Mav’s shock the Lakers!


The #3 Dallas Mavericks shocked the #2 LA Lakers, 93-81, last night, to go ahead (2-0) in the Western Conference semi-finals series! Dirk Nowitski scored 24 points and seven boards and Shawn Marion added 14 points and nine boards for the Mav’s. Kobe Bryant had 23 points and five steals, Andrew Bynum had 18 point and 13 boards, and Pau Gasol had 13 points and 10 boards. Lamar Odom was dismal. Bynum was upset with the team, and lack of confidence in teammates after the game. Read the excerpt, courtesy USA Today, and Watch the highlight video!

The Lakers’ problems are “deeply rooted at this point,” Bynum said. “It’s obvious we have trust issues. Unless we come out and discuss it, then nothing is going to really change. We have to come in and have a good session (Thursday), which I believe we will, and correct things. If not, we’ll go home.”
