NBA giants the Dallas Mavericks have been cut down by 6 brave Warriors. Monta Ellis and Anothony Morrow were brilliant in a massive road win for the franchise. Ellis scored a season high 37 points and was helped by Morrow's 27. Ellis was fearless today taking it to the rim at will not caring who was in his way. On the other hand Morrow was on fire from downtown hitting 6 of 8 threes. That guy can flat out shoot the rock. He has such a quick release, yet so accurate. Today Dallas totally fell into the run and gun style of the Warriors and couldn't get out of it. They were poor, turning the ball over and forcing up bad shots. The Mavericks turned the ball over 18 times to the Warriors 21. Stephen Curry was big time in the clutch, hitting a three ball and a floater over Dirk which was sweet. Dirk was held without a field goal for the last fifteen minutes of the game. That's crazy when you think he is the go to man for the Mavs. The final score was 111-103.
New Jersey have slumped to a 0-14 record. They are three losses away from equalling the worst record in NBA history. Today they couldn't match the intensity of the Denver Nuggets eventually going down 101-87. I really do feel for the Nets as they have had so many injuries and have had some heartbreaking losses. I really do hope they can string a few wins together or have atleast one. Devin Harris is back and Courtney Lee returned to action today so maybe there is some sort of hope in the coming games.
BIRD FREE TO FLY
Ex Cronulla Shark player Greg Bird has escaped a jail sentence today. The judge was said to believe the story of the girlfriend being the agressor. How much was she paid to tell the judge such utter bullshit? She is an absolute idiot to let such a coward be free. Greg Bird deserves all the punishment in the world. He knew he was in the wrong when he tried to dump it on his best mate. Surely the judge should have considered that. It all doesn't make sense. Football players get away with anything these days! What do you think?
UEFA CHAMPIONS LEAGUE
Early this morning Liverpool continued it's horror season by bowing out of the Champions League tournament. Even with one more match to play Liverpool can't qualify. They are copping a bagging from the United and Chelsea fans. I love a good rilvary between fans, especially in the soccer there is so much love and hate. One of my favourite jabs are "Liverpool meet Europa League, Europa League meet Liverpool" a persons reply was "they better get to know each other well". Barcelona took care of business at home against Italian power houses Inter Milan. Two goals in the first 30 minutes from Barcelona put the game out of reach for Inter. Final score 2-0.
