Did the Dallas Mavericks finally beat the Golden State Warriors 120-115. I know the Warriors are a winless team, but I think it was good for the Mavs to get his monkey off their back after being embarrassed by Golden State in the first round of the playoffs last year.
No matter the circumstances, the Mavs finally moved their biggest mental block a few inches.
“If we lose, maybe it’s a big deal,” said Jerry Stackhouse, who hit a key 3-pointer with 37 seconds left. “If we win, I don’t know if it’s that much of a big deal. With what’s gone on over the past year-and-a-half between these teams, any time we meet it’s going to be a big game.”
I agree with Stackhouse. Nobody wants to be thinking “Here we go again…”. This isn’t a big win, but it would have been a huge loss.
