The egomaniac in me would love to believe that the Mavericks got together Friday night and read my last entry asking for them to get it together in time for their home game Saturday night against the Raptors. Why? Because obviously they listened!
129 points! letme say that again- 129 points! That is some serious offensive output. Five guys scored in double figures with- surprise surprise- everyone’s favorite giant German Mr. Dirk Nowitzki leading the charge with 29. With 32 assists spread across the team, relative to only 16 for the Raptors, these guys obviously worked together to reach those lofty numbers.
Now Toronto is not exactly the cream of the NBA crop. Offensively they can churn out some serious numbers like they did Saturday night with 101. Defensively, well- lets just say there is a reason why these guys need to churn out so many points.
Regardless of how good the Raptors may or may not be it is still a tremendous win for a time in need if finding an identity. So far in this young season the Maveicks have not looked the greatest on their way to achieving a 4-2 record. Often times it has taken an outstnding effort by the giant German to keep the team in in; when he’s off, the team really struggles.
For the team to be as competitive as they can be they will need to see many more nights like they had against Toronto. Being stuck in Indiana myself I would love to see the guys do well so I can talk to trash to all these silly Pacer fans.
So how ’bout hooking me up Dallas ?
