Having someone's number, and being able to legally defend someone is two different things.

I didn't really see a lot wrong with Collison's aggression, and I commend him on being the only player in 3 series' to actually be able to slow Dirk down. His offense was great (Collison) as well. Problem is that late in the game, when the game is on the line, they are going to start calling more fouls for holds.

The problem is that there are others on the team who could probably fill the PG role better than him at this point in time. Hell... I'd give Collison the ball 3x as much as Westbrook. The Mavs have someone who I beleive will be better than Westbrook in the long-haul (Beaubois), but he's not playing because Carisle believes he is too "iffy" at this point in his career. Although, he could have gotten rookie of the year a couple years ago had he actually played more than 2 minutes a game.

How did the Mav's win? haha...statistics are great--but ever get the 'feeling' of the game...attitude...and determination of the players really tells the tale better?

Agreed that you could almost hear the wind coming out of the 'Thunder' in the fourth quarter Monday evening...momentum is everything in the NBA playoffs...look for the same situation this evening...home sweet home for the Mav's...bring on the Heat! Losing in overtime is extremely difficult in the long run---what a difference five minutes makes...

Collison already has Dirk's number, as he well displayed in the last game. 2nite, Collison shuts down Dirk with his counter Dirk Snirk, and he and the team subdue the not so much a Kidd anymore ..providing an even greater comeback than last game's Mav rebound

yes, 2nite ..youth and preserverance finally overcome old age and trechery. Young THUNDER finally figure out ..YES! WE ARE THAT GOOOOOD...! THUNDER sustain their containment plan and load up the boards with points and rebounds... THUNDER by 10! (and this time ...I MEAN IT..!)

in the last game of the THUNDER v Mav series, the THUNDER were so great at containing Dirk, they forgot all about him till he snuk up on them in the 4th quarter! ..keep with that Dirk containment plan and DON'T FORGET THE 'KIDD' threat..!

as for 2nite: Still (despite my previous %) predicting a THUNDER WIN. Hardin comes with Collison, Durant, Westbrook to form a strong tetrahedron of inpenetrable strength and accuracy. THUNDER 'D' has already proven they're up to sequestering Mav 'O'. Now the young men need to ponder their previous performances ..and grasp the reality of belief in themselves. THUNDER do it 2nite.

Westbrook is young Scott. Give him some time to mature ..he'll turn out great..
