NBA Playoffs Western Conference Semi-Finals, Game 3 , American Airlines Center, Dallas, TX -

The Dallas Mavericks sent the Back to Back Champions, the showtime Los Angeles Lakers packing home to watch the rest of the playoffs from their big screen tv’s. Everyone I spoke to thought the Mavs would have a much harder time in this series playing the Lakers than they actually did. After all, the Lakers were after a 3rd Finals Championship in a row this year with Phil Jackson retiring after this season. This series began at the Staples Center in Los Angeles with the Mavs stealing both games from the Lakers and stunning all the celebrities that were there, even Jack Nicholson.

Here is Game 3 in Dallas on Friday May 6 at the American Airlines Center with the Dallas Mavericks defeating the Los Angeles Lakers 98-92

This (below) is Matt Barnes. He was one of my favorite role players until he said this “Me & the Golden St homies laid out the blueprint on how to beat Dallas.. “PUNK’EM“.

Well evidently the Punking that the Lakers tried to do didn’t work and resulted in a 4-0 SWEEP of the Lakers. I think Barnes needs a new engineer to draw him up some new blueprints… Homie!
