Game 5 belonged to the Spurs. They went on to win the game 109-103.
Their offense executed the pick and roll perfectly and the Mavericks had no answer for it.
The Spurs scored 26 more points in the paint than the Mavs as the Mavs couldn’t stop the back cuts of the Spurs all game.
Thiago Splitter was in rare form as he put in 17 points, 12 rebounds, and 5 assists.
For the Mavs, Dirk Nowitzki finally found his shot as he scored 26 points. Vince Carter played well as well hitting 28 points adding 7 three-pointers on 9 attempts.
The Mavericks played ok but that won’t win games in the playoffs. They need something. They need more energy on defense. They need to not turn the ball over as much.
And most importantly, they need us fans tonight. All fans in attendance or watching on TV, be MFFL Strong tonight. Let your voice be heard throughout the city.
I will be at the game covering all the action. & I will be back here tonight for the post game.
Thanks for reading… No prediction today as I have no idea what the outcome will be. This series has been going back and forth.
