Golden State Drops Another One As Peja Stojakovic Shines in Dallas. Mavericks 101-Warriors 73

Posted: March 26, 2011 in Golden State Basketball


What’s up sports fans? This is becoming more and more depressing to watch. I do mean watching Golden State lose games. I mean c’mon, this has to stop. Being a Warriors fan is hard right now. It seems they just can’t do anything to win a game. These road trips have to be the worst I’ve seen in a while. I’ll have to do some more research, but eeeeeck! Dallas used an old veteran to beat them and seal the win. A former California NBA player too. Yeah, remember Peja Stojakovic?

You know used to drop bombs from way beyond the arc when he was a Sacramento King. Well now somebody in the league decided to use him to beat us. That somebody is Mavericks owner Mark Cuban, and they are taking full advantage of it. Dirk Nowitski had 20pts., and Peja had 17 and Dallas cruised for the win, which allows them to go to the playoffs for the 11 straight time. Peja couldn’t play for six games because he had a stiff neck, but he did return only to take us out of our game.

“Obviously, Stojakovic coming back and getting it going was a big factor for us,” Carlisle said. “He’s been shooting the ball at that level for 20 years.” It was his experience the killed the Warriors because really we had no defense for the way the Mavericks were shooting. It makes you wonder if the Keith Smart is addressing any of the obvious concerns that fans and spectators can see during games. Monta Ellis had 18pts, and David Lee did contribute with another double double 10pts. and 12 rebounds. It just seems that no matter how hard they try our guys from the north bay can’t get a win. Once again the Mavericks bench made us look tired.

Tyson Chandler grabbed 15 rebounds, Rodrigue Beaubois had 15 pts., and 7 foot Center Ian Mahinmi also procured 13 rebounds. With that type of production Dallas took control of the game. As a matter of fact the only time the game acutually got close was in the third quarter. Monta Ellis hit a shot that brought the Warriors within 4pts. at 60-56.  “We missed a ton of open shots and opportunities,” Warriors coach Keith Smart said. Golden State didn’t have Andris Biedrins he was out for his second missed game due to a sprained left ankle. This is the second time they’ve met in five days and in the first meeting the Warriors looked in the beginning like it was going to be a contest, but by the end of the game it was the usual result with Dallas finishing with a 112-106 win.

This was the six straight win for the Mavericks against Golden State a position they are used to. There isn’t much to blog about on this game Dallas continue to win Warriors continue to loose. Is there any way Keith Smart and his coaching staff can change their situation for next season. Tell me what you think. Remember folks it’s ALLBAYSPORTS.COM. Bay Area Sports Magnified!
