Mav’s come-back and take Lakers!
Kobe got sour as his last second three clunked off the back of the rim, and Dirk Nowitski ended the hero. The last time these teams met in the playoffs was 1988. The Mavericks dug in and came back from a 16 point deficit. The #3 Dallas Mavericks beat the #2 LA Lakers 96-94, last night, to take a (1-0) lead for the 2nd round of the playoffs (Western Conference semi-finals). Nowitski was cash-money with his 28 points and 14 boards, and Jason Kidd added 11 assists. Kobe Bryant had 36 points, Lamar Odom had 15 points and 12 boards, Pau Gasol 15 points and 11 boards.
