Yes, we're a bit troubled by some things. Minny shot five percent above its season norm, including another one of those You Got To Be Flippin' Kidding Me buzzer beaters. And it took a long time for the Dallas Mavericks to lock down defensively ... But in the final minutes Dallas did so, made the foul shots, and registered the 104-96 win.
But nevermind the negatives for now; Who gets the gold?
