Mavs 111, Rox 106: Who Deserves The Dirkie?

A big lead. A big lead almost lost. And in the end, a big win ... and a 'Dirkie' trophy to give away for Player of the Game. C'mon in and vote!

Phew! Dallas got caught back on their heels a bit after a this-is-just-too-easy first quarter. The Rockets, poster boys for fighting through adversity, just refused to go away. In the end, Dallas hit the free-throws they needed to and Houston didn't get the threes they needed. There's the door and what's your hurry, 111-106. For the fist that slammed the door, we have a trophy.

Whose fist gets the trophy, y'all?
