I'm expecting Dirk to have a big game, and big first half. Brendan Haywood is sure to have more than 2 points, and I can see the Mavs wanting to get Duncan off the floor as much as possible. Spurs just need to play their game and continue to get contributions from Jefferson, Hill, and McDyess both offensively and defensively..... I'm kinda pissed because I had an opportunity to go to this game for free, 235 dollar tickets (a piece) about 20 feet behind the visitors bench.... but I have to work. :/
memo to refs, despite the fact that manu is 6 inches shorter than dirk, wrapping him up is still a foul. This applies to everyone on the spurs. Being shorter does not give you the right to wrap dirk up. This also applies to handchecks. The rules are the rules.
