Last night proved that the Mavericks fortunes rest on the shot of power forward Dirk Nowitzki. With the lead and the ball and just 10 ticks left on the clock the guys could not homd on and lost in OT by a score of 107-114.
Jason Terry had a hell of a game shooting 12 of 18 from the floor and 7 of 10 from the line. If only the Great German Hope could have made a few more then maybe the Mavs could have pulled it out Wednesday night against the Hornets. As it was, he shot only 4 of 15 from the floor and 4 of 5 from the line to go along with his 6 personal fouls.
It was nice to see J Kidd looking a little more like his old self. He remains a viable fantasy even though his numbers are down because he typically makes few mistakes, but missing 9 of his 12 shots might change that assesment.
Heres hoping that both Dirk and Jason will get it in gear against the Raptors at home on Saturday.
