If Dallas keeps playing the same rotation they used in Game 1, the Kings will win the series in 4 with all 4 games being blowouts. Now, at one time, Don Nelson used to be creative. Perhaps he should realize that his two headed center combination of Raef and Bradley, oh what's the word I'm looking for, suck. Perhaps its time to move Dirk to center for this series, and let him guard Vlade. Leave Najera on Webber, and hope he can bang him around enough that Webber decides to take one of his 'mental breaks' for a few games. And finally, resurrect Adrian Griffin from the bench, and have him hound Peja. True, Griffin is not going to wow people with his scoring. But, (No D)allas doesn't need scoring. They need to find a way to actually keep the Kings under 120. At least Griffin will give effort on D, and isn't the human sieve that most of the (NO D)allas players are on defense. Even with this move, The Mavs would get knocked out in 6, but at least it would give them a chance to keep the games close.
Let me see if I understand this. The Red Sox #2 starter is now the closer on days he doesn't start? And it's only May? And I thought working on the doctorate would have been the thing to cause full blown alcoholism.
As great as this run for 5 years for the Celtics was, and they got a championship out of it, one thing is also going to hang on this team: The Celtics had NEVER blown a 3-2 series lead in franchise history prior to the '09 playoffs.
