dallas mavericks vs golden state warriors in the first round of the playoffs
April 19, 2007 9:55am CST
season series, golden state (3 wins), dallas mavericks (1 win). it seems so unfortunate for the 67-15 mavericks to face the only team they have a losing record in the forst round of the playoffs. heavily loaded with quality players led by jason richardson and baron davis, the golden state warriors might give the mavericks a good fight in the playoffs, or maybe an upset. but the number 1 seeded mavericks for sure will have something up in their sleeves for this match-up. dirk nowitzki, josh howard, jason terry, jerry stackhouse and the rest, it looks like the mavericks have the most balanced and deepest line-up in the league. will the mavericks finally win it this year? or will the warriors add something to their history this season by not just ending a 13 year playoff drought but also beating the number 1 seed and repeat history (1994 sonics-nuggets)?

I would predict that Warriors will win in Game 7.As expected Warriors stun the Mavs on Game 1.Baron Davis scored 26 of his 33 in the second half, including 19 in the third quarter, to lead the eighth-seeded Golden State Warriors to a shocking 97-85 road victory over the top-seeded Dallas Mavericks on Sunday. The Warriors outscored Dallas by nine in the final 5:30 and held the Mavericks to just 35 percent shooting from the field for the game. Davis added 14 rebounds, eight assists and three steals, while Stephen Jackson poured in 23 points. Josh Howard led the Mavericks with 21 points and 13 rebounds.
