Game 4 - Sat. April 25, San Antonio @ Dallas, 4 p.m., TNT (http://sports.yahoo.com/nba/preview?gid=2009042506)



DALLAS (AP)—Rick Carlisle remembers one of the most infamous NBA playoff blowouts—and what happened after it.

Within minutes of Dallas taking a 2-1 series lead against San Antonio with a surprisingly lopsided victory, the Mavericks coach and former Boston backup guard invoked the 1985 NBA finals in which the Celtics opened with a rout of the Lakers but lost the series in six games.

Carlisle’s message was the same in practice Friday, a day after Dallas led by as many as 36 points and held San Antonio to a franchise playoff scoring low in an 88-67 victory.

“I don’t think you need to tell stories, but the point has got to be made that it’s sitting there staring both teams in the face,” Carlisle said. “When either team has won, their next game has been abysmal. That’s the challenge for us because we know what kind of game they’re going to bring.”

A part of me sorta hopes we lose this series. Losing in the first round may just be the wake-up call we need to finally make some dramatic improvements to our offense the upcoming offseason.

I wouldn't be suprised if Dallas wins this series, if San Antonio loses this game then its pretty much over. This is a must win for Tim Duncan and Co. If they lose this series, then the championships on odd years is officially over.

Must win time for the Spurs. Lets see how they react after a blow-out. I got them winning this one though.

I called for the Spurs to win atleast one in Dallas, so Im still sticking to it. Hope it goes back to SA 2-2

If Dallas can hold down TD and TP again, they'll win it again. Don't care too much who wins, just think that you don't often hold TP and TD down that much in two straight games.

04-25-2009, 04:08 PM
Finally, Pop is starting Bowen.

Very good start for the Spurs. TP and TD already very involved.

I see the real Mavs are back. This team just can't play back to back good games. This team has this town on a roller coaster, and it's heading strait off the tracks.

The pathetic defense is back :)

My god. Finley is ****ing useless on defense.

Udoka sucks, get him the **** out of there.

04-25-2009, 04:39 PM
Just dont understand Pop's rotations sometimes. So frusturating

Young2Kinsler
04-25-2009, 04:44 PM
I hate Brandon Bass, he can't pass the ball. Why aren't we going under screens like last game? That worked, so let's not do it!

That's because he's a genius, and you're not smart enough.


















:p

I can say that, because the Nuggets lost tonight. Damn it.

Young2Kinsler
04-25-2009, 04:48 PM
I see the Mavs are going to let Parker score 40 today and are happy with the loss. Let's not cut off the lane or anything guys.

Young2Kinsler
04-25-2009, 04:54 PM
****in Mavs so careless with the ball. Thats why these pathetic ****s will never win.

Joshtd1
04-25-2009, 04:58 PM
The mavs are beating us, and Dirk has done virtually nothing. Why so angry?

Joshtd1
04-25-2009, 05:00 PM
That's because he's a genius, and you're not smart enough.

Dont think it takes a damn genius to figure out Finley cant play defense, yet Finley is guarding Dirk and Howard constantly. If he is doing nothing on offense, he sucks just like Bonner.

Spurs were playing awesome with Bowen starting because he can actually play defense.

Joshtd1
04-25-2009, 05:02 PM
I just wish Pop would play: TP/ason/Bowen/Duncan/Gooden

Young2Kinsler
04-25-2009, 05:05 PM

we are just giving this game to the spurs, pathetic

04-25-2009, 05:10 PM
FINALLY POP. Have you realized that you need to put Bowen out there on Howard instead of Finley.

04-25-2009, 05:11 PM

04-25-2009, 05:13 PM
Finally Udoka is doing somethign useful.

Young2Kinsler
04-25-2009, 05:15 PM
Spurs should be happy tonight, knowing Dallas handed them a game. I want this Mavs team blown up, they are a bunch of pathetic cocksuckers. Way to close out the quarter you ****ers.

I hope our bench can do somethign in the 2nd half. 3 pts compared to their 18

Young2Kinsler
04-25-2009, 05:16 PM
Thats the most pathetic basketball I've even seen played. Just stay in the locker room you losers, you don't deserve to be on our court.

Young2Kinsler
04-25-2009, 05:18 PM
Mavs down 4 now, should be a nice 19 point loss. I hate this team.

Joshtd1
04-25-2009, 05:19 PM
Please just be aggressive like this in the 2nd half. Parker has tendencies to not keep it up in the 2nd half.

goku
04-25-2009, 05:20 PM
shouldnt dallas just trap parker come with the man that is guarding bowen

thedfactor
04-25-2009, 05:21 PM
Wow did the Mavs really blow their lead and let Parker kick their ***** once again this game...hmmm i can't even be disappointed just the Mavs i know.

Young2Kinsler
04-25-2009, 05:25 PM
Yeah I don't know why I'm so pissed, this is just the Mavs. I mean ****. MAKE SOME ONE ELSE BEAT YOU! IF they can hit 3's all day let them. If Duncan can play a whole 2nd half at full speed, let him, but don't let parker beat you, stupid ****s

Young2Kinsler
04-25-2009, 05:35 PM
It's sad to know this Spurs team isnt as good as they once where, and Dallas still can't put their foot on the throat. Man I wish we were in the lottery

JJ_JKidd
04-25-2009, 05:36 PM
I dont think the Mavs realize the importance of this game??? If the Spurs win today the series is tied going back to SA, assuming the Spurs win in Game 5 that puts all the pressure on the Mavs to win 2 in a row to win the series! This is some sort of a game 7 for both teams IMHO.

Some keys plays in the half are the Terry missed lay-up, sloppy possessions etc. Man TP 31 unreal. Mavs backcourt exposed.

Young2Kinsler
04-25-2009, 05:38 PM
The Mavs just flat out suck. 17-4 run to end the half, lmao. **** this team, tell me now Mavs fans that the lottery wouldn't look better??? I'm always right, thats why Cowboys and Mavs fans hate me!

More sloppy ball handling once we build a lead, pathetic.

Finley not shooting. Bonner not shooting.

Pop, get them out of there

Young2Kinsler
04-25-2009, 05:54 PM
Mavs build a little lead, then hand it away, i hate this squad so much.

04-25-2009, 05:55 PM
Hollins on Duncan? He should get it every time

04-25-2009, 06:00 PM

at least san antonio have 2 of the last 3 in san antonio. so if they win at home and steal the game in Dallas, you never know.

in 2007, Lakers were up 3-1 against Phoenix. same situation. except it was 2nd seed v. 7th seed, and the season records were different. :D

What kind of coaching changes do you want him to make? Lineup changes or plays?

I think his plays aren't working out down the stretch. Not sure about the lineup though.

I think his plays aren't working out down the stretch. Not sure about the lineup though.

I want him to stop being so stubborn. Why on earth would you keep playing Finley and Bonner, when they arent even attemping to score, and are cold. If they arent doing any of that, they are useless because their defense is awful.

I guess Pop didnt see when the Spurs were playing good, Bowen was in the game. Play Gooden/KT more as well because they are better defenders/rebounders. They can bring more then just scoring like Bonner.

I dont understand why he wont play Hill more as well..or why he benched Mason instead of Finley.

Just so frusturating watching those guys keep shooting and missing....or being girls and not taking the open shot, then get burned over and over on defense.
