Mavs vs. Suns

I went to my first NBA game today at the American Airlines Center in Dallas. The Mavericks took on Shaq, Steve Nash, and the Phoenix Suns. The first half had enough excitement to last the entire game. All the Mavs were on- Kidd, Nowitzki, Howard, Barea, Terry, the whole gang. You just couldn't stop 'em. Kidd had an amazing game, getting a season high 20 assists in regulation, and passing Magic Johnson for No. 3 on the career assists list. At the end of the first half, the game was over. With the score 78-59, Josh Howard hit an incredible 71 foot buzzer beater to end the first half at 81-59; the icing on the cake. Even with Shaq playing like a man among boys, Phoenix couldn't seem to get anything going the second half either. The second half was much less entertaining. I mainly spent it determining how much of a lead the Mavs would have at the end (20 pts...30 pts...40 pts). With the second and third strings in, the game finally ended at 140-116, the Mavs virtually taking away the Suns' shot in the playoffs. Overall a great time, a great win, and a great day.
