Mav's are shooting 2-10 from three - Of course they would shoot lights out against us, and suck against someone else.

Lol I honestly thought the same thing. I said after game 4 LA vs DAL teams like Dallas don't win championships. Teams that live and die by jumpers don't win.

We didn't challenge the shots. There is a reason they played great against us and part of it was just plain poor D.

I missed a lot of this game, but wow, Dirk has 20 free throws. A lot of fouls on jump shots, it seems.

Nate Robinson is an atrocious defender. Scottie Brooks fails today for putting him in to guard Barea.

Oklahoma reaching on every single post-up trying to jar the ball loose definitely helps. Especially when they continue to do so despite going into the penalty early in the quarter.

Dirk just killing it....Did they try Perkins on him in this game?

By the way, Westbrook is totally wetting the bed this game. Hope he bounces back.

Westbrook playing badly can really deflate the Thunder. Absolutely terrible performance from him. I think the Thunder are still ok though. Have Westbrook play better and don't let Dirk and Barea have career nights and they can win this series.

They need to front Dirk and deny him the ball...They might have to double him, as well.

I think they tried him on one or two possessions. He just blew right by him. With Dirk's improved playmaking and finishing at the rim, he's unstoppable.

J.J. Barea just finished two straight games where nobody on the floor could stop him.

It's funny because everyone Said the lakers lost because they were too slow and old. Well here we have the youngest and most athletic team in the playoffs and they got worked

The mavericks have so many shooters and add that to them pretty much executing flawlessly for 5 straight games and dirk playing out of his mind.

The lakers ran into a buzz saw that they were too worn out to withstand. Hopefully the thunder can bring Dallas down to earth because 3 point shooting teams don't win championships

OKC will have to double Dirk and have to make someone else beat them.

the mavs won because of one man only, itll be interesting to see whether OKC chooses to double dirk or not leaving shooters peja, stevenson, the jet, wide open. the mavs are playing excellent right now, and look unbeatable. won their past 7 games i believe??

Nice push by the Thunder. Peja has been just beyond solid for the Mav's...Really wish we signed him.
