In the 4th quarter of this game there were players ejected because of fights. Also there was a fan ejected because of throwing an object. Do you think the mavs started the fight because they were frustrated, or because they are tired of being pushed around by the Lakers?

I think it was frustration from the beating they were taking. But it was Jason Terry, and he has been known for throwing cheap shots in the past.

not at all.basketball is a physical game and it is human nature to fight back when you are pushed to your limits.the pressure is so high right now since we are nearing the playoffs.the lakers and mavs are a potential match up so this early,they want to assert their dominance against each other.

Hmmm...I only got to watch the second half of the game but the Lakers were playing aggressively. It kind of had this playoff atmosphere to it. But I do think that it was a lot of frustration on the Mavs' part. They were losing by 15 points and they couldn't really hang with the Lakers since they aren't known for being a physical team. So, I would imagine that emotions were high when Terry decided to shove Blake after that foul. But the thing I did notice was that none of the other Dallas players on the court immediately tried to interfere after the altercation. Usually, when something like that breaks out everyone on the court gets into it.

Hi there I haven't really watch the game live or full but I able to watch the highlights. Oh well, Mavs are frustrated but not being physically challenge, physically there only problem is artest and not Blake which where the altercation started. Blake is known the be a good guy in the game and that Terry's move is soooo lame! I am glad my lakers won..yehey! lol. Have a nice day.
