Unbelievable athletic feats are happening every third night long after I pass out from the ether fumes: the #8 Golden State Warriors keep beating the top-seeded Dallas Mavericks. Last night the Warriors won 103-99 to take a 3-1 series lead, and the hierarchy of basketball greatness in the present NBA stands on the precipice of collapse. As always in these times of Association-related confusion, I turn to the savants over at FreeDarko (written before last night's game):
At this point, an eventual Dallas win would squelch these neurotic rumblings. If the Warriors took the series, though, our only choices would be denial or total anarchy. Because the way they're playing, and the way Dallas is responding, that's anything but luck bearing down on an Achilles. That, my friends, is what you call proof through revelation.
I'm not sure what "proof through revelation" is, but that FreeDarko post also has a picture of a donkey on a tennis court, so I assume they know what they're talking about.
Other NBA news: The Suns took a 3-1 lead behind 17-point, 23-assist performance from Nash and 27/21 from Amare. And Tenacious D loved it… Heat get swept on account of oldness (as covered by Kevin yesterday)… and the Nets destroyed the Raptors 102-81 to take a 3-1 series lead. New Jersey over Canadia. Think about that for a while.
