I know the fouls were one sided, but come on all 3 of our centers committed 5 fouls each on Shaq.
We were definately playing hack a Shaq, and it was working 10 times better than the double team before. I thought it was a great move by Avery, but FUCK, why do you stop? Why do you hack Shaq 4 times, to get into bonus, but not ever again in OT??? That was the key fuckup to winning that game. The team wasn't 100 percent, but they were working pretty decently. Dirk wasn't in it like he normally is, but they were making it work. Avery is just too young to make those kind of decisions. He was simply out coached by Riley. He is vet.
There were a couple of bad calls, but come on, really, if you watch any regular season basketball, there are plenty of bad calls. It happens, you get over it. If you can't play solid basketball, then you can't win. The Mavs have to step up and play their game, they haven't done that since game 2 of this series. Where's the fast paced game? Let's tire Shaq out, he was hardly even sweating last night. Let's push the pace, and win this already.
