Dallas will face Miami in the NBA Finals
By identity on Jun 03, 2006
Steve Nash's face tells the story. Giving his all, but no more miracle finishes. No more overachieving. The Dallas Mavericks came back from an 18 point deficit to win over the Suns 102-93 in convincing fashion.
Congratulations to the Mavericks, who advance to the finals for the first time in their history. And congratulations, Terry Sigle. Your team won this year!
Tonight was bittersweet. It was agonizing to lose, but considering that most people thought the Suns would be a sub-500 team without Amare Stoudamire, the Suns had a wonderful season. Steve Nash repeating as MVP, Boris Diaw recognized as the most improved player, two seven-game playoff series wins, NBA highest scoring team and most of the active rotation achieving career-level statistics -- it has been a season to remember. Next year Amare will be back -- can't wait!
