LOL. You're exactly right. If Dallas wanted to have a chance of winning this series, they never should have made the mistake of winning a game . . .

i'm not sure if this was an epic comeback or an epic collapse. probably both. totally disappointed.
post #3697 of 27236
I've never seen a team make these epic comebacks so calmly and collected. (actually i only listened to this last comeback) down 15 against the lakers/down 15 against OKC, down 15 against MIA... "meh.. ok yup we'll just go about our business" in the NBA usually a big comeback is this huge furious run with a bunch of dunks/layups and threes by one or two guys on fire. But dallas kinda just goes about their business and runs their offense and clamps down juuust a liiitttle more on defense and proceeds to comeback in a nonchalant manner.

Just watched the highlights since I got in, looked like a collapse on defense.

Man, I hate Lebron (A LOT) but even I think they are making a too big of a deal over that "celebration". Even I can see that if it were any other team/players that it wouldn't have been a problem.

I do love how the pattern seems to develop. When Dallas came back against the Lakers in games 1 and 3 it wasn't that the Mavs played well, but that the Lakers just collapsed. When Dallas came back from down 16 in the 4th against OKC it wasn't that the Mavs played well it was that the young team choked under the pressure. Now with the Heat, it isn't that the Mavs played well, it's that the Heat just quit or got over-confident or got defensively careless or whatever.

At some point, folks might need to realize that this is a good team and may have had something to do with all of these coincidental "collapses".
