me. If I missed some, make sure to tag me on Twitter after next game.
