So was it the way you expected, and what do you expect will happen next?

Not me. I had an idea going into Game 3 about how the series would progress, and I was pretty sure about it. But it didn't happen that way at all.

On second thought, no I wasn't completely off. I wasn't surprised by any of the starters' play. Wesley was the one who stepped up on Thursday. Checking the box scores, the Mavs have been beating us in most of the usual indicators (boards, assists, turnovers). The foul line made a difference, and thankfully we made a bunch tonight, but we obviously can't count on any of that come Monday. The one place where we're consistently beating them, however, is point distribution. We're getting 5 or 6 guys in double figures to their 3. And our sixth top scorer (Wallace) is bringing down 10 and 11 in each win? Those boards are nice considering Marcus only had 5 tonight, and we're getting creamed on second chances. Chandler and Haywood combined for 7 offensive boards. Guess which was the only Blazer with 2 tonight.

If you guessed Brandon Roy, you get a gold star. 

If there's any person reading this who wasn't honestly shocked at Roy's performance in this game, man, I really hope you'll reply so we all can know your name. Now I truthfully predicted dreamed the first quarter of Game 5 would be similar to this. If you don't believe me, check my last post. But... well, those 8 minutes may well have been the best basketball I've ever seen played in my life.

Well, I'll just leave it at that.
