I haven’t watched an NBA game all year, but I decided to watch this one, because it’s basically Clash of the Titans between the two best teams in the NBA. Dallas leads the league in wins, just finished a 17-game winning streak, and hasn’t lost at home since 2006. Phoenix also has a 17-game streak to its credit, and the second best record in the NBA.
Phoenix erased a 10-point deficit in the final minutes, culminating with a wild 3-point heave by Steve Nash with 2 seconds left. In OT, Phoenix jumped out to a 5-point lead with a minute left, but Dallas tied it with a 3 with :05 left.
They’re in the 2nd OT now. I could watch this all day. :)
If nothing else, it makes a case against parity, because it’s hella fun to watch two powerhouse teams go at it in the regular season. I’m thinking of Cowboys/Niners of the '90s, the recent Yankees/Red Sox series, rivalries which set the stage for memorable playoff clashes. Great stuff.
