Avery must read this blog. JET gets the start, scores 22, and plays some D on Chris Paul, who maybe is human after all. Stack plays only 7 minutes, sits out the whole second half, and is not happy about it. Result = Mavs roll.
Tim McMahon beat me to it on the DMN blog…could Josh Howard have picked a worse time to bare his soul to Michael Irvin? What could he have possibly hoped to gain by doing this? Two points for honesty, I suppose. The MFFL is not happy, likely because a) Josh removed all doubt that he has a screw loose, and b) (McMahon’s point) who will take him off the Mavs’ hands now via trade?
I really can’t believe that PHX is down 3-0. The Suns are winding down, and I have to wonder if D’Antoni is at the end of his rope after this debacle – could the door be open for a Nash-Dirk reunion in Dallas in ’09-’10? What if the Mavs re-signed Kidd, sold Nash on ending his career with his best buddy, and had a two-headed point guard? Could it possibly happen? Would it even be desirable?
