NBA Playoffs - Day 34

Mavs Run Suns To Death

Dallas 95 Phoenix 88

The Mavs and Suns tried to run all night but Dallas kept on going to win and seize the lead in their series , 2-1.
Coach AverY Johnson threw the full force of his bench to keep the depleted Suns gasping for air. ' We were tired. ' We just play without the usual aggresiveness and attitude ' both Steve Nash and his coach said. ' Do you think Raja Bell' s presence could have help ' asked a reporter . Steve answered in affirmative but I think he meant anyone who can run would be welcome. The Suns were really tired from all the running that ex Laker great Gail Goodrich said ' The Suns were fatigued . Active Shawn Marion was just standing in one spot most of the time ' . On the other hand , the Mavs threw fresh bodies at the Suns all the time. Van Horn , Harris , Griffin and the Mavs bench. Not all of them. Eric Dampier did not see a second of action. In fact , the first 3 games of the series , coach Johnson relied heavily on back up center Sagana Diop. ' I think he only played more than 30 minutes in about 3 games ' said TNT Analyst Steve Kerr . Then , there is Dirk Nowizki of course. Dirk was shooting 3's again. ' He's truly one of Germany's sports heroes today' said Kerr . I wonder if Dirk would be one of Hitler's Youth had he been born earlier . They say the present Pope , who is German , was. Pope Benedictine's association with the Nazi Youth was highlighted again during his latest visit to Poland and the concentration camps . It's good that now it's just Heill Mark !

There was one testy moment in the game . It started when Mav Howard gave a driving Tim Thomas a hard foul . Thomas actually played it cool. However , on the way to the free throw line , Thomas barged into the Mavs players on a conference . I guess Tim thinks that Nowitzki and the rest of the Mavs are all ' fugazis . Like Kenyon Martin then playing for New Jersey. He called the former Net a ' fugazi ' and challenged him to a boxing match. This was after a hard foul given him by K Mart's teammate , Jason Collins ( see photo ) . ' Fugazi ' was a term used by Al Pacino and Johnnie Depp in the mob movie Donnie Brasco. It is supposed to mean fake toughness.
Dirk Nowitski is not a ' fugazi ' . Dirk doesn't understand Italian as he is German. Instead , Tim can call him ' fu Nazi ' !

Mr. Depp are you a fugazi ?
