The Dallas Mavericks beat the Golden State Warriors 118-112 but are still down in the series 3-2. Dirk stepped up and was helped by the home crowd. If Dirk continues to be aggresive the Mavs still have a chance. Dallas just has to pretend they're at home on the road and they will play better.

As I said Dirk had a huge game and finished with 30 points and 12 boards. Dirk took advantage of the glass and with the small ball lineup in it should be easy to keep it up. Jerry Stackhouse came off the bench with 15 points and 3 boards. Stack needs to get 20+ for Dallas to win game 6.

The Nets lost to the Raptors 98-96 but lead the series 3-2. Nachbar had a chance to win the game with a three but missed the shot. The Nets needed to know Nachbar was not making shots and given the ball to someone who had been making them. If you're the Raptors you feel lucky the Nets lost and scared about possibly losing game 6.
