Jason Kidd's three pointer with 2.5 seconds left lifted the Mavericks over the Celtics 101-97.
The Celtics wilted down the stretch. They went scoreless over the final 2:43.
And there seemed to be a defensive breakdown on the Mavs possession which resulted in the Kidd three pointer. When Dirk Nowitzki got the ball on the block (with KG on his back) and started to make a move, both Perk and Ray converged on him. Dirk kicked the ball out to wide open Kidd, who after pump-faking Ray past him, nailed the shot. Is a triple-team really necessary for Dirk?
I demand a recount on all of Jason Kidd's three-pointers. How the hell can he be 3rd all-time in made three point field goals?
Big game from Perk – 13 points, 12 rebounds.
KG had another run-in tonight. This time he pushed J.J. Barea after Barea fouled him. When a referee stepped in to separate the players, KG knocked the referee's hand off his body. Donny Marshall says the league is getting tired of KG's antics and wouldn't be surprised to see Garnett suspended for making contact with the official. Sigh…
UPDATE: Jermaine O'Neal had surgery on his left knee. He hopes to return in 6-8 weeks. Guess the rehab wasn't going so well.
