This crowd has gone deadly silent, a Cinderella story outta nowhere.
For the third time in the playoffs the Little Mavericks have quieted the crowd by closing out the series on the road.
First, they handily put away the Memphis Grizzlies in a four game sweep, winning the clincher in Memphis.
Second, they weathered the storm of the NBA Champion San Antonio Spurs who had come back from being down 3 games to 1 and being down by 20 points in Game 7. In overtime, Dallas shocked many, including the crowd who were silenced as Dallas said hasta la vista, baby, winning the clincher in San Antonio.
Tonight, they defeated the back to back MVP Steve Nash & the Phoenix suns as the Mavs overcame a 18 point deficit to win 102-93, ensuring that another crowd would become deadly silent as this Cinderella story progressed.
Congratulations to the Little Mavericks. During the playoffs they've won 6 road games; that's 6 of 12 that have come on the road. In other words, 6 times they've quieted the crowd. Though they have home court advantage against Shaq & the Miami Heat, Dallas has proven it can win on the road and can clinch there, if necessary.
Tonight's win was the first Western Conference title for the Little Mavericks in their 26 year history. They need four more wins to complete the Cinderella story, going from the laughingstock of the NBA to the champs.
