Compared to the joy that usually comes with knocking off the Mavs, the overwhelming emotion from Nelson after the game was relief. He's a Warrior, as we all know from his rotations (or lack thereof), but he made a point of commenting how happy the overall energy made him tonight. Harrington and Barnes got special mention, as did Ellis for his super-human ability to bounce back from hard hits. The post-game comments from the player betrayed a bit more confidence. Bounce-back games for Al and Kelenna obviously did a lot to lift spirits, but it was also nice to stare down the main rival for the final playoff spot and see a team much less frightening then we remember. March Madness? Wait until we get to April.
