Mavs wax the Clippers 117-94...1 game to go!

Shawn Marion returned last night and scored 21 pts. Dirk had 25 pts and only played 22 mins. It's been quite pleasant to see the Mavs manhandle the teams teams that should be destroying as the playoffs near. Their intensity has definitely picked up. They've won 7 of their last 9 and can finish no lower than the 3rd seed now. It's very nice to see them get a little momentum back as the playoffs start in just a few days.

So, unless they lose to the Spurs (HA), they will be the #2 seed. They could draw either the Spurs, or OKC. Most likely OKC. I think the Mavs are 2-2 against OKC this year. OKC is on the rise, but I don't know if they have the experience necessary to win a 7 game series. It's crazy to see how that team has grown, and how good they are in just a short amount of time. I'd like to see them have some success in the playoffs, but not at the cost of the Mavs.


I'm glad the Mavs won't be drawing Portland in the first round. That has the GS upset debacle written all over it.

It's been nice hearing all the talking heads this year, putting the Mavs up as the strongest team in the West (even over LA). It's a nice change of pace. They're still riddled with East Coast bias, but this will do I suppose.

Phony Parker and crew will get murdered. Just like the last 2-3 teams the Mavs have beaten. None of them have been very close.

The 2 alley-oops to Beaubois in the first quarter combined with the off-the-backboard ally to Marion made my week!

According to this article OKC is playing LA.

Mavericks will face either Spurs or Blazers in first round.
Monday's NBA games settled some of the questions of playoff positioning in the Western Conference.

Oklahoma City locked up the eighth seed with a 103-95 loss at Portland. The Thunder will face the LA Lakers in the first round.

The Mavericks' 117-94 win over the Clippers means they will finish no worse than third. Dallas will face either San Antonio or Portland in the opening round.

San Antonio is on a roll as the playoffs approach, having won 19 of its last 27 games. The Spurs cruised to a 133-111 victory Monday over lowly Minnesota.

The bad news for the Mavericks is that San Antonio's starters were able to get plenty of rest heading into Wednesday's regular-season finale against Dallas at American Airlines Center. No starter played more than 22 minutes in the blowout.

The Blazers, meanwhile, rode Marcus Camby's 30 points and 13 rebounds to beat the Thunder.
But Portland was without star guard Brandon Roy, who has a torn meniscus in his right knee that will require surgery.

The surgery would keep Roy out for 4-6 weeks, but he may opt to delay the surgery and play through the injury in the playoffs.

This puts a serious dent in the Blazers' playoff hopes. Roy, who suffered the injury in Sunday's game against the Lakers, leads the team with 21.5 points per game.

It would be nice to see OKC give the Lakers some trouble. Get them tired for the later rounds. I just hope we don't mess around and let the Blazers or Spurs tire us out. I think the Spurs are the easier of the two, but only because of age and they are beat up.

The west is wide open, anything could happen.

Spurs must hold the tie breaker over OKC then. Going strictly off of records, SA is one game up on OKC. If SA loses to Dallas tomorrow (which is a 90% probability, IMO), and OKC wins one more, they would end with the same record. Leaving it to a tie breaker, that SA obviously holds, if OKC has already locked #8.


I didn't take a tie breaker in to account, because I only know by memory Dallas' tie breakers.
