Mav’s bang up the Lakers!
The Mav’s with Dirk Nowitski banged up the Lakers 98-92, last night, to go 3-0 for the their series! Serious? the Lakers are at the door of elimination in only the second round of the playoffs. Nowitski has been the facilitator late in the game either scoring or swinging the ball to the open man. Nowitski, Jason Terry, and Peja Stojakovic were all hitting shots in the fourth quarter. Nowitski had 32 points and nine boards and Terry had 23 points. Kobe Bryant only had 17 points and Andrew Bynum had 21 points and 10 boards. Even though they lost the game, Kobe guaranteed a win for next game. Read the post-game comment, courtesy foxsports, and watch the highlight video!
”We’re disappointed,” said Lakers coach Phil Jackson, who’s never been down 3-0 in a series, much less been swept, in 20 years as an NBA coach. ”We feel like Games 1 and 3 we controlled the pace of the games. They were better at finishing the games than we were, but we still believe we’re going to win the next game and we’ll go from there.”
