Mavs trailing early but it is early


Living in the eastern time zone, I am attempting to stay up and watch the Mavs victory tonight. We will see if I am successful ;). Some early observations from the first quarter. I hate the celebrity shots of the crowd. Who really cares who is at the game? Can’t we just watch the game?

Both teams got off to a fast start offensively. Kidd hit an early shot and everyone is getting involved early. Even DeShawn Stevenson is hitting early on. Peja Stoyakovic comes in early to create some space as the Lakers are crowding the paint defensively. Dirk Nowtizki continues to play Gasol tough. Mavs trail by one about halfway through the first quarter.
