Spurs Advance to NBA Finals

     The Mavericks pulled off a great come from behind win in game 5, but ran out of gas to fall tonight 90-78. The Mavericks played again without Dirk Nowitzki and used the same energy that they used in the 4th quarter of game 5 to build a 6 point lead going into halftime of game 6.

     In the third quarter the Mavericks continued to get balanced scoring from thier bench to build a 71-58 lead with 10:53 ramaining in the fourth. That is when the birage of threes kicked in for the Spurs. The Spurs hit 6 straight 3-pointers to open up the 4th, which cracked the game wide open. Steve Kerr who played with the Worl Champion Chicago Bulls, and is the most accurate 3 point shooter in NBA history delivered deadly blows to Dallas.

     Kerr came into the game late in the 4th and hit all four 3-pointers that he shot and added 3 assists along with two rebounds in 13 minutes of play."I figured just let it fly and see waht happens. This is one of the best nights of my career, ranks right up there with anything that happened in Chicago."
