The Mavs (and the local media) were understandably furious following a humiliating home loss to a rag-tag group of Warriors: “And those six bodies? Three of them played all 48 minutes … and yet right when the Warriors should’ve been corpses – for instance, when Dallas had them down 98-89 with six minutes left – the Mavs let them live by being outscored 24-7 down the stretch. Yes, Rick. The Warriors played half of their six dudes the full 48. You tortured your poor Mavs by playing a couple of them for 40 minutes. ‘There are losses,’ Dirk Nowitzki said, ‘and then there are bad losses. This was one of them.’”
