Who Deserves 'The Dirkie' For Win At Minny?
The Dallas Mavericks led by KIDDIRK versus the T'wolves led by Ricky Rubio and Kevin Love (come up with your own nifty contraction, the ones I got just sound ... wrong). Some might say a passing of the torch has taken place. Not tonight and not yet; like with anything in life torches only pass when they're ripped out of the holders' hands.
The T'wolves kept things nervous'y, but the good guys finally put them away late. There was a mini-Minny rally -- and Dirk Nowitzki himself expressed some postgame disappointment that Dallas didn't blow 'em out -- but the only reason the score is close is because of some quick garbage-time production. Final 104-97.
Yes young ones, you can have this torch. When you pry it out of this Dirkie's cold metal hand.
