Me too. I hope the title this year goes to the West.

Dallas showed poise, depth, and how to close out a game. This series is over for the Thunder. Outside of Durant, the Thunder didn't have a scorer after Harden fouled out. The Mavs had a great strategy in making someone else beat them besides Durant. Dirk is the best player in the playoffs thus far...unbelievable shots he made.

I told my friend don't be surprised if Dallas wins both games in OKC and they did. Amazing


The Thunder don't have anything left to win in Game 5

****in bull****. 99-84 with 4 min left in the 4th.


too young.


A Thunder fan here. If the Mavs make it to The Finals (most likely) I will be pulling for them hardcore.

I guess Hardin is the key.

Awesome win. One more then gear up for the finals.
Dirk is getting the accolades he deserves.

OKC scored 6 points in the last 10 minutes of game time (last 5 minutes of regulation and the 5 minutes in overtime). SIX POINTS IN TEN MINUTES. That's not going to get it done.

Serious props should go to Dallas' defense in the last 10 minutes of game time (a handful of steals and pretty much all one-and-dones at OKC's offensive end), Dirk Nowitzki for hitting those 2 nearly impossible shots on back-to-back possessions near the end of regulation and 2 clutch free throws in the last 10 seconds of regulation to tie the game, and Jason Kidd for some getting some big blocks and steals, grabbing some loose balls, and hitting the 3 pointer that was the key shot in the overtime and put the Mavericks ahead for good.

I got the sense early on in the 2nd round that the 2011 NBA Finals would be a reprise of the 2006 NBA Finals and it's looking more and more like that will be the case.

You have to give the Mavs credit. Dirk came up huge down the stretch, hitting shot after shot at the end.

Looks like the Mavs are going to meet the Heat in the final. I think the Mavs have the Thunder's number. Chicago showing they rely too much on Rose and can't match up to the Heat.

Mavs-Heat in Final. It should be a good one too.
