Congratulations to Dallas on not being down 0-2

Tonight's game was disappointing, but I think the Warriors are still well-positioned to win this series in 6.  Here's why:

  1. We only got strong performances from Jax and Ellis and were still very competitive for 2 1/2 quarters.
  2. Dirk was made to look like an average player again.  He made 7 field goals, and at least three of those were on putbacks or a scrambled offensive set.  He didn't get much in Dallas' normal offense.
  3. Dampier and Diop were invisible - they combined for 4 points and 8 boards in 40 minutes.
  4. We were incredibly sloppy with the ball, yet still were within 10 points with around 6 minutes left.  Any sort of decent game from the Warriors would have kept this game really tight down to the end.
This Game 2 result doesn't change the fact that the Warriors know how to contain Dirk, aren't paying for playing small, and currently have the homecourt advantage in this series.  

I'm looking forward to the series coming to a town full of authentically exuberant basketball fans who don't need the PA guy to tell them when to cheer.
