Tuning in to 103.3FM ESPN Radio this afternoon, I got to hear Randy Galloway and Little Ball of Hate shooting the breeze with Don Nelson. Randy loves Nelly with a serious man-crush. Not sure how much of it is actual professional admiration and how much is a love of self (old, white, overweight alcoholics must stick together, you know).

According to ESPN, the Mavs haven’t won at home against Golden State since 2004. Tonight however, the Mavs gave the Warriors a sound thrashing. The final score was 121-99. Dirk Nowitzki led the Mavs tonight with 29 points, 6 assists, and 8 rebounds.

It’s good to know that the Mavericks can compete with Golden State, since the embarrassing first round playoff loss to Golden State. Hopefully, all this strangeness mid-season will gel into a winning post-season. Stay tuned.
